Ascot, Berkshire UK, November 1st, 2013
Silwood Technology Limited today announced its SAFYR® version 6.0 solution for rapid discovery and scoping of metadata has achieved SAP-certified integration with the SAP® ERP application running on the SAP HANA® platform. SAFYR is a metadata discovery tool that enables organizations to extract and analyze the metadata found within their SAP software. The tool helps organizations speed their information management projects, with trust in the resulting data.
The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that SAFYR 6.0 integrates with SAP ERP 6.0 powered by SAP HANA. SAFYR provides customers with a means to browse and understand SAP data tables in SAP ERP running on SAP HANA. Tables and relationships can be located easily and placed into subject areas. The subject areas can then be used by range of enterprise architecture, modeling and metadata tools including SAP Sybase® PowerDesigner® software, with which it helps to deliver a complete collaborative, model-driven approach to managing data architectures. Only metadata is read and then transferred to SAFYR by using ABAP® -based functionality provided by the SAFYR connector.
“We are delighted to announce SAFYR 6.0 has certified integration with SAP ERP running on SAP HANA,” said Graham Simpson, managing director, Silwood Technology Limited. “SAP HANA represents a huge leap forward in enabling companies to further realise the business potential of their solutions and in enterprise information management projects. We are pleased that SAFYR will be able to assist customers to leverage the most value from their investment in SAP ERP running on SAP HANA.”

The solution can deliver accurate metadata, even with customised systems, and can allow the results to be used with other tools such as SAP Sybase PowerDesigner software as well as data-integration solutions.
