Complete Modeling Platform for

Business Analysis

Enterprise Architect is the perfect solution for any Business Analyst to take a holistic approach to identify,
understand, define and solve business needs.

Using Enterprise Architect, Business Analysts can plan, manage, model, test, design and construct any system, business process or architecture with the versatility of customized toolboxes and diagrams that suit business needs.

Business Analysts benefit from working collaboratively to visualize and clarify information, aiding decision making and improving requirements management and analysis.

Enterprise Architect helps individuals, groups and large organizations model and manage complex information. Offering an extensive range of collaborative features, Enterprise Architect allows you to keep stakeholders informed.

Analyze Business Processes

Document existing business practices , As-Is and To-Be business processes, simulate and execute process flows. Industry-standard process modeling tools including BPMN and flow charts allow you to review and perform gap analysis for future business needs. Configure simulations with BPSim. Exchange model information via BPMN XML Import/Export.

Heat Maps & Use Case

Analyze Heat Maps to Facilitate Decision Making

Enterprise Architect's Heat Maps analyze the enterprise-wide data influencing strategic planning and project level decision making. Use simple visual cues, such as color and relative size, to convey information that can facilitate decision making, identify risk and improve analysis on model elements.
Use Case Analysis

Develop Use Cases to model system behavior and analyze how users interact with a system to achieve real world goals. Use alternative images for model elements to create realistic, yet easy to understand system models.

Strategic Modeling

Use Enterprise Architect to identify and establish meaningful strategic links between corporate strategy, operations, business rules and business process improvements. Leverage strategic planning tools such as a Balanced Scorecard, Decision Trees, Value Chains, Strategy Maps and Organizational Charts.


Roadmap diagrams help you to map existing elements against a Timeline. This is useful for visualizing how a system changes over time, planning a migration of responsibility between two teams, documenting the concurrent support for multiple platforms or representing just about any time based data. To ensure the modeler and viewer always have appropriate context, the Timeline is always displayed on screen, on any saved images and when printed.

Changes of phase or state of each element can be represented in Roadmap diagrams using a dedicated notation of a bar divided into colored segments representing each state. The states available, the order they appear in and the colors used are controlled by a Diagram Legend. Each element displayed then shows the length of each segment (and hence duration of each state), and also provides the ability to hide individual segments on that element.

Communicate with Stakeholders and Teams

Share a project vision, discuss ideas, compare designs and produce custom reports that are easily understood by IT and business professionals alike. Automatically produce documentation that can be used to highlight the ‘value’ of proposed system changes, business process improvements and strategic goals to create a compelling business case.

Collaborative tools such as Model Mail, Gantt Charts, Element Discussions, Gap Analysis and Team Review can be used to manage a project, co-ordinate resources and engage stakeholders in the development process.

You can source Chart data from within the model and from any number of external models concurrently, providing a consolidated Dashboard of the activity from multiple models at once, turning Enterprise Architect into the ultimate enterprise project reporting center.

Screen Prototyping

Screen Prototyping
Create rich and engaging screen prototypes for the web, mobile devices and traditional Win32 user interfaces. Link wireframes to Requirements, Use Cases, Structured Scenarios and supplementary design documentation.

Elicit feedback, verify design elements, engage key stakeholders and document evaluation within a team to enhance requirement management. Establish a relationship between user interface elements and system behavior.

Build and Manage Requirements

The new Collaborations window collects together the running history and moment to moment changes of the four central aspects of model based collaboration.
  • Create and view requirements directly in an Enterprise Architect model
  • Build a coherent picture of a proposed system
  • Identify and document relationships in a tabular format and via model/diagram
  • Record essential element information such as status, difficulty and priority
  • Document and trace requirements throughout the life of a project
  • Verify strategic decisions and trace organizational objectives
  • Capture business logic using business rules and business process models

Simulation and Testing

Simulation Machine Process Simulation

Enterprise Architect’s Model Simulation helps verify system behavior and manage complexity. Visualize outcomes before resources are committed. Gain a better understanding of how your systems work.

Enterprise Architect supports BPSim, a specification for parameterization and exchange of process analysis data, allowing the creation, comparison and reuse of different simulation configurations stored within the model.
Testing Windows Testing

Enterprise Architect enables you to define test specifications, execute tests and record results directly from model elements.

Using Enterprise Architect’s structured scenarios you can automatically generate test case descriptions. Enterprise Architect is the complete platform for any Test Manager.
