Embarcadero takes the data modeling lead with native support for key big data platforms

SAN FRANCISCO — May 19, 2015 — Embarcadero Technologies, a leading provider of software solutions for application and database development, today announced that its data modeling tool, ER/Studio® Data Architect version 10.0, has been certified by HortonWorks for HortonWorks Data Platform (HDP) 2.1 and certified against MongoDB Enterprise for versions 2.4 through 3.0. The new certifications build on ER/Studio’s industry-leading native support for a variety of database platforms – including Apache Hive for Hadoop, MongoDB Enterprise, and traditional relational database management systems (RDBMS).

“These certifications build upon the strong ER/Studio big data foundation introduced in fall 2014 with forward/reverse engineering of Hive tables for Hadoop and reverse engineering for MongoDB Enterprise,” says Michael Swindell, senior vice president of products at Embarcadero. “Certification for HDP and MongoDB Enterprise showcases the growing level of support and dedication to big data within ER/Studio. Customers can have confidence that the metadata defining their big data stores can be accurately viewed, modeled, and updated using the industry leading ER/Studio Data Architect platform. This is another example of why companies of all sizes continue to move to ER/Studio every day and why Embarcadero has become the data tools source for 90% of Fortune 100 companies and 97% of the Global 2000 companies.”

New forward/reverse engineering capabilities
Data modeling professionals can use ER/Studio Data Architect to easily forward/reverse-engineer, compare and merge, and visually document data assets residing in diverse locations from data centers to mobile platforms. A variety of database platforms, including Apache Hive and MongoDB, can be imported and integrated into shared models and metadata definitions:

Apache Hive for Hadoop: ER/Studio Data Architect captures data structures by reverse engineering Hive tables into an entity relationship diagram, and can also create Hive tables that can be forward engineered into a Hadoop database.

MongoDB Enterprise: ER/Studio Data Architect includes a special “is contained in” notation for the nested objects and object arrays in the MongoDB data structures, and now can forward engineer a model to create blank-sample JSON.

“MongoDB was designed to support rapid modern application development and diverse data structures,” says Kelly Stirman, VP of Strategy, MongoDB. “ER/Studio allows data scientists to efficiently extract sophisticated data stored in MongoDB, and preserve the relationships in an organized layout. This functionality is critical for effective data modeling in multi-platform environments.”
