What Is Team Server
Go Up to Getting Started with Team Server
ER/Studio Team Server is a web-based tool to access, search, edit, and manage enterprise metadata. It provides access to metadata from ER/Studio Repository, and it allows you to manage additional metadata, such as glossaries and terms or data sources.
Team Server allows you to keep track of your metadata and discuss its evolution with other users. It also lets you create reports easily from your data and searches, and export them to different file formats.
Team Server also enables you to:
- Search for all kinds of data, such as data definitions and ER objects in any model published to the shared Repository, including ER/Studio Data Architect and ER/Studio Business Architect diagrams. Team Server has simple and advanced searching capabilities to find ER objects and other resources, as well as their reuse and impact analysis.
- Browse all contents of your ER/Studio Repository database, such as models and dictionaries, in a structured way.
Using a web browser, you can access Team Server internally, via your corporate intranet, or externally, via the internet. This way, you can access all the information you need from anywhere.
ER/Studio Team Server enables companies to implement a business-driven enterprise data architecture. ER/Studio Team Server integrates seamlessly with the ER/Studio Enterprise Team Edition for a comprehensive view of your models and metadata across the organization. Data management professionals use ER/Studio Enterprise Team Edition to easily capture and share models, related metadata, data sources, and glossaries for improved alignment between business and IT.
ER/Studio Enterprise Team Edition provides extensive capabilities beyond ER/Studio Data Architect Professional, which includes the Repository for model collaboration and version control. The additional features includes business glossaries, model and metadata viewing, team collaboration, and more. Refer to the ER/Studio Edition Matrix for more information.
- Data Modelers and Data Architects. ER/Studio Enterprise Team Edition enables data professionals to store their models and metadata created in Data Architect in a shared repository, then publish selected content to the Team Server for visibility to approved members of the organization. Access to the Team Server contents can be easily managed with user-level and group-level security controls.
- Business Managers and Users. ER/Studio Team Server provides the right level of information across the organization. Business teams can view and report on key data items relevant to the business, such as models, metadata, and mappings, in order to facilitate decision-making. They can collaborate with the IT team on the terms and definitions used by the business to ensure the whole organization is aligned to a common vocabulary.
