Corporate reporting and analysis systems can be divided into two major categories, managed reporting and ad hoc reporting. With managed reporting, technical specialists and report developers build reports for others to use. The report developers work with business users to understand their reporting requirements and then build a set of reports for various groups in the organization.
Managed reporting has been the primary form of reporting in Business for many years. Sometimes, though, business personnel want to build their own reports, often to quickly answer a current business question. In many cases, users know their own data and know the type of information for which they want to search. But, they may not be able to wait for IT to develop the report if they are busy with other projects. The user may also want to schedule reports for fast delivery, share reports among their team members, archive reports for historical reference, and so on. When end users build their own reports, they want as much functionality as possible and easy non-technical access to their data.
Web-based solutions like Informer now make it easier for end users to create and build their own reports and analyze information according to their own preferences this is Ad Hoc Reporting.
Ad hoc reporting empowers everyday business users to create their own reports and perform in-depth analysis of real-time information right in their Web browsers. Sometimes, you and others in your organization need reporting capabilities for one-time questions or want to build specialty reports without having to request that report from AutoPower or someone that understands the AutoPower data structure, and query language.
Ad hoc reporting allows end users to get answers on demand and customize their queries so their reports contain only the information they needed.
