Silwood Extends Application Metadata Intelligence Capabilities With Launch of Safyr® for Microsoft Dynamics AX

Silwood Technology Ltd today announces the release of Safyr® 6.4, the latest version of the world’s most advanced Application Metadata Intelligence solution. Safyr 6.4 includes a number of major enhancements including the ability to allow users to extract and analyse metadata from Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.

Microsoft’s presence in the ERP and CRM packaged application space is growing quickly and Silwood have moved to address the challenge many organisations face when trying to access, understand and exploit the underlying data model of Dynamics AX.

As with virtually all large complex enterprise systems, there is no built in easy intuitive way of finding and comprehending the metadata underpinning Microsoft Dynamics AX. For organisations who are trying to incorporate Dynamics AX data in Data Warehouse, Big Data, Master Data Management, Data Integration, Enteprise Metadata Management and Data Governance projects the problems associated with locating the right data tables often results in delays, overspend and poor quality.

With the release of Safyr 6.4, Silwood has advanced the capabilities of the product by introducing an additional module which provides support for extracting metadata from Microsoft Dynamics AX. This reflects that application’s growing importance as a critical system of record for many organisations. More information is available here:

Amongst other general enhancements to Safyr, Silwood have made significant improvements to the ‘Compare’ functions to make it easier to locate differences between the metadata in two instances of the same package.

Roland Bullivant, Sales and Marketing Director of Silwood Technology commented: “We are delighted to be announcing this new version of Safyr, the world’s leading software product for Application Metadata Intelligence. We have been seeing a steady increase in the number of customers who are seeking to access and understand the metadata in their Microsoft Dynamics AX systems in order to support information and data led projects. Safyr 6.4 is a response to that demand and another major step in our vision to deliver a centre of excellence for metadata discovery, scoping and delivery across enterprise packages.”

Safyr gives control of how and when to access and use application metadata to those who need it most – the data architects and analysts who are charged with delivering information and data management projects of all kinds. It reduces the cost and time required for source data analysis, data preparation and scoping thereby enabling organisations to be more agile, deliver digital transformation projects faster and with more confidence in the accuracy of the data.
