Evolving with JD Edwards

Haskell delivers Architecture, Engineering, Construction (AEC) and Consulting solutions to assure certainty of outcome for complex capital projects worldwide. JD Edwards has been in use at Haskell for over 20 years. While the underlying JDE system continued to meet their ERP needs over the years, their legacy BI and data management system did not. The company decided to unify its data in a data warehouse to enable faster reporting and analytics from JD Edwards and other corporate data sources.

Leapfrogging Ahead With QuickLaunch and Power BI

After an evaluation process, the Haskell IT group selected Preferred Strategies QuickLaunch for Microsoft Power BI and Enterprise Data Warehouse solution to create a self-service data environment for their hosted JDE system. Key functions include; General Ledger, Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Job Cost, Purchasing, and HR/Payroll. QuickLaunch has transformed how Haskell business users interact with data by enabling self-service BI with IT governance.

“Throughout the entire process, Preferred Strategies has been a true partner to us for our data warehousing and reporting needs,” said Sean Browning, Manager of Business Analytics, Haskell.
