ER/Studio Enterprise Team Edition
Comprehensive collaborative suite for enterprise data
model and architecture design
With many organizations seeing a significant increase in data, and with data becoming more diverse and
updated more frequently, it’s clear that the role of data management professionals has become increasingly
complex. Fortunately, ER/Studio Enterprise sets a new standard for data management that empowers users
to easily share, document and publish models and metadata to distributed teams.
“ER/Studio allows us to collaborate efficiently and keep up with
our vast, complex databases and our customers’ needs.”
KELLY CARRIGAN, VP OF DATA WAREHOUSING AND INFRASTRUCTURE,
CATALINA MARKETING
“With ER/Studio, we can have closer collaboration between
architects and DBAs, which improves efficiency and provides
the visibility we need.”
LORRAINE KNERR, VICE PRESIDENT OF DATA MANAGEMENT, ACCOLADE
The Challenge of Managing and Utilizing Enterprise Data
Physically capturing and properly integrating data is challenging,
especially for unstructured content. Making sense of the new data,
interpreting it correctly, and making it available to decision makers
by a specific time poses three distinct challenges for data management professionals:
• Improving and managing data quality
• Leveraging enterprise data as an organizational asset
• Clearly and effectively communicating data throughout
an organization
According to a 2011 study by Artemis Ventures, poor data quality
costs the US economy around $3.1 trillion per year. Several industry reports estimate the cost of poor quality data at 15% to 25% of
a corporation’s operating revenue. It is estimated that 25 percent
of all data in Fortune 1000 companies remains inaccurate. Bad
data comes from a lack of standardization. IT professionals must
improve the data quality and consistency to get the full value of
their data so that it can be trusted by decision makers.
Those organizations that can make even incremental improvements to the accurate and effective use of large volumes of data
will see significant benefits. A recent study by the University of
Texas found that if the median Fortune 1000 company could
increase its data usability by just 10 percent, revenues could grow
by $2 billion a year.
With an emphasis on collaboration, ER/Studio Enterprise Team
edition gives data modelers and data architects the capabilities
needed to analyze, document, and share essential metadata across
the organization, including glossaries, terms and custom attributes. Data professionals can define an enterprise glossary to consolidate the business terms and definitions for all data models, and
business users can contribute to the glossary contents to establish
an authoritative reference.
Now business and technical users – in any size of organization –
can be confident that high value and complex decisions are based
on a common understanding of the corporate metadata. They
can rest assured that interpretations of data from myriad sources,
including big data and relational data, will be consistent across
a large enterprise. ER/Studio Enterprise Team edition allows data
management professionals to document, interpret, and fully take
control of their enterprise data environment.
When an organization can interpret data accurately, and share
and re-use data faster, the quality of business decision-making
improves. Empowered with easy-to-use features for communicating and sharing essential data and definitions, ER/Studio Enterprise Team edition users find it easier and faster to successfully
draw high value conclusions. ER/Studio gives data management
professionals the metadata foundation to quickly respond to business process demands, reducing the risk of non-compliance, while
delivering greater, more actionable insight.
ER/Studio Enterprise Team edition builds even further on its support
of strategic enterprise systems including Teradata, Netezza, Green-
plum, and mobile databases, as well as Big Data platform support
for Hadoop Hive and MongoDB, giving organizations an interpretative and collaborative enterprise advantage for leveraging their
data residing in diverse locations, from data centers to mobile
platforms.
ER/Studio Enterprise Team edition delivers superior organization
of data models by correlating physical and logical mappings, and
provides enhanced metadata and traceability features supported
by visual documentation. ER/Studio’s extensive navigation features
allow business users the ability to browse, search and report on
model metadata, streamlining communication and collaboration.
Embarcadero Technologies is dedicated to helping data management professionals achieve increasingly complex tasks quickly, and
with greater ease. ER/Studio provides visibility into existing data
assets while reducing re-creation and redundancy. Empowered
with easy-to-use features for communicating and collaborating
on essential data and definitions, ER/Studio users find it simpler
and faster to successfully manage their data and use it for making
high-value decisions.
