What is Lucidchart?
Who uses Lucidchart?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Lucidchart in their tech stack.
In the past had always used Visio especially in a corporate environment but Lucidchart has been my go to for over 2 years now. The browser based experience is bang on, the UI not too cluttered, the range of symbols decent and the sharing and collaboration features are good enough. Like most web tools things may not sometimes feel as precise but when brain-storming or documenting something thats done it does the trick.
When starting my new role at #Stessa, I needed a solution to start diagramming some of my #Architecture so I'd be able to share my views on #SystemArchitecture with the rest of the team.Visualization is key. Especially when working with complex/distributed systems. You want to make sure everybody's got the same understanding of your approach, so you can better communicate, and start delegating more.
In the past, I had worked with #VisualParadigm for #UML, in both desktop and #SaaS version of the product. Also worked with #LucidChart We also looked at potential alternatives such as Microsoft Visio for instance.
Ultimately, my recommendation was & we closed on Lucidchart, as it won on couple of key aspects : #Team #Collaboration, #Integrations with #AWS for instance, and certain specific visualizations we were looking for / others didn't have.
This isn't just for #Engineering. I've seen Lucidchart being used by #Product Teams, #Network #Engineers, #IT Departments, #DevOps, or non-Engineering related teams.
