Collaborating and Sharing

Enterprise Architect is built from the ground up as a collaboration platform and while it is possible to work in isolation, great power of expression will come from collaborating with other people including colleagues, customers, specialists and others. The tool has the power to create relationships between content that is typically disconnected and often kept in silos. The ability to see information from disparate disciplines and view points provides a refreshing and compelling view which is unique to Enterprise Architect and you and your team will see model connections and share ideas that you might not otherwise have been able to visualize.

There is a range of features that facilitate collaborative modeling which can be used in isolation or together, creating unprecedented value to a project or an enterprise as people share knowledge, ideas and provide critical analysis of a model or concept. Regardless of where you are in the world or what language you speak - your colleagues are not far away, and the tool will allow you to collaborate as though working in the same office. These tool include the following:

  • Discussions -  discuss ideas and concepts
  • Chat - conduct informal and immediate chat sessions
  • Mail - in the Model Mail system for detailed conversations and linking to model content
  • Reviews - review model content with any number of people
  • Calendar - keep track of important project dates
  • Library - a catalogue of important project documents and references
