Prolaborate 3.0 available

Prolaborate SparxSystems 3 Enterprise Architect Web

Sparx Systems has released Prolaborate 3, the latest version of its web solution for Enterprise Architect modelling tool.

Main improvements:

  • Increased performances.
  • New widget to include Impact Analysis views in the dashboards.
  • New CxO multi-level charts to represent complex data in an impressive and easily understandable way.

The EAExample sample project pre-installed with Enterprise Architect has been used in this article to illustrate some of Prolaborate 3 features.

Model visibility and access

Prolaborate makes it possible to pick and select the models that are relevant for a user profile, e.g. a business stakeholder could request visibility and access only on the BPMN diagrams matching the enterprise business processes.

In the screenshot below, a user has a read/write access to the SysML model from the EAExample project. The full project content is illustrated on the left (Enterprise Architect Project Browser).

The above customization has been entered via Prolaborate administration screen:

prolaborate repository browser sysml access permissions administration

Model navigation and access

Prolaborate supports multiple Enterprise Architect projects (restrictions may apply based on the owned license) as set up in Sparx Systems Pro Cloud Server. The user below can either access both Sparx EAExample and an Archimate project.

The above main screen is a Dashboard with convenient links to the main SysML diagrams for the Portable Audio Player system. Clicking on the Design BDD opens the diagram below. Once displayed, the user can select an element (e.g. the main block) to open its properties (real-time details from the EA database). Text based information such as the element's notes can be updated directly with Prolaborate (note: Enterprise Architect tool is required for advanced modelling uses including updating diagrams).

Once the notes description has been saved, the update is straight away visible within Enterprise Architect:

Amongst the other properties tabs, EA matching traceability functions are available: find the element's usage within diagrams and the linked elements.

Collaboration modelling platform: discussions, model review

Prolaborate provides most features that users can expect from a collaboration tool. As regards it supports discussions on selected elements and diagrams, model review processes, etc.

As illustrated hereafter, a user submits a query to the system engineer in charge of the system design:

prolaborate discussion web sparxsystems enterprise architect

The target user is notified and submits a reply online, having dealt with the request within the given context.

A link to any model element or diagram can easily be created and copied into an e-mail or document.

Charts and reports

A model based approach involves gathering all the project related information and knowledge within a single location, the model repository. An Enterprise Architect modelling project is a true database with a structured content that can be analyzed and used in EA:

  • Advanced model search.
  • Custom add-in to run model validation as defined by the team (contact me for any query).
  • Charts.

Prolaborate expands the access to this content beyond the EA users group via custom charts and reports.

Charts and sub reports

Prolaborate supports most chart types: pie, donut, bar, stacked bar, bubble, heat map, and nested pie.

prolaborate graphiques types web sparxsystems enterprise architect

A report can be enabled as an option for the chart selected values.

A Nested Pie chart has been defined for the SysML model:

  • To review the number of SysML blocks, parts and ports, organized by stereotype.
  • To display a list of results for the selected value e.g. all Flow Property stereotyped parts.

For Enterprise Architect projects, the Heat Map is useful to review the identified applications.

Reports

As an alternative to charts, a table can be produced according to the definition of a custom query. Sub reports are also available as an option to access details for a selected line within the main table.

Publishing model information via tables can be useful for common data models or glossaries maintained via UML models.

In the following example, the Portable Audio Player SysML parts are listed (name + type). Selecting a part opens its properties (name, notes, diagram usage, traceability...).

The "View" link in the last column can be clicked to open the part's details i.e. its ports and parts.

A lot of customers at our seminars and workshops on BPMN, enterprise architecture, business analysis and requirements gathering, have 1 thing in common: their company uses the Enterprise Architect® version 12 , 13 or 14 tool from SparxSystems®. They use it mainly for implementing and testing software, and only occasionally for analysing and modelling business processes and requirements.

Enterprise Architect from SparxSystems offers you a complete environment that supports you in every phase of a project, from requirements gathering to the implementation and testing of software. Hence, Enterprise Architect offers something for every role in a project and the interaction between them, but also allows the streamlining, consistency and communication of deliverables, which can be improved in many companies.

During this workshop, we want to focus on the lesser known applications of Enterprise Architect, such as enterprise architecture modelling (with ArchiMate), requirements analysis and documentation, as well as business analysis, process modelling, simulation of business processes, software project management, data modelling, etc. The use of this tool for software implementation is very well known, so this will get less attention.

Your course leader and moderator is Christian Gijsels of GIJSELSDOTCOM. He has a lot of experience in business analysis, requirements management and modelling business processes with Enterprise Architect, and he uses this and other tools almost every day. Hence, you get a very practical and pragmatic view during this intensive, interactive and inspiring workshop, which is also available in-company.

Sparx Systems has been identified as an exemplar model regarding the firm's approach to Agile in an article published in the August issue of BA LENS online magazine.

BALens HeaderLogoThe feature highlighted that in order to fully understand Agile, an organisation needs to embed the principles of Agile into it's DNA.

"Sparx Systems has built the agile mindset into the organization’s culture and to the delivery of the recognized products they provide to their global network of users."

In partnership with the International Institute of Business Analysis, Sparx Systems released the Tools & Techniques for BABOK Guide v3, a digital reference for IIBA's Business Analysis Body Of Knowledge. Tools & Techniques for BABOK Guide v3 can be accessed freely via the new Pro Cloud Server, viewed on any mobile device browser.

babok dudeWith the recent inclusion of OSLC RESTful API within Sparx Systems products, and increasing number of web-based integrations will be available to users of Enterprise Architect, Web EA and Pro Cloud Server in the near future. The Beta release of Enterprise Architect 14, slated for late 2017, will prove to be another quality product as a result of Agile methodologies and best practices.

Sparx Systems has once again made it to the 2017 SD Times 100 list in the ALM & Development Tools Category.  SD times indicated that "Application life-cycle management needs sound methods coupled with up-to-date tools and platforms for requirements so that teams know what to do and when to do it by. These companies helped developers stick to the plan and avoid falling behind in 2017."  Enterprise Architect provides a solid platform for the delivery and support of new applications, services, and technologies, by encouraging and facilitation of increased productivity between development (Dev) and IT operations (Ops). Sparx Systems is pleased to be on the 2017 SD Times 100.
