Users are increasingly gaining value from data catalogues, to help them understand what data, relevant to their operational tasks, is held by an organisation. We use Safyr to help catalogue datasets and enrich them with provenance, lineage and related process flow information.
One of the steps on your journey to Cloud may involve Enterprise Metadata Management or the creation of a Data Catalogue. If you have one or more ERP or CRM packages this may present some headaches. The ERP/CRM system will contain a rich set of metadata, which is valuable but sometimes difficult to access.
Retrieving (or chunking) this metadata in an accurate and systematic way is only practically achievable with Safyr which can access metadata from the application layer of each package.
