Great training available with traceability a key feature
Pros and Cons
  • "Traceability is a fantastic feature."
  • "The algorithm is outdated and should be upgraded."

What is our primary use case?

I use this solution to model enterprise software architecture. We are customers of SAP and an educational organization in Poland. 

What is most valuable?

Traceability is a fantastic feature. 

What needs improvement?

They should upgrade the algorithm. The solution currently has an old algorithm and there are now free tools on the market that offer better options for drawing algorithms. I'd like to see a Polish spell checker in the solution. They have English and Spanish but not Polish.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for 15 years.
