This white paper examines the evolutionary changes that are occurring in the overall architectural tools market, including the increasing emphasis on enterprise architecture tools and the importance of a converged approach to architectural tools where support is provided for both business architecture and IT architecture. The convergence of business architecture and IT architecture in one tool provides a more comprehensive, unified, and valuable approach for aligning IT with the structure and strategy of the business. PowerDesigner is one of the first tools to address this converged view of business and IT. A review of key PowerDesigner features is provided along with a detailed discussion of PowerDesigner support for EA and what this means for the overall architectural tools market.
