  • Easy to reverse engineer existing databases to bring them into the model or account for drift.
  • Intuitive interface for developers just starting out with the tool.
  • Large number of options on how to display a data model visually, which is critical when dealing with very large models.
  • 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.

  • Creation of logical data models
  • Reverse engineering
  • Excellent communication tool in conversations with Developers and BAs
  • As a company, Erwin provides lots of tutorials and how-tos.
  • The main con I can think of is cost.
  • It takes time to setup and learn which is an adoption barrier.

  • erwin Data Modeler helps generate deployment scripts for database deployments without the need to worry about programming syntax.
  • It helps you compare different models pretty easily and identify any discrepancies induced due to human error during deployment cycles.
  • I have a great experience of using erwin Data Modeler to generate database models straight out of database SQL file. This feature is called reverse engineering in erwin Data Modeler world.
  • erwin Data Modeler allows only 25 entities in a trial version. It really limits you when you want to try out the product before actually deciding to pay for licensing cost. It would be rather helpful if they limit the trial period by days instead.
  • The UI is pretty good but sometimes the large diagrams are hard to manage. A little improvement in that area would be helpful.

  • 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.
  • For large models, it gets tedious to print the diagram in a single pdf. I have to often make adjustment and if i use the fit model feature, it kind of changes the alignment of entities in my ER diagram. Erwin may let us make pdf of the model as is.
  • I have used reverse engineering using for Oracle schemas. It will be very good if it supports reverse engineering for more vendors, so i can use erwin data modeler for database conversion activities too.
