Document Data and Metadata
Modeling and metadata management can help to measure, control, and improve the quality of the data. With ER/Studio, you can document critical data elements, business data objects, and regulatory data elements and show their sources, interactions, and dependencies, in logical and physical models.
Implement Naming Standards
Assign a naming standards template to your model, submodel, entities, and attributes, and ER/Studio Enterprise Team Edition will automatically apply those naming standards between the logical and physical models, ensuring consistency between models. You can also integrate model elements into reusable constructs via a built-in enterprise data dictionary.
Collaborate on Global Glossary Terms
ER/Studio Enterprise Team Edition lets users define business-area specific glossaries with rollups to higher level glossaries to reflect the corporate structure. Business and technical team members can view and update the business terms to share corporate knowledge in one centralized location.
Share Models and Metadata Across the Enterprise
The models and associated metadata are the only means by which complex data environments can truly be understood and managed. IT users can publish models in Team Server for others to access via the interactive viewer, and set permissions for visibility of objects. Identify and track recent changes with audit trails.
Establish a Foundation for Data Governance
Establish a data strategy based on a centralized model and metadata hub. Comply with industry regulations and business standards regarding security and privacy by alerting users who view or modify sensitive data. Easily set permissions for access controls. Consolidate information in easy-to-understand reports for business analysts.
