What is most valuable?

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I previously used Erwin and I switched because PowerDesigner is a more powerful tool. PowerDesigner is more powerful than Erwin in many ways, but to highlight one, the capability mentioned about the Data Modeling is non-existent on Erwin and in my opinion, it is very important.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No other options were evaluated.
