There is no limit to what you can do with this DB2 reporting software.
With Windward, you deliver better looking reports, on time.
Windward's solution brings advanced reporting and document generation functionality into your new or existing software application. The Windward Java and .NET engines engines quickly and easily embed into your codebase and connect with your SQL-based data source or sources.
By incorporating Windward's reporting and document automation solution, you get to take advantage of your SQL server's best features.
The advantages include:
The ability to apply your existing queries, views and stored procedures will let you get started quickly. Views and stored procedures allow you to reuse the queries you have already developed. Using SQL language queries directly in Windward tags enables you to harness the power of the large library of built-in functions. Windward takes advantage of these time-saving SQL features natively, allowing you to focus on template creation, not data selection.
SQL’s functions provide you with a toolbox full of data selection options. Windward’s ability to use these functions natively extends those options,meaning less time crunching your data and more time using it.
SQL’s joins are a great feature to link tables together by a common column. Building and perfecting them, however, is a time consuming process. Windward’s SQL wizard has a unique algorithm that will automatically create joins between your tables.
The algorithm scans your SQL Server’s meta data and distills those table relations for you. This is all bundled neatly in Windward’s SQL Wizard creating joins automatically based on the data you select.
You’ve worked hard to create the security layer of your SQL Server, so why use a product that doesn’t utilize it?
Windward connects and validates against your existing SQL Server security via the internal database or Active Directory enabling you to design and deliver your reports securely. Rest assured that your end users will only have access to the data they are allowed.
Once your programming is completed, non-developer employees and other end users apply the Windward AutoTag design tool to create report templates in Microsoft® Office®. Novice users can apply Windward’s intuitive SQL wizard to create complex queries with simple drag and drop actions, directly linking their templates to your SQL-based data source.
They can then run and distribute those reports when and where they want, in widely used and widely accepted formats.
By treating your template as a free-form document and providing you with the most cutting-edge DB2 reporting tools currently on the market, Windward makes DB2 reporting and document generation easier than ever. Request a free demo. Or, download a free trial.
