Enterprise information management software and services firm
emphasizes holistic data governance for client success
MELVILLE, N.Y., May 7, 2019 – erwin, Inc., the data governance company, and Avydium Data Software Solutions, LLC are working together to help enterprises accelerate their digital transformation efforts, including those focused on analytics, data warehousing, cloud migration, application rationalization, data curation, regulatory compliance and data privacy.
Avydium is an enterprise information management (EIM) software and services firm helping clients modernize, enhance and/or augment how they manage and use their data. With significant engagements in the financial services, healthcare and manufacturing industries, the company evaluates everything about the current state – hardware, software, people, processes and data – to develop a detailed data strategy/plan plus the optimal organization to support the desired future outcome.
“Most digital transformation efforts fail due to lack of planning and/or insufficient business requirements and poor organization,” explains Rom Linhares, Chief Solution Architect and Managing Partner for Avydium. “It’s about having the right roles and responsibilities in place to support a data governance framework so data can be understood and shared across the enterprise. That’s why erwin’s data governance software is a key component of the data governance layer we implement for our clients as part of their detailed, prioritized technology roadmaps.”
For example, if a healthcare client wants to integrate its various patient databases within a data lake, this client will need to standardize how it refers to medications within its EMR (Electronic Medical Records) systems. Some EMRs refer to the technical drug name while others refers to the brand name (atorvastatin versus Lipitor, a commonly prescribed statin used to treat high cholesterol). erwin Data Catalog could be used to automatically harvest all the drug names and map them back to the central data catalog, reconciling the terms and determining their lineage and any impacts to changing the data design.
Another success factor in the erwin-Avydium partnership is that erwin’s enterprise architecture and business process modeling solutions are standard tools to facilitate and accelerate system modernization and cloud migration. “Without erwin EA and erwin BP, our clients would be left guessing as to whether they’ve identified and mapped out all their systems and processes prior to modernizing their applications or moving to the cloud,” notes Linhares.
“We’re excited about the opportunities to work with Avydium on such important projects,” says David Casillo, erwin’s Senior Vice President for Global Channels and Enterprise Sales. “While healthcare literally has critical data governance use cases like the one above, most industries face similar challenges in trying to modernize their architectures so they can take advantage of the latest technologies to serve customers, save money and comply with industry and government regulations. The erwin and Avydium difference lies is our ability to avoid typical digital transformation failure points, accelerate project delivery, and fortify technology frameworks with best-in-breed, collaborative and contextual tools.”
In addition, both companies have deep subject-matter expertise and share similar values in how they treat customers. “We’re not pushing technology for technology’s sake. Our shared goal is to help our clients solve their problems, so we put on their badges,” says Linhares. Adds Casillo, “We’re not going to provide you what you don’t need but focus on discovery, evaluating your current state, understanding your vision, and determining what you need to make it a reality from a data governance and EIM perspective.”
