    BizNet Software

    My favorite part is using if for analytical review reports, especially budget to actual reviews. I can make changes to the GL based on issues found during the review and the report updates immediately without having to update, re-key, verify changes, etc. I know it is going to be updated and correct every time.

    I have had a chance to use few other data modeling tools from Quest and Oracle, but I am most comfortable using erwin Data Modeler. They understand your data modeling needs and have designed the software to give you a feeling of completeness when you are designing a data model.

    Pros

    BizNet Software

    • Once a worksheet has been created, you can change a single cell and update the entire report. This makes it much easier than recreating a report every time you start.
    • It draws data directly from our database that can be filtered down in various ways. This allows us to get the data that we really need quicker.

    Quest Software

    • Reverse Engineering: I love the way we can import an SQL file containing schema meta data and generate ER diagram out of it. This is specifically useful if you are implementing erwin Data Modeler for an existing database.
    • Forward Engineering: We use this feature very frequently. Where we do database changes in our physical and logical data models and then generate deployment scripts for the changes made.
    • Physical vs Logical Models: I like to have my database model split into physical and logical models and at the same time still linked to each other. Any changes you make to logical model or physical model shows up in the other.

    Cons

    BizNet Software

    • Access to comprehensive training for new users is lacking. While the pay-based BizNet University has some useful videos it doesn't allow for other learning styles.
    • Having to create a separate OCBC data source and linked server for each arm of business opened is sometimes a hassle.

    Quest Software

    • Cost is the single largest barrier to entry with this tool.
    • Would like to see a greater variety of export options available for use outside of the tool, for example as a vector graphic.
    • Support has been uneven at times.

      Lack of communication from BizNet on new policies with the resellers, changes in the policies that affect the client aren't positive in my opinion

      Quest Software

      I had a lot of experience using erwin Data Modeler for designing data models. I think it's pretty intuitive and easy to use. It has enough features to represent your database requirements in form of a model.

      We have only had a few occasions to call on the support team over 4 years, but every time our need was met in a superior manner.

      Quest Software

      CA customer support and our account manager have been able to support us with any issues that we have had, from managing our serial keys to issues we logged tickets to resolve. There are aspects of key management that have made it difficult over the years but support usually has worked with us.

      We went pretty seamlessly into BizNet, but could have had lots of trouble if the professional service was not aware of our set up and use.

      Alternatives Considered

      BizNet Software

      FRX - Great Plains Report Writer - These do produce financial reports but are much more tedious to set up. BizNet is much more flexible and easier to use. The functionality is an Excel add-on which allows us to use the powerful functionality of Excel as well as Biznet's functionality to do data retrieval from Sage 100 general ledger.

      Quest Software

      Not listed, but I've only used alternatives built into something like the Squirrel SQL editor. That one is semi-functional but lacking many features and, in some instances, just plain wrong. The only pro there is that it's freely available and works over ODBC. I've tried some of the other free ones like Creately but didn't have much success.

      Return on Investment

      BizNet Software

      • BizNet continues to pay for itself.
      • I am sure we haven't even learned to use half of what it is capable of and their customer service is top notch.
      • I would say that BizNet continues to have a positive impact on our entire financial portion of our business.

      Quest Software

      • It is difficult to assign a monetary value to it. The initial learning curve was fairly long.
      • It allows us to have better support documentation.
      • It allows ease of communications between functional units.
