CA ERwin Receives Highest Ranking in Leading Analyst Firm’s Data Discovery Report


CA Cited by Bloor Research as Clear Leader among Data Modeling Vendors

ISLANDIA, N.Y. – CA (NASDAQ: CA) today announced that CA received the highest ranking from Bloor Research in the premier “Champion” segment of its Data Discovery Market Update. The CA ERwin Data Modeling Suite earned the ranking based on the best combination of overall benchmark scores and innovation among 21 vendors.

“Data Discovery solutions need to support data quality and complement data modeling so they can support business intelligence, data migration, data archival and data governance,” said Philip Howard, research director, Data Management at Bloor Research. “By adding CA Data Profiler to its CA ERwin Data Modeling Suite, CA is responding to these requirements and is the clear leader in Data Discovery among data modelling vendors.”

Bloor defines data discovery as the discovery of relationships between data elements ― regardless of where the data is stored. Data Discovery is important when implementing Master Data Management (MDM) and other data management initiatives. Data profiling supports Data Discovery by helping to discover these relationships.

“We are pleased that Bloor has recognized our efforts to help data architects support business-critical data management initiatives,” said Sean Graham, vice president, software engineering for Data Modeling at CA. “Our aim is to continue to provide innovation that helps them cost-effectively ensure application data can be leveraged effectively to help drive business success.”
