"Best of Breed"

What do you like best?

It's stable and reliable and easy to work with

What do you dislike?

There are solutions that you have to pay for

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it before deciding one way or the other.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Consider it as documentation, which it is at the start of and throughout a project. The simple truth is you can't document what you don't understand. And your understanding deepens as you add functionality to the diagram.

I was a project manager it IT for over 25 years and have ALWAYS found it easiest to work with a group when they're all looking at a simplified picture of a complex problem. That simplification can be a tough job, but I've always found it to be worth the effort.

If you have a series of decision trees, you could overlook the fact that a "NO" was ignored, or that you left yourself with no way out of a loop (for all of you coders out there).

It's really useful for managing change and for root-cause analysis. And to (again) simplify a complex process so senior management can understand what's going on and why.

"My take on ConceptDraw Pro/Diagram"

What do you like best?

Conceptdraw Diagram and Mindmap are great tool for highly flexible diagramming requirements, be it business, educational or industrial diagrams. Mindmap tool on the other hand is a great accessory to capture ideas to brainstorm, organize them into structured information and notes. Integration with MS Visio, Office and Evernote is seamless. I would like to add thse key points as pros

1. Minimal wide and yet highly functional drawing canvas.

2. A large host of ready made solutions for any business and industry diagram requirements.

3. Seamless integration with MS Visio

3. Vast library of templates, themes and graphic elements.

4. Great export features including svg and eps.

What do you dislike?

1. Learning curve and over whelming set of tools and options ( pro and con in one)

2. Minor high DPI scaling on my 4k monitor. Some sections looks too tiny.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a fully featured technical, info-graphics diagram making solution for business, education and industry needs , Conceptdraw diagram is the answer. With its wide library of graphical elements and solutions presets, it is a complete suite like nothing else.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use the tool to make great info-graphics, flow charts for presentation, taking notes. Conceptdraw diagram along with Conceptdraw Mindmap helps me with gathering, organizing and presenting ideas and information. A great tool for cognitive learning and conveying information to others.

What Diagramming solution do you use?

"Concept Draw DIAGRAM the allrounder for planning"

What do you like best?

We use CDD in our small business for 2 main areas:

1) Planning and visualizing kitchen and water filtration installation

2) Process visualization in BPMN standard

For both CCD is a very useful and easy to use programm. Since the last upgrade we do much more enjoy the working, as many bugs have been fixed to the workflow is much smoother. We consider the software as easy to learn and to use. All of our team members who came either from graphics or industrial design find it easy to jump in on working.

What do you dislike?

We sill find it sometimes hard to work with the software as many of the common short keys are different or do not exist. As standard we see the normal short keys of mac and Adobe. For example zoom you wanna have at cmd+ "+" So sometimes the software feels a bit like a windows software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it for visualizing interior planning and BPMN.

"ConceptDraw Office helps MyNew Technologies"

What do you like best?

ConceptDraw has been an excellent suite of tools used for preparing our customers with brilliant solutions to IT projects over the years from MyNew Technologies’ first inception of Concept Draw Office 2, in 2012 as we have sought the best tool to use in a pure MacOS environment. With its current version of ConceptDraw Office 5, we are able to continue providing high quality project management layouts and IT systems drawings for our customers.

What do you dislike?

Currently we do not have any dislikes for this suite.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Because we are a 100% MacOS environment, we couldn't find another compatible product which met our needs in ease of use, support and upgrade path.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is the perfect tool for us to draw ERD (entity relationship diagrams) for design databases for our customers, network topologies for new IT enabled sites and plan a room’s layout with equipment. We can export these drawings into HTML documents and supply them on a secure web portal.

We use ConceptDraw PROJECT for our project management software because it’s the best we’ve found on a MacOS platform to use. It’s a great tool to plan our agile methodology projects.

An awesome bundled product ConceptDraw MINDMAP (part of the suite), allows our IT analysts to think outside the box with new ideas and paradigms. Using this software, our planning team sits in a co-working conference room, while projecting MINDMAP on large display panels to visualize new concepts based on words, meanings and derivatives of them. Because of this software, it actually improves the teamwork and collaboration within team members.

"Diagrams Made Simple"

What do you like best?

The UI is user-friendly, and you can quickly sketch up diagrams for easy use on a whim. I use it for last-minute presentation boards (diagrams are always the last thing I do, so I save it for the 11th hour), and it always comes out comprehensible for the audience.

What do you dislike?

It's missing a few features, when compared to Microsoft Visio, but the basic functionality that it does have works great.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Compare it to Visio, and see which features really stick out to you. Because if you can get away with using ConceptDraw, I would high recommend switching over.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quick staff and projection reports that are easily digestible at policy meetings or presentations with heavy agendas.

"Fits All Our Needs"

What do you like best?

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM works very well as a drafting software in designing simple industrial products. It is user friendly and easy to handle.

What do you dislike?

Some functions of the software is not that convenient. For example, if I want to edit part of a text paragraph (not the whole paragraph), I have to right-click, go to "object" and choose "edit text", which is time-consuming when I have to edit multiple texts in the drawing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is handy if you want to present concepts of ideas.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use ConceptDraw DIAGRAM to prepare lighting fixture drawings for clients. The benefits of using this software is it is cost-effective and easy to use.
