Portfolio Manager – modeling many projects in one model

Portfolio Manager - for managing multiple projects in a single Sparx EA repository - supporting a single version of the truth

Real-Time Version Control for Sparx Enterprise Architect

A typical model structure has a locked area where the master versions of everything live – managed by a central architecture team – and each project has their own area, locked to them. But controlling the baseline is hard…
coordinating running projects, making sure everyone is using the latest version, stopping creation of duplicates, making things simple for modelers but making sure they don’t interfere with each other.

Those are the issues Portfolio Manager addresses. It lets modelers create and run several projects at the same time in the same model, giving everyone early visibility of potential issues so they can be resolved, simply.

  • Real-time modeling insights – show where your project changes are overlapping with other projects – if elements have been branched, or elements and connectors are scheduled for deletion.
  • Element roadmaps – with all project teams working in the same model, model managers can have a single view of all proposed and planned changes for each element, and who is responsible for them.
  • Project and Portfolio Views – show all the changes happening in a portfolio of projects and make it easy to identify potential issues and drill down to examine project dependencies, highlighting where management effort needs to be focused.
  • Reveal Model changes through time – Portfolio Manager delivers a summary view of all planned changes to the complete model as each project delivers. Scroll from today into the future, and see how the ‘To-be’ state develops over time.
