Customers use Safyr to solve the 3 challenges associated with SuccessFactors Metadata Discovery.
Discovery: Locating the source of the useful, business ready metadata in your applications.
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, Precisely and Zeenea as well as data modeling tools such as ER/Studio, erwin or SAP PowerDesigner. Or you might want to use the information in Excel, CSV, XML or JSON formats.
Safyr reveals details of all the tables in a SuccessFactors instance, including any ‘Custom’ tables.
It’s easy to search the tables and to see the numbers of relationships to other tables in the SuccessFactors system.
Each table can be expanded to show all the Fields and relationships with other tables through the Primary Key and Foreign Keys, all based upon the definitions drawn from the SuccessFactors environment.
Safyr extracts Relationship information to help the user understand how SuccessFactors joins tables. Using this information, details of the related tables for a given table can be displayed.
We can help with your Business Case for Safyr.
An alternative way to explore the SuccessFactors metadata in Safyr is via a hierarchy of ‘Components’. This hierarchy puts the tables into the context of functionality, such as those Tables associated with Employee Payment Information.
