Silwood Technology is a privately owned British software company. Founded in 1992, it was originally the first reseller for Logic Works’ ERwin data modelling tool in Europe. Silwood Technology then sought to establish a unique position in the enterprise modelling space by exploiting its experience of working with SAP metadata for ERwin. The company decided to focus on delivering a new way to solve the problem of gaining meaningful insight into the underlying data structures in ERP and CRM packages from SAP and Oracle and providing that information to other tools.
Having this information is critical to the timely delivery of data warehouse, data integration and master data projects. In recent times solving this challenge has become even more important due to the success of data governance, data catalogue, and data privacy initiatives.
Silwood released the first version of Safyr for SAP in 2002. Support for SAP BW, JD Edwards, Oracle eBusiness Suite, PeopleSoft, and Siebel followed. Subsequently, the product has been extended to support Microsoft and Salesforce applications.
Silwood uses both direct and indirect routes to market. Notable blue-chip reseller and OEM partnerships include Collibra, Idera Inc, IBM (Optim), Infogix, erwin Inc, ASG Technologies, and Adaptive Inc. amongst others. The company is a certified partner of SAP and has technology partnerships and integrations with Informatica, Salesforce, Microsoft, Alation and Solidatus.
