The UK Fujitsu Services team was challenged with implementing an enduser layer (EUL) for Oracle Discoverer to give financial and project teams the ability to write ad hoc queries and reports without input from IT. The team determined they would need to select a tried-and-tested, out-of-the-box EUL creation tool that was quick to implement, intuitive to use, could handle all query and reporting needs, and offered built-in upgrade protection.
After researching several options, the UK team decided to implement NoetixViews from Oracle partner Noetix. They chose Noetix due to its autodiscovery functionality which was able to automatically detect configurations. Within one week, the team implemented NoetixViews in the UK, and then rolled it out to seven other countries, each with a different configuration of Oracle technology.
Fujitsu Services also used Noetix’s upgrade protection to remap changes and refresh views across the eight different Oracle configurations in just five hours, ensuring uninterrupted reporting.
“NoetixViews is a proven, ready-to-go end-user layer solution that can be rolled out to hundreds of users rapidly”, said Debra Lilley, principal consultant, Fujitsu Services.
Ultimately, Noetix gave 400 users—including account managers, project leaders, and purchasing professionals—instant access to real-time intelligence stored in complex applications via the Oracle Discoverer front-end, enabling them to convert information into business knowledge.
Fujitsu also benefited from the NoetixViews small footprint which allowed hundreds of staff to run queries and generate ad hoc reports simultaneously, without reducing system performance. In addition, Noetix eliminated the need for the IT support team to assist users in writing ad hoc queries.
Due to the success Fujitsu Services experienced both with their own implementation and with a number of early customers, the company became the sole UK distributor for NoetixViews.
“NoetixViews powers an organization’s current reporting solutions and maximizes data access and delivery to users, empowering timely, accurate decision making,” said Lilley.
