When your company requires data modeling, there are several options to choose from. The three market-leading products are ER/Studio (from Embarcadero), ERwin (from CA) and PowerDesigner (from Sybase). All three will allow a modeler to create data models, reverse engineer databases, document database systems, create basic reports and create/modify diagrams in a Windows-standard manner. If an organization needs to create a database one time, generate the script to build it and never modify it again, then the best choice would be the least expensive of the three products. However, it is rare that an organization needs to create one database and leave it alone. As a business' needs get more complex, the products reviewed in this paper quickly diverge. There is one clear leader amongst them. That leading data modeling tool is clearly PowerDesigner.

In this paper you will learn all the factors you need to consider when choosing a data modeling tool. You will learn about the different model types and how each tool measures up to the demanding needs of your company today and in the future. This paper will lay out all the information you need to make a clear decision on what data modeling tool you should invest in.

Read this paper today to learn about the three market-leading data modeling tools and how they stack up against each other.
