Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect

You need to have a Sparx EA go to person to help socialize the tool and ensure it is properly used (but again, this is true for most tools). IF a company is looking for a tool they can just buy an have people use they should stick to Visio because any true modeling tool requires expertise.

In an environment where you do not have a highly trained group of architects who are familiar with all the standards and strategies of modeling, Sparx EA , more than most tools, allows you to wrap user friendly menus,and windows around it to make it easier to use.

Alternatives Considered

Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect

Price: Sparx blows away the competition being less expensive by orders of magnitude Features: It compares favorably with the competition w.r.t. modeling architecture. It's not an APM, risk management or any other kind of tool. Support: It provides excellent e-mail technical support but not any kind of consulting or professional services. Of course, there are a plethora of companies that will happily step in to fill this slot but be prepared to pay. My advice - hire a very skilled independent consultant.
