The Added Benefits of erwin Smart Data Connectors

erwin Smart Data Connectors
Out-of-the-box erwin Standard Data Connectors are included with an initial license of erwin Data Catalog to automate metadata collection from common industry data-at-rest sources, including relational, NOSQL and Big Data database management systems (DBMS), as well as XML, JSON and CVS flat file metadata. But many organizations elect to take active metadata use further with the addition of erwin Smart Data Connectors. Providing metadata-driven automation for even the most complex systems and environments, erwin Smart Data Connectors extend data architecture visibility and create engineering efficiencies that shorten project delivery times and reduce risks. The advantages of our erwin Smart Data Connectors include:

Complex metadata harvesting

Automate metadata harvesting and ingestion of data in motion and complex data-at-rest sources through an extensive library of data connectors to industry-standard DBMS, ETL/ELT platforms and BI/reporting applications.

Detailed and thorough data mapping

Better guide decisions, impact analysis and data governance by providing the most complete, current and unified view of your data architecture – inclusive of data sources, flows, transformations and targets.

Universal code generation

Automatically generate SQL, ETL and 4GL procedural code by forward-engineering mapping documents to eliminate time-consuming hand-coding, speed project delivery, and ensure code quality.

Faster data migration & ETL conversion projects

Increase the speed of data migration and ETL conversion projects by forward- and reverse-engineering the associated re-platforming processes.

Data Vault automation

Cut project timelines and efficiently deliver, document and operate data vaults or other traditionally complex data architectures and data warehouse methodologies.

Automation potential on overdrive

Backed by the robust parsing, code generation and metadata activation capabilities of erwin’s proprietary automation framework, erwin Smart Data Connectors can be developed for even the most challenging environment.

Efficient business intelligence

Make data analysts more productive in analyzing BI reports, document dashboards and mappings by linking reporting fields to the underlying data sources.

Harmonized data management & governance

Synchronize and harmonize data management and governance processes with third-party tools at the API level, reducing ongoing maintenance and ensuring sustainability.

The erwin automation difference

Here’s the reality: there’s not enough time, people and money for true metadata management or sustainable data governance using manual processes. Without automation, business and digital transformation will be stymied, but having to outsource these efforts to professional services firms will only delay schedules and increase costs.

With erwin Smart Data Connectors, your organization can reduce errors and accelerate data preparation, deployment, literacy and governance. Only erwin unifies every piece of the data management and governance lifecycle so enterprises can understand and trust their data for faster speed to insights.

What’s really different about erwin’s metadata-driven automation approach ?

Software, not services

Automate data operations with software suited to your needs. Forget expensive, outsourced professional services.

Productivity gains & cost reductions

Achieve productivity gains of 85%+ for coding, 70%+ for metadata discovery, up to 50% for data design, up to 70% for data conversion, and up to 80% for data mapping.

erwin-built & maintained

erwin data connectors are 100% developed and maintained by erwin, backed by deep metadata activation expertise that has guided hundreds of customers to success.

Maps your entire data landscape

Rely on the broadest range of metadata connectors available to fully capture your “as-is” data architecture inclusive of data sources, dataflows, transformations and data targets.

Schedulable & configurable

Keep data lineage and mind map documentation current with advanced scheduling of automated metadata harvesting, with granular version control and full traceability.

Eliminates manual, repetitive coding

Automate and activate metadata-driven processes to develop, document and operate data pipelines more efficiently for faster time to value.

Governs your development lifecycle

Standardize approach, code, documentation and delivery to assure quality and leverage and retain tribal knowledge despite staffing changes.

Overcomes technical complexity

Leverage erwin automation and expertise to successfully tackle sophisticated development projects, such as delivery and operation of a Data Vault.
