Why Traditional Data Access Tools Just Can't Cut It

Business users look beyond traditional data access tools to make life easier

Are you still using Query/400? Or are you manually writing and running queries in SQL or RPG? How's that really working out for you?

These methods of accessing IBM i data were great, once upon a time. But the times have changed. 

The truth of the matter is that businesses today need more than just the same-old data access. Here's why.

So much depends on data. 

IT needs to gather data from IBM i—and even remote databases—to understand business operations. Everyone else wants data to gain insight into trends and opportunities. But when it comes to accessing data on an enterprise-level, traditional methods are failing.

Query/400 can't keep up. And you have only so many programmers who are skilled in writing queries themselves. As a result, it's up to IT to use technical know-how to gather the data your organization wants.

The problem is, IT has a lot on their plates. They can't get to every request for data the minute it comes in. So they wind up being the bottleneck and everyone else winds up waiting. 

Data access shouldn’t be this difficult. It's time to take it to the next level with an enterprise data access solution. 

Who Needs Enterprise Data Access?

Any organization that needs fast, easy access to IBM i data—without the constraints of traditional tools.

IT departments who need a complete data access toolkit to meet their growing needs. 

Executives who need critical business data from IBM i and remote databases now. 

Business users who are tired of waiting for data, instead of acting on it. 

“An enterprise data access solution is so much more user friendly. I don’t have to write RPG code to do what needs to be done. Plus, HelpSystems’s GUI is much better than the old IBM Query/400 green screen."
