Seamless Integration with PB Application
No need to Deploy a BI tool
Embedding a BI Tool in a Web Portal will allow anybody accessing the web portal to generate reports without installing anything locally.
Less user manipulation
Embedding the reporting tool in the application allows you to leverage the context of the application.
The list of available reports and the parameters will be automatically retrieved from the context of the application to produce the right report.
Improve the response time
A familiar UI simplifies and quickens employee reaction time
Thanks to an embedded BI, a Help Desk Staff can access the business data of his customer and be able to provide an immediate answer to his questions.
Leverage the context of the Application
Integrating Reporting Studio, let's you implement advanced reporting features into your application.
For example, when a user is viewing the list of customers, he will only see the reports related to the business entity "Customer".
To do that, developpers will use an API to filter relevant reports for each window using:
Tags (keywords) associated to reports by Reports Designers
Business entities manipulated both by windows and reports: This will display the reports for which the business entity ("Customer" for example) is the same than the window currently used in the application (for example, a datawindow showing "Customers").
Business Rules: Write code that will dynamically search and filter some reports based on keywords, DW Name, Report Name etc.
Developers connect windows and reports with parameter passing:
For each window, developers select the fields that can be used as report parameters.
When designers create new reports from this window, they can use one or several parameters to filter the reports automatically. For example, the report "List of Purchase Orders" will display only the purchase order of the customer selected in the the window, using the parameter "Customer Name".
