Safyr for SAP screen shots
from demonstration session
Safyr: Application Metadata Discovery
Safyr – a unique software proposition
• Software to make ERP/CRM metadata
easy to access, understand and share
• Data professionals can explore
metadata in large packaged applications
• Does this by extracting metadata from
the ERP/CRM data dictionary
• Not just an ’interface’ – more than just a
scanner for ERP or CRM’s
“The data in these (ERP) systems makes sense
and are useful, but only in the context of the hard-
coded processes.
In short, the data is trapped inside a complex web
of thousands of database tables whose integrity is
solely controlled by a rigid fossilized collection of
software algorithms.
If you don’t believe me, just ask your SAP support
staff for access to directly update (or even read) a
data table.”
John Schmidt (vice president of Global
Integration Services at Informatica
Corporation)
Why use Safyr?
• Shortens time to project value
• Cuts cost of data discovery
• Improves trust
• Reduces risk
• Gives control to data professionals
“As a result of our investment in Safyr
we are able to take a more agile
approach to meeting the demands for
new reports and data within acceptable
timescales and the business’ trust in
the information they provide is
growing”.
Scott Delaney
BI Team Leader
Demonstration session
• The following are screenshots captured from a live demonstration of Safyr
• Safyr works by extracting the meaningful metadata from ERP and CRM
packages and making it usable by data professionals who do not need to
be application specialists.
• The demonstration is based on an SAP ECC system with over 98,000
tables.
• Without Safyr the sort of analysis and results achieved would take much
longer, cost more in terms of money and resource and may not be
accurate
Main Safyr screen
In the first part of the
demonstration we are
trying to locate some of
the key Customer
Master Tables and find
out how they are
related.
Select “Show List of
Tables”
Selected Show List of
Tables and clicked
Search.
Results: 99864 tables
in SAP system,
including
customisations
Searched for tables
with string ‘customer’in
table description.
Results: 1185 tables
Select “Advanced
Search” to further
reduce the results set.
Selected “Advanced
Search”
Filtered to return
results only from tables
with data
Filtered by only tables
with data
Results: 256 tables
On the assumption that the most important tables will have the most
relationships we rank those results by “Number of Child tables”.
KNA1 (General Data in Customer Master) is top result. Double click to
drill into detail and then see related tables
Further filter number of related tables by selecting “Only with data”.
Then select group of Child tables which are relevant to use to
create Subject Area.
A Subject Area in Safyr is any grouping of tables which are
appropriate to the analysis being performed.
Created Subject Area called “demo master tables”
16 member tables as selected from previous screen
Now we want to visualise the results in a model.
In this example we are using Silwood ER Diagrammer tool to
display the content of the Subject Area.
Subject Area in ERP Diagrammer. Results limited to Primary and
Foreign keys only to aid viewing
Table relationship automatically provided.
Now a different use
case for Safyr.
This is a different type
of search for Personal
Datas (GDPR related)
Reset the Search to
show all tables.
Using Advanced
Search features:
We are looking to find
any attribute in any
table (with data) which
has string “Date of
Birth” across whole
SAP system
Result: 5 tables
We can select all of
these and create
another Subject Area
called “DOB Marked”
Selected all and
created Subject Area
called DOB Marked.
Notice how the
number of times the
string (marked field) is
found in each table
Selected Table
PA0002 HR Master
Data Record to see
detail
Detail of 3 instances
of “Date of Birth” in
PA0002 HR Master
Data Record table.
Here we illustrate the
result of exporting the
Subject Area “DOB
Marked” to Excel
using Safyr Metadata
Reporting option
More information is
provided in each tab.
Main Safyr screen
In the next part of the
demonstration we will
show how Safyr be
used to locate the
Tables related to a
specific SAP transaction
or programs and find
out how they are
related.
Select “Show Hierarchy”
This provides a
different view of SAP
system using Safyr
Hierarchy showing
application modules.
Multiple layers.
Very large number of
nodes
To aid navigation there
is a search feature.
Here we have
searched for any SAP
transaction which
includes the string
“compare sales”
3 results
Selecting VAO7 will
place us in the
application hierarchy
where that exists.
(next screen)
We can see that VAO7
is part of the
Comparison of Orders
with Purchase Req
program
The tables used by
that program are listed
underneath.
Then it is easy to
select all the tables for
that program and add
them to a new Subject
Area for export or
further analysis.
New Subject Area
called “Compare
Sales Orders” created
Individual Subject
Areas can be viewed,
searched and filtered
from the Table View
Showing “compare
sales orders” as
created in previous
screen.
Thank you for watching.
As you can see from the tiles
on the right there are areas
which are not included in this
short demonstration.
If you would like to learn
more about how Safyr can
give you real visibility into
the data models of your ERP
and CRM packages, or you

yourself, please visit

  • 6. Selected Show List of Tables and clicked Search. Results: 99864 tables in SAP system, including customisations
  • 7. Searched for tables with string ‘customer’in table description. Results: 1185 tables Select “Advanced Search” to further reduce the results set.
  • 8. Selected “Advanced Search” Filtered to return results only from tables with data
  • 9. Filtered by only tables with data Results: 256 tables
  • 10. On the assumption that the most important tables will have the most relationships we rank those results by “Number of Child tables”. KNA1 (General Data in Customer Master) is top result. Double click to drill into detail and then see related tables
  • 11. Further filter number of related tables by selecting “Only with data”. Then select group of Child tables which are relevant to use to create Subject Area. A Subject Area in Safyr is any grouping of tables which are appropriate to the analysis being performed.
  • 12. Created Subject Area called “demo master tables” 16 member tables as selected from previous screen
  • 13. Now we want to visualise the results in a model. In this example we are using Silwood ER Diagrammer tool to display the content of the Subject Area.
  • 14. Subject Area in ERP Diagrammer. Results limited to Primary and Foreign keys only to aid viewing Table relationship automatically provided.
  • 15. Now a different use case for Safyr. This is a different type of search for Personal Datas (GDPR related) Reset the Search to show all tables. Using Advanced Search features: We are looking to find any attribute in any table (with data) which has string “Date of Birth” across whole SAP system
  • 16. Result: 5 tables We can select all of these and create another Subject Area called “DOB Marked”
  • 17. Selected all and created Subject Area called DOB Marked. Notice how the number of times the string (marked field) is found in each table Selected Table PA0002 HR Master Data Record to see detail
  • 18. Detail of 3 instances of “Date of Birth” in PA0002 HR Master Data Record table.
  • 19. Here we illustrate the result of exporting the Subject Area “DOB Marked” to Excel using Safyr Metadata Reporting option More information is provided in each tab.
  • 20. Main Safyr screen In the next part of the demonstration we will show how Safyr be used to locate the Tables related to a specific SAP transaction or programs and find out how they are related. Select “Show Hierarchy”
  • 21. This provides a different view of SAP system using Safyr Hierarchy showing application modules. Multiple layers. Very large number of nodes
  • 22. To aid navigation there is a search feature. Here we have searched for any SAP transaction which includes the string “compare sales” 3 results Selecting VAO7 will place us in the application hierarchy where that exists. (next screen)
  • 23. We can see that VAO7 is part of the Comparison of Orders with Purchase Req program The tables used by that program are listed underneath.
  • 24. Then it is easy to select all the tables for that program and add them to a new Subject Area for export or further analysis. New Subject Area called “Compare Sales Orders” created
  • 25. Individual Subject Areas can be viewed, searched and filtered from the Table View Showing “compare sales orders” as created in previous screen.
