Upgrades

For clients upgrading their erwin Data Modeler environment, experience has shown that because of changes in the underlying meta models, certain components may not transition to the new model as expected. This may result in inconsistencies between the old model and upgraded models. These differences which in part may be due to bad modeling practices, corruption in original models or a host of other reasons can cause potential loss of information, integrity and confidence in the new data model

Sandhill’s erwin Model Audit Program in conjunction with our upgrade service, will check the original model against the upgraded model and report on any missing or changed entities / tables, attributes / columns, key groups / indexes, relationships, key group / index members, subject areas, subject area members etc.
