Now I’m back in the #PowerDesigner world, I’ve started adding my presentations to my blog

Last October I posted a link to the presentation that I gave at data Modelling Zone in Dusseldorf last year – it’s been uploaded to SlideShare, and several people have told me they’re not allowed to access SlideShare at work, asking me to post it on my blog instead.

I should have done this before – no excuses, though I could say it’s because I had a spell where I was fully-employed to do something other than talk about PowerDesigner up to last week. Anyway, I’ve added a new section to my blog – look for ‘Papers’ at the top of the screen, or click here – https://metadatajunkie.wordpress.com/papers/. It works when I try it, so tell me if it doesn’t work for you.

My #PowerDesigner book is on special offer – save $30 or $35

The print edition has been reduced by $30, and the PDF edition has been reduced by $35.

The book was written for PowerDesigner 16.0 – we’re now on 16.7 but it’s still fundamentally the same product, so you can be confident that the book is still both reliable and relevant!

I do like adding narration to my #PowerDesigner online training – it helps to have the right equipment :)

Today I had to re-record part of my first online PowerDesigner training course, and then decided to re-record the narration for one slide – it really helps when you have the right software and equipment (once you’ve figured out how to use them, of course).

#LinkedIn is a really useful tool, so why don’t people use it better?

Don’t you find that some people just don’t know how to use Linked In properly? Here’s an example – this morning someone from a company selling Data Quality software sent me this Linked In message:

I’m writing this email to introduce our innovative Data Quality Software products that help you maintain clean and accurate data and also helps you to comply with the GDPR & CCPA acts.
The capabilities of our products are:
• DQAM and DQRM: Analyze, track, and resolve your data quality issues
• SDD: Discovers & protects sensitive data of your business and avoids hefty fines imposed by the applicable privacy laws.
Explore more capabilities of our products @ https://usmsystems.com/data-quality-solutions/.
I would like to explore more benefits that exist with our data quality products. Please let us know your availability for a quick intro call

What a complete waste of their time and mine – why didn’t they spend 5 seconds on linked In, just to see how many employees my company has? A company with one employee is not going to buy Data Quality software!
