Query and Reporting Tools
The financial data warehouse is accessed through an end-user query and reporting application called Business Objects. Business Objects provides several tools to securely access the financial data warehouse or personal data files with a point-and-click interface including the following:
- BusinessObjects (Reporter and Explorer) Microsoft Windows based query and reporting tool.
- InfoView – a web based tool that allows reports to be refreshed on demand (but cannot create new reports).
- InfoBurst – a web based server tool that allows reports to be refreshed, scheduled and distributed. It can be used to distribute reports and data to users or servers in various formats (e.g. Text, Excel, PDF, HTML, etc.). For more information, see the documentation below:
- Financial Data Warehouse List Upload – a web based tool that allows lists of data to be uploaded into the financial data warehouse for use as input to queries. For more information, see the documentation below:
