A Case Study on
Data Modeling for SAP Applications

Wednesday, October 28, 2015
9:00am Pacific / 12:00pm Eastern / 4:00pm United Kingdom

Critical IT initiatives and projects such as Data Warehouse, Big Data, Master Data Management, ETL, Data Integration and Migration, Data Governance, Data Modeling, Enterprise Architecture and others all share a common challenge. These programs need the ability to access and understand the metadata which are the underlying foundations of the Enterprise Applications which hold much of the data required.

Customers who have ERP applications such as SAP, Oracle or Salesforce and need to understand data structures can reduce cost, time and risk by using a tool to extract and integrate key metadata for use within ER/Studio. Join this case study presentation to learn why Boeing chose Silwood’s Safyr solution to integrate SAP into their ER/Studio environment, with productivity improvements including:

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

Can you trust your Enterprise Data? Where is it? What is it? Where did it come from?

Presented by Embarcadero Technologies and Informed Decisions

Organisations face continued significant growth in complexity, diversity and volume of enterprise data with more and more companies worldwide understanding that data governance offers the only strategic solution to this challenge. Enterprises drowning in data and disconnected from trusted data repositories need to break out of organisational silos and re-establish adequate coordination and controls. Metadata Modelling, Governance & Syndication technology enables collaborative content development and effective access to your Enterprise Information Map, the authoritative guide to an organisation’s information assets. By providing greater insight into the location, meaning and proper use of enterprise data, organisations can improve corporate data compliance and utilisation. Business users can now locate, interpret, and accurately utilise data as an enterprise asset thereby adding real value to the business. This workshop explores these issues and provides a pragmatic approach to resolve modern data architecture challenges.

HakkanJulian Clemas-Howard: Betfair
Julian has nearly 20 years of Data Architecture and Management experience providing his services to most of the UK’s Mobile Telecommunications companies as well as organisations in the Insurance and Utilities sectors. He was part of the team that bought Virgin Mobile to the market as the first MVNO in the UK; it was here that he developed his passion for Data Warehousing and where he developed his first Enterprise Logical Data Model. He considers himself very much as a ‘hands-on’ architect, equally at home in the boardroom as embedded in a Scrum team. Julian believes that data warehousing is even more important today as organisations are moving away from traditional ‘monolith’ data warehouses to a more distributed landscape where agility (in all its guises) is the new frontier for Data practitioners.
