Let me begin this newsletter with an apology. Last month we said that r8.2 of ERwin would be released November 1st. A late change meant that we were as surprised as you were when CA announced that the release was being postponed until February 2012.
There is now just one week left until the Sandhill ERwin UK User Conference. If you haven’t already booked your place, I would urge you to do so now!
No Data Warehouse Corner this month, but we have an extra T&T to compensate.
The latest releases of ERwin are r7.3.11 and r8.1. Active maintenance entitles users to a free upgrade to either version. Contact us for more information.
If you haven’t yet made the move from r7 to r8, why not take a look at our r8 Conversion Course.
