What comes before data extraction? In any data intensive project be it a data warehouse, data migration, master data there is a data discovery phase which has to be completed before any movement of data can be performed.
New supported package for safyr
We’ve been working hard on a new capability for Safyr®. This is in the form of a metadata extraction feature to enable customers to quickly and intuitively access and exploit the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 data model.
Of all the blogs we’ve written here at Silwood, by far the most popular are the ones that are about specific Data Models for SAP, Salesforce and Oracle packages (JD Edwards, E-Business Suite, Siebel and PeopleSoft).
It was interesting to read the announcement about Salesforce’s latest price hike which amounted to about 40% here in the UK and about 20% in the US. (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/05/23/salesforce_uk_40_per_cent_price_hike/)
Introduction to Safyr for Salesforce
Salesforce has an easy-to-use data modelling feature in the Schema Builder. This provides a graphical data modelling interface to the Salesforce metadata, allowing the user to choose which Objects to include in the diagram, and with zooming and navigation features.
This is the latest in an occasional series of data models which will give some insight into those common business areas in SAP and ORACLE applications for which data models are often required for Information Management projects.
This is an interesting blog by Steve Lucas, President of Platform Solutions at SAP.
As many of you will know, using Safyr® we can pull metadata from a range of ERP and CRM products, including SAP, Salesforce and PeopleSoft. Customers often ask about other packaged applications that they have implemented.
Well…er…Yes, and No. We get this comment lots of times. It’s sometimes hard to explain the difference. Strictly speaking, we do ‘metadata discovery’. I like analogies.
We would like to congratulate IBM, Informatica, SAP and Oracle on their continued strong showing in the latest Gartner Magic Quadrant for Master Data Management (MDM) of Customer Data Solutions.
