New version of PowerDesigner

Sybase's soon-to-be-released update of PowerDesigner includes enterprise architecture support

Sybase will release the newest version of its PowerDesigner modeling and design software next month. The recently released version 15 supports enterprise architecture (EA) designs. Users can capture all information pertinent to EA models, as well as view the individual models and support domain-specific EA frameworks, such as the Defense Department's Defense Architecture Framework.

"A large number of the organizations we're talking to are looking at architecting," said David Dichmann, Sybase senior product manager for design tools. In addition to these EA capabilities, it will also allow users to import Microsoft Visio diagrams.
