Embarcadero releases new version of data modeling tool

Adds UML capabilities, and automates model reviews and data modeler feedback

By CBR Staff Writer

Embarcadero Technologies has released ER/Studio Enterprise 8.5, a new version of data modeling tool  that combines process modeling, data modeling, application modeling and reporting into a design and modeling tool.

The company claims that the newly released ER/Studio 8.5 helps data architects streamline the model review process between developers and business users and automate the communication of data lineage between systems. The new version also enables data architects to centralise process and data models, and document software architecture.

The company said that the culmination of these advancements enable information and data architects to easily understand, design and communicate software, data and enterprise architecture across the organisation for improved traceability, collaboration and data reuse.

According to the company, features available in ER/Studio Enterprise 8.5 include integration of ER/Studio Business architect with the ER/Studio Repository and ER/Studio Portal to understand and design process, conceptual, physical and logical models in a secure environment; new workflow communication facilities with web 2.0 technologies such as bi-directional commenting between ER/Studio Data Architect and ER/Studio Portal to assist and streamline communication and model review with non-modelers.

Other features include object labeling within the ER/Studio Portal to categorise and tag related content; new UML modeling features for business and software modeling; update DBMS features for the latest editions of Oracle, SQL Server, DB2 LUW, InterBase and Teradata.

Michael Swindell, senior vice president of marketing and products at Embarcadero Technologies, said: “Reliability, performance and innovation matter with data modelers, and that’s why every day we see ERwin users switching to ER/Studio. ER/Studio 8.5 delivers new features and technologies that expand its enterprise architecture and UML capabilities, automate model reviews and data modeler feedback, and improve team and enterprise collaboration and communication.”
