Silwood Adds Collibra to Fast-Growing Reseller List

Collibra will resell Silwood Technology’s Safyr self-service metadata discovery software, under a partnership arrangement between the two companies. The accord will enable financial institutions to draw metadata from their SAP, Oracle, Salesforce and Microsoft ERP and CRM packages into Collibra’s Data Governance and Catalog solutions.

Safyr provides a single source of intelligence for users who need quick access to enterprise data, allowing them to navigate, search, analyse and subset information into specific subject areas, reflecting business concepts such as Bill of Materials, Sales Order Process or Customer Master Data. UK-based Silwood developed a specific integration capability for Collibra within the Safyr software, allowing the user to populate the Collibra Catalog directly with multi-source metadata.

According to Stan Christiaens, Collibra co-founder and chief technology officer, “Collibra approaches metadata management from a holistic data governance perspective, which captures both business and technical metadata. This enables users to understand the complete enterprise context and lineage of their data to gain business value. This is especially critical today as organizations are looking to derive value from their many big data initiatives, as well as comply with data protection and security regulations, and drive new technology trends like AI.”

The deal marks Silwood’s third major reseller agreement in as many weeks, coming hard on the heels of partnerships with US-based IDERA and South Africa’s Milestone Technologies. It highlights the firm’s appetite for expansion within the fast-growing global data governance market, which is expected to swell by 22% per year over the next five years to reach $3.53 billion by 2023, according to a recent analysis from CIO Review, driven by an increasingly rigorous regulatory climate.
