Change Management

As a repository is developed it will become the data store for valuable organizational information assets, and it is imperative that this data is protected and maintained. Enterprise Architect has sophisticated tools to ensure the information is protected, including full integration with all the leading Version Control Systems, Baselines that are snapshots of your model that can be taken at important milestones, and Auditing that can track the finest changes to a model. A Project Transfer function helps you to make backups of models without involving information technology personnel. There are also Model Validation and Project Integrity Checkers to ensure the repository is maintained with a clean bill of health, and a powerful role based Security System to ensure users can collaborate easily.

Version Control of Packages

Enterprise Architect Model Version Control helps you to:

  • Coordinate sharing of Packages between users, with either read-only access or update access, ensuring that work on different areas of the model is coordinated and synchronous rather than conflicting
  • Save and retrieve a history of changes to Packages

To use version control in Enterprise Architect, you require a third-party source-code control application such as:

  • Subversion
  • CVS
  • MS Team Foundation Server (TFS), or
  • Any other version control product that complies with the Microsoft Common Source Code Control standard

Tracking Changes

Enterprise Architect provides two separate but complementary facilities for tracking changes to data across the project:

  • Auditing of model changes
  • Baselining and differencing to capture and roll back changes
Tracking Changes

Project Data Transfer

Enterprise Architect enables you to transfer project data between project data repositories either for:

  • Sections of the project (XMI and CSV) or
  • The whole project, row by row, table by table (in the Corporate, Business and Software Engineering, Systems Engineering and Ultimate editions of Enterprise Architect)
