Company Overview


出乎意料的是,我竟用不著自己作出決定,因為三天之後有一封開克斯狠狠干 “伊羅娜,伊羅娜,站住,站住!”我在她身後直喊,她走得出奇的迅 疾。最後她到底還是停住了腳步,臉上絲毫也沒露出驚訝的神情。她剛才從 旁走過的時候,自然早已看見我了。日日操 ? 蛋糕師傅也就是這點心鋪的老板; 坐在這樣一個姑娘旁邊是件愜意的事。她說起話來元音很重,滿嘴匈牙 利口音,幾乎使我力之傾倒。在這樣燈火輝煌的大廳里,坐在擺設如此華貴 的餐桌旁就餐,背後站著身穿制服的僕人,面前是精美絕倫的佳肴,確是件 愜意的事。我左側鄰座的那位女客說話稍帶波蘭口音,我覺得也很嫵媚動人, 雖然長得略嫌豐滿。也許,這只是酒意使我易于動心?先是金色透明的葡萄 酒,接著是殷紅如血的酒漿,現在又是像香檳酒一樣泡沫翻滾的葡萄酒。戴 著白手套的僕人,從你身後把盛在銀壺和大肚酒瓶里的各色名酒可說是十分 揮霍地斟個不停。一點不錯,這位能干的藥劑師一點也沒有瞎吹牛。開克斯 法爾伐家的氣派簡直和皇家宮廷不相上下。我還從來沒有吃過這樣豐盛的筵 席,我做夢也沒有想到,宴會上可以吃到這樣精美、珍奇、卡盛的佳肴名菜。 放在大盤里端上來的菜肴一道比一道味美,一道比一道名貴,簡直無奇不有, 美不勝收;金色的汁水里泡著淺藍色的鮮魚,魚背上放著萵苣,四周瓖了蟹 肉片;一層層米飯,堆得高高低低,上面擺著閹雞;在甜燒酒發出的藍色火 苗里,各色市丁在熊熊燃燒。色彩鮮艷、味道甜美的冰淇淋球一個個高高鼓 起。各色佳果想必已經游歷了半個世界,密密層層地摞在銀籃里,看上去逗 人喜愛。真是名菜佳果,無窮無盡。最後斟上五顏六色的燒酒,或綠,或紅, 或白,或黃,像一道七色彩虹,同時送上蘆筍一樣粗細的雪茄和一杯美味的 咖啡。就去撸 不用說,我當然有空;我們在早已闃無人跡的街道上踱來踱去,走了好久。接連幾天我們還長 時間地呆在一起。他講的故事,我只作了很少的改動,無非是把驃騎兵改成輕騎兵,把軍營的位置在 地圖上挪動一下,以便叫人難以辨認,並且出于深謀遠慮,預先把所有的真實姓名全部劃掉。但是本 質的東西我一點也沒有添枝加葉,現在不是我,而是講這故事的人開始現身說法。 Sparx Systems specializes in high performance and scalable visual modeling tools for the planning, design and construction of software intensive systems.

Company Background

Established in 1996 by Geoffrey Sparks, Sparx Systems is an Australian company based at Creswick, Victoria. With over ten years' investment in the development of Enterprise Architect, the company's motivated team of employees are dedicated to the ongoing development and support of modeling tools and object-oriented methodologies.

Company Vision

Sparx Systems aims to satisfy the growing needs of business and IT users involved in software and systems development, by providing immediate delivery and ongoing support of affordable, productive and user-friendly modeling software.

Sparx Systems believes that a complete modeling and design tool should be used throughout the full lifecycle of systems development. Our subscription plan reflects this, and our belief that "life-cycle" software should be as dynamic and modern as the systems you design and maintain.

Our software is intended for use by analysts, designers, architects, developers, testers, project managers and maintenance staff - almost everyone involved in a software development project and in business analysis. It is Sparx Systems' belief that highly priced CASE tools severely limit teams, and ultimately organizations, by narrowing the effective user base and inhibiting access to important model information. Therefore, Sparx Systems is committed to both maintaining an accessible pricing model and to distributing a 'Read Only' (EA Lite) version of Enterprise Architect for use by those who only need to view modeling information.

User Base

Over 740,000+ effective users worldwide, the user base is located predominantly in the United States, Canada, UK, Spain, Germany, Japan, Scandinavia, France, the Netherlands and other Western European countries and also enjoys strong support in Australia, Brazil, Mexico, New Zealand, Korea, South Africa, Argentina, Chile, and more.

Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect is used by companies of all sizes from large, well-known multi-national organizations to smaller independent companies and consultants. Enterprise Architect is also deployed across a wide range of industries including: aerospace, banking, web development, engineering, finance, medicine, military, research, academia, transport, retail, utilities (gas, electricity etc.), electrical engineering and many more. It is used effectively for UML and business architecture training purposes in many prominent colleges and universities around the world.

The Sparx Systems online discussion forum confirms a solid and active user base.
