IDERA Wins Bronze in Best in Biz Awards 2017

ER/Studio Data Modeling and Architecture Tool Receives Innovative Product Honor

November 29, 2017 11:21 AM Eastern Standard Time – HOUSTON – (BUSINESS WIRE) – IDERA (a division of Idera, Inc.) has been named a bronze winner for the “Most Innovative Product of the Year – Enterprise” in the Best in Biz Awards. It is the only independent business awards program judged each year by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications in North America.

In March of 2017, database lifecycle management software provider IDERA released the latest version of its ER/Studio Enterprise Team Edition product. The updated data modeling and architecture tool includes enhanced data governance capabilities, closes the gaps between data modeling and development and improves collaboration between data professionals and business users.

Each year, Best in Biz Awards’ entrants span the spectrum, from some of the most innovative local start-ups to the most recognizable global brands. The seventh annual program was highly contested, with more than 650 entries from an impressive array of public and private companies across a variety of industries and geographic regions in the U.S. and Canada. Best in Biz Awards 2017 honors were presented in 65 categories, including Company of the Year, Fastest-Growing Company, Most Innovative Company, Best Place to Work, Support Department, Executive of the Year, Most Innovative Product, Best New Product, App, Event and Website of the Year.

“Organizations need collaboration tools that bridge the gap between IT and the business, and our ER/Studio tool closes this gap by providing data modeling and development teams with integrated data lifecycle capabilities,” said Neil Garrett, vice president of marketing at IDERA. “Being honored by the Best in Biz Awards is validation that ER/Studio continues to be an innovative solution that allows databases to support constantly changing enterprise environments.”

Since 2011, winners of Best in Biz Awards have been determined based on scoring from independent judging panels composed of prominent editors and reporters from some of the most respected newspapers, TV outlets, and business, consumer, technology and trade publications in North America. Best in Biz Awards’ uniqueness stems, in part, from this distinct composition of its judging panels, allowing it to best leverage the judges’ unparalleled expertise, experience and objectivity to determine award winners.
