A new press release reports, “Metadata discovery software vendor Silwood Technology Ltd has expanded its series of GDPR Starter Packs for major application packages, including SAP, JD Edwards and Siebel. Today’s launch of Oracle E-Business Suite and Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Starter Packs will enable more users to quickly and simply identify the precise location of Personal Data. The GDPR Starter Packs are underpinned by Safyr®, a dedicated metadata discovery software, which enables users to access, understand, share and utilise the underlying data structures for all major application packages. Silwood Technology is urging application package users and its channel partners to ensure that they have, at minimum, instigated the discovery and documentation of personal data before 25 May 2018.”
The release goes on, “Nick Porter, founder and technical director at Silwood Technology, has confirmed that interest in the existing Starter Packs is strong and the reasons are twofold: “Firstly, it is highly unlikely that all organisations will have documented Personal Data in leading packages by the 25 May 2018. Therefore, those that are not fully compliant will need to undertake this work later as part of their data protection programme. As a result, there is an urgency now to find tools to find data quickly and accurately. ‘Secondly, GDPR compliance is not a one-time event. When maintaining compliance, we believe that Safyr will be of value in keeping data catalogues, inventories and glossaries up-to-date with the locations of Personal Data across major packaged applications’.”
