Overall Satisfaction with Lucidchart

It is fairly easy to use, however there are some places that it would be nice for more information.
I primarily use Lucidchart to create network and data flow diagrams. One of the things that makes it handy is the utilization of specific service instances. For example, you can pick a public cloud provider used in your environment, with diagram icons that match the virtual infrastructure. This makes for a cleaner, more professional looking diagram / flow chart.
  • Specific technology stack
  • Broad use templates
  • Extensibility over business and technology use cases
  • 3rd party icon integration
  • template extensibility i.e. Azure and AWS and GCP etc
  • extensible mapping service feature for existing infrastructure
  • Time saving - Improved Documentation
  • Time saving - Clarity during projects
  • Time saving - Ease of use
As noted in the earlier section, the extensibility with specific technology stacks makes it very useful. I have not investigated other common technology stack templates native to the app. Such as micro-services, however, as these technology stacks become more common, Lucidchart would benefit well from creating and or ingesting those standard templates / icons.
I've not had to use it, however, I receive emails on how it is going since using it.

As stated earlier. Viso lacks the SaaS component, making it more difficult to use on non-windows devices. They may have since changed this, but that was one of the biggest factors from moving. Also the output format isn't viewable unless its specified as a .jpeg or other picture output. Meaning sharing the file with non windows users makes it difficult. This is especially true for legacy files that may need updating.
I can't think of any scenarios where Lucidchart is not well suited. It does a great job in the technology sector over a broad range of tasks. It is great at org charts, technical documentation and process flows. I have used it for all of these things. It is also nice that it is SaaS hosted vs local install apps like Viso which are not natively compatible with Linux devices. Web apps allow for it to be used across all operating systems.
