McKinsey Global Institute recently reported that data-driven organizations are:
When data is made easily accessible to the person closest to the business challenge.
Nearly every JDE customer uses the Finance modules (AP/AR & GL) and QuickLaunch makes quick work of financial reporting and analytics. QuickLaunch works equally well with your operational role modules; Manufacturing, Sales, and Payroll/HR. QuickLaunch shines with specialized job function modules; Inventory Management and Procurement. And QuickLaunch also works in specialized industries such engineering and construction with the Job Costand Contract Billing modules and in agriculture and viniculture with our Grow & Blend module support.
One of the biggest challenges of JDE data is how unfriendly it is to business users. While the IT team may know that MCMCU stands for Business Unit and ABAN8 is actually the address number, if you are to become a data-driven organization you must extract that tribal knowledge and make your core JDE data more accessible to every business user.
Just because you are implementing a self-service data environment to enable your organization to become more data literate does not mean that you should relax your data governance and security policies. And the good news is with QuickLaunch you do not have to. We make your JDE data available to the authorized individuals or groups with support for Active Directory and ensure only authorized users can see the data that they have been given permission to view.
It is important when implementing a modern reporting and analytics strategy at your organization that you can demonstrate a quick win to your senior stake holders. QuickLaunch will help with our pre-built models that produce many of the KPI dashboards your management team will expect in a matter of days or weeks rather than months or years for home-grown solutions.
Managing As of Aging financial reports can be particularly challenging when you are trying to close the books of a multi-divisional business whose divisions have grown through acquisition and are not on the same fiscal year as the parent organization. This traditional finance headache is a breeze with QuickLaunch which handles complex calendaring tasks without breaking a sweat.
Getting your arms around your JDE data is one thing but often to drive specific business insights you need to combine JDE data with other data sets. Traditionally this required complex Extract Transform and Load (ETL) processes. With QuickLaunch on board transforming data becomes much easier which means you’ll see results sooner.
For many JDE based organizations deciding how to retire complex and expensive on premises data warehouses or data marts is an important strategic decision. QuickLaunch works equally well on premises, in the cloud or even in a hybrid environment. What’s more, QuickLaunch will add value to your migration to the cloud by making cloud-hosted JDE data more accessible to business users in-house or in the field via mobile devices. Everyone will be able to make data-driven decisions more quickly and transform your business.
