Pros
"It is easy to use and easy to learn. It is also fully compatible with BPMN virtual tool. Bizagi is very fast in responding to and fixing the issues.""The solution offers a free version of their product.""The interface, design, and accessible user manuals to help get started using the solution are valuable features in Bizagi.""In Bizagi, all of the features are valuable.""Very user friendly and a professional solution.""Bizagi is really great for beginners because it's user-friendly and you can learn in it quickly, whereas other similar software are harder.""Its cost is the most valuable. It is not as expensive. It is also easy to make different types of processes for the users.""The amount of control that this solution provides is great."

"When you look at it, No Magic is an all-encompassing tool. You can use it for business architecture design. You can use it for deploying an ERP system across your enterprise. However, it was initially designed and developed for model-based systems engineering. That's the systems engineering required to either produce an IP system or product. It takes away the mounds of paper and puts it into a model. It enables you to generate significant savings by modeling that new product or that system before you ever start developing a prototype.""The most valuable features are the visibility, standard compliance, and interface.""The technical support is very good.""I would rate MagicDraw a nine out of ten because of the price. Enterprise Architect has a lot of bugs and MagicDraw is a lot more accurate and flexible. It's a level better.""The most valuable feature is the amount of flexibility that one has to model, which is great for an individual.""The beauty of MagicDraw is that it has a simulation part, so you can simulate your model to validate it. The simulation allows you to bring in code off of an external code that you can write to set up the simulation and execute the code.""The MBFC capability of MagicDraw is higher than the other competitors.""I think one of the key things is the plugins for integration with requirements management tools like Doors"

Cons
"In terms of what needs improvement, the costs can be lowered.""When you start working with information modeling, et cetera, here is no really good solution for the data modeling and information modeling.""Its price can be improved. The price is high for the application as well as for maintaining and developing applications. When you develop, for example, a BPM, you need to pay a lot for Bizagi.""Its performance needs to be improved. The main thing is that it is limited, especially in terms of the response times. When the processes become a bit large, it is very awkward to work with the Bizagi modeler. When you have already modeled but start to rearrange, it is quite a bit of an effort to change the stuff. When you rearrange lanes or have new structures, it goes rather squiggly up and down and so on, which could be improved. The visual outputs of the DIREPs of the process models are pixelated and have a bad image quality. It is a PNG or JPEG, and you cannot export it as a PDF. When you have rather large processes, you should be able to arrange them hierarchically. Currently, it is not supported. If you use sub-processes and inflate a process, suddenly the arrangement is totally different, and although you know the process, you have to look where is it now. You need a good understanding of the levels of your processes before you start in Bizagi. It can have automatic support for optimal presentation. In BPM, you should have it from the top left to the bottom right. However, in most cases, people don't know how they should arrange it. Therefore, it would be nice to have a suggestion system for different arrangements to be able to better present the process.""It should provide the ability to create a simple application. It can be used for database modeling diagrams and forms, but it should also support CRUD, that is, create, read, update and delete.""I would like to see the automation process included in the next release.""Bizagi needs a way to define categories such as process groups like the APQC framework, PCF, and handle the processes within it.""Can be difficult for new users."

"When I am working with my Mac and I right-click to copy and paste, it doesn't work.""The cost of upgrading the product should be lower.""It's very focused on specific modern languages and it doesn't do necessarily general systems software engineering with diagrams. They should expand the diagram types for the languages.""There's lots of documentation. They process multiples of guides. They've got all kinds of guides and documentation out there, but it's kind of hard to find. There are a lot of videos. You can go to YouTube and find videos on how it's been used in different ways, but it just kind of scratches the surface.""The documentation for MagicDraw and the video tutorials compared to other competitors is an area for improvement.""For the next releases, I would like to have them import requirements from other sources. They could make it very easy to do that because there are a lot requirements management tools like DOORS, D-O-O-R-S, Dynamic Object Oriented Management. A lot of folks use DOORS to create a requirement. For those requirements you allocate them to a component in the architecture and a verification method for that requirement. It would be good if we could import those into MagicDraw as components so you don't have to manually do these things.""The licenses are expensive compared to similar tools. At the moment, the user is open to using MagicDraw if it's 15% more than other solutions. If it were to cost any more, they wouldn't use it.""The UI UX of the tool is not really user-friendly and needs to be completely reformed."
