Collaborative Modeling for TeamsThe Datanamic Repository is a free central repository database to store your data models. It is designed for collaborative modeling for teams of data modelers who work with the DeZign for Databases software to model and design their databases.
The Datanamic Repository technique allows more than one user to work with the same data model. The data model/project file is stored in the repository database and every developer working with the DeZign for Databases Teamwork Edition can work on the project individually. Later changes can be committed to the repository database and shared with the team. The repository works much like the source code version control system with conflict resolution and automatic merging.
The Datanamic repository database can be hosted on the following platforms:
- MS SQL Server
- PostgreSQL (coming soon)
For evaluation purposes, a flat file repository database is included with all editions of DeZign for Databases.
You can add an unlimited number of users and projects/data models to the repository. You can manage these users and projects with the Datanamic Repository Administrator. This is a free utility.
Summarized: For collaborative modeling for teams you need:
- A DeZign for Databases Teamwork Edition license for each team member.
>>Download a trial version of DeZign for Databases.
- A repository database on a server (hosted on Oracle or MySQL, or MS SQL, or ...)
>>Download the SQL scripts to create the repository database.
- A utility to create users, set permissions etc. That utility is called the Datanamic Repository Administrator.
>>Download the Datanamic Repository Administrator.
Sounds interesting? Want to try it out?Two options:
2) If you are already using a DeZign for Databases Standard, Professional or Expert edition and/or you don't want to create a repository database for evaluation only, then you can see how it works with the "Standard repository for evaluation" (see screenshot).
