CA Announces IBM's Use of AllFusion Erwin Data Modeler to Validate Data Modeling Techniques for Linux Environments on The eServer Z900 and S/390

Study Finds AllFusion Erwin to be an Effective DB2 UDB Data Modeling Product

for Mainframe Linux Implementations



Nov 29, 2001, 00:00 ET from Computer Associates International, Inc.

    ISLANDIA, N.Y., Nov. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Computer Associates International,
 Inc. (CA) today announced that IBM has used AllFusion Erwin Data Modeler to
 conduct a study and produce a white paper on data modeling techniques for
 Linux environments on IBM eServer z900 and S/390 hardware.
     According to the study, AllFusion Erwin Data Modeler, CA's
 industry-leading data modeling solution, is analyzed for reverse and forward
 engineering the DB2 Universal Database (UBD) for Linux running on the z900 and
 S/390 platforms.  The study was reported in a paper written by Eliuth Pomar of
 IBM's Poughkeepsie software development lab, with contributions from CA.
     AllFusion Erwin Data Modeler creates and maintains databases and data
 warehouses, as well as enterprise data resource models.  In addition, it can
 visualize data structures in order to help organize, manage, and even mitigate
 the complexities of data, database technologies, and the deployment
 environment.  "This study by IBM continues to underscore the leadership and
 strength of AllFusion Erwin Data Modeler as a cross-platform and cross-
 database modeling and design tool," said Gregory Clancy, brand manager,
 application life cycle management, CA.
     The paper, which complements IBM's existing DB2 UDB documentation,
 describes how to achieve a working environment between DB2 UDB and AllFusion
 Erwin products.  "This study concluded that Erwin Data Modeler is an effective
 data modeling product for DB2 UDB running on the Linux environment, on IBM's
 latest z900 and S/390 platforms," said Pomar.
     The study documented the success of AllFusion Erwin Data Modeler in
 reverse engineering a DB2 UDB database running on Linux for the eServer z900
 and S/390.  In addition, a database with referential integrity constraints was
 forward engineered to test consistencies between AllFusion Erwin Data Modeler
 and DB2 UDB on Linux for the z900 and S/390. Results of the tests indicated
 that AllFusion Erwin Data Modeler also successfully accomplished forward
 engineering of the database.
     The study, documented in the IBM paper entitled Linux/390 DB2 UDB and
 Erwin Case Study is available online at:
