We use Dataedo to document a SSAS implementation for a power business user, to understand the intent of each field and measure so they can build their reports more effectively. It helps us document the 'why' we built it the way we did. The tool is very intuitive to work with, and we use it continuously. We also want to use more licenses in the near future.
Dataedo is an easy to use facility for managing basic metadata centrally and producing enhanced data dictionaries. Initially we wanted to use it for a single set of system documentation, but we will now employ it for scheduled metadata updates along with multi-user maintenance. The well-structured database repository has also facilitated a Data Lineage project. I would recommend Dataedo to anyone with similar requirements, and in fact already have.
Dataedo made it easy to find information about our databases and evaluate the percentage of documentation of the DB. It is a very intuitive tool and we use it regularly. I would recommend it to anyone. I evaluated other tools like ApexSQL and Data Dictionary Creator and Dataedo is just the most complete tool.
Dataedo helped us document a third-party database that did not follow DB best practices. It didn't have any foreign keys, and Dataedo helped us track relationships and made data easier to find. The tool is helping us be more consistent with our integration, and it's helping developers with less experience find the data that they are looking for. It is regularly used by all our developers for all our own and third-party databases. I would recommend the tool to anyone with a similar issue to solve.
