Now it's gone.I think that collaboration can be better.It should be made Windows compatible.The reporting needs improvement.Weak in regards to data modelling. No logical or physical modelling or migration from conceptual to physical.Insufficient control of metadata and standards.No way to implement data integrity and referential integrity constraints.
