Pros: Easy, cheap, cloud-based. Gliffy is a great way to get into flowcharts, diagrams, and process flow mapping without dealing with low-quality drawing tools or high-price software packages. For students or occasional users, the free level may well be adequate; for small organizations, this is far superior in cost/benefit to Visio.

Cons: I *once* had a printout/export problem because of problems with a browser version. Gliffy support tried very hard to resolve the problem, but it did ultimately require them to do a software correction, and I worked around by using another browser. *Once.*

Overall: I use Gliffy to provide necessary visualization to management, co-workers, and customers when proposing and managing business process change.

Pros: The interface in Gliffy is really slick and intuitive to use- this allows for even complex diagrams to be mapped out very quickly and the user experience is generally very good.

Cons: Google drive integration isnt available on the base subscription- price point is a little higher compared to similarly options and I believe it is an annual plan rather than monthly

Overall: Great interface to work with and did speed up the process of generating complex diagrams

Pros: This software is a million times better than any Visio or other product when you want to create any type of diagrams. I have not ever had an issue that I needed to contact support about either, so the software is very stable/reliable from my experience.

Cons: I primarily use the free version of this software and they do not have very many icon types that are available by default. I know you can import any image you want, but it would be nice if they had more icons/symbols available. Specifically related to networking technology, etc.

Pros: 1. Easy to use tool, with a lot of options available allowing to create diagrams of various categories like DFD, ER diagrams etc.

2. Very extensive library for various kinds of shape.

3. Availability to be used with Confluence is a great feature, where we create diagrams online and can embed these to our documentation.

4.Having the gliffy plugin for Confluence and my rep is really helpful.

5. Helps to collaborate and capture feedback online.

6. Pricing is very reasonable in comparison to similar tools available in the market.

Cons: 1. Missing the feature of brainstorming.
2. Should provide an ability to download diagrams in various available formats

Overall: 1. Easy collaboration.
2. Requirements being represented via diagrams.
3. Ability to explain end to end work flow via flow charts.

Pros: Easy to use, fast to use. Works great in Ubuntu.

Overall: I have been using gliffy as my standard tool for wireframing interfaces, ER diagrams and flow diagrams for several years now. The software is easy to use and intuitive. There's a good range of form elements for wireframing and the export options work well.

They had a bad outage a while ago, but they were up-front about what happened and did a great job of keeping users informed of how service restoration was progressing.

I'm looking forward to making more use of the google docs integration.

Comments: I really like the ease of use of this product and the short learning curve when I first started to use it initially. They continually enhance this product to adapt to my needs and I actually have fun doing the designs I need to for workflows to brainstorming.

Pros: Inexpensive and easy to use

Cons: I have no cons to speak of sorry :)

Simple and quick, Confluence integration, lots of other integrations, but limited

Apr 17, 2014
3/5
Overall

Comments: Gliffy is easier to learn than Visio, fairly intuitive and the common functions you need are close to hand (on right click or contextual menu button close to selected item). Was quicker to draw a medium complexity diagram with boxes and connectors than Visio (or Powerpoint), and the resulting diagram looked good. Good range of available symbols and easy to add your own stencils from a SVG-based artwork (and JPG importing was easy too). Small native file format, and it is text based (JSON) so it is searchable (and hackable if needed). But there are limitations, which means it for the most complex or structured diagrams it can't replace Visio, OmniGraffle, or a Architecture tool (and would not replace Autocad or similar either) I can see this may work better on tablets/touch screens than Visio No bulleted text/numbered lists Connectors won't "hoop" over lines, and you can't add additional bends in connectors (there are workarounds--import "hoop" shape or use a UML shape to fake a hoop with multiple lines) Can't have text less than 9px in size. Limited import and export options. But the product is continuously developing.

Pros: Quick Free versions available Lots of integrations: Chrome, Google Drive, Google Docs Addin, MS word Addin, Confluence. Allows sharing of diagrams to multiple collaborators. Not very expensive

Cons: Free version will make your diagrams public after 15 days. You have to pay desperately for each integration: e.g. a paid for confluence license won't equate Visio import has to be paid for. non-standard file format (JSON instead of GraphML)
