Working Natively: Turn Your Data into Strategic Business Drivers

Getting started with building a data governance framework is challenging. Where do you start? The foundation should be built on data models supporting governance decisions. ER/Studio makes the difference by producing structured data models, including the Enterprise Conceptual and Enterprise Logical Data Models, to provide clarity for informed governance decisions.

Collibra advocates this approach as the core of their Guided Stewardship method. Get a demo to find out more.

Building a Data Governance Framework is Challenging

Where Do You Start?

Collibra advocates the Guided Stewardship method. Guided Data Stewardship in data governance is about providing a structured, systematic approach to managing an organization’s data assets. Guided Data Stewardship in data governance is about providing a structured, systematic approach to managing an organization’s data assets. It combines clear roles, standardized procedures, the use of appropriate tools, training, decision-making frameworks, performance monitoring, and alignment with business goals to ensure effective and efficient management of data.


ER/Studio Enterprise supports and enhances Guided Data Stewardship by providing the necessary tools and framework for effective data management. It enables a clear definition of roles and responsibilities, standardizes data governance processes, supports decision-making, and aligns data stewardship with organizational goals, making it a vital component in any data governance strategy.


ER/Studio is an Enterprise Data Architecture tool that is built to create and manage Enterprise Conceptual and Enterprise Logical Data Models. These can be easily pushed to Collibra and then synchronized as they change. So now this structure can be produced and maintained by the Data Architects and then exploited by the Data Stewards rapidly increasing the efficiency and focus of their efforts.


In addition, ER/Studio can produce a business glossary of terms by harvesting from data models. This kickstarts the creation of a well-considered first-cut business glossary. But that's not all. Ideally, a good business glossary should be arranged into an ontology where the terms are connected via clear relationships. This makes navigating and managing a business glossary so much easier. Vital structures like taxonomies can be built which provide valuable knowledge. For instance, we understand that our business has a concept called “Shift Pattern” but did you know that we have 6 different types of “Shift Pattern” each with very different characteristics? This, in practice, dramatically improves the precision of language and reduces risk in communication. Data Models will naturally contain these structures and the harvesting process produces a more valuable business glossary.


ER/Studio can synchronize business terms with Collibra with either tool acting as the master with changes propagated to the other as they occur.


Collibra + ER/Studio means that Data Stewards, Data Architects, Chief Data Officers, and stakeholders can work together and produce a much greater level of clarity in data governance.


Understand Your Data, Unite Your Organization

Enterprise Data modeling is critical for effective Data Governance. ER/Studio and Collibra working together provide the framework needed for robust Data Governance program with accurate, trusted data that can lead to tangible business success.
