SAP Enterprise Architecture Designer (SAP EA Designer) lets you capture, analyze, and present your organization’s landscapes, strategies, requirements, processes, data, and other artifacts in a shared environment. Using industry-standard notations and techniques, organizations can leverage rich metadata and use models and diagrams to drive understanding and promote shared outcomes in creating innovative systems, information sets, and processes to support goals and capabilities.
SAP EA Designer supports consuming your content through:
• Browsing diagrams and model objects online.
• Exporting diagrams as SVG images or printing them.
• Generating reports on your diagrams and model objects.
• Running an impact analysis.
• Posting comments to diagrams and model objects.
- SAP EA Designer supports the creation and editing of the following kinds of diagrams:
- Business Process – Business process diagrams help you identify, describe, and decompose business processes. SAP EA Designer supports:
– BPMN 2.0 Descriptive, which provides a small subset of objects suitable for business process design and analysis.
– BPMN 2.0 Executable, which includes all the standard BPMN 2.0 objects, and is aimed at technical modelers and those who are reverse-engineering from SAP BPM or Eclipse BPMN2 Modeler.
- Database – Physical data models help you analyze and optimize the structure of your database. You can reverse-engineer any supported database to create a physical data model. Generation to SAP HANA, directly to the catalog, or to Web IDE via HDI is also supported.
- Enterprise Architecture Diagram – Enterprise architecture diagrams help you analyze and document your organization, its functions and processes, the applications and systems that support them, and the physical architecture on which they are implemented.
- Process Map – A process map provides a graphical view of your business architecture, and helps you identify your business functions and high-level processes, independent of the people and business units who fulfill them.
- Requirements List – Requirements documents display a hierarchical list of written requirements.
