ASCOT, Berkshire U.K., April 3rd 2008 – Silwood Technology Ltd today announced the release of the latest version of Saphir to address emerging requirements for metadata analysis for Enterprise Applications.

Graham Simpson Managing Director of Silwood Technology:

“We continue to see strong & evolving demand for detailed metadata intelligence of Enterprise Applications.

Saphir continues to dominate this market with its support for most of the major packages and we have seen a growing demand for more sophisticated & flexible ways to view & understand the data architecture of these critical enterprise systems.

This demand is clearly driven by the ever increasing pressure for services based systems to support rapidly changing business scenarios.

Such operational & analytics systems can only be effectively delivered when all corporate data sources, including enterprise applications, are fully transparent and able to be understood both in contextual terms and with each other.

Enterprise Application data transparency & integration issues are our lifeblood and we are committed to developing Saphir to meet our customer needs for ever more sophisticated ways to analyse, view & share the data architecture of these critical systems.

Saphir v5 delivers on existing customer demands for domain values & specific new metadata views for SAP & Siebel. Most importantly it is has been re-architected so that new views can be rapidly developed in response to future customer demands.

We have also responded to customer demands for even greater productivity within the Saphir environment and have added faster metadata extraction performance from their target systems and a diagramming feature that allows the rapid preview of subject area ER Diagrams before final export to CASE tools.

Note to customers & partners:

Saphir v5 is available for immediate release.

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