Real-time and embedded development

Build robust and maintainable systems
Enterprise Architect is a multi-user, graphical tool designed to help your teams build robust and maintainable systems. And using high quality, built-in reporting and documentation, you can deliver a truly shared vision easily and accurately!

High performance

Load extremely large models in seconds
Fast! Enterprise Architect users agree – Enterprise Architect is a spectacularly fast performer, loading extremely large models in seconds. Featuring a high-performance model repository, Enterprise Architect easily accommodates large teams sharing the same view of the enterprise.

Collaborate effectively globally
With tightly integrated version control capabilities, and deployable cloud-based servers, Enterprise Architect also allows globally distributed teams to collaborate effectively on shared projects.


Bring your models to life
Bring your models to life using dynamic model simulation. Verify the correctness of your behavioral models and gain a better understanding of how a business system works. Use triggers such as pressing a button, flicking a switch or receiving a message to control the execution of your simulations. Enterprise Architect can also control the flow of your simulation using Guards and Effects written in JavaScript.

Take control of your simulations
Guards determine which path will be taken next based on criteria such as when a valid password is entered. Take control of your simulations by using Effects to manipulate variables and perform calculations at specific times during a simulation. Experiment with different choices and make changes to your simulation in a risk averse environment. By controlling the speed of a simulation, you can slow a system down to observe previously unseen steps.


Complete traceability
Enterprise Architect provides complete traceability from requirements, analysis and design models, through to implementation and deployment. Effective verification, validation and immediate impact analysis are possible across the entire life cycle, using such capabilities as Enterprise Architect’s Relationship Matrix and Hierarchy View.

Equipped with the right information
Combined with built-in task and resource allocation, Project managers and QA teams are equipped with the right information to help deliver projects successfully.

Model, manage and trace

Trace proposed changes
Capture and trace formal requirements to design, build, deployment and beyond. Use impact analysis to trace proposed changes to original requirements. Build the right system.

Enterprise Architect’s built-in requirements management features can be used to:

Define an organized, hierarchical requirements model
Trace the implementation of system requirements to model elements
Search and report on requirements
Perform impact analysis of proposed changes to requirements

Manage complex information

Model and manage complex information
Enterprise Architect helps individuals, groups and large organizations model and manage complex information. By integrating and connecting a wide range of structural and behavioral information in visual form, you can build a coherent, verifiable model of what-is or what-will-be.

Tools built into Enterprise Architect that help you manage complexity include:

Diagrams for modeling strategic and business level concepts
Domain-specific profiles and reusable model patterns
Baseline and version management for tracking and integrating changes
Role-based security to help the right people contribute in the right way


One click HTML and document generation
Enterprise Architect provides powerful document generation and reporting tools with a full WYSIWYG template editor. Generate detailed reports with the information you need in the format your company or client demands!

At the click of a button automatically produce HTML versions of your model for easy distribution over the Internet or your organization’s intranet.

Source code roundtrip

From model to source code
The built-in source code editor lets you quickly navigate from model directly to source code in the same environment. Code generation templates let you customize generated source code according to your company specifications.

Enterprise Architect supports generation and reverse engineering of source code for many popular languages, including:

C and C++
System C
Visual Basic
and more…

Application visualization

Reverse engineer code and databases
Enterprise Architect helps you visualize your applications by supporting reverse engineering of a wide range of software development languages and database repository schema.

Maximize re-use
Bring in complete frameworks and legacy systems from source code, jar files or even .Net binary assemblies! By importing frameworks and library code, you can maximize re-use and understanding of your existing investment.

Model driven architecture

Transforms and templates
Enterprise Architect supports advanced Model Driven Architecture (MDA) transformations using easy to edit transform templates.

Platform independent to platform specific
You can quickly develop detailed solutions from abstract models. A single platform independent model (PIM) can drive generation of multiple platform-specific target solutions – providing a significant productivity boost!

With built-in transformations for:


Debugging and visualization

Build, test and run
Enterprise Architect enables you to build, test, debug, run and execute deployment scripts, all from within the Enterprise Architect development environment. With the ability to generate NUnit and JUnit test classes from source classes using MDA Transformations and integrate the test process directly into the Enterprise Architect IDE, you can now integrate UML and modeling into the build/test/execute/deploy process.

Walk through executing code
In addition to build/test and execute functionality, Enterprise Architect includes debugging capabilities for Java, .NET and Microsoft Native (C++, C and VB). The debuggers built into Enterprise Architect are specifically designed to enable a developer or tester to capture stack trace information as they ‘walk through’ the executing code, performing runtime inspection of suspended threads.

Code execution to visual diagrams
They can then use the final stack trace history to generate Sequence diagrams within Enterprise Architect, converting the actual code execution and calls into visual diagrams.


Access the internals of models
The Automation Interface lets you access the internals of Enterprise Architect models. Any development environment capable of generating ActiveX Com clients can be used to connect to Enterprise Architect’s Automation Interface.

Some examples of tasks you could perform via the Automation Interface:

Automatically generate and publish a daily HTML report to your local intranet
Script repetitive tasks, such as property update common to all model elements
Generate code from a state machine or diagram
Produce custom reports
Execute ad hoc queries against the model

Database modeling

Database tools and profiles
Enterprise Architect’s built-in Data Modeling tools and profiles extend UML to provide an intuitive mapping from the database concepts of tables and relationships onto the UML concepts of classes and associations. These extensions also enable you to model database keys, triggers, constraints, RI and other relational database features.

Automatic generation of DDL
Enterprise Architect supports modeling of database schema and automatic generation of DDL scripts for eleven DBMS targets out-of-the-box:

MS Access
MS SQL Server

Systems engineering and simulation

Integrating many high-end features for Systems Engineers, the Ultimate and Unified editions of Enterprise Architect provide built-in support for:

SysML 1.1, 1.2, 1.3
Parametric model simulation
Executable code generation
Model to code transformations for Hardware Description Languages and ADA 2005

Business process modeling

There are many approaches to Business Process Modeling (BPM) using UML as the base modeling language.

In particular, Activity diagrams, Object Diagrams and custom Profiles provide powerful modeling approaches for Business Analysts.

Enterprise Architect complements UML 2.5 with BPMN support and extension elements for analysis, requirements management and process management (such as change, feature and issue elements).

Enterprise Architect’s Business Process Modeling capabilities let you:

Visualize business process with a UML profile for BPMN
Generate executable BPEL scripts from BPMN models
Validate the correctness of BPMN models

Extend UML 2.5

Enterprise Architect’s foundations are built upon the UML 2 specification – but it doesn’t stop there!

Use UML Profiles to extend the modeling domain, while Model Validation ensures integrity.

Combine Business Processes, Information and Work Flows in the one model using our free extensions for BPMN and the Eriksson-Penker profile.
