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.
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.
We’ve had quite a bit of interest in our application data model examples from ERPs over the last few months. A number of people have said that they don’t have a modelling tool easily accessible and therefore can’t see what the diagrams look like, which is a fair point.
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.
We’re going to be adding Safyr® for Salesforce capability to our product in the next release (due June 2014) so I wanted to give a taste of what this will deliver.
