: CA Technologies to Deliver ERwin Data Modeling Solution for Microsoft SQL Azure

Oct 11, 2011 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced CA ERwin Data Modeler for Microsoft SQL Azure, a powerful new solution that helps customers manage and integrate their database infrastructure with the Microsoft SQL Azure cloud database environment.

Many customers have concerns about moving their data to the cloud, fearing the potential complexity, and risk of designing and deploying systems in an off-premise environment. CA ERwin Data Modeler for Microsoft SQL Azure enables customers to make fact-based decisions about which data to move to the cloud and which to keep on premise, by empowering them to easily: Create an inventory of data assets, including both cloud and on-premise databases, using a single visual interface; Migrate from on-premise databases, such as Microsoft SQL Server, to cloud-based databases, such as Microsoft SQL Azure; and Maintain their cloud-based databases using a familiar desktop data modeling paradigm, eliminating the need for specialized skills or training.

"Maximizing the benefits of the cloud is challenging if you do not fundamentally understand the data that currently exists, let alone which data would best reside in cloud property," said Mike Crest, general manager, Data Management, CA Technologies. "CA ERwin Data Modeler for Microsoft SQL Azure provides visibility into data assets and the complex relationships between them, enabling customers to remain in constant control of their database architectures even as they move to public, private and hybrid cloud environments."

An early preview of the product, which is scheduled for availability in the first quarter of 2012, is available here.
