Frequently Asked Questions

What benefits do I get from erwin CloudCore’s approach of combining enterprise architecture and data modeling?

Most enterprise architecture tools have a very limited awareness of enterprise architecture. By combining enterprise architecture with data modeling, you can document and visualize data structures and integrate them into your enterprise architecture. The result is better collaboration across your enterprise and a deeper view into your architecture while realizing greater efficiencies and cost savings.

What differentiates erwin CloudCore from other enterprise architecture offerings?

erwin CloudCore is the only product to offer deep data modeling that helps you transform your organization into a data-driven business. It also takes an agile approach to enterprise architecture that enables organizations to focus on high-impact architectural analysis and transformations without spending unnecessary time and effort building low-value architectural elements.

Why would I consider a SaaS-based tool for my enterprise architecture?

By using a SaaS-based tool versus a traditional, on-premise tool, your upfront investment will be lower, your expenses will shift from being capital expenditures to operating expenses, and you’ll spend less time installing, configuring and maintaining the software.

Do I have to run erwin CloudCore as a SaaS application?

Yes, cloudcore is a SaaS offering only currently - the alternative is that we can provide a Bring Your Own License (BYOL) option and environment for erwin DM purchased and maintained licenses. Please consult your sales representative.
