ER/Studio is the fastest, easiest and most collaborative way for data modelling professionals to build and maintain enterprise-scale databases and data warehouses. ER/Studio sets a new standard for data management.
Create effective models to build a business-driven data architecture.
ER/Studio Architect is offered in two editions, ER/Studio Data Architect and ER/Studio Business Architect. For those needing collaboration, ER/Studio Team Server is the choice.
What is ER/Studio?
ER/Studio is a business process and conceptual modelling tool that simplifies how business stakeholders and data architects document conceptual models and business processes and how those processes impact enterprise data to align with business goals and regulatory requirements. Bringing together the simplicity of a drawing tool with the rich semantics of the BPMN 2.0 standard, business users and data professionals can easily model the relationships between people, processes, and data with Business Architect.
New features in ER/Studio
ER/Studio 19.1 delivers significant new business process modelling capabilities (Business Architect) and platform enhancements, quality and performance improvements. The 19.1 release is our highest quality and best-performing release of Team Server in more than two years, combining new updates with improvements from earlier releases into a new ER/Studio Enterprise Team Edition package that will address many customer requests.
ER/Studio 17.0 delivers significant, expanded process modelling capabilities in Business Architect, numerous performance improvements, and enhancements and quality improvements to other components within the product suite.
Business and Enterprise Architecture
The new release of ER/Studio Business Architect provides process modelling capabilities that exceed the BPMN 2.0 standard while also providing a common frame of reference to bridge communication gaps, streamline operations, and align business processes with strategic goals. This is extremely important because:
Data Platform Support
User Experience and Trials
Team Server performance improvements in several areas through minor improvements and updates to 45 database views:
Data Modeling & Lineage
Collaboration & Governance
There were several foundational technology improvements as well:
ER/Studio Business Architect Process models can now be built and validated with all BPMN 2.0 constructs. At times other products in the market claim to be BPMN 2.0 compliant but do not implement the full set of constructs with validation that conforms to the BPMN 2.0 standard. The fact that we offer Business Architect as a standalone product and an integral part of ER/Studio Enterprise Team Edition gives our customers maximum flexibility. We offer an easy-to-use solution that shares models, common objects, and glossaries across the organization, improving productivity and alignment.
Through ER/Studio Enterprise Team Edition, we provide a comprehensive, collaborative platform that encompasses Data Modeling, Business Process Modeling, and Enterprise Architecture to establish a foundation for Data Governance initiatives. In particular, this builds on our strong history in which we have provided integrated data and process modelling within the ER/Studio suite for over ten years. Other solutions in the marketplace claim to do the same but are comprised of separate, non-integrated products. In particular, Erwin has been making numerous claims regarding their leadership in enterprise architecture even though the process modelling products they acquired through corporate acquisitions (Corso and Casewise) are not integrated into the core Erwin data modeller products. Thus, creating silos rather than breaking them down.
ER/Studio Data Architect includes all the features you need to create and manage logical and physical data models, including detailed compare and merge capability, naming standards, data dictionaries, and extensive platform support.
ER/Studio Business Architect also includes the shared model repository for model change management and version control with branch and merge support.
ER/Studio is offered in three versions: the stand-alone Data Architect edition, the Business Architect edition, and the Enterprise Team edition. That provides additional capabilities for model and metadata sharing, business process modelling, cross-organizational collaboration, and an enterprise glossary. Many of these functions can also be obtained as companion products to the ER/Studio Data Architect offers. All of these editions are available in single-platform or multi-platform versions.
