Features

Archimate support

Support of Archimate® 3.0

ArchiMate® is ‘The Open Group’ standardised modeling language that allows you to describe an enterprise architecture according to the various professions’ processes, its organisation, information flow, IT systems, and technical infrastructure.

ObeoSmartEA supports this standard at the metamodel level as well as via its graphical notation in collaborative mode.

Shared repository

Shared repository

Obeo SmartEA is based on a common repository that can be shared between all the members of your Enterprise Architecture team.

Secure access to the repository is guaranteed with a system of customisable profiles allowing you to define repository user access levels that take into account the different types of information, views, and features.

Once connected users can work on different versions of the same architecture (for instance users can work on several different IT development scenarios).

Collaborative modeling

Collaborative modeling

ObeoSmartEA allows several architects to simultaneously work consistently and coherently on the same repository.

Because of our highly agile approach to collaborative working, any changes being made only lock the specific modified elements.

Locks are automatically released when the work is saved and the changes are immediately available to the other users.

Web Client

Web client

The ObeoSmartEA repository can be accessed by a web client.

With the web client users can browse the repository (according individual access profiles) and its related views (diagrams, tables, and matrices).

ObeoSmartEA provides advanced features allowing comprehensive repository browsing: personalised dashboards, advanced research, favourites, business flows, etc.

Impact and gap analysis

Impact and gap analysis

You can analyse your architectures to facilitate designing any transformation trajectories.

  • Impact analysis: detect the elements affected/impacted by changes in the repository
  • Gap analysis: compare current and potential architectures.
Advanced search

Advanced search

The advanced search feature enables users to quickly find repository elements.

Users can select an object type and define the search criteria from attributes values. Specific operators are proposed according to each attribute type.

Branch comparison and merging

Branch comparison and merging

Obeo SmartEA provides a branch mechanism for defining transformation trajectories. Branches allow users to work simultaneously on different versions of the same architecture

Users can at any time move to a specific branch, compare it with other branches and even merge it with others so as to integrate any modifications from other existing branches.

Architecture validation

Architectures Validation

Users can define validation rules that check the content of the repository.

Validation reports can be saved and used to track changes in the repository’s quality over time.

Standards support

Data federation

External data reflecting the actual state of your company’s architecture can be regularly and automatically imported.

Obeo SmartEA open APIs allow for connectors that can supply the repository according to your needs and according to every data source type.

Users can add several other automated tasks to be carried out on the repository content as required.

Standards support

Customization and extensibility

Both the metamodel and the predefined views can be modified, extended, or replaced in line with your specific context.

Obeo SmartEA operates natively with EMF and Sirius, both are open source technologies, for defining metamodels and creating tailor–made modelling diagrams.
