Silwood Technology has expanded its metadata discovery capabilities for SAP customers, who can now use Safyr to analyse the metadata behind SAP Abap Core Data Services (CDS).
This new release of Safyr demonstrates Silwood Technology’s commitment to keeping Safyr aligned with SAP. It is especially important to adapt to SAP’s data management in its core application software.
Silwood’s Safyr software has been helping customers accelerate delivery of key data and information projects involving SAP since 1992. It does this by providing data analysts and architects with the ability to easily access and analyse SAP data.
Customers can reuse the rapid insights gained across a wide range of other platforms and technologies. Safyr also delivers the same benefits to data projects involving other leading packages, such as Salesforce, MS Dynamics AX, and Siebel.
Data dictionary infrastructure
CDS is a data dictionary infrastructure that helps customers to define and consume semantically rich data models. It aims to increase performance and reduce development time for SAP applications. Furthermore, it promotes a more data centric approach in SAP applications. It also pushes intensive computations in to the database through complex views and functions.
For data professionals, the benefits of CDS come at the cost of a more complex and difficult to understand underlying data structure. This consequently increases the time and effort required to execute data migration and integration projects.
Safyr will accelerate the delivery of information and data management projects which require this depth of analysis. For data professionals, the new capability allows for tracing the origins of data used in CDS Views. It is able to do that even through the multiple layers of nested views in SAP’s Abap Core Data Services.
Safyr customers will be more easily able to access, understand, share and utilise the metadata in multiple CDS View layers using the same Safyr interface.
Nick Porter, Technical Director of Silwood Technology, comments, “Our technical team continues to develop Safyr to deliver insights and visibility into the most complex SAP environments.”
