Winners' Circle by Adam Famularo, CEO
For the sixth consecutive year, erwin Data Modeler (DM) has been DBTA readers’ choice. This type of recognition is always gratifying because it signifies trust in our products and people. It also speaks to the creativity of erwin DM customers in using the tool to drive results for their organizations.
erwin DM is the industry standard—and we intend to keep it that way. It’s used by the world’s largest organizations and top brands to design and deploy new relational databases with high-quality data sources and support application development.
However, erwin offers other tools to help organizations extract and use the metadata in their erwin data models. In fact, one of the most compelling data modeling use cases lies in its connection to the increasingly important realm of data governance.
That’s why erwin DM is part of a larger technology platform that creates an “enterprise data governance experience.” The erwin EDGE also includes business process and enterprise architecture modeling, as well as a data intelligence suite that combines data cataloging and data literacy capabilities.
With data governance as the driving principle, IT and the rest of the enterprise can discover, understand, govern and socialize data assets. Every stakeholder has role-based, self-service access to the information needed to collaborate in making strategic decisions. And because many of the associated processes can be automated, you reduce errors and increase the speed and quality of your data pipeline.
Working with a trusted technology partner to unlock more of your potential and value is key to success in today’s hyper-competitive, data-driven business environment.
