Ways to customize Sybase PowerDesigner – Introduction http://powerdesignerplus.com/powerdesigner-plus-blog/54-ways-to-customize-sybase-powerdesigner-introduction.html Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

As a PowerDesigner consultant, I have many opportunities to make suggestions to optimize PowerDesigner usage to increase efficiency, automate repetitive tasks, and enhance overall consistency.   Many can be easily implemented by changing or enhancing the way PowerDesigner behaves out of the box. 

My minimum goal is to list 100 distinctive, practical ways for you to customize PowerDesigner Studio Enterprise.  70 are already done -at least 30 more should be easy!

Suggestions are grouped by product modules.  As this will be a dynamic list, a master list will be maintained in the resources section titled Ways to Customize PowerDesigner.

Please add comments about questions, corrections, clarifications, details, additional ways to customize, and which ideas were helpful.

If you need help figuring out how customizing PowerDesigner could make your SDLC more efficient or to implement any of these ideas, then contact me here.

PowerDesigner 15 First Impressions http://powerdesignerplus.com/powerdesigner-plus-blog/53-powerdesigner-15-first-impressions.html The PowerDesigner 15 beta just ended last week.  This means we are getting close to the release of PD 15. I still have good friends in the PowerDesigner marketing, sales, engineering and support organizations so I have an unfair advantage when it comes to finding out what is coming next in the PowerDesigner product.  Most of you, I realize, do not have these kinds of contacts.  Even with these contacts I have found that the best way to get a head-start on new PowerDesigner versions is to get on the PowerDesigner Beta mailing list and participate.  For years I helped manage the beta process for PowerDesigner, but for the last 4 years it has been one of my primary methods for discovering PowerDesigner futures. Here are some of my arguments for joining the beta:

  • PowerDesigner has historically been extremely stable in beta releases - Few if any crashes.  I did not have any this beta cycle that I can blame on PD.
  • PowerDesigner releases play well with prior versions of the product.  I am currently running on one laptop PD 11, 12.5 and 15 and they do not step on each other.  The only caveat to this is you need to maintain different versions of your models.  I create folders for the different versions.
  • The process gives me an opportunity to provide feedback to Sybase.  Things not working, enhancement requests and usage aggravations.
  • The beta program is usually accompanied by supporting information like webcasts, testing guidelines and documentation
  • Newsgroup support specific to the beta release
  • I can choose how much time to invest in the new version.  If the new version has something I am particularly interested in, then I spend more time.  If not I at least can get an overview of new features.

When I start to review what is new in PowerDesigner 15 I am overwhelmed by exactly how much has been added in this version. Here is a summarized list of just the major areas of the product that have been enhanced.  I can not guarantee that all of these will make the final released version.

Techwave 2008 Impressions http://powerdesignerplus.com/powerdesigner-plus-blog/51-techwave-2008-impressions.html I was very pleased with Techwave 2008. I had an unfair advantage since due to my TeamSybase status it did not cost me anything to attend. My objectives for the week were, in no particular order:

  • Reconnect with PowerDesigner Product Management, Engineering and Support
  • Education, see if I could learn any new tricks
  • Network, get acquainted with potential customers and or Sybase people that might need my services for their customers
  • Receptions

Techwave 2008 Recap http://powerdesignerplus.com/powerdesigner-plus-blog/50-techwave-2008-recap.html Mandalay Bay Well I managed to spend a week in Las Vegas and not gamble once. To be honest Las Vegas is not my idea of a good time. I would rather take a hike in a National Park over Las Vegas any day. Anyway, we have been assured that next years TechWave will be on the East Coast, rumor has it that Washington D.C. might be an option. This years event was hosted at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

Techwave 2008 Day 1 http://powerdesignerplus.com/powerdesigner-plus-blog/49-sybase-techwave-2008-day1.html A few months ago Sybase decided to add me to the TeamSybase roster. Maybe I will tell that story someday, but for now I am a member of this elite establishment.

TeamSybase works by getting dedicated individuals to answer questions on the Sybase sponsored newsgroups. In return for this effort they are given, an expenses paid trip to Techwave, another expenses paid trip to the TeamSybase meeting, software licenses and schwaaag.

So this week I am attending Sybase Techwave.

Welcome http://powerdesignerplus.com/powerdesigner-plus-blog/44-powerdesignerplus-blog-welcome.html Welcome to the PowerDesignerPlus Blog.

Why would I want to build a PowerDesigner resources website and blog?

I am Jay Stevens. I worked for Sybase for 9 years, most of that in various roles supporting PowerDesigner. Back when Powersoft bought S-Designor, I was the first engineer to support this new data modeling product.
