The data governance company
Industry and government are challenged to ride the Big Data tidal wave, trying to manage both the massive risks and opportunities that come with high-volume, high-velocity and high-variety information assets.
Like any corporate asset, data must be inventoried, cataloged, protected and made accessible for:
• Operational efficiency
• Revenue growth
• Compliance, privacy and security
• Increased customer satisfaction
• Improved decision-making
At erwin, data has been our business for a long time. It’s all we do. Given our expertise and our customers’ needs, we’re focused on data governance as the guiding principle and underlying technology to mitigate risk and maximize data’s upsides for peak business performance.
For more than 30 years, erwin Data Modeler (DM) has been the first choice of CDOs, CIOs, data architects and other IT professionals. Government agencies and the most discerning financial institutions, retailers and healthcare companies around the world have depended on us to power their mission-critical applications.
Our proven track record and the opportunity to become a preeminent player in the data space led Parallax Capital Partners to purchase erwin and establish it as a private, stand-alone company in March 2016. Since then, we’ve acquired enterprise architecture (EA) company Corso, business process (BP) modeling company Casewise, and data harvesting technology and data governance (DG) consulting services company A&P Consulting.
These acquisitions, along with significant investment in R&D, have culminated in a unified software platform centered around data governance with integrations to EA, BP and DM. The erwin EDGE creates an ‘enterprise data governance experience’ to deliver on the Data Governance 2.0 imperative: the collaboration of IT with the business to produce data-driven insights, agile innovation, regulatory compliance and business transformation.Download the erwin fact sheet.
While questions of cybersecurity and regulatory pressures, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), have elevated its profile, data governance goes beyond just risk management. It’s about understanding critical enterprise data within a business context, tracking its physical existence and lineage, and maximizing its security, quality and value.
erwin’s approach to data governance enables organizations to get a handle on how they handle their data with greater visibility, context and control. The right data of the right quality – regardless of format or location – is available for use by only the right people for the right purpose.
