Join us in Utrecht

It's just 2 weeks to go until the next EA User Group Event in central Utrecht, hosted by The Future Group.

Three streams of content over 2 days from EA and industry thought leaders. What's not to like?

There's a training day - with half day sessions allowing delegates to focus in depth on topics - on Thursday 27th September. That is taking place at the Tribes Utrecht Central Station venue.

And then on Friday 28th September, a user group day with shorter presentations, user stories and networking. For that we are returning to the fantastic Nederlandse Spoorwegen (Dutch Railways) headquarters venue where we met in 2014. 

The eaDocX / Model Expert team will be there both days, to answer your questions and show you what's new. And Ian will be presenting on Friday too.

For full details of the agenda and venue and to book your place, visit

See you there!

Attribute mapping



Mapping attributes is a really useful feature of Sparx EA. It lets to describe in detail where an attribute comes from or goes to.

The mapping can be seen easily in a class diagram. The problem is that inputting the data is painful, but all that is fixed in eaDocX V4: see our short video


eaDocX V4 released

We are pleased to announce the release of eaDocX 4.0, complete with a new Trial version


Lots of NEW FEATURES plus full compatibility with EA v 14 *

If not, then try out the trial version of eaDocX V4. It is a full-function version of eaDocX Collaboration Edition, so has all the functions and features of the full product.

Group Licences



A single licence for your whole team:

eaDocX Group Licence


With simple installation and management plus maximum flexibility for users.

No need to be connected to a shared server for the licence to work.

Annual review lets you flex your eaDocX licences as your needs change.


There's more:

  • eaDocX monitors the use of the software against each licence key. So it is triggered whenever eaDocX functionality is used, NOT whenever EA is opened. 
  • The licence is sized to match your expected use. And as with floating licences, is not based on the number of individuals using the licence over a year but the concurrent usage. If the size is exceeded then the licence will not stop working. But we will report back to you and then use that information as part of the data set to agree what size of licence is appropriate for the next year.
  • Note that if the usage is a lot more than was expected (e.g. we are regularly seeing double the number of users within a few months of the licence starting) then we may request an additional fee ‘in year’ to upgrade you to a more appropriate size of licence.
  • A Group licence is valid for 12 months only, so Group licence customers will receive a new licence key each year, subject to renewal.
  • N.B. eaDocX Organisational licences were an early version of the Group licence. So Organisational licence users already know the benefits of working in this way.
