    - Richard Halter
  • To be honest, EA is a fantastic product... the price you charge is way below what it is worth!

    - Matt Ellis
    Solutions Reality
  • I love this tool. I've been more productive within the first 30 minutes of installing than I ever have with Visio.

    - Phil Boyd
    Sr. Sys. Consultant
  • I've used Enterprise Architect for years, and recommend it to my clients considering for UML modeling tools.

    - Keith McMillan
  • EA lets you describe the parts and pieces of what you want to build, and how they are interrelated.

    - Davide Marney
    Software Architect
  • I bought EA a few weeks ago after looking around for a UML tool and EA seemed to have it all - great functionality, rock bottom price.

    - Peter M Jones
    Systems Engineer
  • I would have to say that EA has one of the most comprehensive and exhaustive feature sets of any UML lifecycle tool at any price. The performance is fast and everything is conveniently located in a single interface.
