At erwin, data is their business. They invented data modeling and have been working with global enterprises and government agencies to deploy their complex data sources for more than 30 years. Seeing their challenges with data proliferation and increasing regulatory pressures, they decided to expand their technology portfolio to include enterprise architecture, business process modeling and data governance. After all, data is an asset that underpins every application and process and therefore must be inventoried, cataloged, protected and made accessible in the right context, so the right employees can act on it in the right ways. As the data governance company, erwin provides enterprise modeling and data intelligence software to help customers discover, understand, govern and socialize their data to mitigate risks and realize results.
Creating policies for data handling and accountability and driving culture change so people understand how to properly work with data are two important components of a data governance initiative, as is the technology for proactively managing data assets.
