Click&DECiDE is ahead of the other BI solutions!

November 2011


Click&DECiDE and Toolmaker participated at the Common Germany event of IBM System users in November 2011!


COMMON Germany, the official association of IBM system users for 25 years, held their annual conference on 7th and 8th of November 2011 in Schweinfurt Germany. The participants could witness an exciting competition: five vendors proposed their BI solution in a two-day live-contest against each other in the race. It was a hard nut to crack: extract lots of data from a complex SAP BW data model - realistic conditions of daily-life business practice. At the end, there were two winners.


The task was difficult and needed to be accomplished in a short period of time. The combatants were sweating at their computers for two full days: it was a matter of collecting data for sales and controlling from a complex SAP data model, analyzing, presenting the data in cubes and meet special requirements. None of the participants could carry out the tasks completely (general consensus:" full four days of work!"). Nevertheless, two participants achieved clean results, which were presented to the audience at the end of the conference.
The competing solutions were Aruba, FTSolutions, IBM/Cognos and Excel Data, Click&DECiDE with Toolmaker at the scratch line. At the end Click&DECiDE was one of two winners. Click&DECiDE was particularly strong with the dashboard functions, report creation and design, and data distribution.


Click&DECiDE facilitates manipulation of the decision-making data from different systems and in different file formats. It can collect and prepare automatically data from all parts of the company so that deviations from target figures, negative trends, etc. are identified early, they are easy to discover and to translate into action by the responsible staff.


Click&DECiDE accesses natively all existing databases of the company. Rules for data query must be defined only once. The data can then be graphically presented as desired.  The current results can be obtained with a simple click - in real time processing, anytime.


The participants of the annual COMMON Conference paid particular attention to the results of the BI Contest. With a clear intent: Business Intelligence has become vital even for small and medium-sized enterprises. The markets are evolving faster than ever - and decision makers need solid and up-to-date information for corporate management and controlling.
