|ER/Studio - Customer Testimonials|
More than 10,000 companies chose to deploy ER/Studio. Selection criteria was based on various factors including ease of use, ease of migration, support for big data platforms, advanced metadata management, and excellent technical support. Don't take our word for it; read what some of our customers have to say:
Just a few of the companies modeling their enterprise data with ER/Studio:
"We had to use a tool like Visio and do everything by hand before. We're talking about thousands of tables with subsequent relationships. Now ER/Studio automates the most time consuming tasks."
"It's exciting that we finally have the tools to keep pace with the data warehousing technology we've had in place all along. Our modeling capabilities are in lockstep with our database now."
"We switched from CA ERwin to ER/Studio, because the ER/Studio suite gave us the opportunity to move modeling from a task that needed to be completed to a strategic advantage that helps us drive the business."
"ER/Studio is THE software solution that helps me quickly make sense out of today's database messes. Few software products can get you from overwhelmed to under control in so little time. ER/Studio does not compromise on technical sophistication either - you can maintain as many versions as you need and still keep everything at the logical level, well, logical. I LOVE your product."
With the onslaught of compliance regulations and the heightened need to understand and document data sources, the task of effectively tracing data lineages has never been more important. With its new Visual Data Lineage functionality, ER/Studio 8.0 simplifies the way we trace data movement among databases and flat files, which ultimately helps us better understand the data assets within our government customers' organizations. This benefits us across numerous domains - facilitating data consolidation, SOA migration, FISMA compliance, and DIACAP needs.
Embarcadero tools detected inconsistencies we didn't even know existed in our systems, saving us from problems down the road.
ER/Studio has saved me many, many hours of time. I can rely on it. There is no competition.
To be honest, my first impression of ER/Studio was 'Oh, my god! I'll never get familiar enough with it for a review during a 14-day trial period. I was wrong. ER/Studio is very easy to use and offers many user-friendly features to help make your entry into the world of data modeling easier.
I used ERwin and TOAD. What I liked about Embarcadero ER/Studio modeling software is the nice automatic layout formats. I also liked the jpg output capability. I ended up doing my own so I could have a top-down diagram using diagonal lines instead of the 90^ type provided by the tool. But it was fun to see the various auto-layout formats. Your software was very useful. I was just evaluating it in the context of whipping up a diagram for a review last week. I showed it to the team whose work I was reviewing. They were impressed.
My experiences with our Danish solution provider show me that Embarcadero is more attentive to the needs of their customers than other companies whose data products may not be as core to the business. I am sure that our full implementation of ER/Studio will have an enormous impact on our ability to serve the needs of our customers.
Embarcadero's tools have given me a quantum leap in productivity that helps me work faster, smarter, and without error in my finished products
ER/Studio has been an invaluable tool for putting standards in place for designing and maintaining databases.
ER/Studio's big competitive advantage is its ease of use. Whether you want the product for data modeling per se, or you just want to document your existing system, this ease of use should be a major factor.
Our clients' databases reside on multiple platforms in both local and remote locations, which present a challenge when managing consistency and redundancy in data modeling activities. Our long term goal is to help build clear, well documented data models that will enforce standards, enable reuse, and improve the efficiency and quality of modeling projects for their organizations. ER/Studio makes that a reality. The new naming standards utility allows us to deploy multiple standards to our various database platforms.
The software is an update to ER/Studio 6, previously reviewed by the CRN Test Center. Version 6.5 adds valuable new tools and features, but retains its core competency as an application that works with DT/Studio to help developers and architects design and develop logical data models from hybrid data sources.
Immediate benefit in productivity has been realized since using ER/Studio from Embarcadero, especially when leveraging domains that represent template data types. These domains can be created hierarchically so specific properties are inherited from the parent domains. These domains help to ensure that we accurately represent many similar data structures with ease as well as guarantee that we understand the data represented in every data model design we develop.
Embarcadero recently released a new version of their top-of-line ER/Studio. This new version is chock-full of improvements, enhancements, and changes from the previous version...
ER/Studio and Embarcadero Change Manager save us a full day's work for each and every production push.
A Fortune 50 company needed to restate several years of financial data, which uncovered the company's metadata challenge. A project team was formed to correct the issues by delivering the basic metadata from all projects within 90 days or less. Using Embarcadero ER/Studio, the team achieved and exceeded its goals within the allotted timeframe and two years later, continues to record benefits derived from ER/Studio.
Implementing the ER/Studio product line has saved me time and money by reducing the process complexity. . . Embarcadero continues to demonstrate its commitment to customers, delivering a solid and rapidly evolving data-modeling solution
By using ER/Studio, Idea Integration is able to better support the data management needs of its clients with increased visibility, consistency, and integration that address their database requirements via data lineage tracking and documentation with additional security management and capacity planning functionality. This solution provided a complete environment for helping build quality database design and clarifying complex data design problems through visually clear 'blueprints', for analyzing, creating, and maintaining database applications.
Despite what some people may think, data modeling is still the preferred method for creating database schemas. Unfortunately, modeling often gets pushed to the back burner in lieu of creating tables and relationships in the middle of coding the application. For those who would push data modeling to the front burner if only they had a better tool, there's Embarcadero's smooth and easy ER/Studio.
I cannot adequately emphasize the impact that ER/Studio will have on the success of your enterprise. The cost of the product is barely a concern compared to the money it will save your company and the modeling enhancements it will offer your development team.
ER/Studio represents a significant value-add in how we see and leverage our data models by giving us much greater interplay between our business intelligence applications, metadata repositories, and other major ETL environments.
Accurate, timely, and relevant data is at the heart of the marketing services we provide our customers. By standardizing on ER/Studio for enterprise model management, we are assured of the consistency we need. All systems, whether reverse engineered or built from scratch, are designed using ER/Studio. Its rich documentation and data lineage functionality allow us to track database schema changes and helps us meet Sarbanes Oxley requirements.
ER/Studio allowed us to quickly model, communicate and revise our data model and definitions. Without this tool we may not have attempted the project.
Embarcadero ER/Studio eases the challenges for database developers dealing with the tremendous overload of data captured from business processes and other sources, making it one of the best database development tools ever tested by the CRN Test Center.
Without a doubt, the ability to make extensive use of automation was a key ER/Studio feature for us at Ambassadors. The combination of this functionality, the advanced reverse engineering, enterprise reporting, rich Oracle8.1.x and 9i support, all made ER/Studio a mainstay in our day-to-day operations.
Embarcadero tools are uniquely positioned to enable companies to manage [the] data explosion.
