Enterprise Architect includes a powerful new database engineering toolset. The new Database Builder greatly enhances Enterprise Architect's existing data modeling capabilities – making it easier than ever to model, generate and synchronize database designs.

In this webinar you will learn how to:

  • Model a database from scratch using predefined patterns
  • Connect to live databases, run queries and compare differences
  • Synchronize your live database schema based on model changes

European Enterprise Architect User Group 2015 in Zürich, March, 10th 2015

After a series of highly successful German Enterprise Architect User Community events in previous years, it is my great pleasure now to be able to announce a first time event in Zurich. Thanks to the support of UBS AG, the European Enterprise Architect User Group event will be held in Switzrland at the company's headquarters in Zurich. The event will include a series of lectures and a permanently-staffed Experts Corner, and during coffee breaks and lunch there will be plenty of time for more in-depth conversations with users and lecturers alike.

The lectures will be held alternately in English or German. In his keynote speech, David Würth, Enterprise Architect Specialist at UBS, explores the standardization activities and use of Enterprise Architect, and shares some of his enterprise-wide initiatives. Phil Chudley, TOGAF and BPMN specialist since their very beginnings, will illuminate us on the topic "Enterprise Architecture" and associated technologies...and of course you won’t want to miss presentations by Swisscom and the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB).

Save the date: Tuesday, March 10th, 2015, from 9.00 till 17.00 at UBS AG in Zurich

Sparx Systems showcased by OMNILINK at Locate15

OMNILINK will attend Locate15 the premier Australian and New Zealand geospatial industry event in Brisbane from March 10-12 2015. OMNILINK, an organisation well known to the geospatial community across Australia and New Zealand will be promoting the integration of good modelling and planning methods and toolsets as a critical practice to maintain market presence, while leading the technology race.

Enterprise Architect will be showcased by OMNILINK at Stand 19 and they will demonstrate how the integration of good modelling and planning methods and toolsets are critical to maintaining market presence while leading the technology race.

Visit OMNILINK at Stand 19 and pick up your copy of the Case Study on how Enterprise Architect was used to drive the development of a new generation of OMNILINK spatial product and derive benefits that have become re-useable assets.

For almost a decade Sparx Systems has supported the international geospatial standards development effort and has strong business relationships with ISO/TC 211 and INSPIRE.

The European location Framework (ELF) is defined as an Enterprise Architect project and the ELF data model and the application schemas build upon the INSPIRE specifications.

More recently through the Office of Spatial Policy and in partnership with CSIRO Sparx Systems has been supporting the development of the Foundation Spatial Data Framework (FSDF).

Deployment of Enterprise Architect

Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect is designed for use within large corporate environments. As a scalable modeling platform, Enterprise Architect provides a range of deployment options to accommodate the variety of modern enterprises. This whitepaper discusses the options available for enterprise-wide sharing of model information. Typical organizational structures discussed include a single site, a single site with multiple projects and multiple sites connected via a Cloud service.

With over 100 participants the second Enterprise Architect User Group Event in Germany was a great success. Airbus Group in Ottobrunn (Munich) provided the conference facilities and there was a lot of networking and discussion after the speeches and during the breaks. All registered participants will soon find the presentations at the Enterprise Architect user group site www.eausergroup.com for download.

 

We say thank you to Airbus Group for the great cooperation, to the organizing team for the excellent preparation and to all participants, that they gave us their interest and feedback. We are sure, that model based development and engineering will grow further and Enterprise Architect as a tool for different groups of users will foster its position in the user community.

Creating Charts in Enterprise Architect to Aid Decision Making

Date: September 2014

Mr Scott Hebbard, Communications Manager at Sparx Systems, will show how Charts in Enterprise Architect can help you manage projects, communicate strategy, identify trends, track KPI's and make informed decisions.

In this webinar you will learn how to:

  • Place Charts and Graphs on diagrams, group them to display an interactive project dashboard and include them in generated reports
  • Source data from the model, from specific Packages within the model, or from a custom SQL query that extracts the information from the model
  • Create burn down charts and time series graphs that are automatically updated by Enterprise Architect on a regular basis.

Following the resounding success of last year’s first-ever event for the German Enterprise Architect User Community, it is our sincere pleasure to invite you once again on October 7th, 2014 to Munich. Thanks to the generosity of Airbus, this year’s European Enterprise Architect User Group Event 2014 will be held at Airbus Group Headquarters in Ottobrunn, southeast of Munich, Germany.

Clotilde Marchal, Head of Systems Engineering Steering Group, will start the keynote with insights into the strategic role of model based systems engineering (MBSE) and corporate initiatives in this area at Airbus Group, and will be followed by Carsten Strobel, Research Team Leader for Model-Based Systems & Software Engineering at Airbus Group. He will explain how only model-based development allows a network of associations to be displayed, analyzed and solved within a multidisciplinary environment, as tightly integrated as possible, yet above and beyond disciplines and domains. Infineon Technologies and the Austrian Virtual Vehicle Research Center will concentrate their joint speech on the use of Enterprise Architect in the automotive sector by presenting the main findings of the project VeTeSS. Furthermore, the organizers will also present interesting topics: Ian Mitchell from Ability Engineering will talk about "Models to Shout About" and Phil Chudley from Dunstan Thomas will have a speech on "Blocks, Ports and Their Connections - A Practical Approach to SysML 1.3 Modeling using Enterprise Architect".

These are only some of a wide variety of practical use cases that will be presented on two tracks on October 7th. All presentations will be delivered in two parallel sessions by dedicated Enterprise Architect experts, and during coffee and lunch breaks you’ll have plenty of opportunity to get to know users, speakers and stakeholders eager to share their experiences.

So, register today for the most interesting and informative meeting in the European Enterprise Architect User Community! Get the latest information on the newest trends and developments in the world of Enterprise Architect, learn the best tips and tricks from other users and even get the answer to that question you’ve always wanted to ask!

The User Group Event is organized by the Enterprise Architect User Group EAUG (Dunstan Thomas, Ability Engineering and LieberLieber Software), tickets are available from:

Enterprise Architect integrates Requirements Management with other software development disciplines, by creating requirements directly in the model. Requirements Management is built into the core product, solving many of the issues of traceability, interdisciplinary team divisions, integration with change and configuration management systems.  Read the following whitepaper for more information:

If you are not using Enterprise Architect to design your systems, you are giving up opportunities for increased productivity, that result from re-using your data across the whole project, sharing that data across the entire project team and using the model to drive the solution.

Enterprise Architect delivers the capacity for data sharing and re-use, achieving synergies and efficiencies that can only be realized using an integrated development environment.

You could be reaping the benefits of Enterprise Architect in less than twenty minutes!
