You don't need to take our word on how Visual Paradigm can assist you in software development. Hear what our happy customers say. We would love to help you achieve your goal just as these great people have.
In my own use, Visual Paradigm was the best solution for my program planning... I have tried some other programs but this is the best...
Un très grand bravo pour votre software que j'utilise tous les jours. Je lui trouve des qualités exceptionnelles telles que :
Am currently evaluating the community version and love it. It's easy to learn and use. (Feature used: Entity relationship, deployment and use case diagrams.)
Very satisfied even if I'm working with a community license. Does pretty much what I need it to do: model and visualize my documentation and software development in a very rich way.
I found E-R Modeling and database modeling useful since there are many options to configure on each model and entity, giving me less work to do when programming the database.
Just wanted to write a brief note to thank you guys for such a great product. I was sitting in a restaurant yesterday with a first time client, and during 1 hour managed to capture about 90% of the user information I needed to implement the project by creating a business diagram from the client's mind, and then simply converting that into use cases which I'll later connect to stories and prototypes.
You've simplified my job so much that I'm now working on 4 projects simultaneously, which I could never do before. One of the projects I'm trying out really using your VPository to share live model updates and project management. I'm a bit new to that aspect, but so far ... works great!
Just wanted you to know that your application is truly a life-changing one for me.
I went in my teaching from Enterprise Architect to Visual Paradigm. I use 30-day FREE Trial Version in four weeks teaching block because we are small private university and I can not get involved in Visual Paradigm Academic Training Partner Program. I have to be of course in my teaching very efficient. The only problem is that students need for their research and bachelor thesis choose another software.
While teaching an information systems analysis and design course, I reviewed over 20 CASE tools which supported UML. Visual Paradigm was by far the most intuitive and comprehensive. I greatly appreciated the fact that it was available for free academic use. The 30 students were able to easily complete lab assignments on use case, class, activity, and sequence diagramming; the Textual Analysis feature simplified diagramming even further. Most students chose to use the tool to complete their analysis and design projects. Visual Paradigm was definitely an asset to the class.
Teaching with Visual Paradigm is a pleasure. It is easy-to-use, it is intuitive, and above all it does not get in the way of conveying the semantics of object oriented modeling. It lets you focus on the problem at hand. As educators in the degree programs we often go to great lengths to keep our teaching vendor neutral. For many of us a tool such as VP is merely a vehicle for teaching OO analysis and design, and a tool that does not get in the way of our teaching is a boon.
Teaching aside, as a battle-scared software practitioner I find VP to be extremely productive. It is comprehensive in terms of UML 2.0 compliance. Combined with popular development environments such as NetBeans, Eclipse, .NET, and others, VP supports all phases of the software development life cycle. I find its requirements gathering features (textual analysis, CRC cards, and use case modeling) to be particularly remarkable.
Over the past five years I have used several leading UML modeling tools in an academic setting. I have found Visual Paradigm best suited for this purpose for the following reasons:
