13 Self-Service Reporting Historically, IT professionals created reports using development tools such as programming languages, and more recently with desktop design tools. Static results allowing limited data interaction were then made accessible to business users. © 2010 Entrinsik, Inc.

14 Self-Service Reporting Today with Informer, end-users both technical and non-technical are empowered to author their own reports, or execute reports shared by others - in a secure environment and in the format they choose, specific to individual needs! © 2010 Entrinsik, Inc.

15 Self-Service Reporting Example: The existing Course Sections List report is great, but I need SSN added to it, and I need output to excel with multivalues comma-delimited. Report: Reporting – Course Sections List © 2010 Entrinsik, Inc.

25 Across Database Boundaries Traditionally, organizations have a different reporting mechanism for each of their different applications. If you have an Inventory application written in SQL, and an Invoicing system in UniData, you most likely are forced to maintain and support (and purchase!) two different reporting tools. © 2010 Entrinsik, Inc.
