“No - It is too simplistic to be of any real value. It is useful for consulting firms looking for a "service offering" out of the box or educating those who wish to become EAs. But if you are already a practicing EA then you should already know everything that is in the framework...and much more..” - Enterprise Architect, RTA, Australia, May 2010















How easy it is to use the information in a modelling tool is very important and dependent upon the complexity and volume of the information. Here we compare how easy it is to use the information in the model as its complexity and volume increases.

While complexity and volume is low, the ability to use the information is easier for the Visio based approaches.. The Custom Tool is slightly lower due to the extra complexities of its user interface and the functions available. This is one of the reasons why many Enterprises utilise a Visio based approach. The problem is that very quickly the Visio based approaches become unusable.

Visio/Excel

As the complexity and volume of information increases, the ability to use that information quickly gets worse and worse. Very quickly a point is reached where it is impossible to continue to use the information.

Visio/DB

As with Visio/Excel the ability to use the information reduces to zero quite quickly although the decline is slightly less severe due to the connection with a structured database providing slightly better use.

Custom Tool

As the complexity and volume of information increases, the ability to use the information increases due to more functionality being used such as multi person access and data integration, presentation and dissemination features.
