ISLANDIA, N.Y. – CA (NASDAQ: CA) today announced a new release of its market-leading CA ERwin Data Modeling Suite, delivering an unmatched combination of integrated data modeling, data profiling and powerful reporting capabilities at a very affordable price. The integrated capabilities and affordability allow data architects at midmarket to Global 2000 companies to reduce time, cost and complexity in providing timely, accurate information to the business.

“In an information-driven and financially-challenged economy, companies large and small need an effective and affordable way to tackle data management challenges,” said Sean Graham, vice president, software engineering for data modeling at CA. “CA is providing data architects with comprehensive, integrated and easy-to-use profiling and modeling tools, at a significantly lower price point than has traditionally been available.”

All the new products and enhancements in the CA ERwin Data Modeling Suite extend CA ERwin Data Modeler’s value as the hub of customers’ data management initiatives by providing a robust set of tools around the core data modeling solution—from reporting, to collaboration, to metadata management—so that data modeling is able to integrate with other tools and business initiatives.
