Streamlined deployments for medium to large organizations

Enterprise Architect SaaS is the perfect cloud based corporate enterprise team modeling delivery solution for the industry leading Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect modeling tool. Enterprise Architect supports a range of modeling frameworks and is the tool of choice for over one million users across the world.

Enterprise Architect SaaS deployment allows medium to large teams to quickly start and scale their modeling efforts without any internal operational overheads.

Traditionally, Enterprise Architect is deployed on site to end users’ machines and connects to a remote database. This can incur quite extreme deployment time, efforts and costs for larger organizations in terms of internal provision of infrastructure, setup and maintain software and databases.

With more teams moving to a 'Cloud First' strategy, the 'On Premises' setup is becoming a thing of the past. Enterprise Architect SaaS allows users to get on-boarded and start working almost immediately.

What is required to get started with the Cloud Platform

To enable collaborative modeling using Enterprise Architect over a central repository and distributed modeling, teams have to choose a suitable edition of the 'Enterprise Architect SaaS' and an appropriate 'EA Infrastructure'.

The Enterprise Architect SaaS is the service that renders the Sparx Enterprise Architect Application on a web browser, and the EA Infrastructure is the central repository along with all other infra setup such as Floating license manager, remote https access, etc.
