Re:Re: IDMS Visual DBA

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Mar 31, 2010
I beta tested Visual DBA release 17 (after already having IDMS release
17 in production) - i think it is a useful tool, especially for those
accustomed to a GUI environment of managing a database. Do I use it? NO
- i am simply too much of an old dog to learn and use new tricks - could
I use it in a pinch? yes - but i am just to accustomed and comfortable
with the 3270-format command environment. but i think it is a GREAT tool
for IDMS DBA: the next generation

Good Morning All,

Has anyone used IDMS Visual DBA? What was your experience with it? Do you find it useful? I have just install Rel. 17 and was thinking about installing the new release of IDMS Visual DBA. I have not used its prior version. I have used Oracle's Enterprise Studio when I was working with Oracle 9I. Thanks for you insight.

Re: Convert IDMS DDL to Relational DDL
"Thanks Gary. We are very familiar with ERWin, but that does not support IDMS either, and we just did a big migration from that to PowerDesigner because of its limitations.
