Reports are meant to share information, but the people who receive them often find they don’t tell the whole story.

Whether it’s sales, inventory, shipments, budgets, and payroll across dates, accounting periods, locations, service codes, or other elements, most users would be happier to receive the report data, not the report. Spreadsheets quickly get complicated, time consuming, and corrupted. Most users simply need a safe, modern interface where they can break report data down in various ways, format, filter, summarize, and chart on the fly.

At past COMMON conferences we’ve shared legacy report modernization methods using API’s, SQL Views, and the SPOOLED_FILE_DATA command. Now we encourage you to look at how the Qport™ SmartView module of NGS-IQ™ enables non-technical users to play with report data in a read-only environment that can reduce the number of queries you write and run, while improving how your company understands its data.
