A Case Study Presentation on Data Modeling for SAP Applications

It is essential to understand all relevant corporate data to support critical initiatives such as data warehouse and analytics, as well as governance-focused activities such as data quality and master data management. Data modeling is the means to map the corporate data landscape in order to achieve this level of understanding across traditional relational databases, Big Data, and ERP solutions. A typical first step, is to reverse engineer these databases and data stores into data models. However, most ERP solutions present additional challenges in exposing the foundational metadata. This gap is bridged by utilizing the Safyr tool from Silwood Technology to extract the metadata from the internal dictionaries. This is a vital step for customers who have SAP, Oracle, Salesforce or other ERP and SaaS applications, and need to understand data structures for use with ER/Studio. Using a tool to extract and integrate key ERP metadata reduces cost, time and risk.

This case study presentation will provide insights into why Boeing chose Silwood’s Safyr solution to integrate SAP into their ER/Studio environment, and resulting productivity improvements including:

  • Integrating metadata in their data dictionary
  • Creating submodels to improve navigation of data models
  • Producing master files for data governance
