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)

Do you want to write a book on data modelling and XML?

Steve Hoberman is looking for an author or budding author, to write a book on the subject of data modelling and XML. This could include topics such as how to reverse engineer an XML schema into a Logical or Conceptual data model, maybe even a UML class model.

If you’re an experienced XML or messaging architect and you like the sound of a collaboration, please contact me. I have some ideas of my own for such a book. A key subject would have to be the steps you go through to convert a ‘logical’ view of data into a set of hierarchical schemas.
