INTUITIVE
One View Reporting
 

Does reporting give your organization a headache?
Producing reports from IT systems has always been an issue. System-integrated reporting tools have always been managed by IT professionals, they lacked flexibility and the results were far from satisfactory. On the other hand, reports produced from data warehouses would fail to represent current data as they were fed periodically, and the software itself together with the implementation project would cost a fortune.


The same used to apply for JD Edwares. Reports generated with JD Edwards Report Design Aid have always required a lot of effort, and they don’t look good. An example specification of receivables which is presented below does have the basic information needed by debt recovery personnel, but you can see at once that the design would rather match last century’s standards than the currently prevailing trends.

A more demanding user of such report will certainly ask a lot of difficult questions to the designer:

  • Where are other data cross-sections?
  • How can I check the 10 most heavily indebted customers?
  • Will I be able to quickly compare data from other reporting periods?
  • How to filter the data dynamically?
  • I would like to display the data as diagrams. Can I do that?
  • I need the data in Excel. Can this be exported easily?
  • Can I produce benchmarks by myself on the basis of data I can see in the system?

 

With the scope of tools that used to be available for JD Edwards, the user had to be sent away. This was obviously a source of frustration and conflict between the business and the IT department.
Fortunately, these times are long gone.

OneView REPORTING INSTEAD OF PARACETAMOL
OneView Reporting is a breakthrough in the field of reporting from JD Edwards. This tool allows you to create attractive visual reports, comparisons, diagrams in various formats directly from JD Edwards system views. It supports all the areas of the system and all data views. It does not require installation of any tools on the user’s computer, and the user will only need a short (maximum half-day) training to be able to prepare the reports of his dreams for himself and his peers, based on data downloaded in real time from the ERP system. All this is done intuitively, similar to creating pivot tables in Excel. In addition, to design your own reports in OneView Reporting, you do not need to have expert knowledge of the database, JD Edwards data structure, or programming languages. In just ten or twenty minutes you will get results which you can share with your colleagues if you wish.
