Another Fortune 500 company migrates from CA to Embarcadero Data Modeling Tools
SAN FRANCISCO – February 18, 2015 – Embarcadero Technologies, a leading provider of software solutions for application and database development, today announced it has closed a major deal with one of CA's large customers, among the elite Fortune 500 high tech firms, to switch from CA ERwin® to Embarcadero ER/Studio. The customer is expected to deploy ER/Studio to hundreds of data modelers – and potentially thousands of business users throughout the organization. This significant customer win extends the trend of other recent large ERwin to ER/Studio migrations such as Microsoft.
"We are delighted to be helping yet another large enterprise as they move from ERwin to ER/Studio. This company has seen ER/Studio speed the opening of their huge data models by ten times, and significantly enhance their use within the business. This is a testament to both Embarcadero's vision and investment to provide consistent data modeling innovation and industry leadership. We are working with many organizations who are concerned about both the present and the future of ERwin, whereas Embarcadero daily demonstrates total commitment to data modeling." said Wayne Williams, President and CEO.
Some of the keys to this ERwin to ER/Studio transaction were:
- Disappointment in support and frequency of updates for ERwin
- Lack of future direction and commitment for ERwin within CA
- Head to head ERwin/ER/Studio performance tests by customer – with ER/Studio outperforming ERwin by 10x
- Embarcadero invests in R&D at double the industry average
- Embarcadero's unmatched product and customer support for ER/Studio
A spokesperson for the customer said "We now see far too much risk in continuing with CA ERwin. Embarcadero have proved to be in partnership with us and truly understand what we need from our data modeling".
This also follows an announcement by CA in November 2014 that "For financial accounting purposes, CA Technologies will continue to recognize the CA ERwin business as discontinued operations".
