Power*Architect Publisher's description
from SQL Power
The Power*Architect is an innovative Java-based data modeling tool geared specifically for Data Warehouse and Data Mart design.
Data Architects, DBA's, Analysts and Designers rely on Data Modeling tools to facilitate and simplify their data Modeling efforts, while maximizing the use of their resources. The Power*Architect allows these busy highly technical resources to perform this most intricate part of their job in a fraction of the time.
Power*Architect project is an innovative Java-based data modeling tool geared specifically for Data Warehouse and Data Mart design. It allows the designer to open multiple concurrent source Database connections, create and explore profiles of the source data, drag and drop source schemas, tables and columns into the data modeling playpen, and forward engineer the resultant target database and its associated ETL template.
Here are some key features of "Power Architect":
??? Access any JDBC or ODBC accessible source database
??? Quickly create profiles of source data, including information about the size of the data in each column, maximum and minimum values, frequency distribution of values in a column, and more.
??? Profile information is saved with the project, so profile data can still be used to aid off-site design sessions when it is not possible to access the source databases.
??? Design the target database Data Model (Data Warehouse)
??? Compare the database structure of any two databases highlighting the structural differences and generating the required DDL to synchronize
??? Compare the Data Model data structures to an existing target database
??? Save a snapshot of all source systems' data structures in the project file, allowing data warehouse designers to evolve their target data model remotely
??? Forward engineer to Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, and PostgreSQL and more.
??? Forward engineer ETL Templates containing source-to-target data mappings
??? Invoke ETL Engine to load initial set of data into the target database
??? Enable easy centralized installation and updates to many end users (Supports Java WebStart technology).
??? The Power*Architect can open multiple
