ER/Studio

ER/Studio has a promising future but needs more time to get there.

ER/Studio is competitively priced and shows leadership in terms of integration with metadata management. However, I found the tool cumbersome to work with regarding data modeling. To be more specific, I found the graphics unattractive and it is difficult to navigate moderately large models due to the zoom factor. A feature I was most interested in, Data Lineage, turned out to be not ready for prime time. It was difficult to find documentation and examples online, at least for the use cases I was trying to work.

Implementation was a little confusing, but technical support was outstanding

Initially, it was a little difficult to communicate our vision to the vendor.

Installation was difficult at best

the installation was riddled with pitfalls and difficult processes. it took the solutions consultant and i 2 whole days to get the server and studio up and running

ER/Studio - Functional but not polished and overly difficult to install and upgrade

The tool once implemented is functional but not flawless. The implementation and upgrade process and documentation is flawed and overly difficult for modern software, but there are not many other good supported options for our environment (Netezza and other relational DBs)

ER/Studio

Powerful tool, especially when integrated with Team Server

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.
