Benefits of erwin Data Intelligence

Data leads to information, and information — with context — leads to data intelligence.

Who needs erwin Data Intelligence?

From data analysts, data architects and data stewards to chief executives and business users, erwin Data Intelligence is used by many across the organization to understand, govern, deliver and leverage enterprise data to its fullest advantage. As companies increasingly recognize the role data can play in their evolution, the number of roles requiring more timely, accurate access to data intelligence increases. The convergence of exploding data production, scalable big data computation, and advanced analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence have given rise to citizen analysts: business-oriented problem-solvers charged with understanding how to apply analytical techniques to massive data sets to identify emergent business opportunities.

Additionally, the prevalence of chief data officers (CDOs) continues to grow to better harmonize data management, governance and consumption efforts to overcome the opaqueness, complexity and siloed nature of enterprise data. Enterprises today must have visibility of their data (and metadata) landscape to harvest, curate and publish data assets available for analysis and reporting. Plus both IT and citizen analysts need access with an understanding of how different data assets can be used along with guidelines for adhering to data policies that best protect the organization.
