In the world of JD Edwards, there are a number of ways to generate reports. For users, transactional data is generated through the QBE grid. For C-level executives, strategic data is forecasted in Business Intelligence. But where can you find the analytical data that falls between those two categories? JD Edwards EnterpriseOne One View Reporting fills the gap between detailed transactional reporting and strategic business intelligence systems.
One View provides a user-driven graphical reporting tool for EnterpriseOne users. It reports on transactional data, which is good for day-to-day reports, specifically things like customer agings and supplier analysis.
The new graphical interface found in One View Reporting is another step on JD Edwards’ path to modernizing the software. One View’s interface is user-friendly and intuitive, allowing users to easily access data and produce reports.
