Reporting tools vendor Sqribe has shipped the latest version of its flagship Sqribe Enterprise product that allows users to generate and view reports upon which everyday business decisions can be based.
David Ogidi, Sqribe's UK managing director, said that companies use multiple applications to access information and this usually results in a waste of time and resources. He explained that Sqribe Enterprise remedies this situation by bringing together information from heterogeneous repositories and presenting it in the ubiquitous Web browser interface.
The package is based on Java in the form of servlets, with HTML and XML used to present reports to the end user. Ogidi claimed that the software can run on most combinations of hardware and operating system. Security is handled by SSL (secure sockets layer) and it offers variable access rights and a single login, taking security information directly from the back office application.
The Sqribe Enterprise includes: VisualSqribe, an interactive reporting tool; an enhanced version of ReportMart end-user delivery system; the SQR reporting server; and the Power Sqribe visual query and analysis tool.
Sqribe will launch a new set of services to help companies deploy Sqribe Enterprise and manage information repositories.
Combining the interactivity of OLAP, the ease-of-use of the Web, and the power of enterprise reporting, Enterprise offers a number of useful features. These include Empowered Reports, in which the user can seamlessly drill down into the data behind the report; Report Surfing, which allows the user to navigate between related reports; and Smartcuts, which are shortcuts to enterprise data defined in a Web address, or URL, using ReportMart's delivery infrastrucure to control access.
Ogidi said that Sqribe's aim is to empower end users, who are generally non-technical and yet need to generate reports to help them make everyday business decisions.
Sqribe Enterprise is priced according to the platform and configuration.
A Windows NT installation of the entire solution, for example, costs #24,543. Sqribe 0118 958 5016.
