Today Sybase has announced the release of PowerDesigner 15, its modeling and design tool for use in streamlining data and business processes across the organization. Getting its origin as a data modeling tool, PowerDesigner has become a tool designed to increase enterprise architecture agility. Although not fully related to BI, PowerDesigner has the ability to build the metadata layer and integrate data modeling with process flows to bring together different resources across the organization and increase alignment between data management and process management. This helps increase the ability of organizations to manage their data enterprise wide as opposed to within various silos across the organization. Some new features include -

- a new layer of metadata

- tools to implement framework with tools - i.e. Zachman

- traceable visual impact analysis using diagrams

- Web-based repository that resides in a browser

- the ability to import Visio information into diagrams

- improvement of data flow models

- support of all major databases
