The Sparx Systems Pro Cloud Server offers a powerful gateway for third party tools to integrate with Enterprise Architect models.
Pro Cloud Server allows users to Explore, query, retrieve and update information from Enterprise Architect using powerful OSLC interface. Use the extensive RESTful API to exchange information between your model repository and other systems.
Sparx Systems Pro Cloud Server (PCS) offers a gateway to Enterprise Architect models. This offers a significant advantage in the tooling space. As modern teams evolve to be more agile and robust, there is an increasing need for various tools to seamlessly exchange information. The conventional way to extend the COM API of Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect was perceived as an overhead in integrations with web-based tools such as JIRA, Jama, VSTS, ServiceNow, etc. The Pro Cloud Server RESTful API is a perfect answer to this problem.
Sparx Systems strengths lies in its strong partner ecosystem, which works closely with clients across the globe offering training, consulting services, and also develops niche products that solve critical business needs. The Pro Cloud Server API now opens up the channel for such partners to leverage this API to develop web based applications that extends Enterprise Architect capabilities or develop web based integrations to other tools.
