Data management teams face some tough challenges these days. Organizations need business-driven visibility that enables understanding and awareness of enterprise data assets – without worrying about definitions and change management. But with information architectures evolving, serving up accurately defined, reusable data can become a complex issue.

In this episode of The Briefing Room hosted by the Bloor Group, veteran analyst David Loshin explains the importance of agile, automated workflows in today’s enterprise data architectures. Ron Huizenga of Embarcadero discusses how the ER/Studio suite approaches data modeling and management from a modern architecture standpoint. He explains that unifying the way information is represented can not only eliminate the need for costly workarounds, but also foster collaboration between data architects, developers and business users.
