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
