Silwood Technology Ltd. which provides self-service metadata discovery software to simplify and speed up the exploitation of data in large, complex enterprise application packages, has announced a global reseller agreement with IDERA, a provider of powerful database productivity tools.
Through this agreement, IDERA will market and resell Safyr® to complement its ER/Studio data modeling and architecture product suite. The combined offering allows customers to bring metadata from SAP, Salesforce, Oracle and Microsoft ERP and CRM systems into ER/Studio more rapidly and effectively than using traditional discovery approaches.
As enterprises invest in data transformation, analytics and governance initiatives, it is increasingly critical that they are able to exploit the information they have in their ERP and CRM packages. One of the hurdles to delivering these programs is the unique nature of the metadata landscapes underpinning these systems. Their large, complex, opaque and customised data models often hamper development unless software driven self-service metadata discovery tools are employed.
Safyr is a unique software product designed to allow data modelers, architects and analysts to access and make use of the metadata in these systems without needing deep technical knowledge. Content from Safyr can be used directly with ER/Studio to accelerate development and delivery of a variety of data and information management projects.
"IDERA is thrilled to offer the Safyr solution directly to our ER/Studio customers who are working with these key CRM and ERP platforms. Having access to this complex package metadata gives data professionals improved visibility into data lineage across the entire data landscape. This extends the powerful capabilities of ER/Studio even further, to serve as the focal point to manage all of their data architecture and governance initiatives," said Mark Berglund, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales at IDERA.
"Organisations across all industries must identify new ways to innovate to compete and meet regulatory requirements. Data is increasingly recognised as a key asset in meeting these objectives and delivering compliance. Metadata is a key foundational component to this and Safyr's ability to provision ER/Studio with relevant data models helps to accelerate the delivery of these initiatives," said Roland Bullivant, Sales and Marketing Director of Silwood Technology. "We already have a number of mutual customers who are leveraging the strengths of Safyr and ER/Studio and are excited to be working more closely with IDERA on promoting the combined value of our solutions."
As a result of this agreement, IDERA will boost its ability to support customers who have invested in ERP and CRM systems, enabling them to unlock even greater business value from their SAP, Oracle, Salesforce and Microsoft packages.
