Metadata harvesters, data catalogs, and business glossaries help standardize data and create transparency

What is our primary use case?

Our clients use it to understand where data resides, for data cataloging purposes. It is also used for metadata harvesting, for reverse engineering, and for scripting to build logic and to model data jobs. It's used in multiple ways and to solve different types of problems.

Pros and Cons

  • "erwin has tremendous capabilities to map right from the business technologies to the endpoint, such as physical entities and physical attributes, from a lineage standpoint."
  • "Another area where it can improve is by having BB-Graph-type databases where relationship discovery and relationship identification are much easier."

What other advice do I have?

It is a different experience. Collaboration and communication are very important when you want to harvest the value from the humongous amount of data that you have in your organization.

What is our primary use case?

We have different use cases. We have been working with some banks where we are optimizing the loan process and compliance.

Pros and Cons

  • "It is not only a software solution. It is also based on a direct policy. You get a methodology for data governance and the solution that supports this methodology, which makes things much easier. In addition, this is the only solution right now in the market that has an approach directly directed to the value. By value, I am referring to a tangible value raising money. It has an aspect that is called governed by value. We only focus on the data that is actually bringing a monetary value to your organization or your business process. It is so much simpler working around this system. It has a lot of intelligence embedded in it, and it does a lot of things automatically. It just hooks on to your virtual databases, and you are ready to go in hours. It is an all-in-one solution in which you get data governance, data quality, business transformation, and business excellence."
  • "Its interface could be simpler. Sometimes, you need to go through many clicks in order to find something in the software. You need to move from one thing to another to find something."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to anybody interested in data governance. I would tell them to take a look at this solution because if they want to get fast and tangible results, this is the only way to go. It is a pretty unique solution that gives you the ability to have dynamic data governance.

We're facing a new reality that we're not accustomed to. With different objectives, you need different data. Global Data Excellence DEMS makes everything…
