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 and Enterprise Architect

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.

Enterprise Architect 12 is a major milestone release of Sparx Systems' award-winning modeling platform. Significant user interface enhancements make it easier to navigate the model, access element properties and create a personalized look and feel. Hundreds of updates and new tools make your modeling more productive than ever!

 

Scott Hebbard and Ben Constable review some release highlights:

 

  • New tools for wireframing, database engineering and XML schema development
  • Enhanced Testing, Project Management and superior Model Merge
  • Major UI updates and faster navigation with Portals


To suit users in different time zones, we will hold two sessions – each 60 minutes in duration.
