Query and reporting solutions are part of a comprehensive business intelligence approach. When you have questions, these solutions provide the answers.
Query and reporting solutions have increasingly added:
- visualization approaches to make data patterns stand out more starkly,
- self-service capabilities so users can get what the answers they need without invoving IT,
- support for the ability to quickly share insights and reports with other users,
- capabilities to query on an ad hoc basis,
- and real time capabilities to provide actionable information to users when it can make a difference.
