Sparx Systems has been recognized for it's leadership in providing quality technology in support of Service Oriented Architecture Technology related modeling.
CIOReview recently published a list of the "...20 most promising SOA Solution Providers, listing the best vendors and consultants who provide key technology solutions and services related to SOA." CIOReview is a technology magazine that talks about the enterprise solutions that can define the business goals of enterprises of tomorrow.
Enterprise Architect implements the OMG’s Service oriented architecture Modeling Language (SoaML), which provides a standards-based approach to modeling SOA solutions using the UML.
As a natural complement to SoaML, Enterprise Architect also supports the Service Oriented Modeling Framework (SOMF), which encourages a holistic view of enterprise software entities via a technology-independent notation. The SOMF modeling notation provides an intuitive approach to visualize “used-to-be”, “as-is” and “to-be” states of the enterprise service portfolio.

Factoring has been around for hundreds, if not thousands of years and today the global worth of the factoring business is estimated to be over €2.25 trillion.
Partho Chakraborty and Arvind Sonmale, recently published a book called “Factoring - A Powerful Tool in the World of Finance”. In this publication Enterprise Architect was used to create the Business Process models using BPMN 2.0.
Factoring as means of finance is very ancient and there has been much written on the topic. What we currently see on Factoring can be considered the classical form.
Today the customer is very discerning and wants more and the aim of this book is to go beyond classical factoring.
This book is in 3 parts and introduces new topics and techniques, with a lot of examples and some live cases. It contains many graphical examples, some of which are unique as it gives information on and traces our history on this ancient monetary system while providing a view of factoring and it’s value in a modern context.
Published by Notion Press, the book is available through Amazon.

Since 2008 Sparx Systems has been supporting international communities to improve how spatial data is held by public authorities to support environmental policy.
Enterprise Architect has been used to improve the harmonization of spatial data and facilitate the interoperability of spatial services, ensuring greater sharing of the data between public authorities and on-line access by the public.
INSPIRE was founded on the basis of five issues that were identified as presenting obstacles to this objective: missing or incomplete spatial data, incomplete descriptions of spatial data, difficulty to combine different spatial data sets, inaccessibility of spatial data and various barriers to data sharing.
Issue No 52 of the EC European Forum for Science and Industry newsletter, published in May 2015, highlights the success of the INSPIRE JRC and Sparx Systems relationship involving “ technical leadership in creating this spatial data infrastructure, coordinating the work of hundreds of experts from the public and private sectors in Europe to develop the common standards for spatial data for environmental related policy making.”
Sparx Systems CEO & Founder, Geoffrey Sparks is featured on the Cover of the March Edition of the CIO Review. Learn more about Sparx Systems and how to master enterprise processes using Enterprise Architect.
