The GL Company Announces the Availability of its New Really Real Time(R) Inquiry Suite for the Oracle(R) E-Business Suite

- Live demonstrations at Oracle OpenWorld - Long-time provider of real- time inquiry for Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and W

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The GL Company, a certified member of the Oracle(R) PartnerNetwork and the leader in the Accounting Intelligence market, announces the availability of the Really Real Time(R) Inquiry Suite for the Oracle E-Business Suite. The GL Company is a long-time provider of real-time inquiry for Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and World software and has now expanded its solutions to provide real-time reporting and inquiry capabilities for users of the Oracle E-Business Suite. Live demos of The GL Company solutions will take place at Oracle OpenWorld at the Moscone Center West in San Francisco October 22-26, 2006.

Real-time reporting and inquiry present challenges in Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and World software and the Oracle E-Business Suite, and the Inquiry Suite is designed to enable users to run time-consuming reports in just seconds and create real-time inquiries for rapid review and analysis without assistance from IT. The Inquiry Suite is the only solution that uses the Oracle database as the data warehouse. Unlike Business Intelligence (BI) tools that require data to be moved and run in batch, the Inquiry Suite leverages "virtual OLAP" [On-Line Analytical Processing], turning relational data into real-time summary information.

Foster's Group, the global premium-branded beverage company, relies on Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, the Oracle E-Business Suite, and has also benefited from the use of the Inquiry Suite for JD Edwards. Foster's provided input to The GL Company during the development of the Inquiry Suite for the Oracle E-Business Suite, and Foster's is the first company to implement the new solution.

David Cooper, Finance Team Leader - Enterprise Solutions Group, Foster's IT, said, "The GL Company is unique in that it has been able to build a business application based on the concepts of OLAP technology which links directly into our real-time Oracle relational database without the need to move/stage the data to another database. What's impressive though, is the speed within which inquiries come back. Paper reports, some which were taking hours to run, can now be online inquiries, shared amongst a department, that run in seconds."

The Inquiry Suite, currently deployed in a growing number of businesses in North America, Europe, and Australasia, is based on the principles of Accounting Intelligence -- a discipline that delivers real-time visibility of financial information to business users and helps accountants accelerate the month-end close and other processes. Using the Inquiry Suite, accountants and business unit managers can have up-to-the-second information in real time, with complete confidence in the accuracy of the figures. With just a few mouse clicks, a CFO can drill down from a high-level consolidation Profit and Loss account to the details of the underlying transactions.

"For users of Oracle JD Edwards and the Oracle E-Business Suite, The GL Company solution enables rapid access to the critical information in the database. In this way, as a member of the Oracle PartnerNetwork, The GL Company makes a significant contribution to the power and value of Oracle solutions for customers worldwide," said Robert BuWalda, Sr. Director of Industry ISVs, Oracle.

See a live demonstration of The GL Company solution during Oracle OpenWorld 2006 at Booth 3718 in the Moscone Center West. For more information, attend The GL Company education session "Really Real Time Budgeting", session ID S283291, Thursday October 26 at 1:30 pm PDT at 60 Hilton Hotel, Franciscan Room A.

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation.
