Oracle eBusiness Suite presents you with some specific challenges when you come to try to make sense of its metadata. For example the physical names for tables and fields can be opaque.

The combination of these characteristics make it very hard for you to navigate and make sense of the data model.

Customers use Safyr to solve the 3 challenges associated with Oracle eBusiness Suite Metadata Discovery.
Discovery: Locating the source of the useful, business ready metadata in your applications. There is very little of any value in the data system catalog. The useful metadata is in a series of data dictionary tables in eBusiness Suite.
Scoping and curation: Once the metadata has been located, the next challenge is to find the table or tables necessary for your task and save them for use in other tools and systems.
Delivery: The final hurdle is to provision the metadata into other tools and technical formats. These include data catalog and governance solutions such as Collibra, Informatica EDC, Alation, Infogix, ASG and Adaptive as well as data modeling tools such as SAP PowerDesigner, ER/Studio, erwin. Or you might want to use the information in Excel, CSV, XML or JSON formats.
