Portal Now Included with Enterprise Edition of Embarcadero's Industry-Leading Data Modeling Tool Suite

The ER/Studio Enterprise Portal home page lets users get started right away

This move ensures our customers have this valuable reporting asset with every instance of ER/Studio, enabling them to search for and understand corporate data using a Web-based method that's already familiar to them.

Embarcadero Technologies®, a database tools and software developer tools company, is releasing a new version of its ER/Studio™ Enterprise Portal and announcing it will now include the Portal as a standard component of the company's popular ER/Studio Enterprise data modeling tool.

New with this Portal release are a high-speed search engine, configurable synchronization between the Portal mart and repository server, and access to "favorites" widgets on the home page. Also, each ER/Studio Enterprise licensee - new or existing - will be eligible for a user Portal license that can be used independent of their concurrent licenses.

By providing metadata, business rules and data models in a centralized, searchable reporting structure like ER/Studio Enterprise Portal, companies can improve collaboration among their data architects, DBAs, developers and business users to ensure a common understanding of data used in the enterprise. Through the Portal, users can also attain global visibility into their corporate data assets and understand how they are being accessed via business processes, the state of data in use versus at rest, as well as the whereabouts of critical and sensitive data.

"With the Portal, we're extending the value of metadata across organizations and enabling a centralized and collaborative work structure that promotes data re-use and standardized leveraging of data assets," said Michael Swindell, vice president of products for Embarcadero. "This move ensures our customers have this valuable reporting asset with every instance of ER/Studio, enabling them to search for and understand corporate data using a Web-based method that's already familiar to them."

ER/Studio Enterprise Portal is a Web-based reporting tool for accessing and searching the ER/Studio repository for enterprise metadata to improve data and metadata management practices. The Portal is accessed internally via a corporate intranet or externally via the Web for cross-model and repository-wide searching of data definitions and objects. It includes standardized HTML reporting capabilities and structured browsing in the repository.

Version 1.1 of the ER/Studio Enterprise Portal release builds upon the first release with the following new feature and benefits:

  • A discrete license that can be dedicated to a user or group of users for Portal access independent of the concurrent license
  • An updated search engine that incorporates the Apache Lucene information retrieval library for high-performance, full-text search functions
  • Configurable synchronization between the Portal mart and repository server
  • E-mail capabilities and "favorites" tagging for search results and reports
  • Access to "favorites" widgets on the home page
  • A configuration manager for changing parameters of the application server without reinstalling the application
  • Enhanced synchronization (ETL) interface that gives administrators more control over synchronization options
  • Stylistic and usability improvements to the Portal's user interface

ER/Studio Enterprise and Portal, along with Embarcadero's other modeling-focused products, are now also available through the Embarcadero® All-Access™ "toolbox." All-Access provides an innovative and economically friendly approach to software tooling by providing a complete collection of application and database development tools with flexible and cost-effective licensing.
