Solix Technologies extends Application Retirement Reporting functionalities to Solix Enterprise Data Management Suite (EDMS) Release 4.5.


Solix EDMS to now include a new Solix ViewBuilder and Solix ReportBuilder for Application Retirement

SANTA CLARA, CA, May 06, 2009 – Solix Technologies, the leading provider of enterprise data management solutions used by large enterprise customers to manage business critical data, today announced the new Release of Solix EDMS 4.5. A key announcement with the new Release was extension of Solix EDMS Reporting capabilities for Application Retirement, including two new modules called, Solix ViewBuilder and Solix ReportBuilder.

According to Gartner research, “Applications often outlive their usefulness. Functions are duplicated by ‘sister’ organizations, acquired during mergers or included in new packages. Changes in business processes, architectures or operational needs may render an application obsolete. On average, 10% of the applications in an unoptimized portfolio are candidates for retirement. An additional one-third can require migration or rationalization”. (Gartner Report: Plan Legacy Application Retirement Carefully by Jim Duggan, April 24, 2009).

Solix EDMS Application Retirement tool helps customers migrate structured data from legacy applications to a central database repository with reporting capabilities. The tool supports migrating data at table level, business object level and the database level.

Solix ViewBuilder: Solix ViewBuilder is a web based tool, which allows creating business views on the base tables with business friendly context names for table names and column names. The tool automatically creates view definitions (DDL). These views will be created on the migrated database for reporting purposes.

Solix ReportBuilder: Solix ReportBuilder allows end-users to build complex reports and represent them visually. Solix Report Builder also generates SQL queries based on visual representation. End user reports can be built quickly and easily using this reporting tool based on the views generated from the Solix ViewBuilder.

Solix EDMS integration with Oracle Universal Online Archive (UOA) will enable migrating the data and reports to a highly secured archiving environment. This integration would also provide complete reporting and search capabilities on the data migrated to UOA.

“Solix EDMS has been deployed over the last couple of years in a number of Application retirement projects” said Shekhar Dasgupta, President & Chief Operating Officer, Solix Technologies. “The newly introduced Solix ViewBuilder, Solix ReportBuilder and integration with Oracle Universal Online Archive for storing legacy reports and legacy data would now catapult it to the leading industry solution for application retirement”.
