CommentaryHere are some practical steps toward instituting a management program to support customer self-service

The Database as a Service (DaaS) model is growing its presence across the virtual globe. Enterprises are asking whether DaaS is mature enough to meet their low-cost and high-security data management requirements using a cloud paradigm. Companies are deploying virtualized applications and, as a consequence, they are asking for Relational Cloud as well. Dynamic scalability, privacy, performance and heterogeneous environments or interfaces to business intelligence products ask for a class of solutions to satisfy the cloud paradigm as a whole. Data modeling supports DaaS in that it provides a clear mapping of the deployed data structures, storage and data topology as well as the core business concepts. In this way, CA ERwin Data Modeler enables organizations to collect and serve data models from and to any web data source and data management system in the cloud.
Data Discovery and Profiling is a relatively new data management technique that uses tools to identify all data sources throughout the organization and unearth the meaning of the information itself. As with any new paradigm, today’s budget holders and decision makers must first be educated on data discovery and profiling and then shown the value it can bring to the organization through a clear return on investment (ROI) analysis.
Read the usability comparative product review by Craig Boyd as he ranks CA ERwin against PowerDesigner and ER/Studio. All three tests involved modeling for a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 environment.
Data modeling is a time-proven method for understanding data, its interrelationships and its rules. Data management professionals have long understood the value of data modeling. However, business professionals often don’t understand the value of data modeling. So how can you demonstrate to business management the return on investment (ROI) of data modeling? Read this white paper and find out.
In today’s information-driven economy, more and more organizations rely on business intelligence (BI) applications to make strategic business decisions. A BI report is only as good as the database on which it is built, however, and a data model is key to understanding both the business and technical requirements behind the construction of a BI solution. CA ERwin and SAP BusinessObjects BI solutions provide a powerful combination to produce best-of-breed reporting and analytics, along with with robust data modeling and database design capabilities.
