PowerDesigner removes the silos that block the easy flow of knowledge throughout the architecture of the enterprise, empowering enterprise architects to move from responding to business directives to assisting in setting business strategy.

“Today, organizations are increasingly focused on leveraging the power of enterprise architecture for business transformations such as enterprise application rationalization, technology standardization, and improved business-IT alignment,” said David Dichmann, Senior Product Manager, Sybase® PowerDesigner. “This relationship with Troux will enable organizations to better bridge the gap between enterprise transformation planning and the implementation of those plans.”
