Embarcadero Expands Flexibility for Data Modelers with ER/Studio Enterprise 8.5
Latest release adds UML and enhanced collaboration and reporting capabilities
SAN FRANCISCO - Oct. 7, 2009 - Embarcadero Technologies, a leading provider of multi-platform database tools and developer software, today announced the general availability of ER/Studio® Enterprise 8.5. This newest version of Embarcadero's leading data modeling tool combines process modeling, data modeling, application modeling and reporting into a comprehensive design and modeling solution.
The new enhancements now available in ER/Studio 8.5 help data architects streamline the model review process between developers and business users and automate the communication of data lineage between systems. The newest version also enables data architects to centralize process and data models, and document software architecture. The culmination of these advancements enable information and data architects to easily understand, design and communicate software, data and enterprise architecture across the organization for improved traceability, collaboration and data reuse.
"Reliability, performance and innovation matter with data modelers, and that's why every day we see ERwin® users switching to ER/Studio," said Michael Swindell, senior vice president of marketing and products, Embarcadero Technologies. "Architects need tools that are trusted to deliver results when time is at stake. Data management teams simply can't afford downtime or loss of productivity using inferior and unreliable tools. 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."
Additional features now 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 collaborative, integrated and secure environment
- New workflow communication facilities with web 2.0 technologies like bi-directional commenting between ER/Studio® Data Architect and ER/Studio Portal to assist and streamline communication and model review with non-modelers
- Object labeling within the ER/Studio Portal to categorize and tag related content

- Update DBMS features for the latest editions of Oracle®, SQL® Server, DB2® LUW, InterBase® and Teradata

ER/Studio remains the fastest growing database design and modeling tool on the market by expanding organically and attracting new customers from users of competing tools, such as CA ERwin, who are looking for modeling and design tools to resolve their complex data management challenges.
