Wireframes is a widely adopted UX tool that allows designer and client to work together in identifying the content and functionality of screens. A wireflow makes UX even more effective by harnessing the power of wireframe and flowchart, creating a step-based UX diagram that illustrates the steps and decision points of particular scenarios and the possible navigation paths throughout these steps.
A wireflow is formed by a sequence of screens called 'scenes'. Depending on the level of detail required, you can create and embed detailed wireframe as a scene, or to compose a scene by choosing the components from the wireframe symbol library. 400+ ready-to-use wireframe symbols are available.
As long as a user interaction involves alternate and exceptional cases, there are multiple paths of wireflow that can be navigated. To reduce the application complexity, the wireflow editor allows you to specify a particular path (or often called scenario) of wireflow to be animated, so that we can split a user feature to be in sync with the partition of a simple user story or testing scenario.
Besides animating a path in the wireflow diagram, you can also play the wireframes one by one as a storyboard slideshow. You can stay at a slide, navigate around the wireflow back and forth as you like. This facilitates deeper discussions on UX, which is particularly useful when people want to spend a bit more time on one or more scenes, or skip through some of them in the wireflow path.
Seamless Techniques Expressed in Prescribed Steps (STEPS) is a powerful and groundbreaking feature for software development. Like a recipe that tells you how to cook a meal, STEPS are recipes that lead you through a series of well-defined steps for conducting a particular (reusable) analysis or modeling pattern for certain aspect of your development process. Your team can reuse or choose the appropriate Wizard in your project from the default set provided by Visual Paradigm.
How does it work?
Select Modeling > New Wizard... from the toolbar. You will then be redirected to a page of all wizards. Click on a wizard to browse for its details, and to import it into your project and start working.

Design your desirable views of model data in a tabular form for bulk-view/edit/prioritize/visualize using Model ETL big data technology.
The ETL engine reads and analyzes a specified type of modeling artifacts and extract the desirable information into a models-to-properties table; giving a summarized view of the model elements which could otherwise be scattered all over the diagram and property windows.
The transform function facilitates the editing and/or conversion of the acquired data into the desired state. With the ETL Table, you can perform mass editing on multiple modeling artifacts quickly and accurately. For example, extract a list of use cases from a diagram to form an ETL Table, go over the use cases, and then determine their importance with clients and adjust their priority accordingly in one shot!
The ETL Table can also be used as a resizable and moveable table legend within the diagram pane. You can even create multiple ETL Tables which associates with different kinds of models and criteria. The combination of the model (or diagrams) with the annotated tables side-by-side provides a more precise and informative representation for readers.
A basic Model ETL can extract data from a particular model or diagram (i.e. Use Case Diagram or a data table). Now, the enhanced model ETL allows you to extract data from multiple models or diagrams and combine those information into an integrated Model ETL Table for data transformation and visualization.
Aspect Oriented Properties (AOP) is a user-defined set of tagged values of a particular aspect for reusable purpose. It is attachable and detachable on-demand for model extension, i.e., an AOP of cost estimation is applicable for both use cases or user stories and can often be used in combination of an ETL table.
Instantly create a view from a model element being listed in an ETL Table, through dragging that element from the ETL Table shape. It's simple, flexible and intuitive.
Process tailoring is always essential since one size really can't fit all. The Just-in-Time Process Map supports process tailoring by featuring a full set of generic work items that enable the acquisition and storage of diagrams and text throughout a custom process. Simply drag the work items you need from the gallery to the process map. Process workers can then perform the action required during process execution.
Successful enterprises are aware of change and often need to develop business plans to manage change from time to time. The OMG BMM provides an excellent framework to understand and communicate the motivation behind changes and for developing and defining business plans with minimal effort. It can be tailored to suit enterprises of all sizes. BMM Guide-Through process automates the entire development process for your team from analyzing, planning and to query of the model information of the BMM. Report generation is yet another essential features for enhancing your team communication.
The generic Guide-Through process assists you in developing a Business Motivation Model that aids strategic planning. By following the process step-by-step, the core elements of strategic planning will be identified and automatically archived in the Documentation Cabinet.
There are two approaches of strategic planning with the BMM Guide-Through process.
Baseline-first: Go through a discovery phase of the current business state, then identify problem areas and come up with a target state elaborated from the current state.
Target-first: Starts by assessing the problem areas and opportunities. Shape the business based on the result of assessment.
An enterprise has a "reason to be", expressed as a set of Ends (what an enterprise wants to be) and Means (what to do in order to become what it wants to be) elements. Not only does the Guide-Through process allows you to identify and document all BMM elements, it also allows relating these elements and keeping the consistency of data through the reusability support. Example usage: selection of the Objective(s) that a Tactic aim to achieve.
Generate BMM documents for the communication of strategic plans. The BMM Guide-Through process comes with 8 pre-defined document templates.
No prior learning is required because you are guided through the process with instructions and samples.
As you progresses phase by phase and works have been done step-by-step incrementally, the information will be collected from your work in background in forming different business plans documents, known as deliverables. All these deliverables will be generated, versioned and archived in a well categorized Deliverable Repository.
Use Story Map to organize large collection of user stories with ease. Now you can overview, relate and break-down complex software features into manageable user activities, user tasks and epics and subsequently to user stories, synchronizing with multiple sprints for team collaborations.
Use four-level story map to deal with scaled agile project, while you can always switch it back to the standard three-level story map structure in a few clicks.
Dealing with your story estimation with traditional one dimensional affinity table or handling risk at the same time for dealing with project spike issues with 2 dimensional affinity estimation. Everything is configurable for fitting your needs.
Different diagrams correspond to different views of a system that could be combined to form a full picture of a system. Any particular element of one diagram may be linked or evolved from an element in another diagram. Visual Paradigm provides a gateway to identify new elements from existing ones and establish the linkages in between. To do this, extract glossary term from the name or description of an element. When you do this, you can optionally create model element with the identified term. The created element will be dropped to the Diagram Backlog pane, readily for use in diagram.
To ensure that your work continues to remain secure and robust, we have upgrade our ORM support to use Hibernate 5.1, the latest version of Hibernate.
Visual Paradigm Community Circle lets you view and learn Visual Paradigm by importing selected diagrams straight into the Visual Paradigm platform for experimenting, practicing them as templates.
Support of over 150 new connection rules stated in ArchiMate 3.0.1.
Modeling is not just diagramming. It involves model evolving, refinement and traceability. Model baggage is a Visual Paradigm's unique feature for automating model refinement and reusability, making the model transformation process less complex, reliable and traceable among models.
Project reference is a mechanism to facilitate model reuse across projects and to maintain model consistency among your design. Bidirectional references allow two project model elements to create reciprocal linkage while simultaneously checking for infinite model elements references with cyclical dependency.
Easily set up a local workspace to try out cloud based features such as Task Management, PostMania, user story map, Just-in-Time Process Map, etc. No registration required.
