Notice to Validator Users


Notice to Users of CA ERwin Data Model Validator

Effective May 31, 2012, DBE Software, Inc. (“DBE”) terminated its distribution agreement with CA Technologies (“CA”). As of June 1st 2012, CA no longer markets and sells CA ERwin Data Model ValidatorTM (“Validator”).

DBE Software Inc. is the developer and owner of the Validator technology. Organizations like yours have made this technology the standard for data model analysis and remediation. It is now used by more than 2,500 companies worldwide to ensure the quality and integrity of their database designs and therefore of the information produced.

Database EXAMINER is the next-generation schema analysis and remediation product. It retains the strong functionality of Validator, while incorporating other powerful features. It is upward compatible and functionally-transparent to Validator. It analyzes schemas generated for Oracle, DB2, Sybase, SQL Server, MySQL, and Teradata as well as data models produced by CA ERwin.

Validator customers currently enrolled under a maintenance program will receive EXAMINER (which will replace Validator) for free. Again, EXAMINER installation and operation are transparent to those of Validator.

PLEASE REGISTER HERE TO RECEIVE DATABASE EXAMINER AS A NO-COST REPLACEMENT FOR VALIDATOR - When we receive your registration, we will expedite the latest version of EXAMINER to your installation.

We welcome your organization into our worldwide customer group.


Register with DBE Software so we may send you Database Examiner if you are current with Validator maintenance.
