Third Party Extensions for Enterprise Architect

Many of our partners have developed extension technologies for Enterprise Architect, created with Enterprise Architect's powerful customization frameworks. These Third Party Extensions provide specialist tools to the wider Enterprise Architect Community.

Third Party Frameworks Description
EA-Matic EA-Matic is an add-in for Sparx Enterprise Architect that enables rapid EA add-in development.
Insurance Frameworks Inc Insurance Frameworks Inc. provides an enterprise business framework, business reference models and methodologies for the insurance, wealth management and banking industry.
SGAM Toolbox The "SGAM Toolbox" supports the development of Smart Grid Architectures in reference to the "Smart Grid Architecture Model" (SGAM)



EA-Matic is an add-in that enables rapid EA add-in development. It uses the built-in scripting features of EA to relieve you of developing, building and deploying full-blown EA add-ins. Aimed at corporate environments, it greatly reduces the time to introduce new functionality. With EA-Matic you can develop your EA add-in using nothing but EA, and deploy changes instantly to all model users.

The possibilities are endless. You can validate your own modelling rules, keep your model consistent by preventing the deletion of elements that are still used, add your own context menus, or make self-maintaining diagrams. The only limits are those of your imagination.

The table below shows how add-in development with EA-Matic differs from classic add-in development.

EA-Matic Classic add-in development
Required tools Only EA Visual Studio, Sharpdevelop, or equivalent IDE
Installation of a new version Instantly available for all users without the need to install anything again on the workstations. Msi-deployment on all workstations
Languages VBScript, JScript, JavaScript VB, C#
Security access on development machine Normal user rights are enough. Local Administrator rights required.

SGAM Toolbox

Insurance Frameworks

Overview of Plug-In
The "SGAM Toolbox" supports the development of Smart Grid Architectures in reference to the "Smart Grid Architecture Model" (SGAM) as proposed by the "Smart Grid Coordination Group" among the European mandate M/490. It aims at supporting all stakeholders along the engineering process of Smart Grid systems.

Functionality and Benefits
The core element of the tool is a Metamodel of the SGAM that provides a Domain Specific Language (DSL) for modelling. As the focus of the tool is on applicability, it delivers numerous templates, reference data and more. It is complemented with a very well documented step-by-step development process. In addition, some video tutorials, reference examples and Scientific Publications (addressing the background) support an easy start. The tool is free to use.
