Before you start implementing No Magic MagicDraw, I would definitely recommend that you look at other solutions. You could take a look at Sparks and compare both Sparks and MagicDraw before you proceed with MagicDraw.

I would rate MagicDraw a nine out of ten because of the price. Enterprise Architect has a lot of bugs and MagicDraw is a lot more accurate and flexible. It's a level better.

I am a sole proprietor consultant and I work within teams that are a mix of contractors and government employees. Also, I am an adjunct professor. My advice goes back to the 80/20 rule. There is 20% of the basic fundamental capabilities that you will get you 80% of what you need or more. My advice is to have a standard framework for a model within the enterprise. In terms of a standard hierarchy structure, know where you put the requirements or the logical architecture. Also, know how it changes depending on whether you are dealing with a system or with a system's assistance. The system's assistance depends on whether you have a directed governance environment or a federal, or coalition of the willing. Because of the issues, I am experiencing with the OMG, I would rate this solution a five out of ten.

I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. I know there are some little nuisances here and there. Still, it works. I've had good success with it. It's got a lot of capability. It's just a little pricey. On the market right now, there is a lot of software out there that's pretty pricey, and many out there that are a lot more expensive. Like ARIS, for example.

My advice to anybody who is designing complex projects, like defense projects or space projects, is that they have to use this program or one like it. All of the stakeholders have to understand that they need to review the product using models, in addition to the documents. Following this will ensure that it is very easy to understand the product that is being designed. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

I would advise someone considering this solution to do a proof of concept. Ensure that your engineers have training, not just in the tool, but also in the language they're going to language speaking. I would rate it an eight out of ten.

We are the largest MagicDraw user in Hungary. It's good software, but there is little to no market penetration. People don't know about it or use it. Where is the revenue of the software? There has to be more awareness as Enterprise Architects. The design itself is nothing. Design with consulting is something, but design with confirmation and consulting is the real product. This is the message; without confirmation, there is no product. My advice is to import the design into Confluence, put in the effort through discussion, review it, redesign it again, and then it should work. The business is important for MagicDraw, but the vendors are as well. Because I can design, but I cannot sell it, I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Magic Draw has capabilities that I'm sure I haven't even touched on, but at least for what I'm attempting to achieve, it provides the most capability to meet my needs at this point in time.
