DATA Robots FOR EXCELLENCE
A DATA DISCOVERY TOOL WITH EXCELLENT MS OFFICE INTEGRATION
Validate your AI company's unified DWH by providing ML/AI engineers and product managers with a common data discovery tool.
D4E can be part of an enterprise data architecture such as:-
- Core Enterprise Systems (GL, DW, CRM, Cloud Data),
- Tools for data transformation and delivery (BI tools, PEGA, Informatica, Microstrategy, D4E), and
- Tactical solutions to meet ad-hoc reporting needs (TM1, Solvexia, D4E).

Transform to fully digital data analytics by interfacing your web servers with Excel D4E servers.
Are you using a supporting tool, or an enterprise system?
Allow business users who are subject matter-rich but SQL-poor to report securely from data warehouses or data lakes.
Apply strong finance and risk controls for many user-developed applications (UDAs) by converting to a single enterprise repository.
But as a true enterprise reporting platform, D4E manages apps built for integration with MS Office without UDAs & user VBA. By inter-operating with MS Office applications, the enterprise-controlled apps become secure tools or data robots that access databases via ODBC (Oracle, DB2, MS SQL). With D4E, you can build self-service data discovery tools; or full enterprise projects with Ribbon menus & batch processing; or robotic solutions with simplified extract tools.
However, continuous use of supporting tools in Finance is not SOX/ICOFR-compliant and ultimately results in "Excel hell". D4E provides a systems solution that eliminates supporting tools by:-
- moving all calculative processes and ETL to the enterprise environment via an external apps store,
- moving all data storage to enterprise databases,
- allowing only non-update user actions (e.g., data visualization, what-ifs, high fidelity presentation) in Excel, and
- replacing an unlimited number of UDAs (e.g., Excel macros, MS Access, SQL scripts) with a single integrated system hosted in Excel.
By seamlessly integrating all of above in MS Office, D4E delivers end-user computing approach - but also delivers enterprise approach for data strategy and governance (including change control, accuracy, security, disaster recovery and service level agreement), whilst mobilizing Excel's strengths in user-friendliness, deep end-user experience, presentation and what-if analysis. Your end-user applications will be subject to the same robust controls as the rest of the financial reporting process.
