The reality is that non-technical people can use Sequel because it’s pretty straightforward. Many people here can easily create a report and be confident about the result. I’m very pleased with Sequel—it’s a great tool for us.

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, Fortra’s GUI is much better than the old IBM Query/400 green screen.
Cameron Glenn, Senior Accounting Officer, MainSource Financial Group
A lot of times the output from Sequel is the starting point for users’ Excel spreadsheets. They’ll take what I give them and do pivot tables and other things like that. And they know that the data is accurate because it comes right from the system.
Jim Coursen, Business Applications Manager, Simcona Electronics
One of the biggest benefits of Sequel is the fast turnaround on reports it gives us. My background is as an RPG programmer, but for 90% of the things I do, I use Sequel because it’s faster. It takes me a quarter of the time.
Alan Boulee, Senior Programming Analyst, Fremont Insurance
I can read SQL, but I can't write it. But I can do all these queries and build reports with Sequel because Sequel generates the SQL for me.
Tom Gould, IT Business Analyst, Urban Outfitters
I trialed Sequel and learned what it can do—how easy it is to pull data from DB2 files and make information available to end users. During the trial period, we built a few prototype reports. And, when I gave my executive team a demo, they were sold on the spot.
