EA SAAS & Repositories in the cloud
This large manufacturing company have been using Sparx Enterprise Architect for many years, in their offices around the world. They have around 100 EA users, mostly creating, maintaining, and using their Enterprise Architecture, which they use to plan changes to their IT environment.
Because they are spread around the world, the different EA teams have evolved to use their own repositories, so creating a full end-to-end picture of the architecture was becoming more difficult. Teams were also spending too much time supporting their colleagues, and helping their own IT department to maintain their Sparx environment.
We worked with them over a few weeks to understand how we could best help them, and they decided that they needed all the repositories from all the EA teams to be accessible to everyone. Once they found out that EA could run 100% in the cloud, they decided that this would remove lots of the day-to-day pain of supporting their own environment.
