Press Release

Unity delivers jdeDirect ODBC for

J.D. Edwards WORLD

LEEDS, United Kingdom, March, 2003 -- UES Limited, trading as Unity announces the launch of jdeDirect ODBC drivers for J.D. Edwards World Software on IBM’s iSeries (AS/400). This follows the successful launch of jdeDirect ODBC for J.D. Edwards OneWorld in July 2002. jdeDirect ODBC is a middleware tool developed to enable Windows server and client applications to exchange data for external query and reporting tools, web technologies, business intelligence tools, data warehousing, data mining and decision support solutions. It is a standards based SQL middleware product, for J.D. Edwards World Software ERP systems, powered by ODBC functionality.

jdeDirect ODBC delivers everything a user would expect from a custom J.D. Edwards based ODBC driver, including the ability to log into any authorised World environment in a READ ONLY MODE. jdeDirect ODBC drivers work with the World defined library list, expose the full file and field descriptions, auto-link to the UDC file to give virtual fields with UDC descriptions, process the World date and numeric data correctly, expose any configured vocabulary overrides and language preferences and integrate fully with the J.D. Edwards security and Data Dictionary configuration.

This uniquely powerful tool will ensure that novices and experts alike can use Microsoft Excel or Crystal Reports (or ANY ODBC compliant application) to extract meaningful data from the J.D. Edwards World system within minutes of installing jdeDirect ODBC.

Manoj Patel, Unity MD, comments: "We’ve had an excellent response from our early pilot sites. This is a highly effective tool, which will be of enormous help to companies in accessing and interpreting data quickly."
