Sparx Enterprise Architect vs. iServer - has anyone compared them?

I need an Enterprise Architecture tool to be used by all our EA domains. Has anyone done a comparison between these two tools?

Thanks Dorian. We've had look at IBM Systems Architect, but due to the size of our organization and IBM licensing structure, hence we opted for the two in question.

Hello,

My advise is to think about Mega EA, according to Garthner analysis , it
is the best EA tools in 2013 and 2014. and since I am using it, I can tell
you that is definitely the best EA tools in my opinion.

I have not used those two. I have used/use IBM Systems Architect, Visual Paradigm and Rational Rose and my experience with those is that is you want true team cooperation, they always ask you to buy something more. Usually there is a separate tool/SW to make teamwork work. Give them all the specs ahead of time so that if something is not there, you can go back and ask for them to fix the problem.

I would advise anyone to find a good partner for guiding the methodology of modeling. Maybe some technical support is required if you need the integration of your tool.
