Safyr 7.6 enables customers and partners to rapidly provision their data catalog, data governance and other data transofrmation platforms with accurate business friendly metadata from SAP BW/4HANA. This adds SAP BW/4HANA to the list of other SAP, Oracle, Microsoft and Salesforace applications supported by Safyr for metadata discovery, visualistion and curation.

It also helps to facilitate the migration of data for use in new data warehouse and analytics environments. It enables these use cases by providing easy and comprehensive insight into the complex data structures which underpin SAP BW/4HANA.

Roland Bullivant, Sales and Marketing Director at Silwood Technology commented; “We have often found that customers want to start their data catalog project by provisioning their platform with metadata from with SAP BW or, increasingly SAP BW/4HANA. Being able to do this quickly with Safyr means that they can gain early value from the investment in these projects.”

SAP BW/4HANA is a next-generation data warehouse built on the SAP HANA in-memory platform.
