ANN ARBOR (WWJ) — LLamasoft, the Ann Arbor supply chain design software developer, Wednesday released Data Guru, a desktop data productivity tool that enables business analysts and supply chain modelers to connect to all of their different data sources in a single window, apply transforms in a powerful visual interface, and publish the resulting intelligence to any application or reporting environment, including LLamasoft Supply Chain Guru.

Data Guru is a new class of application targeted at bridging the gap between the mountains of big data that companies are able to collect from ERP and data warehouses and the downstream business intelligence applications.

Previous attempts at creating intelligent middleware data connectors have focused on IT users or database architects.  Data Guru focuses on bringing the power of data transformation, SQL and in-memory databases to the business analyst, putting them to work solving difficult data problems in an easy-to-use visual environment.  LLamasoft says Data Guru uses patent-pending technology from the gaming industry and embeds it in a business oriented application, bringing the possibility of creating intelligent, repeatable data connectors to a the business user.

“Our customers consistently rate ‘data problems’ as their number-one obstacle to success in optimizing their supply chains. We think this may be the game-changer that business analysts have been searching for,” notes LLamasoft CEO Don Hicks.
