There are a lot of tools for visual design and visualization of information. Some instruments help to deal with routine business tasks while others are professional products used to design complex graphics systems. However, most solutions don’t provide enough functionality and require high license fees.
Services that support online collaboration (Gliffy, Lucidchart, Creately, etc.) are usually limited to a few functions. UI design elements are quite simple and satisfy basic requirements. Professional solutions such as IBM Rational Modeler or Sparx Enterprise Architect are pricy and too complicated for users because they provide highly specialized engineering functions.
Office solutions such as Microsoft Visio and OmniGraffle keep the balance between the ease of usage and functionality. However, these solutions don’t provide enough opportunities for collaboration. As a result, the user is forced to purchase several licenses of the same product to create office diagrams and resolve highly specialized tasks in collaboration with geographically distributed colleagues.
iVizart has been developed as a unified platform to work with different types of graphic visualizations of both information and engineering tasks. iVizart supports online collaboration and includes some features of social networks. Being a SaaS service, iVizart is easily integrated with other products and allows data import and export. Users can enhance functionality by simply adding new graphic elements. iVizart is very easy to use due to its user friendly UI, cloud technologies, and context functions.
Artezio management is considering product monetization. The most promising is a free-to-pay model. In this case the access to iVizart is granted for free, but particular functions and more complex graphic and engineering elements will be provided for a fee.
At the moment the product is in an active development stage. Potential customers are welcome to test a demo version. Public presentation and product release are planned for September 2013.
