WEBINAR: Make Your Data Models More Manageable - February 19

How big is your data model? Are you working with very large data models that include complex entity relationships across multiple business units? Sub-models can help you to organize those models, by aligning sections of your data model to specific business functions or organizational structures, with synchronization back to the main model. In this session, Rob Loranger will show you:

  • How to decompose a model into multiple layers using nested sub-models
  • Display options by role or business unit
  • Entity/attribute traceability through Where Used and Universal Mappings

WEBINAR: Make the Switch to ER/Studio – Discover the Difference!

Before joining Embarcadero’s Product Management team, Ron Huizenga worked as an independent consultant for 20 years.

  • How your ERwin experience gives you the fast-track on learning the ER/Studio user interface
  • How ER/Studio performs some operations differently and why it’s beneficial
  • How easily and accurately ERwin models can be imported into ER/Studio
