I’m looking forward to my 2 hours talking to UKSUG about #PowerDesigner next week

Discover the history and key capabilities of SAP PowerDesigner (it’s more than just a data modelling tool), and how it can make life easier for you in Data Governance and Database Development.
This session will show you why you must not use Excel or Visio for data modelling, and find out just how easy it is to get started with PowerDesigner.
Also discover the hidden power of PowerDesigner’s unique customisation capabilities, such as automating the creation of audit tables.

Wednesday June 10th, from 13:00 to 15:00 British Summer Time

(12:00 to 14:00 GMT)
