ARCTOOLS Updates JDE Performance Tool
March 13, 2012 Alex Woodie
The JD Edwards ERP systems bring specific needs and requirements in the area of data archiving, purging, and performance management. One vendor that has been active in this area is ARCTOOLS. This month, the Denver, Colorado, company is launching version 2.1 of its eponymous suite, which expands the software for use in other applications.
ARCTOOLS has been used by more than 300 JD Edwards World and EnterpriseOne customers since it was developed by DCSoftware and Whitehouse Consultants in the 1990s. The only other ERP system that the developers have actively targeted is BPCS.
But with the launch of ARCTOOLS version 2.1 shipped on March 1, the vendor now has an archive and purge solution that will work with any application. This capability is available through a new generic archiving toolset that delivers to other apps the same level of archiving functionality that has been so critical in JD Edwards environments.
Other new features in version 2.1 include a new Web-based interface, an advanced tools function, and the capability to work out of the box with additional JD Edwards modules, including property management, advanced transportation, and quality modules.
We live in an era of big data. But when data gets too big, it can be harmful to one’s corporate health, according to ARCTOOLS chief product architect Barry Yelverton. “Untamed data growth can pose a serious threat to a business. ARCTOOLS helps you address this serious issue, improve system performance, and reduce data management costs,” Yelverton says in a press release.
