Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with IBM Rational System Architect.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
I didn't use the solution for very long, so it's hard to go too in-depth with what the solution may have been lacking. In the commercial approach, a lot of implication is on the technical. I wasn't really well supported when I was using it, which made it difficult. The integration with all other modules could be a bit better. If you want make it a universal solution, you have to add some items, and find the modules you need. That's not too helpful for clients. They need to have a package that can satisfy clients fully on every project. The solution needs to better integrate with other products, like Microsoft.
I find that almost every feature related to the models requires improvement. For example, I would like to see more trendy models, the look and feel of the models can be improved. This solution can be more user-friendly and easier to use, with better dashboards. The impact analysis feature is in need of heavy improvement. The is a standalone product that lacks integration with a business process automation engine. I would like to see the workflow improved, where it integrates seamlessly with the artifacts.
There needs to be more information at the outset about how to use the solution and how to deploy it. The deployment process needs improvement. The solution needs to develop some models that can give us the possibility to model new features, and new problems. The product, in general, needs a bit of improvement and should think about adding a model for artificial intelligence. It would benefit us greatly.
I'm looking for your recommendations, tips, tools, or any other method on how I can export/convert IBM Rational System Architect data when moving to the Alfabet Enterprise Architecture Management product (by Software AG).
Thanks in advance for your help!
