The Windward product suite helps you embed advanced reporting and document generation functionality into your new or existing software application. The Windward Java and .NET engines quickly and cleanly embed into your codebase and connect with your SQL-based data source or sources.
By employing the Windward reporting and document generation solution, you to take advantage of SQL Server’s best features.
The advantages include:
The ability to apply your existing queries, views and stored procedures allows you to get started quickly. Views and stored procedures allow you to reuse the queries you have worked so hard to perfect. 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 whole toolbox full of data selection options. Windward’s ability to use these functions natively extends those options, meaning lyou spend less time crunching your data and even more time using it.
SQL’s joins are a great feature to link tables together by a common column. Building and perfecting them, however, can be 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 metadata and distills those table relations for you. This is all bundled neatly in Windward’s SQL Wizard, automatically creating joins based on the data you select.
You created a strong security layer for your SQL Server, so you should use a product that fully utilizes it.
Windward connects and validates against your existing SQL Server security via internal database or Active Directory. This enables you to design and deliver your reports securely. You'll have the peace of mind that your end users will only have access to the data that you allow them to.
You complete your programming, 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.
End users can even output those reports when and where they want, in widely used and widely accepted formats like DOCX, PDF, HTML, direct-to-printer, and more.
