MicroStrategy, a provider of business intelligence software, has announced that several of its VAR partners have developed pre-built business intelligence applications for the JD Edwards World and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne user community using the MicroStrategy BI platform. Oracle's JD Edwards World and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne are suites of enterprise planning software.
MicroStrategy's platform provides companies with easy access to JD Edwards data for enhanced reporting and analytical capabilities. Numerous MicroStrategy VAR partners have developed packaged reporting and analysis applications for JD Edwards customers. These applications, which include pre-defined dashboards, reports, and key performance indicators, enable JD Edwards customers to seamlessly uncover, access, and analyze important business information.
MicroStrategy has many JD Edwards customers among its own customer base and MicroStrategy's partners have been supporting the JD Edwards community for years, observes Michael Lutito, director of VAR programs at MicroStrategy. With the increased headwinds caused by the global economic challenges, he adds, now more than ever there is increased scrutiny on performance, making robust reporting and analysis a critical requirement.
The BI applications delivered through its VAR partners allow JD Edwards customers to extend the value of their JD Edwards investment. Among the BI applications offered by MicroStrategy partners, Lancet Software provides business intelligence and reporting applications, including General Ledger, Sales Order Processing, Human Resources, Manufacturing, Purchasing, and Inventory. Lancet also provides reporting capabilities over Salesforce.com and specializes in working with healthcare, manufacturing, and several other vertical industries. "Lancet has worked with numerous JD Edwards clients to develop high-value MicroStrategy dashboards," says Tom Niccum, president and CEO at Lancet Software. "The dashboard capabilities within MicroStrategy 9 allow us to give managers and executives greater insight into their data in ways that can impact their business decisions."
Another partner, ManageForce has developed multiple business applications for the JD Edwards market, exclusively using MicroStrategy's business intelligence platform. The applications provide reporting and dashboard capabilities for many of JD Edwards most widely deployed modules.
RapidDecision has over 200 JD Edwards customers and 18 BI applications for the JD Edwards market, and provides real-time reporting over JD Edwards and delivers fixed-fee implementations in 5 to 10 days per application. Additionally, GSS Group delivers data integration capabilities to the JD Edwards market. Its product, VIGILANCE Xpress, prepares data for reporting and analysis using a simple and intuitive user interface.
