What is Microsoft Visio?
Who uses Microsoft Visio?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Microsoft Visio in their tech stack.
Is anyone using Structurizr that moved from Microsoft Visio? I am looking for a better tool to move through software development tasks. Currently using a whiteboard to develop scope and needs but find we often are in a single plane of visualization and miss module interdependencies.
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.
