In this session we will take a sneak preview into the up and coming release of Enterprise Architect. There has been a lot of changes both in Enterprise Architect and within Sparx Systems this year, I will take the time to introduce some of the new tools and capabilities introduced into Enterprise Architect in that time as well as talk about other initiatives that Sparx Systems has undertaken in recent times.
In the talk, we discuss the central value of modeling – creating and communicating knowledge.
We are modeling not just for fun, but rather due to the value generated by modeling. When we better understand the mechanisms of modeling-value, we can focus on things that matter.
How to import Model elements and connectors from Excels and Word documents to harvest model contents.
Personalise, Declutter and Focus within Enterprise Architect: a tutorial style workshop teaching tips and tricks to streamline the Enterprise Architect user interface to enhance ergonomics and increase productivity and efficiency.
The Next-Gen Prolaborate is here! Get an exclusive first look at the all-new and amazing Prolaborate 4.0
Digital Engineering is the key element of an emerging paradigm: “Rather than just building better systems, it builds systems better”. Architects need to embrace this disruptive agility in order to remain competitive in an ever-innovating global business environment. Digital engineering is a fundamental part of the US government’s architecture and modern systems development methodology. Giu will be sharing his experience working with one of the leading government research organizations over the past year to demonstrate the role architecture can play in making digital engineering successful.
Aspect-oriented software development brings us many benefits, allowing us to build more understandable, reusable, flexible, extensible systems, reducing development costs and complexity, and EA can give us full support for this paradigm.
The need to go agile is obvious – but how can this work using models? We will take a closer look at how Sparx EA teams can achieve the best of both worlds, granular versioning using Lemon Tree and enterprise collaboration and stakeholder reviews using Prolaborate.
Executable models are the foundation of agile systems engineering. They provide a means for systems engineers to minimize the ambiguity prevalent in text-based specifications, along with the verification necessary to ensure specifications are complete, consistent, and correct.
This Case Study will examine some of the new features in Enterprise Architect 16 that have allowed Sparx Systems to work from home successfully and collaborate on every aspect of software and system development.
We usually create and use many Packages in the Browser Window, but efficiency depends on how to build the structure. I would like to share basic information about the Browser and some key ideas to build the structure.
- useful features in the Browser
- Views and Packages
- change order
- some elements are not shown, why?
- build structure for the first EA users
Using Workspaces, Customizing Ribbon Sets, Selecting Perspectives, MDG Selection and the most important windows for better modelling
In this presentation we present a method by using Enterprise Enterprise Architect in the process of retrofitting Industrial Systems. Nowadays a large amount of projects are related to upgrade, replace of terminate industrial Systems. For these project we use a method called “Middle Out Analysis” based on a “Top-Down-“ and “Bottom-Up Analysis” to find gaps between existing documentation and the existing implimentation of the System.
“Getting traceability” is the most popular EA requirement. But it’s not as simple as just connecting two things together on a diagram. This session will explore some of the different ways that EA lets us create and view traceability information, and also how our decisions on HOW we do that will hugely affect the value of our models.
A real-world case study on how to leverage Sparx in the various SAFe agile architecture roles, thereby balancing intentional architecture with emergent design
Assuming you have a basic MDG, we can up the ante and add some extra features to the MDG to really make it sing.
In this session I will cover
- Speeding up the process of Generating the MDG using a script (which I will make available for attendees can download)
- Deploying an MDG via Import to Model
- The basics of shapescripts and common reasons as to why you might want to use a Shapescript in an MDG
- Creating and including Patterns in an MDG
- How to create a Model Wizard and incorporate the Wizard into the MDG
- Including other artefacts such as Documentation Templates, Model Searches and Scripts
Implementation of cae tools in companys sometimes fails. Why!? The answer is: less is more but do it wise!
Evaluation Logical Data Models with non ICT stakeholders can be challenging. Are they aware of the impact of the special modelling concepts like specialisations, enumerations and associations with cardinalities. In this session I will demonstrate a tool in the IDEA AddOn that transforms logical data models to an explorer like screen in which you can evaluate the logical model in a more intuitive format and navigation. This can be combined with a pattern catalogue to quickly introduce standard building blocks in the logical data model for evaluation
I invite you to watch over my shoulder and to learn effective best practices to deliver your next transformation project. Discover how to migrate legacy applications to rehost on AWS or Microsoft Azure DevSecOps, Office 365, and NIST Cyber Security requirements. I’ll share a practical approach to leverage architecture development methods to deliver the architecture vision, business, application, data, and technology using stakeholder analysis, gap analysis, roadmaps, application dashboards to assist stakeholders to make tolerate, invest, eliminate, and migrate decisions that make your practice successful.
Sparx EA SaaS – The past, present and future of EA Platform Deployment
Everyone’s familiar with introductory “Hello World” programs as a way to help you learn a new programming language. CodeBot generates and deploys web applications from UML models with virtually no programming (literally speaking, the model is the code). So what does “Hello World” look like when the code is a UML model?
This session is for complete beginners. We will quickly build a small SysML model of a Doorbell System.
A Powerful Administrator’s Recipe Book of set-based functions used to perform common repository administration tasks.
Using the Dependency Structure Matrix or Design Structure Matrix methodology supported by Lattix Architect in combination with Sparx EA makes it easy to validate intended vs. realised architecture. In this webinar Han demonstrates a way of working to better align architecture with implementation.
In this session Bert and Yorrick will discuss the approach of the Dutch Railways for architectural modelling of a complex Azure landscape. We show examples of our ArchiMate viewpoints and views, demonstrate how we configured Sparx Enterprise Architect and indicate what our “lessons learned” are. With this we think we can give you an insight into the opportunities and challenges of the combination ArchiMate, Azure for Data and Analytics, Sparx Enterprise Architect and secure infrastructure.

Looking out to integrate Enterprise Architect seamlessly with the tools your teams use daily? Let’s take a detailed look at the integrations Prolaborate and Pro Cloud Server have to offer
Regulations such as IFRS17, Solvency II, BASEL III, BCBS 239 to name a few are just the beginning. In this presentation we show how to use Sparx to manage complexity and making the result useful for the business
A strong arm of EA support services around the globe makes deployment, rolling out, training , standardization and course correction easier than never before. Two case studies to be discussed where a small effort from EA expert set the course right for a wide architectural practice.
Today, enterprise architecture is usually organized following empiric approximations that are inherited from the nineties and that are unfortunately leading to recurrent failures. Labnaf features, instead, a precise and intuitive framework organization that is based on systems semantics, and that is used by Prolaborate to provide enterprise analytics and visualization at large scale.
I will present how we work with UML and MDA in our Harmonized UML Model, and how the models are implemented in tools for geospatial information.
As with many organizations, PayPal is looking to simplify the core applications that run their business and integrate acquired companies into those core applications. Those applications are grouped into different, internal platforms that represent shared services that are used by their commercial products delivered via their website, mobile applications, and merchant APIs. Executive management required a business-oriented lens to understand the current state, inform planning and funding, and track progress towards the target architecture. The Enterprise Architecture practices at PayPal responded by working with executive stakeholders and platform teams to synthesize a capability-based view of their common and foundational platforms to support this enterprise-wide transformation effort. This presentation will review the approach the EA team employed, initial outcomes, and continuing plans.
