Use Safyr to liberate your SAP MDG metadata for data governance, data catalogue, master data management and other data projects.


Master Data Management partner,  Silwood Technology Limited has announced the availability of Safyr® for SAP MDG metadata harvesting. SAP’s Master Data Governance (MDG) application supports customers who need to combine master data from a number of sources and then manage it effectively.

Safyr for SAP MDG

This release of Safyr adds yet further support for customers who need to incorporate metadata from SAP’s array of complex ERP applications with enterprise data transformation programs. Safyr is the leading ERP metadata harvesting, visualization and discovery software product designed specifically for use by data analysts, data architects and data scientists.

Customers use Safyr to exploit the data structures in SAP MDG systems. This is a critical task for accelerating the effective delivery of a wide range of information-led projects such as data catalogues, data governance, data warehouse, data analytics, master data management, and more.

Technically, SAP MDG uses a Data Model paradigm to define the data structures that are to be the subject of its Master Data Governance features.  Safyr liberates the metadata for these data models by harvesting the SAP MDG tables that define these models. Safyr is particularly valuable if the customer has significantly extended the set of standard SAP MDG data models or has multiple instances to manage.

Gary Allemann, MD at Master Data Management, said, "The trend towards a composite business architecture means that more and more organisations are seeking to access data within SAP and make it available to external analytics and governance platforms, like Data360. This addition to Safyr makes it easier to access SAP MDG data and is well timed."

Safyr for SAP MDG is delivered as part of Silwood’s Safyr for SAP ERP product at no extra cost. It is available immediately to all Safyr for SAP customers who have an existing subscription or are current on support and maintenance.
