Modelio is compliant to the latest version of the ArchiMate standard. This new iteration of the standard offers an evolution of the relationships between ArchiMate elements and a standardization of element representation modes. ArchiMate 3.2 support comes with the availability of new auditing rules to facilitate the detection of errors in enterprise architecture models.
This new tool allows you to automatically merge elements of the same type within the model repository. When merging, all relationships of the merged elements are preserved. The diagrams, in which the merged concepts appear, are updated automatically; this ensures the quality of the resulting models.
You can now insert formatted text and custom images directly into your diagrams. This allows you to meet specific needs or to use a more friendly representation for business teams.
Modelio closer to your approach.
Modeling methods are based on cycles where the state (draft, review, published, archived, etc.) of certain elements must be accurately tracked. The
Modelio 5.3 improvements support you at every step thanks to the even better integrated Modelio Workflow extension and the new status bar.
To learn more about the evolutions of Modelio 5.3, register for our webinar offered on May 11, 2023, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. CET (Paris time, UTC+2).
Modelio 5.3 Workflow extension allows you to monitor and to control changes of the models in your usual working environment. Modelio Workflow makes possible to associate a "workflow" to element(s) and control their state.
The possible states can be customized i.e., you can define the states and the transitions between them in a graphical way. You can also define editing rights and status change notifications per user profile.
Workflow configuration and rights management
Element state history
|The new Modelio status bar brings a more synthetic visualization of each element’s states in your model. Here's what it looks like:|
In this example, the status bar allows you to easily view the synthesis about the selected element:
1.First, its type’s icon , its name (“Design”), the edition status: not editable ;
2.Then, the element is not locked , it is not modified , and it is revision number 12;
3.Finally, the audit overview, showing the number of errors (2), warnings (1), and advices (0), as well as the number of remaining tests to be processed (0), means that the audit has finished.
Modelio 5.3 brings you a new version of REST API: you can now query the users’ information and their rights on each project to manage security.

Our next Modelio version will be focused to improvements and fixes that will make daily use easier. See you in a month!
Modelio 5.1 brings significant improvements to link management in BPMN diagrams, UML activity diagrams, UML state machine diagrams and ArchiMate views. More intuitive and predictable, the new link management also improves visual feedback when creating or editing links.
Regarding anchors and attachments, links are attached to nodes via anchors that are displayed when the link is created or manipulated. The new ergonomics ensure precise positioning and a simple and natural distribution of links on each side of the node. This attachment established by the user will only be modified by an explicit action on his part.
The new position of the links is displayed when the user moves the mouse and sees what the path will be. This dynamic visual feedback applies to the creation or modification of a link and its anchor. When initially drawing a link or re-drawing it later, the user can now impose intermediate waypoints for the link. These points are called "user routing points" and they also benefit from dynamic visual feedback.
Available since January 2021, Modelio V5.0 implements a new server architecture to improve model sharing in a SaaS architecture.
This new architecture takes the best of each technology:
For the icons symbolizing the elements, it is now possible to add the libraries of your choice.
The advantages of SaaS are well known: Modelio is now offered as a managed SaaS solution with 2 service levels: Standard and Premium. These new packages give you access to Modelio support and upgrades. When you agree to upgrade to the latest version, no further action is needed on your part.
The new Java Architect module, which ensures generation and reverse, supports Java 8 and now
Java 11, allowing the exploitation of the Java Platform Module System (JPMS) in modeling. It replaces the Java Designer module.
The current context of a COVID-19 pandemic has forced organizations to gain agility to continuously adapt and to overcome the health but also economic crisis. The white paper "Enterprise Architecture to face unpredictable situations" made available by Modeliosoft will make you discover the importance of modeling your organization to have a broad vision of the company and its ecosystem in order to identify solutions in the event of a crisis and prepare for the future as well as possible.
