A business user asked me if I can run the report for her 'excluding the systematics'. Does that mean without going through the formality and procedure and etc?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, see the FAQ.
Your notion that the type of report doesn't matter probably is wrong; and most probably you need to ask the user to show you what report elements she wishes to have excluded.
If the report covers stock trading results, you might need to exclude "indices that track the performance of an algorithmic trading strategy", as noted in wikipedia systematic indices article. For other reports, the meaning may be analogous, but as there does not appear to be a unique, widespread, or well-known referent for "systematics", I doubt that anybody other than the user involved can answer your question.
It's quite unlikely that she meant "formality and procedure and etc". (By the way, "etc." means "and so forth".)
