Thank you for using IDERA ER/Studio Business Architect. This is a tool for creating and sharing a graphical representation of your business from the core concepts that describe the business, to the processes that run the business. ER/Studio Business Architect's Process Modeling capabilities allow you to easily model your business processes and model how those processes use data. ER/Studio Business Architect's Conceptual Modeling provides an intuitive way to outline subject areas and concepts that can then drive the creation of detailed data models.
There are several tools available to help you get started with ER/Studio Business Architect:
· Once you install ER/Studio Business Architect, you can import and open the sample compressed workspace that is included with the install (x:\Program Files\IDERA\ERStudio Business Architect X.X\samples\Workspaces\Waterfront Bank). Go to File>Import>Workspace from the main menu.
· For an in-depth tutorial, see the Quick Start Guide which walks you through the creation and use of a basic workspace. This Quick Start Guide is available on the IDERA website at https://www.idera.com/support/productdocuments.

What's New in Version 18.0

In ER/Studio Enterprise Team Edition, there now is an additional prompt allowing you to publish a model that is triggered at check-in or held and not published, if desired. This feature works in conjunction with the new global publishing options in Team Server.
