ERwin Times July 2012

We’ve had little to report over the last couple of months, but we’re back with a vengeance with news of the next major ERwin release, together with what we’ve been up to, tips, videos and a case study.

Don’t forget that you can benefit from direct input from our experts using our Training and Mentoring Services.

The latest releases of ERwin are r7.3.11 and r8.2.03.  Active maintenance entitles users to a free upgrade to either version.  Contact us for more information.
