Very good repository features.The most valuable feature is that it is a very fast reverse engineering process. It does a very expansive comparison.I like the property sheet capability and the user-defined attributes that you can set up.The most valuable feature is the way you can extend it 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.I do a data-centric design, so for me, the data analysis and design tools are the most valuable features.The solution is a very pragmatic tool. It's quite easy to use.It can automate many routine tasks and save human resources to focus on real problems.This solution has good tools for big data, where you can manage large and complex databases.

UI could be improved by enabling simpler navigation.In terms of improvement, the pricing is a bit high.Checking-in models to the repository, especially when working remotely, is a slow process than can sometimes have problems with models being corrupted.Pricing for small consultancies needs improvement. They sustain prices to competing tools. The competing tools tend to do special offers. PowerDesigner SAP doesn't pay much attention to the pricing of it and there are no special offers.In the future, I would like to see data manipulation capability where you can actually write SQL queries and manipulate data from directly within the tool.It would be helpful if there were glossary, catalog and governance tools. It would help make it a true end-to-end product.There should be a better usage of current hardware including multicore CPUs, higher resolutions, and multiple displays.This product does not have a good BPMN Modeler.
