We also use Cognos as our Business Intelligence solution, with the add-on e-Applications for JDEdwards OneWorld. That add-on extracts data from our JDEdwards databases and inserts it in a Data Warehouse database. From that Data Warehouse we create our reports and publish them to Cognos Upfront (web solution).
e-Applications is from Cognos as well. They can give you more information.
OneWorld Xe (Update 2, Service Pack 16.1)
Deployment Server: Windows 2000 Advanced Server (SP2)
Enterprise Servers: Windows 2000 Advanced Server (SP2) with SQLServer 2000, Sun Solaris 8 with Oracle 8i
Terminal Server: Windows 2000 Terminal Services with Citrix
The e-Applications, as I understand them, were
developed by a company called Enabled Worlds
(www.enabledworlds.com), which is a joint venture
between Cognos and CD Group. There are a tremendous
number of pre-defined KPIs, graphics, and reporting
written for each of the primary JDE modules.
