Latest software release, enriched by companion professional services for customizations and integrations, helps organizations improve alignment, compliance and governance
MELVILLE, N.Y., June 20, 2019 – erwin Inc., the data governance company, today announced the general availability of erwin EA/BP powered by Casewise 2018.1. This latest release, developed in response to global enterprise customer needs, includes new performance and scalability features and enhancements and can be deployed on premise or hosted in the cloud.
“Enterprise architecture and business process modeling tools are being employed more strategically across the wider organization to transform some of the most important value streams in the business,” explains Manuel Ponchaux, erwin’s Director of EA/BP Product Management. “Therefore, our customers need more power to process the higher volumes of data they are importing, integrating and analyzing to deliver actionable intelligence to business users so they can optimize journeys, accelerate innovation and realize their digital potential.”
Enterprise architecture and business process modeling are critical for risk management and regulatory compliance, a major concern for financial services customers when it comes to ever-changing regulations on money laundering, fraud and more. However, erwin helps model, manage and transform mission-critical value streams across industries, as well as identify sensitive information. “When thousands of employees need to know what compliance processes to follow, such as those associated with the General Data Protection Regulation, ensuring not only access to proper documentation but current, updated information is critical,” Ponchaux adds.
Also available today are a range of new or enhanced professional services to help customers maximize their EA/BP software investments. These include:
Quick starts: These are 10- to 50-day engagements to install, configure and deploy the erwin EA/BP software and include defining requirements and objectives; designing the metamodel, template and portal; reviewing, assessing and migrating existing collateral; and providing mentoring, support and maintenance.
Custom development: erwin EA/BP solutions can be customized to meet specific customer requirements. The erwin Professional Services Team has worked directly with customers and erwin Product Management to develop detailed use cases with embedded best practices for custom workflows (process change management, object attestation and impact analysis), applications and utilities (audit trail display, user access management and on-demand background actions), outs) and layouts (dynamic pivot tables, network diagrams and reporting, search within diagrams and expanded pop-outs).
Integrations: We can integrate erwin EA/BP with third-party tools, including CAST, Cloud Health, RSA Archer and ServiceNow. We also can help customers integrate with other erwin products, including erwin Data Catalog to ensure metadata from data sources, operational processes, business applications and data models is automatically harvested, transformed and fed into a central data catalog and then made accessible and understandable in role-based views.
Cloud-based trials, extended demos and/or proof-of-concepts: Easy, zero-risk environment for evaluating erwin EA/BP as a first-time user or testing new features so customers can plan their upgrades. This seamless experience enables data to be ported over to a live environment once the trial is complete, whether the solution continues to be cloud-hosted or not.
“Acceleration, speed to insights, that’s what’s driving development and services on all fronts,” explains Wendy Petty, SVP and head of erwin’s EA/BP Center of Excellence. “Increasing regulatory pressure, competitive differentiation, operational excellence, everything in today’s business world depends on quick response but those actions also have to be based on accurate information. Our software suites, including those for enterprise architecture and business process modeling, are helping enterprises be both faster and smarter in managing risk as well as innovating to better serve their customers.”
