Carel Van Der Merwe says in a SAP PowerDesigner review
CEO at Abellard
I do a data-centric design, so for me, the data analysis and design tools are the most valuable features. The interface is user-friendly. Because of the graphic nature of it, it helps you to be able to manage complicated systems much easier. View full review »

The most valuable feature is the ability to extend and customize it. With most modeling tools, you fit your modeling process to fit the tool. In PowerDesigner, you can make the tool fit the way you want to work. View full review »

Team leader and Data / Information Architect at a tech services company with 201-500 employees
The generational DDLs and the graphics are the solution's most valuable aspects. The solution is a very pragmatic tool. It's quite easy to use. The solution is very good for data modeling on a conceptual and physical level. There are a lot of design tools that are very complicated to use, and customers will not use them in detail. I find the solution to be one of the best tools in the range. View full review »

Senior Consultant at Mibcon DIMA
The most valuable features are its user-friendly extensibility, impact & lineage analysis, and source/target mappings. It can be configured to display only relevant objects across all models, of any type. It has a public meta-model and the ability to automate many features so that the users can focus on what really matters, as opposed to the formal requirements of the modeling work. View full review »

Founder at Rozhmaan
The most valuable feature is that we can convert CDM (Conceptual Data Model) to PDM (Physical Data Model), and then prepare an SQL statement to be executed. It has a powerful engineering feature where if you change the data on a secure server then it will change it in PowerDesigner, too. This solution has good tools for big data, where you can manage large and complex databases. By comparison, tools such as Enterprise Architect and Visio have problems with big databases.
