About the Webinar

You might think that the metadata in your large, complex, and customized ERP and CRM applications is too difficult and time-consuming to find and use within your enterprise data models. If you are implementing a data warehouse, data governance, data migration, or other information management project which includes SAP, Oracle, or Salesforce packages, then having access to their data models is critical. You can integrate, manage, and govern your ERP and CRM metadata within your data models to complete the big picture of your data architecture and lineage.

This webinar will briefly introduce the challenges associated with accessing the metadata in these ERP and CRM packages and demonstrate how the combination of Safyr® and ER/Studio tools lets you find and use the key metadata as easily and quickly as if it were a standard database. Being able to use the package metadata in enterprise data models and data lineage will help to accelerate delivery and improve accuracy.
