Quest Software
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.

The payment card industry is best as it has built-in PCI DSS compliant and in a transactional DB where there are a lot of DML activities the size of the database must be increased.

Pros
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
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.

  • Should have a compression algorithm to compress the audited logs, as it will take a lot of space.
  • Can not audit all the DML and DDL activities as it will take a lot of space, should have a compression algo.

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.

Support Rating
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.

Alternatives Considered
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.

More easy to use, no SQL queries to extract data out of it, graphical user interface is very good and easy to use.

Return on Investment
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.

  • Audit reports are a hectic job for a DBA it made them easy.
