A recent press release reports, “Silwood Technology Ltd today announced that Informatica Enterprise Data Catalog (EDC) customers can now use Silwood’s Safyr® metadata discovery software to provision SAP, Oracle, Salesforce and Microsoft ERP and CRM metadata directly into EDC. Useful metadata from ERP and CRM packages is notoriously difficult to access and utilise for data and information management projects and is the area in which Silwood Technology is the acknowledged market and technology leader. Silwood and Informatica have been collaborating to deliver this capability, which contributes greatly to the success of customers’ data catalog projects. In this joint initiative, Silwood Technology has developed a specific integration capability in its Safyr software for Informatica EDC. Safyr has been successfully tested in customer implementations and is now available to all EDC users internationally.”
The release continues, “Informatica EDC is an AI-powered data enterprise catalog that provides a machine-learning-based discovery engine to scan and catalog data assets across the enterprise – across cloud and on-premises and big data anywhere. It helps customers to derive maximum value and reuse of data across the enterprise. Safyr is used to extract content-rich metadata from source ERP or CRM packages. The software gives data analysts and architects the ability to navigate, search, analyse and subset that information into Safyr Subject Areas, which reflect business concepts such as Bill of Materials, Sales Order Process or Customer Master Data. These Subject Areas are then exported directly into EDC.”
