Leading provider of enterprise Reporting and Analytics software.
Change is the only constant in this world. Businesses too need to constantly evolve and change strategies from time to time to remain competitive and grow. This impacts the operations of every business function, requiring new reports to be generated to reflect the changing perspectives and align the decision-making process to new organizational goals.
From a Business Intelligence (BI) perspective, this means that end-users need to be able to general custom reports, especially in the context of operational reporting. They need solutions that drive agility and nimbleness. If a user needs to generate a custom operational report that cannot be produced by semantic data models, then we need a better solution.
Need for a Modern Reporting Solution
The Orbit Reporting and Analytics tool is a flexible, versatile solution that enables business users to build reports using data from multiple sources. It offers more than 1000 pre-built reports and data models for real-time self-service reporting and analytics, enabling users to build their reports without relying on IT.
In addition to the pre-built reports, business users can also create their reports based on their needs specific to the function or aligning with the changes being effected in the organization using the SQL DirectQuery feature. It leverages the familiar and popular SQL query to create new kinds of reports to meet relevant business needs.
Why Orbit’s SQL DirectQuery is extremely critical for Modern Operational Reporting
Orbit’s SQL DirectQuery supports organizations to be agile and data-driven. Without having to save scripts on the desktop, users can centrally maintain, share and reuse scripts as SQL Models to create reports that cannot be produced by semantic data models. A part of the Orbit Operational Reporting tool, it can also create data extracts.
SQL Scripting is a popular language used to retrieve and manipulate data in a database. It has now evolved to become a sophisticated and powerful language that can perform data analysis and feed the data to a visual interface. While SQL queries are mostly used to produce tabular outputs rendered to data grid components or analytical SQL queries, the outputs are rendered by visually compelling charting widgets.
In SQL DirectQuery, Orbit automatically pulls the results from SQL queries generated using business schematic models into R programs using a drag and drop interface. Orbit’s integration with Python allows it to leverage Python’s charting libraries to produce sophisticated visual outputs. The R libraries can be upgraded at any time and can take advantage of the latest functionality. By integrating Orbit with R, R’s charting libraries can be leveraged to produce sophisticated visual outputs.
Self-Service with SQL DirectQuery
SQL is a powerful programming language that helps retrieve specific information from a database and create and alter new tables using a database and present it in a readable format. Queries can be used to perform calculations on the data, automate data management, review updates to data before committing them to the database and keep your data clean and organized.
By using SQL DirectQuery, users can build their operational reports based on their specific needs without the help of the IT team. This helps speed up report building. It can also be scheduled and once a SQL DirectQuery has been generated, it can be programmed to generate reports at periodic intervals as needed. The visualization can also be customized to suit the needs of the user, providing insights that can improve informed decision-making.
