Know where your ERP and CRM systems are storing sensitive personal data for data compliance projects
For compliance with data privacy regulations such as GDPR and CCPA, it’s important that you know where your ERP and CRM systems store Personal Data. This will help you to prove that you are in control of your data and data compliance obligations, and also that you can enact the requirements around an individual’s rights about their data.
You can use Safyr® to find the personal data you need for data privacy compliance in your ERP or CRM systems quickly and easily.
For example, using Safyr it is a simple process to locate all the instances of the attribute ‘birth’ in an SAP system with over 90,000 tables in minutes. That information can then be shared with other data governance or glossary solutions.
As well as SAP, Safyr works with Salesforce, Oracle E-Business Suite, Siebel, JD Edwards, PeopleSoft as well as Microsoft Dynamics AX.
Safyr helps you to discover hard-to-find sensitive personal data rapidly because our metadata discovery technology understands the structure of your ERP or CRM system’s data.
It even works with heavily customized ERP and CRM packages, enabling you to search intelligently for and find the Personal Data attributes you need to support your Data Compliance initiatives.
Key features in Safyr – Supporting Data Compliance
Finding and Marking Personal Data Attributes
Say you need to find all instances of “birth” in an SAP system and then document that information, or use it in your Governance platform.
You can use Safyr to help you do this quickly and accurately. You can use Safyr to search for the text string “birth” across all tables.
This gives you a list of all tables which contain that text. From there you can create a Safyr Subject Area which holds those tables.
Marked field is a feature designed to address the problem of having large numbers of unwanted or irrelevant attributes in some tables.
You can now use Safyr to filter out attributes which you do not need. They may be irrelevant or unwanted for some other reason. For your work with data compliance this allows you to quickly and easily focus on what is important for the purposes of finding Personal Data.
You could combine this Subject Area with others which contain specific Personal Data attributes, for example Address, ID Number, etc. In this way you can build up a picture of which tables hold which personal data for use elsewhere.

The other main feature of Safyr that helps in supporting data compliance is Metadata Reporting.
One of Safyr’s strengths has been the ability to export Subject Area content to a variety of different tools and in a variety of different formats. This has ensured that Safyr has played its full part in Data Modeling, Data Warehouse, Data Migration, Governance and other projects.
Metadata reporting has been introduced to add another important layer of capability to the export features. You can now export a Safyr Subject Area directly to Excel. In addition you have a great degree of flexibility to select exactly what you want to export – including only Marked Fields.
This important addition enhances the value you can derive from Safyr by enabling its content to be more easily utilised and shared with Excel.
