Strategy, Design, SAP, Engagement Profiles
Intertech has been involved with the SAP PowerDesigner tool for nearly 25 years. The following news release summarizes our involvement with the product during this time. Our deep involvement with the product and our exposure to SAP and Sybase's largest customers gives us unparalleled insight into the proper use of PowerDesigner.
Intertech designed and developed or substantially revised the three primary PowerDesigner classes that SAP offers:
Data Modeling with PowerDesigner
Object-Oriented Modeling with PowerDesigner
Business Process Modeling with PowerDesigner.
These three courses have been taught by Sybase and Intertech staff nationwide and still comprise the backbone of SAP’s offerings in the product.
Intertech developed the Mastering QDesigner Workshop for Quest Software, which resold PowerDesigner as QDesigner for approximately three years (2004-2006).
Authored an ISUG Technical Journal cover article Creating Model-Driven Applications for EAServer 5.2 Using PowerDesigner 11.
Co-authored a Competitive Analysis of ERWin 7.1 vs PowerDesigner 12.1
Co-authored PowerDesigner vs. Rational Rose with Alice McKernon
Presented the popular workshop Best Practices in Object-Oriented Modeling at Sybase TechWave from 2002-2006
Performed numerous PowerDesigner and QDesigner adoption engagements throughout North America. Consulted to Sybase IAD as a pre-sales technical consultant for 18 months, interacting with approximately 50 companies during that time. Consulted on all aspects of PowerDesigner during that time. Concurrently served as Quest Software’s Consulting Engineer for QDesigner.
Engagements included PowerDesigner adoption and knowledge transfer strategies, and ERWin, Oracle Designer 2000, Visio, and Rational Rose to PowerDesigner migrations.
Used PowerDesigner in some capacity on numerous Intertech Consulting, Inc. client engagements. As that work was not specifically PowerDesigner consulting services, those companies are not listed below.
