Sybase Wins Momentum for PowerDesigner Enterprise Architecture Tool

PowerDesigner’s “Link and Sync” technology enables companies to respond to business and competitive changes

Sybase announced continued momentum for the latest version of its PowerDesigner Enterprise Architecture modeling tool with the addition of new customers from many industries across the globe. Educational Testing Services (ETS), La Poste mail service of Belgium and Osthus consulting in Germany have selected the PowerDesigner enterprise modeling tool to implement an enterprise architecture that supplies their organizations powerful analysis, design and metadata management techniques. The new PowerDesigner solution, introduced in September 2008, supports enterprise architecture implementation with its Link and Sync technology, allowing users to align IT systems with business requirements, respond to competitive changes in a more agile way and achieve regulatory compliance and standards.

Today's enterprises are looking for a tool that simplifies communication between business and IT. PowerDesigner 15 supports Enterprise Architecture implementation from business goals through implementation, thus removing the silos, increasing the alignment and improving business agility in order to respond to changes in economics, technology, competition and regulations.

"Business strategists, planners and analysts can derive considerable benefit from an EA tool, because it helps them to better understand the complex system of IT resources and its support of the business," writes Greta James, research vice president of Gartner.

"Our customers are demonstrating the benefits of using PowerDesigner for implementing Enterprise Architectures because they can quickly document all their data, systems and applications and effectively manage change," said David Dichmann, Sr. Product Manager at Sybase. "Through our unique Link and Sync technology, silos are removed, communication is streamlined and business and IT alignment is a natural, holistic effort. Never underestimate the value of effective tooling for implementing an Enterprise Architecture."
