Research this month from MindMetre Research shows that 89 percent of organizations believe they need to gain greater insight into their growing volumes of unstructured data to improve their commercial advantages and gain a competitive edge.

Connect The Dots: Embarcadero Technologies’ Update Integrates Metadata Governance Repository Knowledge With Its Database Tools
Embarcadero Technologies has an update of its database tools – ER/Studio, DBArtisan, Rapid SQL, DB Optimizer and DB Change Manager XE5 — that among its new features includes integration with its Connect metadata governance repository. Connect, which The Semantic Web Blog covered here, keeps all the information about an enterprise’s data — what it means and where it is – to bridge the gap between the work of governance teams and that of day-to-day operations.

It is effectively the first instance of collaboration, syndication and integration across ER/Studio, Embarcadero’s data architecture and modeling tools, DB PowerStudio database development, administration, and performance tuning solutions, and Connect. “That’s a deep theme for us because it is a perennial problem in large organizations to make the work of the data architect team more broadly available,” he says, “and to make others more aware of the data assets and better able to use them.”
