Documenting is a good practice. But more than a good practice is a mandatory requirement for most clients and for your business. IBM Rational System Architect is the remarkable heir of IBM modeling software for enterprises architectures. Our business needs IBM SA to build UML artifacts like sequence diagram and data model diagram. Sometimes we use it to document our projects for our clients. Sometimes we use it for ourselves.
- MS Office exporting
- UML modeling
- Transformation to code
- A reverse transformation from code
- Integrates with other IBM products
- Always has a price. And IBM is not cheap
- Sequence diagrams can get messy (still has a good UI)
- Only support few databases as backend repositories like SQL Server and Oracle

If you need a whole infrastructure and architect view, IBM Rational System Architect is the way to go. If you need a single diagram or your business process is young enough to support hard documenting, you are fine with an open source tool.
