Not sure how long we've been able to export to PDF from ER/Studio, but I don't think it worked well in the 99/'00 timeframe. The other issue is that you get into version issues with files as people store them in their machine, open the wrong one, etc.

I've always found a nice big diagram on a wall was the best reference. You can supplement it with a PDF or HTML, but a good central, easy to read point of reference is good.

Licensing is a pain, and it's hard. Good to see that Bob is building a better license, working with customers. I'd like to see more of that with vendors, and not just some negotiation over price.

Negotiate to ensure the client gets their needs met.

Well, the PDF option isn't really a good one for me. Our ERD's are a little too big to be easily readable in that format without some serious taping. The HTML option has been around for some time, though. I don't know if it was in the releases ~ 1999/2000, but if not it was pretty close to that point.

As for the licensing, I'd much prefer a concurrent user type licensing for the most part for tools like this. We just don't have that many people who are going to access them regularly. However, that is a significant cost increase over the single-user/pc license. I may need to check out the all-access license to see what the differences are. That may be worth it for us.

Supposedly the All-Access is slightly above the cost of 2 tools. What that means, I'm not sure, but check it out.

The All Access license comes in many flavours.

One of the other benefits of this license scheme is the concept of InstantOn. With InstantOn, you can, if you want, run the software from a thumbdrive. No install required. So not only do you not have to deal with licensing hoops, you don't have to deal with which version of the software is installed on which machine issues.

Not all the Embarcadero products are InstantOn yet, but many are.
