Martin Owen, Vice President of Product Strategy


Metadata management is key to unleashing the value of enterprise data. But finding, ingesting, integrating, linking, sharing and analyzing metadata usually depends on manual processes and takes a lot of time, money and specialized technical resources.

However, the right metadata management solution can help any organization reach deeper conclusions about how to drive revenue, achieve regulatory compliance or accomplish any other strategic objective.

erwin Data Catalog (erwin DC) automates enterprise metadata management, including data mapping, code generation, data quality, data lineage and impact analysis. It integrates and activates data in a single, unified catalog in accordance with business requirements by:

  • Scheduling ongoing scans of metadata from the widestarray of data sources.
  • Keeping metadata current with full versioning and changemanagement.
  • Easily mapping data elements from source to target,including data at rest and in motion, and harmonizingdata integration across platforms.

As part of the erwin Data Intelligence Suite (erwin DI), you can automatically harvest, transform and feed metadata from a wide array of data sources, operational processes, business applications and data models into a central data catalog and then make it accessible and understandable within the context of role-based views.

That’s important because data isn’t just for data professionals and developers anymore. It’s everyone’s business to uncover meaningful insights and use them for risk management/regulatory compliance, agile innovation and business transformation.
