On-Premises Proof of Concept V4

April 22, 2022

To demonstrate the value of Prolaborate to the decision-makers in your organization, it is better to start a Proof of Concept (POC). This is the reason we have an option to start a no-obligation free-of-cost PoC where you can try and showcase every single capability of Prolaborate.

You can even bring in all the business users, EA stakeholders, and non-EA users not just to evaluate but to start using Prolaborate.

Licenses can be arranged as per your requirements, and you will be getting a production-grade version of the application without any limitations.

Note: If the PoC is positive, you just have to do a few clicks to replace the license

Before we look at the steps to get started with Proof of Concept, here is the technical architecture of Prolaborate.

Architecture Diagram

Currently, Architects would be using Enterprise Architect to connect to the EA repositories directly through a Server or Cloud connection.

Prolaborate can connect to your existing EA models directly using the OSCL restful APIs provided by Pro Cloud Server, which is again a product by Sparx Systems. There are no changes expected in your current EA infrastructure.

Here are the steps to set up the POC:
