Welcome and thank you for your continued support.
This edition brings news of yet another release of ERwin Data Modeler, release 8.2.
As winter approaches, so does the Sandhill ERwin UK User Conference. Speakers are now booked for the event to be held on Thursday, December 8th, but we rely on you to bring your own views to the event, so book your place while there are still some left.
For the technically minded, we have the usual Tips & Tricks and Data Warehouse Corner. Don’t forget that you can benefit from direct input from our experts using our Training and Mentoring Services.
