From time to time, we experience some troubles when we work as teams. When two users work on the same diagram, it can be difficult. Changes appear in the diagrams which can be difficult to resolve. In the next edition, they mentioned that they will be including some new diagrams relating to infographics. If they can improve the infographics and they're backed by a database, it would be very useful.

I do not think I really used it enough to find a lot of things that I did not like. It really did what I expected it to do. I did have some connectivity issues between Visual Paradigm and SQL Server in one instance but that would be the only thing that I think might need to be addressed as an issue. It is hard to tell if it was the product or something else within SQL Server.

I'm not sure what is missing within the solution. We haven't used it long enough to really dive deep into its features and usability, as we've only worked on a few projects. There might be a better solution on the market, however, this is the only solution I'm really familiar with at this point. The solution could be more compatible with other products in the future.

The solution is not user-friendly. It uses a lot of memory and CPU. You have to have a good computer to use it. The solution should allow for more integration between PowerDesigner and Visual Paradigm.

I would like to see something for visualizing innovation work maps. I created my own template in LibreOffice Draw, but it would be nice if there were something like that in Visual Paradigm. What I do now is to use the export functionality in Visual Paradigm to save the images and then place them into LibreOffice Draw. That way, I can make a nice, A0 paper-sized visualization of the innovation work map. It would be nice if it were integrated so that I could do it all within the Visual Paradigm, and have one export. The other thing that needs improvement is pricing. I have considered halting my license and not upgrading from the current version because of this.

I would like to see the ability to easily export to groupware, such as Atlassian Confluence.
