Who We Are

The Data Management Experts

Our lives revolve around information, as both consumers and generators. With the world’s total amount of data projected to rise to 44 zettabytes or 44 trillion gigabytes by 2020, it’s safe to say that Big Data is a fact of life – and business.1 Do you have the right technology not just to manage your mission-critical information but extract real value from it? Without fact-based insights from across the enterprise, your ability to create new products, improve productivity and influence customer behavior will be compromised. Let erwin help you use your data as a strategic asset and transformational tool for differentiation and growth.

Strong Legacy with a New Vision

For three decades, 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 have made erwin the central hub for their enterprise data. Our proven track record and the opportunity to become a leader in the global Big Data market led Parallax Capital Partners to purchase erwin and establish it as a stand-alone company in March 2016.

Since then, we’ve acquired enterprise architecture (EA) company Corso and business process modeling company Casewise, integrating their technologies into our roadmap to provide end-to-end data management. erwin’s vision, as the data management experts, is to help customers use their data as the powerful denominator it is to produce the desired results. Data drives every C-suite goal, so it’s not just for the data people. Turns out, we’re all data people.

Innovation, Really

The word “innovation” has become a bit cliché – or maybe we’re just accustomed to technology driving societal change that makes our lives better (e.g., Amazon, Netflix and Uber). We just take advantage of it without giving it too much thought. But as a technology company, innovation remains an imperative. It’s who we are and what we do, so we’ve doubled our R&D investment with software developers and programmers on three continents. We’re also building world-class sales and service channels to ensure the best customer experiences from purchase through delivery and ongoing support.

According to Forbes, a Fortune 1000 company could earn an additional $65 million with access to just 10 percent more of its data. Thanks to erwin’s “any-squared” (Any2) approach to data management, both IT and business stakeholders can see “any data” from “anywhere” and use it to make faster, better decisions. This is the value of our open-source solutions that comprise the industry’s only unified data management platform with data modeling, enterprise architecture, business process modeling and data governance.
