With ER/Studio, the roadmap to send us new versions with the new database is slow. I think it could allow us to test and use new database versions faster. Sometimes we get new functionalities like, for example, the Collibra integration. We receive these new functionalities, and sometimes we start to test them and we find errors that we need to correct by talking with tech support. I think they allow functionalities to be released before the full tests for catching and correcting errors are completed. My other point is about the team server. We're using the web portal, and the interface is not so good. The client was modified, and we have the new version. It's good. The client is good to us, but the web portal is using the old UI. It's not as modern, and it's limited. We found that the new version is slow when compared to the older version. We are trying to investigate what component is causing the slowness, because you have the client access, the repository, the API, the team server, and the web portal. Getting a single sign-on feature is very important to us.

What needs the most improvement are semantic lineage and usability.

The model diagram because very clumsy when you save it on the team server and the models are very big. It becomes difficult to enlarge and difficult to print. Although they say that it supports concurrent users, we have issues while branching, merging, and performing check-in or check-out. It's not as seamless as it should be. Now that we are all working from home and our repository is on the cloud servers, we are experiencing issues with performance. In general, support for big data should be improved.

The visual presentation is a little too colorful and seems that it is dumbed down. I would like to see support for creating macros in the way that erwin can. It did not reverse engineer all of the data types correctly, although it was pretty close. The only mistake was with some Oracle table objects, where it incorrectly determined them to be character references.

I am currently using the trial version, but this solution is definitely worth considering for the price point.

My advice to anybody who is considering ER Studio is to look at the size of their models. If they have very large models then it may not be suitable because we are having performance issues in this case. On the other hand, if they have midsized models then I think it is pretty good. Overall, this product is pretty good. It can certainly be better but it still has features that are quite good. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
