Hi,

It seems we can’t acquire a license of PowerDesigner Enterprise Architect (PowerAMC Architecture d’Entreprise) with a Standalone license – User


This is the answer of Hubert, Kirsten  SAP Canada

Effective August 18, 2014

Database Tools

SAP PowerDesigner, enterprise edition for data architects/data modeling option

  • User license

SAP PowerDesigner, enterprise edition for data architects/data modeling with enterprise repository option

  • Concurrent session license

SAP PowerDesigner Information Architect

  • Concurrent session license

SAP PowerDesigner Enterprise Architect

  • Concurrent session license

SAP PowerAMC Données Basic

  • User license

SAP PowerAMC Données Basic avec referential

  • Concurrent session license

SAP PowerAMC Information Studio

  • Concurrent session license

SAP PowerAMC Architecture d’Entreprise, Standard edition

  • Concurrent session license

**************************************

What should we do if we wish to work with our own tool as consulting people?

Actually I have to work on my clients sites with their licenses.

On the other hand, SAP vendors and partners say it’s :

  1. very complicated to understand that there is a French and an English version of the SAP modeling product PowerDesigner / PowerAMC.
  2. very difficult to understand the subtlety in titles : PowerDesigner enterprise edition vs PowerDesigner Enterprise Architect. You must be a specialist (Leaderboard) to understand. The SAP rep. do not understand. The difference between the titles of these two editions is far too subtle.

As you know the SAP company is much greater of Sybase and it seems that it’s not in their habits to have a product with two designations. Do you think have in the future only one product (name) where we can select the work language of the product? In SP05 SAP has introduced many languages for the Portal.


Why SAP does not display the product numbers to facilitate trade over the Web and brochure (Authorized Reseller Product List)… Yes I know Excel sheet….

Why we do not find a list of all editions in the sap store?

What can we do if we want acquire a standalone license of PowerAMC Architecture d’Entreprise ?

*****************************************************************

Note :


On December 9, 2015 the SAP Store miss the description and the price about these editions :

  • SAP PowerAMC Architecture d’Entreprise, (USER)
  • SAP PowerAMC Architecture d’Entreprise, Standard Edition (USER)
  • SAP PowerAMC Information Studio (USER)
  • SAP PowerDesigner InformationArchitect (USER)
  • SAP PowerDesigner EnterpriseArchitect, Standard Edition (USER)
  • SAP PowerDesigner EnterpriseArchitect (USER)
  • SAP PowerDesigner DataArchitect/RE (USER)
  • SAP PowerDesigner DataArchitect/DM (USER)

When we search for PowerDesigner term – The following product PowerAMC is displayed…but not all others editions of PowerAMC

  • SAP PowerAMC Données Basic avec référentiel (Concurrent Session)

Maybe SAP should displayed all PowerAMC AND PowerDesigner editions when we search for PowerDesigner and do the same thing when we search for PowerAMC ? Or displayed only products related to the search term wrote by the client.


New : On February 2015 SAP withdrew PowerAMC / PowerDesigner products in the list of products we can acquire via the SAP Store. The only product/service displayed when we enter PowerDesigner term are SAFYR and Dobler Consulting Service Offer

Andrew from SAP said the part number 7014569-ZSS for “POWERAMC ARCHITECTURE D’ENTREPRISE 16.5 AVEC RÉFÉRENTIEL – STANDALONE SEAT – STANDARD EDITION that you told me over the phone is correct. To purchase the product and receive information about pricing you will need to contact a software reseller.”

“Thank you to contact SAP. The PowerDesigner / PowerAMC product is now available only from authorized reselers.

Please go to cdw.ca reseler to have more informations.”

Mark Vinet, SAP North America


What I found….on cdw.ca web site…PowerDesigner Enterprise Architect Standalone Version – USER

http://fr.cdw.ca/shop/products/PowerDesigner-Enterprise-Architecture-license/3328515.aspx


this is the English version of PowerAMC Architecture d’entreprise.


SKU : 7014569-ZSS POWERAMC ARCHITECTURE D’ENTREPRISE AVEC REFERENTIEL – STANDALONE SEAT


and as for the SAP store not all PowerAMC editions are displayed over the cdw.ca Web site.


Finally We can,…but We can’t…


In fact what SAP Marketing wants to do with PowerDesigner/PowerAMC? Is this going to become a domestic product for SAP consulting branch?

This will become far too difficult for customers to find information to acquire the product.

I think there’s a serious push to give.

    Hi Benoit,

    You may have this information already…Just in case, here a quick update:

    PowerAMC is no longer available as a separate product.
    The features of PowerAMC and PowerDesigner were similar for several years.
    They are now delivered with a single installer, but the user can choose the installation language (French/English). More about the PowerAMC / PowerDesigner history here.

    AFAIK, the tool only comes with concurrent sessions (CS) now. No more standalone licenses. So by default, you will need Sysam to install a concurrent (floating) powerdesigner license. That being said, I was told you can still technically install a standalone copy (without Sysam), although you bought a floating one. this may help with if you wish to install it on a laptop and work with your customers as a consultant…

    As for the editions available, EnterpriseArchitect is still available, although DataArchitect is the most widely used. InformationArchitect and Portal/Portal composer are no longer available (seeĀ current and obsolete PowerDesigner editions).

    As for the difficulties you mentioned for customers to find information to acquire the product, you can purchase powerdesigner here.

    Hope this helps,
    Christophe
