The free version of the Financial Industry Business Data Model has been downloaded many times – it’s managed using the SAP PowerDesigner modelling tool, and users of other data modelling tools need to import the PowerDesigner Logical Data Model that is supplied. There are two concerns here:
- FIB-DM is a very big model with some deep super/subtype hierarchies
- even if your tool can import a PowerDesigner model, the chances are that the import doesn’t work perfectly
If your tool of choice is Idera ER/Studio Data Architect, you can use the built-in metadata import feature to import the PowerDesigner model, but I know that you won’t be happy with the result, so I’ve converted the model for you.
Watch this very short video to take a look at the model, or click here to download the model or just find out more about it.
