Installation Guide

Essential Architecture Manager can be used in one of 2 modes:

  • Stand Alone - on a single notebook or workstation.
  • Multi User- with the repository installed and managed on a server, accessed by many users over a network.

The choice of installation mode depends mainly on how many people need to access your architecture model. In either mode, Essential Architecture Manager can be used for any scale of model from particular point solutions to full enterprise models. It is simple to migrate from one mode to the other and many users start in stand-alone mode, moving to a multi-user installation as the user base increases.
