Available for Preview: Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler 3.3

Now available for preview as well as on an early adopter basis, the latest release of Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler can significantly boost designer and architect productivity by encouraging greater participation with business users in the design process.

About Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler
Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler is a free, standalone product with a full spectrum of data and database modeling tools and utilities, including modeling for entity relationship diagrams, relational database design, data type, and multidimensional modeling. It also includes full forward- and reverse-engineering and data definition language code generation.

Enhanced Search Combats Information Overload
When managing data models, database administrators (DBAs) must wade through ever-larger quantities of data and metadata. To make this task easier, Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler 3.3 includes significantly enhanced search technology that mimics Web browsers—including support for normal search terms as well as regular expressions.

As a result, DBAs can quickly leverage search results to generate reports and make quick changes to models directly from search results.

Engaging Business Users in the Design Process
Too often, nontechnical business owners have been shut out of the database design process, resulting in designs that don't always match actual business needs. Now, Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler 3.3 changes the equation with a tool that allows a data architect to export metadata to Microsoft Excel and share it with business users.

"The ability to export and import model metadata to Excel will be very helpful for working with the business users, says early adopter and Oracle ACE Director, Kent Graziano, senior architect, Data Warrior. "Using this new feature we can easily extract entity and attribute definitions for the users to edit [in a familiar format]. They send it back to us, and then we upload it into the model to eventually become table and column comments in the database. It should save us a few round trips of transcribing, editing, and getting sign off on the definitions."
