Master Data Management partner, Silwood Technology, has announced the release and immediate availability of Safyr 7.6 with support for SAP BW/4HANA. This version continues to deliver on Silwood Technology’s strategy to support customers who need to use SAP’s BW product family to derive rapid value from their data and analytics transformation initiatives.
Safyr 7.6 enables customers and partners to rapidly provision their data catalogue, data governance and other data transformation platforms with accurate business-friendly metadata from SAP BW/4HANA. This adds SAP BW/4HANA to the list of other SAP, Oracle, Microsoft and Salesforce applications supported by Safyr for metadata discovery, visualisation and curation.
Using Safyr 7.6 with SAP BW/4HANA reduces the time and cost of provisioning data catalogue or data governance projects with metadata from SAP BW/4HANA. It also helps to facilitate the migration of data for use in new data warehouse and analytics environments. It enables these use cases by providing easy and comprehensive insight into the complex data structures which underpin SAP BW/4HANA.
“Safyr helps organisations to understand the complex data models of their commercial ERP and CRM systems, and to make this data available to the data catalogue or other metadata management tools to add business context,” said Gary Allemann, MD at Master Data Management. “This new version adds enhanced support for the increasingly popular SAP4/HANA data warehouse, accelerating time to value for anyone wishing to build analytics on top of the SAP platform.”
In technical terms, Safyr 7.6 introduces enhanced support for SAP customers implementing their next-generation data warehouse built on the SAP HANA in-memory platform. In particular, the product now extracts and makes available metadata about Advanced DataStore Objects (ADSO’s) and HANA Composite Providers.
Silwood Technology has also introduced additional facilities to save time and increase flexibility by allowing customers to automate their Safyr process. This means that customers can use commonly available tools to schedule the extraction of metadata from source applications, populate subsets and then provision the metadata in other tools.

Master Data Management partner, Silwood Technology, has been honoured with a Platinum Mutable Award by Bloor Research for its one-of-a-kind software, Safyr.
The Mutable Awards recognises IT vendors whose core focus lies in support companies in transforming the business and operations through their products and solutions.
This award recognised Safyr for its unique ability to support enterprises that need to optimise the use of their Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) metadata.
Off-the-shelf ERP applications may have very large, complex data models, often with meaningless table or column names. Safyr reduces the time, cost and resources needed for ERP metadata discovery by as much as 90%, accelerating data preparation and analysis phases in data migrations, business intelligence and master data management projects that depend on CRM or ERP data. Another common use case is to trace personal data within the complex CRM and ERP data models, for GDPR or PoPIA compliance.
Bloor Research considers Safyr a must-have choice for companies that need to understand their ERP/CRM requirements stating: “We don’t often make statements like the following but if you need to understand your ERP/CRM environment you should license Safyr. No ifs, no buts: it’s the only sensible choice.”
Roland Bullivant, Silwood Technology’s Sales and Marketing Director said: “Safyr ingests both off the shelf and custom attributes from your ERP or CRM system, including their business-friendly names. You can then use Safyr to find and subset the critical metadata you need before provisioning it into an enterprise data catalogue and other tools and keep it updated as required. This gives our customers the business context for their ERP or CRM data”
For Master Data Management (MDM), Silwood Technology’s South African partner, the award vindicates the decision to invest in the partnership.
As such, Gary Allemann, Managing Director at MDM commented on the achievement stating, “Safyr takes a complex problem – finding and understanding critical data in off-the-shelf ERP or CRM systems – and makes it easy, even for business users. Safyr’s value proposition is unique and complements investments in data catalogues by making it easy to ingest ERP metadata for governance, for compliance and for analytics.”
