erwin Inc., a provider of data management software, has acquired business process analysis vendor Casewise Ltd. According to erwin, Casewise solutions enable enterprises to capture, document and visualize the system interactions, business processes and organizational hierarchies that they need to make actionable and strategic decisions. Casewise business process optimization is used by more than 30,000 business analysts and architects across 3,000 organizations in finance, telecommunications, insurance, energy, pharmaceuticals, logistics, retail, government agencies and utilities.
it has been 8 months since private equity firm Parallax Capital Partners finalized the acquisition of erwin, from CA Technologies. As a result of that transaction, erwin established itself as a standalone company led by Adam Famularo, who was named CEO of erwin.
Frequently, there are large quantities of data scattered throughout organizations and it is difficult to see this data in the context of where and how it’s being used by enterprise processes, technologies and applications, observed Famularo, commenting on the Casewise acquisition. Having visibility and understanding is critical to building a solid foundation for big data initiatives, according to Famularo.
With Casewise process modeling integrated into the erwin data management platform, customers will be able to identify where and how data elements are being used throughout the organization; and also see data in context, with the ability to identify applications, processes and technologies that will be impacted by changes to the data design.
The combination of solutions will also enable customers to do database design and data definition language (DDL) directly from visual models and, after analyzing existing operations, assess the impact of potential changes before committing to expensive and time-consuming implementations.
Alexandre Wentzo, CEO of Casewise, is joining the erwin leadership team as vice president of global sales and services.
