Beyond Data GmbH Joins Winshuttle’s SHUTTLEpro Partner Program to Tackle the Healthcare Market

Bothell, WA – June 30, 2010 –Winshuttle, the leading provider of applications which connect the business user to SAP®, today announced a partnership agreement with Beyond Data, a specialist in developing business intelligence (BI) and data warehouse solutions for healthcare businesses. With Winshuttle’s products now available as part of Beyond Data’s total solution offering, healthcare businesses in the DACH region will have the ability to work directly with their SAP system from Microsoft Excel®, Web forms and other interfaces without programming.

Data warehouse and BI applications for pharmaceutical companies tend to involve very large volumes of data. In addition, alongside the continuous monitoring of predefined key performance indicators, new issues often arise that need to be resolved quickly and reliably. Ad hoc analysis of this kind of very large volumes of data are becoming increasingly difficult for conventional database solutions to handle, and the expenditure on administration is rising enormously.

Winshuttle’s solutions simplify the analysis of large volumes of data while ensuring that data security is maintained. Users can extract any data they want from SAP – without any programming knowledge – which can then be used in Excel. This means that reports can be produced and data analyzed in a familiar Excel environment without major outlay and without any detrimental effect on the performance of the SAP server or on data integrity.

“One of Beyond Data’s major strengths is the symbiosis between its specialized knowledge of data handling for healthcare customers and its technical expertise in the field of BI,” said Klaus Garms, Managing Director of Winshuttle Deutschland GmbH. “This partnership aligns Winshuttle with a highly respected brand, and we are confident that together, we will further improve market positioning in the DACH region.”

“In many projects, we see again and again how difficult it is to integrate SAP data into data warehouse solutions and how complicated it is to upload data into SAP. Winshuttle’s solutions impressed us by making these tasks considerably easier and allowing employees who lack in-depth knowledge of SAP to perform them. What’s more, they provide greater speed and precision to processing procedures that would not be possible without Winshuttle’s solutions,” said Manfred Partzsch, Managing Director of Beyond Data.
