ObjectRiver announced that the latest release of its Master Data Management solution has been ca smart certified as interoperable with CA's AllFusion ERwin Data Modeler r7.

The story started 18 months ago, Bill Bogansky, VP Sales and co-founder of ObjectRiver shared with DM Review when ObjectRiver began as a metadata compiler. They went to various organziations and asked for their data models and found that  a vast majority (60-70 percent) were done in ERwin. From there, ObjectRiver MDM was developed to seamlessly integrate with ERwin and provides additional functionality for ERwin.

CA's AllFusion ERwin Data Modeler is an industry-leading data modeling solution that streamlines the creation and maintenance of databases, data warehouses and enterprise data models. Starting with a business data model, ObjectRiver Master Data Management generates a data access layer that enables real-time updates and reduces database programming complexity. By integrating with AllFusion ERwin Data Modeler, ObjectRiver's MDM also helps customers generate a data dictionary from the AllFusion ERwin model that provides a documented interface for building Web applications on top of a defined database.

"CA's AllFusion ERwin Data Modeler is a natural starting point for creating Web/SOA-based applications because the vocabulary of the business is actually contained in the data model, " said Steve Lemmo, CTO and founder of ObjectRiver. "Our relationship with CA gives IT managers the benefit of advanced modeling capabilities to optimize their Operational Data Store. It also allows Java developers to use standard interfaces rather than time-consuming low-level SQL code, giving them more time to focus on business logic."

The ca smart seal of excellence is awarded to products that integrate seamlessly with CA products, enabling customers to take advantage of best-in-class enterprise technologies while minimizing cost, time-to-benefit and risk.
