What are the advantages of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM over MS Visio for you to prefer the former to the latter?
I choose ConceptDraw DIAGRAM because it was the closest to MS Visio on the Mac side. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM has all of the features I need and can output as a MS Visio file if needs to be... — says Kris Rockwell, Hybrid Learning Systems
The main reason I switched is that I moved from a PC to Mac and currently there is no version MS Visio for Mac. And installing virtual PC etc. etc. was just too much of a hassle... — says Randolph Jacinto
MS Visio has become quite complicated and it turns out that UML diagrams are easier to create with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM MS Visio has some strange behavior that, I think, is related to integrating with modeling tools such as Rational, etc. I just want a diagramming software and nothing more! Another reason is I like the Apple OS X operating system very much. I've been a long-time Window's user (and software developer) and I'm tired of the same old thing, I suppose. In general, the software for Apple platform seems nicer and easier to use... — says Andrew Joseph
The main reason for the switch is my switch from a PC to a Mac computer. I have tried Graffle Pro and found that it wasn't the perfect replacement. I am still playing with the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM draw capabilities. One thing that MS Visio does extremely well ( better than any other diagram product that I have seen) is that you can cut and paste the diagram into a Word.doc and it looks perfect. That is not true of Graffle Pro and quite frankly not really the case with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM from what I can tell. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM does have some nice templates and useful features. I will continue to use it and evaluate the capabilities. The ability to go back and forth between PC and Mac and MS Visio and ConceptDraw is an important capability... — says John Latham.PhD, Managing Partner, GENITECT LLC
