The latest Sparx Enterprise Architect build contains some cool new features that you will definitely want to check out! Sparx Systems announced availability of the Sparx Enterprise Architect v15.1 beta release for registered users with active maintenance on their EA licenses.

Here are just a few of the key features in the new release that you’ll want to check out:
- Perspective Management: This feature is a must-have for distributed architecture teams with different types of architects working together on your enterprise models. You can define your own custom perspectives, that limit the available modeling constructs, control the rules on how solutions are created in alignment with your metamodel and architecture policies and hide stuff that specialized architects don’t need to see (giving them a simpler user interface)
- Enhanced Decision Modeling with DMN: Digital Transformation and the use of Machine Learning within your organization make modeling your decision rules more important than ever. Sparx upgraded their support for DMN in this release with new expression editor capabilities, rule validation, simulation and more. If you haven’t checked out decision modeling using Sparx EA yet, you should download the Sparx EA v15.1 beta today and give it a try.
- Multi-Language Support: The Sparx EA v15.1 beta includes enhanced support for multiple languages, both within your architecture models and the ability to generate translated documentation in different languages. This capability is essential for companies needing to support stakeholders and team members in different regions – especially if you are using Prolaborate to support enterprise collaboration.
- ArchiMate 3.1: The Open Group recently released v3.1 of the ArchiMate modeling notation. Sparx EA v15.1 supports Value Stream element types in ArchiMate and includes out-of-the-box ArchiMate views to include new version 3.1 relationship types.
