The advice I would give to people looking into this product is that I would suggest for them to try it. It is priced really well with an attractive pricing model. On a scale from one to ten (where one is the worst and ten is the best), I would rate Visual Paradigm by giving it eight-out-of-ten. It could not really be any higher because of the connectivity issues I experienced with SQL Server. Also, I had a pretty good machine at the time and I got the impression that Paradigm could be quite a heavy user of resources. It took a lot of memory when it ran.

I'm a consultant. We're just customers and we're simply using the free version of the product as we're a pretty small company. Overall, I would rate the solution eight out of ten due to the fact that it's a great solution. That said, I have no real comparison. I've used only really used this solution. Currently, I'm learning about this solution and process mining and solutions like UiPath as well. We're moving towards the RPA world.

When it comes to using the product, there is a learning curve, and it depends on how you want to start using it. If it's just for quickly modeling something to visualize the problem or explain stuff, it's not that hard. If you really want to build your enterprise repository, of course, you still need a lot of principles and guidelines on how you want to use it for the enterprise. With the tree structure for modeling, it's actually pretty easy to change things. My advice is simply to start using it. I know the ARIS and Enterprise Architect products. I also know tools like ArchiMate. Then there are visual design tools for architecture, but in the end, of all of the products that I've seen so far, Visual Paradigm has one of the lowest learning curves. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.
