We developed Safyr® to enable our customers and partners to dramatically shorten the time to value for Information Management projects which involve data from large complex packaged enterprise systems from vendors such as SAP, Salesforce and Oracle by reducing the cost and resources needed for ERP metadata discovery whilst at the same time improving accuracy and compliance.
Safyr® is the industry’s only dedicated metadata discovery software for packaged applications. Safyr gives analysts, architects and other data professionals the ability to access, understand, share and utilise the underlying data structures for these applications, whenever they need to without having to rely on technical specialists, external consultants, incomplete documentation, internet searches or partial technical solutions.
Safyr achieves this by extracting metadata from the applications as implemented and storing it so it can be easily navigated, searched, filtered, analysed, visualised using business terminology rather than needing to know physical table names. There are many tools that can ‘reverse engineer’ a database by connecting to the RDBMS system catalog, but Safyr does this for application packages by ‘reverse engineering’ from the package’s own data dictionary tables. This is the only practical way to get an understandable view of the package data model.

The results are a significant reduction in the time and cost associated with finding and using the detailed metadata information. One user reported that Safyr helped them to reduce the amount of resource it took them to find tables associated with transaction codes in their SAP system from 4 people for 4 weeks to 1 person in less than a week, representing a productivity improvement of over 90%. “After doing a quick prototype metadata extract from SAP, the response to the insights SAFYR provides has been very positive! I’m really grieving for the lost years without access to this tool. It has met and exceeded my fairly lofty expectations.” (Brian Farish, AMD)
