SAFYR V6 LAUNCHED

ASCOT, Berkshire U.K., March 12th 2013

SAFYR v6 Launched

Silwood Technology Ltd today announces the latest release of their world leading metadata discovery tool for enterprise application packages. This major release coincides with the completion of its rebranding program of Saphir to Safyr.

Graham Simpson Managing Director of Silwood Technology commented:

“This latest release and rebranding of Saphir to Safyr v6 are important stages on our development path, both as a company and our technology.  As a company we are moving forward on a number of strategic relationships that required us to work with Industry Analysts to rethink our Branding and Trademark positions. As a product we are now mainstream in many enterprise data centric solution areas, with Safyr v6 continuing to uniquely deliver critical metadata discovery capability on the leading application packages from SAP and Oracle as implemented.

Such a position makes increasing demands on us to continually improve the effectiveness of SAFYR discovery capabilities and this release delivers on 2 critical areas.

Firstly we have provided the ability to work with ERP source table row count information, enabling analysts to more rapidly and efficiently determine the key subject areas for their projects.

Secondly we have engineered Safyr to handle Unicode allowing us to extract metadata from the supported ERPs in non-western character sets such as Cyrillic and Kanji.

We will continue to develop our ability to help organisations gain more from their investment in Enterprise software packages through successful Data Warehouse, Business Intelligence, Data Integration and Migration, Master Data Management and Application rationalisation projects.”

SAFYR v6

Silwood Technology announce the immediate availability of SAFYR v6 with the following major enhancements.

Unicode support

Safyr can now work with systems implemented in a Multibyte environment.  This encompasses both the Safyr repository and the source ERP systems, where those systems support Multibyte databases.  The major benefit of this feature is in being able to extract metadata from the supported ERPs in non-western character sets (e.g. Cyrillic and Kanji).

New Row Count feature

Safyr can now extract row count information for the tables in an ERP. This is achieved by looking at the database system tables for those systems implemented in Oracle Microsoft SQL Server and IBM DB2.

The Row Count information is presented as a new column in the Safyr Model Overview.  This makes it very easy to filter out tables that have zero rows, or to look for tables with, for example, at least 10,000 rows. The Row Count feature can also be used when looking at related tables, allowing only those Parent and/or Child tables with data to be viewed for a given table.

A major benefit of the Row Count capability is in rapidly scoping the tables in an ERP to only those containing data.

Note to customers & partners: SAFYR v6 is available for immediate release.

Please contact support@silwoodtechnology.com for full information on functionality, support for specific Enterprise Applications and upgrade procedures.

SAPHIR FOR SAP AND JD EDWARDS ENTERPRISEONE RECEIVES THE INFORMATICA SEAL OF APPROVAL

ASCOT, Berkshire U.K. (PRWEB), June 26th 2012

Silwood Technology Limited, developer of Saphir, the leading metadata discovery solution for the major ERP and CRM applications from SAP and Oracle has received the Informatica Marketplace Seal of Approval (www.marketplace.informatica.com) for the SAP (https://community.informatica.com/solutions/1769) and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne (https://community.informatica.com/solutions/1889) variants of their product.

This accolade represents additional industry recognition of the value of Saphir in making it easier and faster to accurately pinpoint the exact tables required to help customers deliver critical data-oriented projects. The Informatica Marketplace Seal of Approval is the result of a rigorous testing and validation process lasting up to 30 days by the Informatica Marketplace Certification Team. The validation process is based on a variety of criteria, including functional specifications, assessment of architecture and methodology as well as the validation of specific use cases with product demonstrations.

“This announcement is further testimony to the value of our unique approach to metadata discovery in the world’s largest and most sophisticated ERP and CRM applications from SAP and Oracle”, says Graham Simpson, Managing Director of Silwood Technology. “We give customers the ability to easily make use of the metadata in their SAP and Oracle applications to speed up the delivery of a variety of projects including, Data Warehouse, Business Intelligence and Analytics, Master Data Management, Application Rationalisation and Consolidation, Data and Application Integration, as well as Data Archiving and other Application and Information Lifecycle management initiatives. Combining the functionality of Saphir with the capabilities of Informatica’s market leading products allows customers to have greater confidence in their ability to further leverage their investment in applications from SAP and Oracle without spending long periods in the data discovery phase of a project.”

Saphir works by connecting to and extracting all the metadata from the target application which can be SAP, SAP BW, JD Edwards, PeopleSoft, Siebel and Oracle eBusiness Suite. The metadata extracted includes all customisations, relationships between tables and in different languages if appropriate. Typically this process takes less than three hours after which time the user has full access to all the metadata information and can use Saphir’s intuitive functionality to rapidly search and filter the information into meaningful subject areas which can then be exported for use with Informatica products as well as with a variety of other modelling and metadata management tools. By making the metadata available to non technical specialists outside of the application environment Saphir allows for easier sharing and re-use of metadata helping it to become a more valuable corporate IT asset.

“The Saphir Metadata Discovery Blocks represent excellent examples of the tools and utilities available on the Informatica Marketplace that help customers execute their data integration initiatives more quickly and easily,” said Scott Geffre, senior director, Cloud Business Operations and Marketplace, Informatica. “By achieving the Seal of Approval, prospects gain confidence in knowing that the Saphir tools have been validated by Informatica engineers and that they meet our quality standards.”
