We developed a new edition of erwin Data Modeler called erwin DM NoSQL to help organizations leverage this modern database technology, while maintaining the integrity, quality and governance of their underlying business-critical information.

erwin DM NoSQL is the first and only enterprise-class data modeling solution to provide native, non-relational support for MongoDB, the world’s fastest-growing NoSQL database platform. Key capabilities include:

Native Design and Deployment for NoSQL Data Structures
Take the pain out of migrating traditional database models to the MongoDB platform by transforming relational schema and automatically converting it to a cloud-based collection structure for MongoDB deployment, dramatically speeding both traditional to NoSQL and
premise-to-cloud migrations while providing standard and required enterprise data documentation.

Discovery and Visualization of NoSQL Databases
Reverse-engineer existing MongoDB databases into graphical models, giving IT and business stakeholders a complete and contextual view of MongoDB assets for better collaboration, and ensure new cloud-based applications and data are documented for re-use and governance requirements.

On-Demand Modeling for MongoDB Environments
As a SaaS solution, data modelers and reviewers are up and running right away with anywhere-, anytime-, any-device access for fast time to productivity and value.

erwin Query-Optimized Modeling™
This patent-pending capability automatically guides users to effectively build MongoDB schemas that support application data access requirements, ensuring optimal data performance for every MongoDB application across the enterprise.

With erwin DM NoSQL, enterprises can model and manage unstructured cloud data with the same rigor and effectiveness as traditional data sources, reducing risk and dramatically enhancing enterprise governance and collaboration.
