ASCOT, Berkshire U.K., May 25th 2012

Silwood Technology Ltd, a GOLD level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced it has achieved Oracle Validated Integration of Saphir 5.5 with Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.0.

Silwood Technology’s Saphir can help extract table, field and relationship information, including customizations from JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications, enabling customers to gain valuable information from the available metadata.

This helps to reduce the cost of data discovery in a broad range of projects, including JD Edwards upgrades, rationalizations, migrations, data warehousing, analytics, integration and governance.

To achieve Oracle Validated Integration, Oracle partners are required to meet a stringent set of requirements that are based on the needs and priorities of the customers.

Saphir has been proven to work with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne implementations, including those which have been highly customized, without causing disruption to the application.

Saphir users can search, analyze and filter the JD Edwards’ metadata using the intuitive, functionally rich interface and easily integrate the results with other third party technologies.

Application metadata can be shared and reused across different teams and projects ensuring that the value from the customer’s investment in Saphir is maximized.

Graham Simpson, Managing Director of Silwood Technology Limited remarked: “Silwood Technology has worked with Oracle’s JD Edwards customers for many years and we are delighted that Saphir has been able to meet the requirements for Oracle Validated Integration. We are confident that this will help customers gain even more value from their investment in JD Edwards.”

“Oracle Validated Integration applies a rigorous technical review and test process,” said Kevin O’Brien, senior director, ISV and SaaS Strategy, Oracle.

“Achieving Oracle Validated Integration through Oracle PartnerNetwork gives our customers confidence that the integration between Saphir 5.5 and Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.0 has been validated and that the products work together as designed. This helps reduce risk and improves the implementation cycles for our joint customers.”
