ER/STUDIO SOLUTIONS help your business
and technical stakeholders map your complex data landscape,
building a solid foundation for data governance.


Lay a foundation for data governance. First, make sure you know how data flows through your organization. The best way to document this is with business process models. ER/Studio Business Architect helps you document the relationships among people, processes, and data.



ER/Studio Data Architect enables you to efficiently catalog your current data assets and sources across different platforms and track end-to-end data lineage. Simplify your data architecture with a common language leveraging consistent naming standards and data definitions. Easily specify the sensitive data objects that need heightened protection, to withstand audit scrutiny.



ER/Studio Enterprise Team Edition provides greater understanding and context to enterprise data through team collaboration on an enterprise glossary of business definitions. This increases the value of enterprise data by giving employees across the organization the ability to use and improve metadata. Data professionals and business stakeholders choose ER/Studio to share models and metadata in a comprehensive enterprise architecture.
