Overall Satisfaction with ER/Studio
ER/Studio is one of the best data modeling tools available in the market. We use it in most of our projects to develop logical and physical data models. ER/Studio comes with a bunch of inbuilt macros and also we can create our own. Macros aid in maintaining consistency with naming standards across the data models, creating indexes etc. Also, ER/Studio doesn't need a lot of prior training to use the tool. The tool is very user friendly, easy to use and very efficient.
- Creating macros.
- Being able to merge the new DDLs to the existing database tables and make selection of only those you want to overwrite/merge/add.
- Easy to convert from logical to physical.
- ER/Studio has had a positive impact on my project as we can develop the data model and have a clear understanding of business needs before we continue with the development phase.
ER/Studio is effective and serves the purpose of data modeling that we need in our project, so we chose it.
