Silwood Technology and IDERA Partner to Extend Metadata Solutions

Silwood Technology Ltd., provider of self-service metadata discovery software, is entering a global reseller agreement with IDERA, a provider of 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.

Safyr is 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.

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.

“IDERA is thrilled to offer the Safyr solution directly to our ER/Studio customers who are working with these key CRM and ERP platforms,” said Mark Berglund, senior vice president of worldwide sales at IDERA. “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.”
