Enterprise Architect

A precise and intuitive modeling and design platform for the times that integrates exploration and invention.

Comprehensive UML analysis and design tool, covering software development from requirements gathering to the analysis stages, design models, testing and maintenance including documentation output.


Enterprise Architect is a visual platform for designing and constructing software systems, for business process modeling and for more generalised modeling purposes. Enterprise Architect is based on the latest UML 2.5 specification. UML defines a visual language that is used to model a particular domain or system (either proposed or existing). Enterprise Architect is a progressive tool that covers all aspects of the development cycle, providing full traceability from the initial design phase through to deployment, maintenance, testing and change control.

Visual Flexibility

Custom drawing styles let you choose how to represent design elements with custom shapes, transparencies, colors and images. Unleash your creativity and build the visual representations your customers are familiar with.


Take advantage of model based add-ins to enforce new work flows, governance and control within your mission critical models. Leverage the security group based restrictions on Perspectives (technologies) and Ribbon sets to ensure your modelers see only the tools and technologies relevant to them.

User interface and technology sets based on security group

The Perspectives capability has been streamlined and linked into Enterprise Architect's security and governance to provide a richer and more useful modeling experience for both small teams and large enterprises.

New Tools

DMN (Decision Modeling Notation) . Data Miner. Diagram Matrix view. Diagram construct view. Custom tables. Custom diagram styles. Custom reports. Feature matrix. Project Browser favorites. New Element Browser. New Portals. New Diagram Browser. Hundreds of UI tweaks. New icons sets, new technologies, new ways of working.


Hundreds of UI changes to ensure a rich and user friendly experience that promotes rapid development, strong understanding of models, trace-ability, focus and accuracy. New Project browser tools to let you quickly focus in on your interests and cut out the noise.

Extended Project Browser

The Project Browser has been renamed as simply the "Browser" and now incorporates four different view types of your model:
- The standard complete model hierarchy
- The Context only hierarchy introduced in version 14
- The new Diagram Browser
- The new Element Browser

New Technologies

New technologies to model Real Time and Embedded Systems

Dynamic Decision Modeling and Simulation

Implement automation methods and other functionality to tightly couple DMN and BPSim with model elements and custom data sets. Allow configuration and execution of BPSim and DMN from the automation interface. Allow binding data set rows to EA element properties. The final result will be a high level method for supporting complex enterprise architecture and system decisions from modeled data.

New Icon Rendering Engine

Display of icons at high DPI settings are now vastly improved

Bookmark Values

Enterprise Architect 15 now allows you to set a Bookmark Value on an element in a diagram - this allows users to tag elem
