  • The Unwired Enterprise is an information management strategy. In this session, we’ll be discussing this (POINT OUT YOUR PRODUCT OR SOLUTION AREA) section of Sybase’s Unwired Enterprise solution.
  • Sybase® Workspace framework and tools. To build an Unwired Enterprise, you need to do three things: End-to-end development Leverage and work with other open source components in Eclipse Integrate with full PowerDesigner release in Eclipse (Enterprise Modeling piece) Here is where we should talk about the overall architecture, how Workspace ties all of this functionality together into a single unified environment. Also, using Eclipse allows us to leverage open source components as well, for lower total cost of ownership.
  • To best understand what PowerDesigner offers, we use an analogy to Architecture. The question we ask is “Would you build a house withut a blueprint?” – the answer is obviously no. Looking at the pictures below, we also recognize that the design of an office space, a house, an addition to a home, whatever we are building, has multiple views. This example shows office space in both a “Business”-centric 3-Dimensional representation that everyone can understand, and the more technical definition that the contractors, plumbers, electricians, and so forth can understand. What gets interesting is – what if the contractor notices that by narrowing a 13-foot span to a 12-foot span, we can use a standard length beam in the project, and save $12,000 on the total cost of construction. What is the right BUSINESS decision to make here? Maybe I need the extra space and the smaller room will not fit my equipment properly – but on the other hand, if we can spare the space, the cost savings is significant. To make the correct business decision, I need to re-create the 3-Dimensional image so that we can validate the change is still consistent with our overall goals, and then make the decision – invest $12,000 because we need the space, or save $12,000 – the space is not critical and savings are more important.
  • To illustrate the effects of Iterative Analysis, Design and Development, we have built this chart that compares the typical cost of making a change throughout the development lifecycle with the cost associated with a highly iterative analysis and design cycle. If we follow the top line, representing the Traditional methods, we see that a change introduced at the Analysis level is relatively inexpensive to make, but as we move along through Design, Development, Testing and finally Deployment, we see the costs starting to exponentially rise. The lower line represents PowerDesigner’s ability to easily communicate changes made in any mode as change requests to any other model from any other user. With this, we can streamline the impact of change in such a way that changes discovered throughout the design, development and testing phases are relatively equal in cost, and much lower than traditional methods. Having a highly iterative cycle incorporating multiple small changes keeps projects relevant to a constantly changing set of user requirements.
  • So, nowadays, we see three different segments in the modeling (or design) market space: Data Modeling : this is where it all started, with modeling techniques like Entity/Relationship (this explains E/R) created by James Martin, famous for a methodology called James Martin Information Engineering UML modeling : James Martin Information Engineering was and still is very effective for database modeling, but was weak for application logic modeling. UML – Unified Modeling Language – although a generic notation, has proven its capabilities in recent years especially in the area of application/business logic modeling, especially because, if properly implemented, it allows automatic code skeleton generation and roundtrip engineering Business Process Modeling : BP Mo d eling has been around for a while, especially within Business Process Re-engineering companies. We have seen growing interest in BP modeling during recent years, mostly because of the new opportunities that the Internet brings to businesses. The Internet basically empowers enterprise to integrate – at information system level – with their customers and partners. In order to leverage these new opportunities, you do need 1) to understand your business process, 2) understand your customers / partners business processes and 3) design the interaction. BP modeling is a great tool for this.
  • Now, let’s look into what PowerDesigner offers. First, this is the history of PowerDesigner. We started in 1989, so we have been in the design tools business for a number of year, and we do believe we have accumulated a lot of knowledge in order to be capable of delivering the best solutions. The second interesting point in this slide is that we have been following standards adoption, E/R, UML, datawarehouse, and recently new emerging technologies for BP modeling. Lastly, please note that in 1996, we realized we had a 9 years old product. At the same time, new modeling techniques like UML where emerging and the need for enterprise repository was becoming more clear. We decided to re-architecture the product and came out in 1999 with version 7.0, a complete new rewrite of the code. We have added more and more features since, but, although we are at version 9.5, we still have a pretty young code line.
