Embarcadero Technologies Eases Data Modeling with Templates
Data modeling templates are one way database administrators can stop reinventing the wheel.Embarcadero Technologies is selling data modeling templates for its ER/Studio product as a way for database administrators to be able to stop reinventing the wheel every time the need for data modeling or data warehouse design comes up. Dubbed Universal Data Models, the templates are off-the-shelf data model designs for nine common subject areas and seven verticals.
