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.

The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
The 3rd International @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the most profound change in personal and enterprise IT since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago. All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
