News has moved

AS part of the transition to our new websites, from June 11th 2020, all eaDocX news articles will be published at, and all Model Expert news articles will be published at

Announcing new eaDocX and Model Expert websites

eaDocX has been an approved extension for Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect for 9 years.

During that time we have released many updates,from the original MS Word integration provided by Professional edition, extending that with document management and Excel integration in Corporate edition, and then providing the capability to improve and streamline document review and approval with Collaboration edition.

We provided great value ways for individuals and teams to create great documents, with single user and group licences.

And all the while building in customer suggestions for new features and maintaining compatiblity with EA and MS Office updates. All these things have made eaDocX the no.1 best selling add-in for EA.

AND we released an additional product - Model Expert - which is transforming the quality of countless EA models worldwide. 

Today we're excited to announce the arrival of the latest developments..

eaDocX now has a new logo and a new look website at





And Model Expert also has a new logo and new website of its own at

With new styling, layout and navigation, both of these websites have been designed to help you discover all the features and capabilities that make modelling and sharing high quality EA models easier and faster.

We hope you like them!

P.s. Work on both these sites is continuing, to transfer self service features including access to the shop, forum and customer downloads to this new format. Whilst that continues, all these pages are still accessible and available at

In the meantime, if you need help finding anything, please Contact us.

Model Expert 2020 launched

...and any excuse for a rocket photo...



It's taken a very long time, but the latest, much improved, Model Expert 2020 has now been launched.





  • New Insights

It has new ways of displaying what your model contains - dashboards, word clouds and meta-model diagrams

  • Find and Fix stuff easily

It includes menu options to take you directly to problem elements, connectors and diagrams, showing you the issues and letting you fix them there and then.

  • Create Multiple reference models and diagrams

Make it straightforward to check work against your modelling standards. At package or diagram level, check against tailored subsets of your best practice modelling.

  • Real time help to model 'Right First Time'

Define in your model what best practice modelling looks like for your team. Then use that to create your own pop-up help, tailored choices and a simplified User Interface which just apply to specific 'managed packages'. So it's much harder to model poorly.

  • Apply modelling standards in 'Hard' or 'Soft' modes

Sometimes you just want to let people know the best way, but not force them; other times you definitely want to make sure they don't go off piste. The choice is yours.


Apply Model Expert 2020 at whole model or at individual package level

So no matter how large and complex your model, you can give every member of your modelling team the right level of support for them.

As well as giving you the latest on eaDocX and Model Expert, we will be presenting three topics:

Keynote: EA - 19 years of changes

Ian Mitchell

EA was first delivered in 2000, and has had a new release almost every year since then. But where is it now? What's different from how we used it in 2000 compared to 2019? What does the EA eco-system look like after nearly 20 years of changes & add-ons, partners and products, modelling languages and customizations.?

Ian has been an EA user since V3.5 (we're now on V14). In this session, Ian will look across the current Sparx world, to see how people are using EA nearly 20 years after it all started.

He'll look at how the core of the tool has stayed true to the original idea, but how our usage of it has changed. He'll explain how Sparx fits in to the wider worlds of architecture, agile developments and web-based applications and tools, and might even try to predict what the future might hold.


Challenges and Solutions in scaling up EA

Ian Mitchell

So you've bought some EA licences, done some modelling, and had some successes. Now it's time to get more people into the EA world.
Just buy some more licences, and wait for everyone to say how smart you are.
Except it doesn't work like that.

Scaling-up EA is about much more. Everything is about to change: not just more people, but people with a different set of skills, doing different kinds of modelling, under different pressures from different stakeholders. And maybe not even in the same location as you.

Ian will share some experiences of how EA users all over the world are meeting this challenge, by a combination of good project management, sensible scoping, some innovation and lots of hard work. If you're thinking about wider use of EA in your organisation, this is the session for you.


Using EA to become your project manager's best friend

Jackie Mitchell

Modelling has changed how complex IT projects are analyzed, designed and delivered. Models can join up the skills and knowledge of lots of different people. But experience tells us that there is often a disconnect between the language, background, and sometimes even the objectives of Project Managers and modellers.

In this presentation, Jackie who has with many years experience in Aerospace, Telecoms and IT Project and Programme management will discuss what Project Managers want, and identify opportunities for modellers to use the content of their EA models to make everyone more successful.
