Today’s blog is about the Comparison features in Safyr®. This is an area of the product that may be not as widely used or understood as we’d like, however it’s very powerful, so this is an attempt to redress that.
WHat exactly is a data lake?
Recently I have been attending some vendor webinars on Big Data, Data Lake strategy, Hadoop in the context of Data Warehousing and Analytics in an attempt to gain a clearer understanding both of the technology platforms available and more importantly some knowledge of the use cases and benefits a business might expect to accrue from them.
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.
This is the latest in an occasional series of data models based upon the packaged application we support with our Safyr product. It is an example of modelling Salesforce application tables with Safyr.
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.
I have been reading quite a lot recently about the applicability of Agile methodologies for Data Warehousing amongst other initiatives and it appears to me that often the topic of source data analysis is under-represented in the literature and blogs so I thought I would discuss the subject of application metadata in an Agile data warehouse world.
This is the third in a series of data models drawn from the various ERP and CRM systems for which Safyr delivers rapid, accurate and usable metadata.
We’ve been providing a solution to get metadata out of ERP and CRM applications for quite a few years now and a common question over that period has been some variation of: “It’s great what you do for SAP (PeopleSoft, Siebel, etc…) – now tell me, can you do the same for our other packaged apps?”
