It offers a lot of features in one solution. You would have to get multiple other products to bundle together all of the capabilities that you get in just this product.

The most valuable feature is the way you can extend it and customize it. With most modeling tools, you fit your modeling process to fit the tool. In PowerDesigner, you can make the tool fit the way you want to work.

I do a data-centric design, so for me, the data analysis and design tools are the most valuable features.

Pricing for small consultancies needs improvement. They sustain prices to competing tools. The competing tools tend to do special offers. PowerDesigner SAP doesn't pay much attention to the pricing of it and there are no special offers.

Checking-in models to the repository, especially when working remotely, is a slow process than can sometimes have problems with models being corrupted.

In the future, I would like to see data manipulation capability where you can actually write SQL queries and manipulate data from directly within the tool.

It would be helpful if there were glossary, catalog and governance tools. It would help make it a true end-to-end product.

Senior Data Architect at ManuLife Financial
I have found the solution not easy to use. When publishing you have to download the HTML, make adjustments against the updated HTML, convert it to HTML, then finally paste the HTML. There is not an on-the-fly function available to bypass the step-by-step converting process that other solutions have.
