SAP PowerDesigner Valuable Features

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 »

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 »

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.
