IDERA ER/Studio Enterprise Edition
Data Modeling Tools for Enterprise-Scale Data Architecture
Database Modeling Tools for
Enterprise Data Modeling and Governance
Drive Innovation and Collaboration with Enterprise Data Modeling Software
Data modelers and architects are tasked with the mission-critical task of taking requirements for data assets and translating those into implementable designs. This has to be with control and within a data governance framework. Whether you are creating a new model from a conceptual model or modifying an existing asset by making changes to reverse-engineered model, user-friendly data architecture and design tools make the following data modeling use cases quicker, easier, more accurate, and more collaborative:
- Performing change management and impact analyses of new policies or projected changes to data models, databases, or data fields.
- Ensuring consistency between data models and database design while coordinating changes across development and BI teams and enabling a collaborative data modeling approach.
- Laying the foundation for robust data governance, data governance frameworks, and data management.
- Building a company-wide Business Glossary to define and catalog data assets and data structures.
- Logical & Physical
- Data Sources
- Model & Metadata

Enable advanced, bidirectional comparisons and merges of model and database structures.
Automatically apply a naming standards template across logical and physical models by binding it to models, submodels, entities and attributes.
Process Model Creation
Design straightforward process models that use standard elements such as events, tasks, gateways, pools/swim lanes, choreographies and conversations, using BPMN 2.0 notation.
Validate your business processes based on BPMN 2.0 standards (in real time or as needed).
Conceptual Model Creation
Create high-level conceptual models using elements such as subject areas, business entities, interactions, and relationships.
Easily export conceptual models to ER/Studio Data Architect to create logical models, and import logical data models from Data Architect.
Model Driven Architecture and Standards
ER/Studio Software Architect supports Unified Modeling Language™, XML Metadata Interchange (XMI®), Query / Views / Transformations (QVT) and Object Constraint Language (OCL).
Powerful re-use facilities to jumpstart projects through predefined patterns.
Round-Trip Database Support
Perform native forward and reverse engineering for multiple RDBMS and big data platforms, both on premises and in the cloud. Extensive platform support is enabled through native and database-specific ODBC connections.
Import model information from BI, ETL, and NoSQL platforms, other modeling tools, and industry-standard metadata interchange formats.
Easily export your models to BI, ETL, other modeling tools, and industry-standard exchange formats such as XMI, XML, XSD, PNG, and JPEG.
Data Lineage Visibility
Leverage visualization for source-target mapping and sourcing rules designed in an external Extract-Transform-Load (ETL) tool or Data Integration (DI) tool.
ETL/DI Tool Integration
Import mapping requirements information to the lineage model from most of the leading ETL and DI tools.
Model Storage and Publication
Store files in the shared model Repository and publish them to Team Server for viewing, when working with the Enterprise Team Edition.
“Concurrent Model and Object Access
Allows real-time collaboration between modelers working on data models down to the model object level with token-based check-in/check-out.
Reviewing Changes and Resolving User Conflict
Resolve conflicts through simple and intelligent interfaces to walk users through the discovery of differences.
Agile Change Management
Assign and track tasks associated with data models to align changes to user stories and development workflows; view and edit tasks in both Data Architect and Team Server, and link projects and tasks to JIRA records
Manages the individual histories of models and model objects to ensure incremental comparison between, and rollback to, desired diagrams.
Component Sharing and Reuse
Predefined Enterprise Data Dictionary eliminates data redundancy and enforces data element standards.
Map between and within conceptual, logical and physical model objects to view upstream or downstream, and specify metadata such as definitions, notes, and attachments
Interactive Model Image Navigator
View the data model image interactively within the Team Server web interface, including zoom, search, and re-positioning functions.
Apply enterprise collaboration features such as activity and discussion streams, to capture and share corporate knowledge and reduce time identifying and correcting data quality issues.
View, classify, relate and centrally store authoritative business definitions in an extensible enterprise glossary of business terms, and associate terms with models and submodels to answer the important question, “What data do I have, and where is it?”.
Ontology and Taxonomy
Arrange business terms into comprehensive ontologies and taxonomies to provide a business-friendly knowledge graph of the metadata of the organization.
Relate business terms to critical data elements including tables, columns, entities and attributes, and view associated Universal Mappings in the detailed description.
Create and view a single searchable registry of all available created or imported data sources.
Data Source Mappings
Track and analyze the impact of data model changes back to affected data sources.
Easily search and filter results for data objects, data sources, glossaries, and terms.
More than 20 out-of-the-box reports and a reporting wizard for ad hoc reports that can be exported to several formats and shared.
Security Center Groups
Streamline security administration with local or LDAP groups.

ER/Studio Enterprise Team Edition Product Benefits
Build a better business-driven
enterprise data architecture
ER/Studio Enterprise Team Edition combines the feature-rich round-trip data modeling capabilities of ER/Studio Data Architect with process and conceptual modeling in ER/Studio Business Architect, a secure model and metadata repository, a collaboration hub for business glossaries, a change management center, and an extensive selection of import and export bridges to access numerous data sources, to provide a comprehensive enterprise architecture suite.
Document business processes
in an easy-to-read diagram
with BPMN 2.0 conventions
ER/Studio Business Architect enables business architects and analysts to easily model the relationships between people, processes, and data with the BPMN 2.0 standard. Use process models to define business operations, including key activities, tasks, and decision points. Use conceptual models to define key subject areas that need to be documented for implementing the business process.
Securely store yourdata models and manage versions in the Repository
The ER/Studio Repository provides a secure and scalable environment for model and object version management. Token-based check-in and check-out ensures that users in virtualized environments have easy access to stored models. The integrated Security Center allows you to manage Groups, Users, and Roles, and assign permissions to Repository projects, diagrams, and diagram objects.
Create business glossaries
with detailed terms and definitions
The ER/Studio Team Server glossaries contain detailed information for business terms and definitions for the entire organization. Business terms are associated with relevant data objects to give business meaning to the technical information. Audit trails are automatically generated for changes made to the business glossaries or their terms, providing details for compliance and governance reports.
Manage model changes and
associate them with JIRA projects
Change management projects can be created, viewed, and edited in ER/Studio Team Server and also associated with existing Atlassian JIRA projects for increased visibility. Track the status and progress of tasks and update the details for individual tasks to ensure data models stay aligned with database and application development efforts using a sprint-based workflow.
