ER/Studio Data Architect
With round-trip database support, data architects using ER/Studio Data Architect have the power to easily reverse-engineer, compare and merge, and visually document data assets residing in diverse locations from data centers to mobile platforms. Enterprise data can be more effectively leveraged as a corporate asset, while compliance is supported for business standards and mandatory regulations -- essential factors in an organizational data governance program. A range of data sources are supported ranging from those residing on the cloud to data sources residing on mobile phones. These sources contain a range of data types from unstructured Big Data types to structured traditional datatypes.
"ER/Studio has been an invaluable tool for putting standards in place for designing and maintaining databases."

The Challenge of Fully Leveraging Enterprise Data
As organizations grow and data proliferates, ad hoc systems for storing, analyzing, and utilizing that data start to appear. Duplicated data infrastructures, multiple storage systems, full-time management efforts, and data correction tasks add an average of 200 percent to a company's data management costs.
Data management professionals face three distinct challenges:
- Reduce duplication and risk associated with multiple data capture and storage environments;
- Maximize data quality and re-usability across the organization;
- Clearly and effectively communicate data to all users.
Accurate interpretation and re-use of essential data throughout an organization can enable better decision-making.
All organizations must evolve in order to thrive. And you will do just that when you thoroughly leverage enterprise data as an asset, while complying with business standards and mandatory regulations.
ER/Studio Data Architect documents and enhances existing databases, improves data consistency and effectively communicates models across the enterprise
ER/Studio Data Architect provides an easy-to-use visual interface to document, understand, and publish information about existing databases so they can be better harnessed to support business objectives. Powerful reverse engineering capabilities allows a data modeler to compare and consolidate common data structures without creating unnecessary duplication.
In addition, with tighter integration with mobile databases, ER/Studio Data Architect allows data modelers to reverse engineer databases used in mobile applications to document and optimize their performance.
ER/Studio Data Architect helps data architects define and reuse common data elements and modeling components across modeling practices. By enforcing standards, and analyzing data elements, corporations can better understand and utilize their data and reduce redundancy.
ER/Studio Data Architect brings clarity to models and to complex business rule enforcement. The multilevel design layers allow for the accurate visualization of data, which promotes communication between business and technical users.
With a clear understanding of where data originated and where it is used, organizations can be assured that they know what their data actually means and how it can best be utilized.
- ER/Studio Data Architect provides built-in facilities to automate routine modeling tasks so data modelers and architects can analyze and optimize database and data warehouse designs faster than ever.
- Document and enhance existing databases
- Improve data consistency
- Effectively communicate models across the enterprise
- Trace data origins and whereabouts to enhance data integration and accuracy
