Looking for recommendations for an online #training #platform #Dataversity #Udemy

I want to convert my existing software training courses into online training, which is straightforward enough (though it will take some time, as I’m picky about the quality of what I deliver). There are some obvious platforms I could use:

  • Dataversity – well-known to many of us in Information Management for their conferences and webinars, and they host online training as well
  • Udemy – hosts a multitude of training courses on a multitude of topics. They have a lot of very useful guidance for building courses

If anyone can recommend another platform, I’d be grateful. Here’s what I’d like it to do for me:

  • handle payments for me
  • support a subscription model
    • allowing someone access to all my training (or specified courses) for a period, perhaps a month, a year, or longer
  • allow customers to download resources, such as the model output from a session
  • quizzes
  • certification paths – e.g. do courses 1 to 4 and get a certificate
  • bundling multiple courses for a discount
  • support a mixture of technologies
    • PowerPoint
    • Videos

There’s probably some more, but that’ll do for now.

“#PowerDesigner Fundamentals for Data Architects” at Data Modelling Zone EU 2018 #DMZone

Are you thinking of attending Data Modelling Zone in Düsseldorf in September 2018?

  • Are you an experienced data architect, new to SAP PowerDesigner?
  • Have you used SAP PowerDesigner in the past, and need bringing up to date?
  • Are you currently using SAP PowerDesigner, but never had any training?
  • Are you evaluating SAP PowerDesigner?

– then –

This session is for you!

Join the author of Data Modelling Made Simple with PowerDesigner, and learn the Fundamental techniques you need to get the best out of SAP PowerDesigner.

The program hasn’t been announced yet, so watch the conference web site for announcements.

 

 

#PowerDesigner and #ERStudio pages – all completely refressshhhed on my blog – details of all training courses now available, and more on the way

I’ve finally updated my blog with more information about the services provided for both SAP PowerDesigner and Idera ER/Studio – click here for more

Any #PowerDesigner newbies (in UK?) want some help for free?

If you or your friends / colleagues are new to PowerDesigner, no matter what you’re using it for, there is bound to be something that you’re not sure of the best way of doing, like including existing relationships on a diagram, or preventing the creation of graphical synonyms. Most data modelling tools don’t support graphical synonyms, so you may say “What the Heck?” to yourself when you first see them (they’re the symbols with numbers after the names – there are three symbols here for the SalesOrders table, all linking to the same definition):

Graphical Synonyms - PDM

Anyway, I’d love to know what knowledge is the most useful to PowerDesigner newbies, so here’s my offer:

  • one day of my time FOR FREE to help your newbies with their questions, as long as you don’t mind me documenting those questions

I’m based in Southern England, so there’s an obvious caveat here – I need to be able to travel to your site and back in a day.

If you’re interested, send me a message.

By the way, I’ve just updated my blog post on the topic of including existing relationships on a diagram.
