The Evolution – From Data Modeling to Data Governance
For more than 30 years, erwin Data Modeler (DM) has been the first choice of CDOs, CIOs, data architects and other IT professionals. Government agencies and the most discerning financial institutions, retailers and healthcare companies around the world have depended on us to power their mission-critical applications.
But we’ve evolved. Our proven track record and the opportunity to become a preeminent player in the data space led Parallax Capital Partners to purchase erwin and establish it as a private, stand-alone company in March 2016. Since then, we’ve acquired enterprise architecture company Corso, business process modeling/management company Casewise, data harvesting technology and data governance consulting services company A&P Consulting, and metadata management and data governance company AnalytiX DS.
These acquisitions, along with significant R&D, have culminated in the only data governance software platform with integrated capabilities for enterprise modeling, data cataloging and data literacy. The erwin EDGE creates an “enterprise data governance experience” that facilitates collaboration between IT and the business to discover, understand, govern and socialize data both at rest and in motion.
Data scientist, data steward, ETL developer, enterprise architect, business analyst, compliance officer, CDO, CEO – whatever the role, we’re all “data people” with more opportunities than ever before to impact our organizations. And from our perspective, data governance drives everything.
Getting the Hard Stuff Right
While the idea of data governance is not new, putting it into practice and reaping its benefits as a strategic initiative is. However, our research with UBM indicates organizations are starting to view data governance as either important or critically important from a business perspective and regulatory compliance is the top driver. But governing data assets goes far beyond risk management and compliance. It also drives customer satisfaction and trust, better decision-making, reputation management and analytics.
erwin’s approach and software platform for data governance enables organizations to get a handle on their data. With integrated enterprise modeling, data cataloging and data literacy capabilities, the erwin EDGE fuels an automated, high-quality, real-time data pipeline to support risk management, innovation and transformation – and any project within.
Data governance is where our core capabilities intersect to help customers see and understand how data flows through and impacts all critical architectures. Therefore, it’s the heart of our business. And as the data governance company, we will help you automate and accelerate your speed to accurate and actionable business insights.
