erwin, Inc. Celebrates Two-Year Anniversary as an Independent Software Provider

Investments, acquisitions and innovation transform data modeling legacy into serious player in the Data Governance market

MELVILLE, N.Y., April 17, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- erwin, Inc. is celebrating two years as a stand-alone software company, following private equity firm Parallax Capital Partners' acquisition from CA Technologies in April 2016. During the past 24 months, the company has completed three acquisitions, made significant investments in R&D, launched its EDGE data governance (DG) platform, and rebranded itself as "the data governance company."

"When Parallax completed its acquisition of erwin, we knew we had a tremendous foundation with the industry's number one data modeling solution to build upon, "said Adam Famularo, CEO, erwin, Inc. "Over the past two years, we have turned this vision into reality – transforming erwin from a popular software tool into a standalone company that is now positioned as a serious player within the data governance market."

The company has made three acquisitions: 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 across three continents, 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 that lead to agile innovation and business transformation while ensuring regulatory compliance.

The company also released erwin DM NoSQL, the first and only enterprise-class solution to provide native (non-relational) data modeling for document databases, automating the creation of platform-specific deployment scripts, to strengthen data governance. The solution was named a DBTA Trend-Setting Product for 2018.

"It has been said that data is the new oil," continued Famularo. "However, if organizations don't know where their data is, who is accessing it, and ensuring that it is governed and secure it can lead to the next major 'oil' spill – threatening non-compliance with regulations like the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), fines, stock decline, loss of customer trust, and ultimately a tarnished brand. With the deadline for GDPR quickly approaching and with major breaches and questions of data privacy and use in the headlines, data governance has never been more relevant."

To help organizations successfully launch and navigate effective data governance journeys, erwin released the 2018 State of Data Governance Report, which indicated broader awareness and enterprise focus for data governance, and identified challenges in terms of understanding, executive support and financing. The report also found that a bare 6% of North American enterprises said they are prepared for the upcoming GDPR regulation.

The company has also developed and released its DG RediChekTM to help organizations determine their state of DG readiness. The easy-to-use, free tool includes a comprehensive questionnaire covering the areas most critical to DG readiness and therefore the ability to achieve regulatory compliance, as well as improve customer satisfaction and decision-making among other objectives for the data-driven enterprise

erwin's loyal customer base continues to expand, with hundreds of new logos added since the company's launch. With customer satisfaction as its number one priority, erwin is proud that its Net Promoter Score®, which measures customer experience and predicts business growth, is more than double the software industry average. The company also continues to win industry awards including a Top 100 Company by DBTA, 5-Star Rating in CRN's 2018 Partner Program Guide, DBTA Readers' Choice Award for Data Modeling, and 2018 CRN Channel Chiefs recognition for its SVP for Global Channels and Inside Sales, David Casillo.

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.
