Share Article

Safyr now give users additional analysis capabilities to accelerate data projects using Salesforce and Force based applications by adding row count function. Safyr enables improved communication and collaboration in data intensive projects through vastly improved Entity Relationship Diagrammer.

Silwood Technology Ltd today announces the release of Safyr 6.3, the latest version of the world’s most advanced solution for accelerating data intensive projects through user-enabled source data analysis of the largest and most complex Enterprise applications from SAP, Oracle, Salesforce and others.

Not understanding how the underlying data model for a large packaged and often customised system from SAP, Oracle, Salesforce and others is structured puts at risk the delivery of Data Warehouse, Big Data, Master Data Management, Data Integration and Data Governance projects.

Safyr is unique in its ability to rapidly reverse engineer meaningful metadata from these applications in a few hours or minutes and then make it immediately available for data and enterprise professionals to search, navigate and find exactly what they need in the context of the project.

Safyr 6.3 brings further enhancements to its already impressive capabilities. There is a new interface which makes the product even faster and more intuitive to use.

In addition, Silwood have brought to market a completely reworked version of their Enterprise Relationship (ER) Diagrammer tool which makes the task of communicating complex models containing the relevant tables and relationships with business and IT colleagues easier and more effective.

One of the most popular features of Safyr has been the recently introduced capability to provide a row count for each table in a system. This helps to filter tables with no data, for example, which often reduces the time it takes to find the required tables. Silwood have now extended this facility to Salesforce and Force based applications.

Finally, Silwood have incorporated an additional Subject Area data model sharing capability by adding a generic XML export option. This will make it easier for Safyr content to be consumed by a broader range of 3rd party tools and solutions.

Roland Bullivant, Sales and Marketing Director of Silwood Technology, commented:

"We are delighted to be bringing this new version of Safyr to market. It is a further step in our mission to enable our customers and partners to be able to find and understand the data models of their large and complex packages, which are a fundamental requirement for the delivery of any data related project.

Being able to quickly and accurately answer the question, ‘where’s the data?’ is a fundamental challenge which is often omitted or forgotten until it becomes critical.

Safyr helps our customers to answer that question by putting metadata into the hands of those who need it. This reduces the risk of delay, overspend and under-delivery, which are regularly associated with large data focused projects.

Safyr supports the drive for agility and greater utilisation of data within large organisations by providing transparency into opaque data models which underpin their enterprise systems, whether they are on premise or cloud based.”

Safyr v6.3 is available for immediate release.
