Remove the Barriers to Data Analysis
Data analysis and reporting is a scary concept, but a business necessity for every organization. It’s traditionally up to IT to access and deliver information from IBM i to users. But, it often takes far too much time to gather, assess, and distribute information that everyday users will understand.
Unfortunately, without a modern solution, organizations don’t have much choice.
The green screen traditionally used for data access creates a barrier for non-technical users. Discerning trends from looking at data that’s detailed in rows and columns is difficult. And pulling together a report with such a solution is incredibly time-consuming—plus, the end-result is often outdated before it’s completed.
Business users and executives want real-time information they can depend on, and they want it delivered quickly in formats they understand. Effective executive dashboards and detailed, user-friendly reports will help.
One of the biggest benefits 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 a reporting solution because it’s faster. It takes me a quarter of the time.
