After recently passing the 20th year of Enterprise Architect's public life, it is a great pleasure to ship version 15.2

Sparx Systems, the developer of Enterprise Architect – the leading modeling tool for software, business, architecture and systems, has today announced the release of Enterprise Architect version 15.2. This release contains enhanced and expanded core modeling capabilities, with new collaborative and simulation tools, as well as enhanced modeling and navigation capabilities.

"After recently passing the 20th year of Enterprise Architect's public life, it is a great pleasure to ship version 15.2," remarked Geoffrey Sparks, Sparx Systems CEO. " This major new release firmly demonstrates Sparx System's commitment to continual innovation, development and evolution of the Enterprise Architect tool suite and the Pro Cloud Server platform. We look forward to seeing these new tools and capabilities at work, enhancing the modeling and design pipelines of our user base."

Enterprise Architect (EA) 15.2 includes:

  • In model collaboration features such as new peer-to-peer Chat and streamlined Reviews, Discussions, notifications and processes under-pinning collaborative work through either a cloud based or repository based model.
  • New UI windows and tools to better expose some of EA's most useful features, such as the Model Views, Traceability, Searching and Model Navigation. A new Collaboration window that centralizes communication. Simple dashboard views, a new 'Inspector' window, ArchiMate 3.1 Model Exchange File Format, and much more.
  • Mathematical tools and integrations. Significant expansion of the integration with Math tools including new connectivity with MATLAB, Octave and the Cephes Math Library, along with enhancements to Modelica integration. New SysPhS support for consistent simulation with MATLAB, OpenModelica and others. New Solver classes for rendering plots in Octave and Modelica, new JavaScript API's to facilitate mathematical integrations and all new ways of visualizing Simulation results with dynamic charts.
  • Icon Sets. Model your cloud based infrastructures with complete and updated icon libraries for Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Amazon AWS, and a new icon library added for the depiction of Microsoft Azure deployments.
  • JavaScript and API enhancements. Many updates to the built in JavaScript engine, including a new JavaScript based Dynamic Chart API, instant Dynamic charts based on Simulation results, simplified ways to edit underlying JavaScript code for behavioral models and more.
  • Pro Cloud Server (PCS) version 4.2 has been released in conjunction with EA version 15.2. PCS 4.2 has numerous enhancements including Prolaborate's Element Editor and Relationship Matrix, WebEA's support for Model Mail, Decision Tables, Properties editing and general look and feel. Also included is improved support for Active Directory and new Floating License Server options.

"For system engineers, process designers and others who need access to advanced mathematical tools within the modeling environment, the many new mathematical integrations and capabilities within EA significantly expand the modeling environment," stated Geoffrey Sparks. "For teams and for others who share their models and work together, the streamlined collaborative capabilities provide an immediate and very real boost to productivity, accuracy and engagement, especially at times when project stakeholders, modelers, architects and managers are constrained to work at a distance."
