Amazing modeling tool!

PROS

When searching for a new modeling tool, we came across Astah Professional. We were skeptical of the features and so elected to try the free trial. Boy are we glad we did! We went ahead an purchased multiple licenses because the product does everything it says and then some! It is by far the easiest, most helpful modeling tool we've come across, and has made our diagramming much smoother and more efficient. Any questions we've had have been promptly answered by the support team, and they are always very courteous and informative. Definitely worth the price!

CONS

There is nothing that is a deal breaker for us. In terms of preference, it would be nice for operation parameters to have initial values as an option, but the type modifier works well enough for our purposes.

Reasons for switching to Astah Professional

We were having a hard time utilizing their IDE and the documentation was overly complicated to get through and understand. The learning curve was just too high.

Why Astah after all these other modeling tools?

My overall experience with Astah has been very good over the years and I will continue to use the tool in coming years.

PROS

Today, when using a modeling tool, my primary concern regards the usability of the tool. If I need to model something quickly then I want to be able to get my ideas onto a canvas quickly and easily. The last thing that I want to do is to wrestle with the tool as my ideas and thoughts float away.The installability of the tool is really good as well as I never have any issues with updates/upgrades and they are always welcome as I know the vendor always adds some new feature that I didn't know that I needed.

CONS

One of my biggest complaints about Astah has been its lack of good and reliable reverse engineering, specifically with C++. Another feature that I wish was improved is the sharing of models and I don't believe that the current feature is good enough.

Reason for choosing Astah Professional

Usability has been the primary quality that Astah has proved above the others.

Astah pro review

Very good. I work nearly full day with Astah since the creation of Jude

PROS

Adherence to UML method. Look & feel. real referential between diagrams

CONS

Some bugs on large files Search (see above) not possible to adapt models to other methods (TOGAF, BPMN...) no link between activities & lanes in activity diagrams and other UML components (actors...)

Reasons for switching to Astah Professional

Rational Rose was too expensive. Other tools not enough UML compatible.
