Magnitude Announces RapidDecision 6.5

Prebuilt data warehouse solution now includes searchable metadata definitions, business glossary and lineage

AUSTIN, Texas – February 16, 2017 – Magnitude, a leader in enabling corporate performance management (CPM), master data management (MDM) and data connectivity in heterogeneous data environments, today announced the launch of Magnitude RapidDecision 6.5. The prebuilt enterprise data warehouse solution now includes access to the full metadata model, business glossary and lineage. Access to data within JD Edwards and PeopleSoft ERP systems has also been expanded.

Magnitude RapidDecision delivers a complete, real-time view of business data to enable more informed decision-making based on trustworthy data. The patent-pending technology automatically extracts, transforms, rationalizes and organizes data from ERP and non-ERP sources into a purpose-built, unified data model that is updated in real-time with minimal performance impact to production systems or the network.
Additional Magnitude RapidDecision 6.5 enhancements include:

  • Expanded analytics coverage for human resources data across JD Edwards EnterpriseOne including Average Compensation and EEO Analysis
  • Published metadata model to enable report writers and end users to access complete documentation of the business glossary
  • New search capability for access to enhanced data mart documentation, definitions and source to target data lineage
  • 3x Improvement in load throughput and 7x improvement in query performance

“While ERP systems continue to fragment, pressure to take the pulse of a business in real-time is increasing, creating a bottleneck that can slow decision making,” said Mike Ormerod, Vice President, Product Management of Magnitude. “Complicated, custom solutions simply drive up cost and complexity, often failing to deliver usable functionality in a timely manner. We’re solving that problem with a rapidly deployable, cost-effective solution.”

Magnitude RapidDecision 6.5 can be implemented in as few as 10 days per subject area, and features the industry’s only fixed-fee implementation guarantee. Those interested in learning more can click here.

Magnitude Software Introduces RTD Stream, the Cross-Platform ERP Consolidation Solution

RTD Stream Solution Empowers Finance Departments to Control Increasingly Fragmented ERP Landscape

AUSTIN, Texas – August 8, 2016 – Magnitude Software, a leading provider of Enterprise Information Management (EIM) software for corporate performance management and master data management, today introduced RTD Stream, a solution to integrate heterogeneous ERP data into SAP S/4 HANA in near real time. RTD Stream enables access to the entirety of an organization’s fragmented ERP data, allowing finance professionals to centrally control their operations in a true shared services environment.

“The ERP landscape is more fragmented than ever, and that trend will only continue,” said Mike Ormerod, Vice President of Product Management at Magnitude Software. “With the release of RTD Stream we are giving real-time controls and insights to CFOs and finance departments so they can better optimize their businesses with a connectivity solution that leverages our deep understanding of the internal Oracle ERP and SAP HANA data structures.”

Unlike other solutions, RTD Stream automatically extracts, transforms, rationalizes, maps and organizes systems data from Oracle ERP platforms including JD Edwards E1 and World, plus PeopleSoft and E-Business Suite. RTD Stream structures and continuously feeds ERP data into SAP S/4 HANA, creating a consolidated, financial view of the business. RTD Stream further enhances SAP S4/HANA by automating the integration of heterogeneous ERP data (such as general ledger data from non-SAP ERP systems), and delivering it into S/4 HANA.

Key Benefits include:

  • Users can easily load non-SAP ERP data into S/4 HANA.
  • All SAP and non-SAP ERP data is available on a single SAP HANA platform reducing confusion and increasing efficiency.
  • Rapid time to value: RTD Stream can be installed in as little as 10 days per ERP source, reducing time and money spent.
  • Data is continuously updated and remains current – mitigating the need for periodic refreshes that can impact system and network performance.
  • ERP version changes that can impact the internal ERP data structure are completely transparent to the reports and analytics.
  • Bundled starter reports for each supported transaction types.

Functionality Highlights:

  • Data capture from other non-Oracle ERP, CRM and custom systems with a Universal Adapter allowing for a complete financial business view.
  • Ability to add RapidDecision, Magnitude’s analytics solution, on SAP HANA to ensure 100% of the Oracle ERP (JD Edwards, PeopleSoft, E-Business Suite) transaction data is available for analysis and allows users to drill back to source system data.
  • Combined with RapidDecision, reports can be enhanced and new analytics created without the typical delays and the effort required to extract additional data elements from source systems.

When RTD Stream is expanded to include RapidDecision, Magnitude’s analytics solution running on HANA, 22 additional subject areas beyond general ledger are enabled. These include AP, AR, inventory and sales. This integration provides a richer reporting and analytics capability, allowing users to drill down into detailed business transactions to, for example, associate an expense transaction with the purchase order, or link inventory valuation with real-time inventory balances.
