Sort and Filter by nested objects ( alpha => alpha.beta.bataName )

I have the following grid, and i am wondering if it is possible to sort or filter by objects nested in objects. The second coloum i define is what i am trying to sort and filter by with no luck. i get no results back at all.
*** VIEW
@(Html.EJ().DataManager("FlatData").URL(Url.Action("GlobalDataSource", "Home", null, Request.Url.Scheme)).Adaptor(AdaptorType.UrlAdaptor))
   .ContextMenuSettings(contextMenu =>
  .Columns(c =>
    c.Field(f => f.ID).Width("7%").Add();
    c.Field(f => f.Company.CompanyName).Width("15%").Add();
    c.Field(f => f.TicketDisplayID).Width("15%").Add();
    c.Field(f => f.CreateDate).Width("10%").Add();
    c.Field(f => f.ClosedDate).Width("10%").Add();
    c.Field(f => f.ServiceItem).Width("10%").Add();
    c.Field(f => f.Desc).Width("13%").Add();
    c.Field(f => f.RespPartyResolutionTypeId).Width("10%").Add();
    c.Field(f => f.Parent).Width("10%").Add();
  .SortSettings(sort => sort.SortedColumns(col => col.Field("ID").Direction(SortOrder.Descending).Add()))
  .PageSettings(p => p.PageSize(30).EnableQueryString())
  .ClientSideEvents(e => e

public ActionResult GlobalDataSource(Syncfusion.JavaScript.DataManager dm)
 IEnumerable data = db.GlobalTicketInfo; 
 Syncfusion.JavaScript.DataSources.DataOperations operation = new Syncfusion.JavaScript.DataSources.DataOperations();
 if (dm.Sorted != null && dm.Sorted.Count > 0)
    data = operation.PerformSorting(data, dm.Sorted);
 if (dm.Where != null && dm.Where.Count > 0)
    data = operation.PerformWhereFilter(data, dm.Where, dm.Where[0].Operator);
 int count = data.AsQueryable().Count();
 if (dm.Skip != 0)
    data = operation.PerformSkip(data, dm.Skip);

 if (dm.Take != 0)
    data = operation.PerformTake(data, dm.Take);
 return Json(new { result = data, count = count }, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);

Hi Diamond, 
Sorry for the inconvenience caused. 
We have wrongly updated the Forum id in previous update instead of Forum #127952.

This seems like an incident that multiple people must have ran into. Especially when entity makes it so easy to attack relational objects to other objects.
I am wondering what the standard work around for this problem is. I imagine that some has had to solve this problem before. 
Thank you for any workarounds that you are able to give me.
