Benefits of erwin Data Intelligence Software
The right data points — or facts — lead to information, and information — or context — leads to intelligence. When you know what you need to know – or discover what you don’t know – you can move in the right direction. But the lack of visibility and control over “data at rest” in databases, data lakes and data warehouses and “data in motion” as it’s integrated with and used by key applications means organizations spend a lot more time searching for data instead of analyzing it for meaningful insights.
In fact, data professionals spend 80 percent of their time looking for, preparing and protecting data and only 20 percent on analysis, according to IDC. So if data pros are hampered in data analysis, what does that say about the rest of us? erwin DI improves data awareness, capability and knowledge to support data governance and business enablement.
