ER/Studio 18.0 is now available!

We are excited  to announce the general availability (GA) of IDERA ER/Studio 18.0

ER/Studio 18.0 contains major usability, reliability and performance improvements to streamline upgrades and collaboration.  The major focus of the upgrades is Team Server in particular, as part of the ER/Studio Enterprise Team Edition Suite (ETE).

Team Server & Repository


The Team Server/Repository installation and configuration has been completely overhauled, resulting in a much more efficient install/configuration workflow, ease of use, and much faster completion.

  • Installer will now detect an existing version and upgrade in place (from 16.1 versions and later).
    • Previous process required uninstall and re-install
  • All published diagrams and workspaces are now retained
    • No longer required to republish all diagrams and workspaces
      • This will alleviate weeks of processing in very large customer environments
    • Quick resumption of normal workflow

Model & Workspace Publishing:

ER/Studio Enterprise Team Edition publishing of models to Team Server has been fully redesigned, providing a much improved user experience and productivity benefits. 

  • Publishing has been moved to the main menu
  • Global options for auto-publish behavior (with override capability), resulting in vastly improved usability and workflow during model check-in and publishing from both Data Architect and Business Architect
  • Completely new publishing console that supports:
    • Sortable columns
    • Advanced filters
    • Publication scheduling
    • Publish history and audit trails

  • Database Platforms
    • SQL Server 2012 – 2017
      • SQL Sever 2008 versions no longer supported
    • Oracle 11g – 12cR2
      • Oracle 12cR2 added
    • DB2 discontinued as a hosting platform
  • Operating Systems

Software Architect

 ER/Studio Enterprise Team Edition is a comprehensive, integrated collaboration suite that encompasses data modeling, business process modeling, enterprise architecture and data governance.  The integration of visual models with metadata is critical to enable understanding across all stakeholder groups, enabling governance and business alignment.

ER/Studio is sold in multiple editions:

  • Standalone Products
    • ER/Studio Data Architect – standalone data modeling
    • ER/Studio Business Architect – standalone business process modeling, conceptual modeling
  • ER/Studio Professional Edition
    • Combines ER/Studio Data Architect with a model repository facilitating model sharing, enterprise data dictionaries, version control and cross model integration.
  • ER/Studio Enterprise Team Edition
    • All professional edition capabilities, plus additional model and metadata sharing, integrated business process modeling, UML modeling, enterprise business glossaries, metadata management and data governance.  Other solutions in the marketplace claim to do the same, but are comprised of separate, non-integrated products which are barriers to collaboration rather than enabling teamwork.
