Second Generation of erwin DM NoSQL Strengthens Data Governance Across More Database Platforms

New version integrates with the Couchbase Data Platform; Enables organizations to quickly deploy new cloud apps while maintaining integrity, quality and governance of data

ENTERPRISE DATA WORLD, SAN DIEGO, April 24, 2018erwin, the data governance company, today announced the next generation of erwin DM NoSQL to support native integration of the Couchbase Data Platform for new enterprise applications and legacy RDBMS-based migrations. The solution is 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. erwin DM NoSQL solution reduces the risks and costs associated with new platform adoption and accelerates the time-to-value.

erwin DM NoSQL enables rapid application deployment, cloud infrastructure migration and reverse-engineering of NoSQL metadata so enterprises can discover, understand, govern and socialize NoSQL data. It gives both business and technical stakeholders a complete and contextual view of their document database assets, allowing them to deploy these instances in an efficient and cost-effective way. It also mitigates the risks inherent to managing mission-critical data and enables compliance with expanding regulatory requirements, such as the European Union’s impending General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

“Digital transformation makes extensive use of real-time, unstructured data sources, such as sensor and click-stream data, email logs, social media and the Internet of Things,” explains Martin Owen, Senior Vice President of Products, erwin. “We continue to expand our ‘any-squared’ (Any2) approach, so ‘any data’ from ‘anywhere’ can be used to drive business value while being governed according to the appropriate internal and external regulatory standards. This latest version of erwin DM NoSQL enables enterprises using the market’s top NoSQL platforms to take full advantage of data modeling to accomplish their goals.”

“Legacy relational database management systems are complex and difficult to change, expensive to maintain, and too slow to keep pace with digital business,” said Matt McDonough, Vice President of Business Development, Couchbase. “Now with erwin DM NoSQL native integration of the Couchbase Data Platform, our customers have a solution to support digital transformation initiatives and accelerate migrations from relational data sources to rich, modern and flexible JSON structures with greater accuracy, efficiency and success. Couchbase is already deployed at customers in heavily-regulated industries, and with its encryption, access and control capabilities, customers facing GDPR regulations will find additional benefit to erwin DM NoSQL’s sound documentation and entity relationship mapping that leads to better data quality and compliance.”

Key features and benefits of the latest version of erwin DM NoSQL include:

  • Import and visualize erwin DM relational data models
  • Transform entity relation diagrams to a visual document database representation using our patent-pending Query-Optimized Modeling™
