    Product(s): ER/Studio

    Powerful tool, especially when integrated with Team Server

    Overall Comment

    ER/Studio Data Architect provides a full-featured tool for creating and integrating data models. It goes beyond being merely a data model design tool, though. It allows for the documentation of data lineage, data transformation, and data movement, to allow you to really create an enterprise-wide view of all of your data assets and how they relate. When used in conjunction Embarcadero Team Server, it allows you to perform version management and shared development of the models. Publishing models to the Team Server repository facilitates disemination of the data dictionary, glossary, and other metadata to the entire organization.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Breadth of features Integration with Team Server

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Insufficient documentation/tutorials on how to use some of the advanced features, including practical examples

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    We would do a better job of creating the metadata for the models from the onset of creating the models, instead of going back after the fact and adding definitions, data lineage, data transaformations, and data movement. It would have provided this information to the user community earlier and saved us time from having to go back in and document these pieces, especially when a lot of this had been documented in other formats not related to the models.
