Bothell, WA – March 2, 2009 –Winshuttle, the leading provider of data entry and extraction tools for SAP users, today announced that querySHUTTLE, a new SAP data extraction and reporting tool, has passed SAP’s rigorous certification process to become an SAP Certified – Powered by SAP NetWeaver – Solution. querySHUTTLE allows business users to shuttle live data from SAP into familiar Microsoft Excel and Access formats for immediate analysis and reporting. Winshuttle is pleased to offer early adopters of querySHUTTLE an opportunity to purchase licenses at a 25% discount through March 31, 2009.
querySHUTTLE enables both developers and business users to easily create, distribute, and maintain content-rich SAP queries. Users can create complex data queries across multiple tables, and find desired data by browsing or searching through Winshuttle’s SAP data dictionary. querySHUTTLE is fully integrated with Microsoft Excel and Access, and supports all of the major data formats including XLS, CSV, TEXT, and XML. querySHUTTLE currently supports the ECC 6 and ECC 5 versions of SAP.
“One great application for querySHUTTLE is the rapid development and deployment of master data quality audit queries,” said Richard King, business advisor at barenakeData. “I was running multi-table queries in under 30 minutes after downloading the software. Winshuttle’s querySHUTTLE is extremely easy to use, allowing data governance personnel to investigate complex problems from the first day.”
querySHUTTLE addresses two critical issues for data extraction from SAP systems: performance of the SAP system and security of the data. querySHUTTLE minimizes the impact on the SAP system performance through Winshuttle’s patent-pending Dynamic Process Optimization (DPO) technology which adaptively throttles the execution of queries based on the existing load on the SAP systems. The security of the data is improved with querySHUTTLE because it preserves the standard table-level security in SAP, as well as respects organization-level (plant-level, company-code level, etc.) security that is present in a user’s standard SAP security profile.
“Companies that leverage the right tools to manage their business growth on a day-to-day basis, as well as to foresee problems and initiate proactive decisions will have a huge competitive advantage,” said Vikram Chalana, Winshuttle’s chief technology officer. “querySHUTTLE is an advanced, easy-to-use SAP data extraction tool that integrates easily with the analytical and reporting capabilities of Excel, helping to provide a platform for profitable growth.”
