Sparx Systems has released the newest version of its flagship Enterprise Architect modeling & management software for enterprise architects, business analysts and software developers. Enterprise Architect 11 is a major release with hundreds of new enhancements and technologies making it one of the most interesting tools for modeling, requirements definition and management, and model driven development. With improved capabilities for accessing models, model management, collaboration and reporting, the latest version is now easily at par with far more expensive modeling and development solutions — and far surpasses them with the number of models, integrations and standards it offers and complies with.
The new Specification Manager allows a user to see the contents of a package as if the package was a document, allowing for object numbering, indentation and filtering. Diagram themes help analysts provide visual clues to differentiate between object types. The discussion feature supports creating context sensitive comments about elements. Version 11 adds to its extensive library of models like UML, BPMN, Archimate, TOGAF, and UPDM with NIEM data models and Kanban project management models. Finally Enterprise Architect 11 now provides cloud enablement for RDBMS repositories and significantly improved collaboration and reporting capabilities.
Enterprise Architect is the world’s most widely adopted model development tool. Version 11 is sure to keep the loyal user base happy and will undoubtedly cause those evaluating comprehensive ALM tools to take a close look at why Enterprise Architect is so popular.
