Symtrax Announces StarQuery 3.1, for JD Edwards, a Robust Real-Time Business Intelligence Reporting Solution

StarQuery 3.1 for JDE-An ad hoc querying tool that automatically adjusts for JDE Database quirks enabling end-users to create comprehensible queries directly with Excel.

Boston, MA, May 13, 2009 --( Symtrax Corp. Today announces StarQuery for JDE; a solution focused on empowering users to export and analyze data in real-time, enabling better decision making and increased productivity. StarQuery for JDE empowers JDE end-users by automatically adjusting for JDE Database quirks such as decimal placement and date format. Business Intelligence applications, such as StarQuery began making headway in the late 1980’s as businesses required a better way to analyze their internal data in order to make more effective business decisions. Business has since changed but Business Intelligence is still a top priority. Gartner stats that, “the economic downturn forces businesses to be aware of changes in their organizations, re-think their strategies and operating plans and face demands from stakeholders and governments for greater transparency about finances, operations, decisions and core performance metrics.” Gartner goes on to predict, “Through 2012, more than 35 per cent of the top 5,000 global companies will regularly fail to make insightful decisions about significant changes in their business and markets.” Having a thorough understanding of your company’s data will play an important role in a company’s success.

StarQuery leverages your company's database expert allowing them to create a view of your database that contains recognizable field names and is limited to just the fields needed. End-users use the views to create and execute queries from within Excel as needed or queries can be pre-built and run anytime with just one click. Advanced users can take advantage of StarQuery 3.1’s ability to drill down within a query and see multidimensional real-time views of their data.

StarQuery for JDE utilizes a unique JD Edwards native extension giving StarQuery increased functionality for JDE ERP users. Using the Symtrax extension for JDE users can automatically change date format (to Julian format), properly record decimals, and add end-user friendly table and field descriptions.

“This new StarQuery Suite version, compatible with JD Edwards ERP, is a complete and reliable Business Intelligence solution facilitating JDE ERP understanding in automatically rendering changes to users. Its intuitive interface and its drill down functionality efficiently improve our customers queries”, emphasizes Bernard Aldebert, Managing Director of Symtrax. “This new solution reasserts StarQuery Suite’s uniqueness within the BI market.”

StarQuery Suite doesn’t require a data warehouse or modifications to your current IT infrastructure. It can be installed in a few minutes; users experience quick ROI from the real time, multidimensional navigation.
