Enterprise Modelling »

FERDY CHRISTANT - NOV 8, 2004 (04:56:55 PM)

In my current role at work I seem to do more and more modelling and less coding. The typical diagrams I produce are class, use case, workflow and state diagrams. Up until now I have used the corporate-given Visio for this.

I both like and dislike Visio. I appreciate its simplicity, yet it is too much of a draw tool, while I need a real modelling tool. By accident I found this tool, Enterprise Architect. I purchased the desktop edition and it does exactly what I want. It is fast, affordable, feature-rich and goodlooking. I'm even considering upgrading to the corporate edition. It is well worth checking out, so go ahead!

PS: I'm not paid to say any of the above.

comment » Pascal,

That's very interesting. Right now I'm using the desktop edition. I've read the corporate edition allows you to access database servers and model the data schemes. Is this true? If so, would you still need a tool like Sybase PowerDesigner? «

comment » Yes, it's true. You can access database servers, and modeling databases, also you can do GUI :) «
