Archital4 – Your dashboard for Enterprise Architect
Archital4 is an adaptive web portal comprising of a number of Apps, similar to a SmartPhone. These apps present data, in graphical or tabular form, extracted directly from your Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect model repository. For the tabular Apps, data can be edited within the App immediately updating the underlying Enterprise Architect model repository.
The portal is a responsive UI and hence the screen presented will display correctly on any device, laptop, tablet or mobile phone.
Each instance begins with the generic platform which is then customised to meet the client’s requirements. For example, a client can decide how Archital4 should look, the number and nature of the Apps, what data they wish to be displayed and how it should be presented.
Who can use Archital4?

The portal presents data from the Enterprise Architect repository to users via a series of Apps in the dashboard. With these Apps you are able to review, manipulate and update project critical data directly to and from your model repository, including;
- Requirements Coverage.
- Model maturity.
- Project timeline.
- Resource utilisation.
- Model Stability.
- Tool Integration.
Typically these Apps fall into two categories:
- Statistical Apps – these present data in chart form (pie chart, bar graph, line graph etc). Statistical apps have a “drill down” facility typically to a table format which allows navigation, search and edit facilities.
- Notification Apps – are updated automatically when the model repository changes.
