EA Model Insight
“Let us take the pain out of modeling.”
EA Model Insight is a service offered by Dunstan Thomas Consulting allowing you to apply our expertise to your modeling requirements, without the need for you to train your resources with Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect, ultimately saving you both time and money.
How does the EA Model Insight service work?
This service works by you engaging us to supplement your team with one of our consultants to carry out modelling on your behalf. The service is aimed primarily at organisations that may have domain knowledge but do not have modeling tools to work with and / or those that do not have the time to model effectively.
Our consultants will then engage with your teams either onsite, remotely or a combination of both to model for you using our tool of choice, Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect.
Using this service, there are several ways in which we can help you with modeling:
Custom Meta Models
A Meta Model defines the elements that can be used to build models together with the connectors between them. Specifically, a set of rules which defines what elements can be used on which diagram and which connectors are valid between pairs of elements.
In addition a look and feel can be applied to elements and connectors in addition to data that can be captured for each element and connector.
The benefit that a custom meta model brings to an organisation is that models can be constructed that conform precisely to that organisations modeling requirements.
Enterprise Architect has a powerful technology known as MDG which allows the specification of a meta model. Our consultants will work with an organisation to define their meta model requirements, implement the meta model as an Enterprise Architect MDG and provide documentation on how that organisation can maintain the meta model.

By taking advantage of EA Model Insight you can use our Consultants to help you translate your models captured using other tools into Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect, using your notation of choice.
Some examples include translating models from:
Business Process Modeling
Using BPMN 2.0 and Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect our Consultants will work with you to capture and document your business processes to your required levels of detail.
This modeling can either use the full BPMN 2.0 suite of diagrams or a subset of your choice e.g. collaboration and process diagrams only.
Using UML and Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect our Consultants will work with you to capture and document your software design to your required levels of detail.
This modeling can either use the full UML suite of diagrams or a subset of your choice e.g. Use Case, Component, Class, Activity and Sequence.
Enterprise Architecture Modeling
Using ArchiMate 3.0 and Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect our Consultants will work with you to capture and document your enterprise architecture to your required levels of detail.
This typically models a defined vertical slice of the enterprise architecture utilising elements from Motivation and Strategy, Business Layer, Application Layer and Technology Layer.
Particular emphasis is placed upon inter-layer relationships and the subsequent production of impact analysis diagrams.
Should remote modeling be required then you must be using a Cloud Repository with a profile for a modeling user setup prior to the commencement of modeling. An alternative to this approach is that the modeling activities can be carried out totally offline and then transferred into your repository following review.
