“With most systems I’ve seen deployed, all of the initial focus is on getting the system to work. With BCP, we were able to focus on getting the business value right away...it is amazing.”
Palo Alto, California (PRWEB) October 7, 2010
Boardwalktech, a leading provider of collaboration solutions for global enterprises, today announced that it will host a webinar on October 12th @ 11AM PST for line of business (LOB) and IT professionals who are looking for a new way to automate critical business processes in their company. Most IT organizations find it difficult to keep up with the demand for enterprise enabling LOB applications—the ones that are currently being run on spreadsheets shared between multiple people. Today, most companies try to meet this demand by looking at another module for their ERP, deploying a new point solution, or creating a custom application using a traditional database technology. During this informative webinar, you will learn about a new way to deploy enterprise quality applications—one that couples the flexibility of Excel with the scalability of a relational database.
Introducing the Boardwalk Collaboration Platform (BCP)
BCP makes spreadsheet-based processes enterprise quality by coupling the business process modeling capabilities of a spreadsheet to a patented database abstraction technology designed to work specifically with tabular data within a traditional RDBMS like Microsoft® SQL Server™. With BCP, process owners can create an application by selecting a range of data from within Excel and then sharing it through BCP’s tabular database extraction layer which runs on top of SQL Server. There’s no data table definition, no table joining, no formula programming—all the process setup is completed automatically from within Excel. Process users can then make changes in Excel on their desktop, click a button, and other users will see the data or formula change appear at the cell level within their spreadsheets. You can even set up access control so users will only see or change specific rows of columns of data. And, multiple users can work on the same data at the same time without check in/out—even work offline, because BCP versions all changes. No more emailing versions, save-as, or cut & paste. A Microsoft solution architect was stunned that Boardwalktech had figured out how to share data at the cell-level between users on their desktop. The answer is simple, compelling, and patented—let users work inside Excel but manage the data securely in the cloud using a customized SQL Server database environment.
Flexible, Enterprise Quality Data Environment
Our customers are deploying BCP for multiple applications including sales forecasting, supply chain/production planning, project/resource management, and financial planning. And, they are doing so in weeks, not months and for 100s of users. One customer commented “With most systems I’ve seen deployed, all of the initial focus is on getting the system to work. With BCP, we were able to focus on getting the business value right away...it is amazing.”
