Safyr for Microsoft Dynamics 365 release announced

Silwood Technology bring support for metadata visualization and processing to Microsoft Dynamics 365 customers.

21st December 2020, Ascot, Berkshire, UK Silwood are delighted to announce that the Safyr for Microsoft Dynamics 365 release will be available from December 21st, 2020. This will support customers who need to be able to understand, visualize and process the metadata in Dynamics 365 for use with data warehouse, analytics, data catalog, data governance and other projects.

Safyr will support any Dynamics 365 or PowerApps module whose metadata is stored in the Microsoft Dataverse (previously known as Common Data Service, CDS).

Roland Bullivant, Silwood’s Sales and Marketing Director commented; “It’s been a while since we added a new data source type to the list of packaged applications whose metadata Safyr can work with.

We’ve had capabilities for Dynamics AX and Dynamics CRM for some time. However, until now we’ve had to turn away customers who wanted to be able to analyze, visualize and share metadata from their Dynamics 365 applications with data catalog, data governance, data warehouse, data modeling and other technology platforms.Illustration of relative market penetration by ERP packages

The increasing number of enquiries for Dynamics 365 we have received reflects the growth of Microsoft as an enterprise packaged application vendor. The release of Safyr for Microsoft Dynamics 365 will help those customers who are investing in this modern application platform”.

Safyr for Microsoft Dynamics 365 uses a third party solution from Pascalcase to extract the application metadata in the Microsoft Dataverse.

Once the metadata is loaded into a Safyr repository the customer can use Safyr’s functions for visualization and analysis to create subsets of the metadata relevant for their project. Then it is easy to share those with other products and in industry standard formats for onward processing.

There is a new blog available with more information about the new release.

Customers can contact Silwood for a call or demonstration of the product or wish to discuss the company’s early adopter program.
