erwin EDGE Platform

The erwin EDGE is an integrated and automated platform that combines enterprise modeling and data intelligence software to deliver an enterprise data governance experience. Rather than deploy an isolated technical program, organizations can use data governance as a strategic, ongoing practice to facilitate IT and business collaboration. That synergy enables different communities of enterprise stakeholders to discover, understand, govern and socialize data assets to realize the desired results while mitigating data-related risks.

Why you need erwin and erwin products

In these times of uncertainty and massive disruption, is your enterprise data helping you drive better outcomes? Even under normal circumstances, few organizations are truly data-driven. Most don’t use all the data they’re flooded with to reach deeper conclusions about how to generate more revenue, achieve regulatory compliance or make other strategic decisions. They don’t know exactly what data they have or even where some of it is, and they struggle to integrate known data in various formats and from numerous systems—especially if they don’t have a way to automate those processes.

Our ability to integrate and continuously refresh metadata from an organization’s entire data ecosystem, including business processes, enterprise architecture and data architecture, forms the foundation for enterprise-wide data discovery, governance, literacy and strategic use.
