Q&A 10

Q&A 10 comprises the following components:

XL is an add-in for Microsoft Excel that provides a faster, easier, and more adaptable way to analyse business data. There is no need to understand sophisticated database to create reports, since the information is provided in an intuitive user interface with common names for database structures. Features include the ability to publish reports to the web, report and query wizards, cube analysis, report designer, extract modes for statistical reporting, macro builder for automating XL functions, and security.

Executive is a dynamic analysis and reporting application that includes powerful analytical capabilities such as drilldown, expand, breakout, and cube analysis. These features make it easier for business users to analyse trends, problems, and opportunities that are often concealed within corporate transactional data. Frequently used analysis procedures can also be saved and replayed in the future. This component includes many other features such as the ability to combine data from multiple applications into a single, concise report and the ability to publish reports to the web.

Alert automatically manages, runs, and distributes reports based on scheduled events. This component enhances the ability to identify, analyse, and report on performance and trends concealed within the database and facilitates information delivery by automating aspects of the reporting process. Users can create, edit, and schedule tasks that can be processed on a time or event basis. Alert has direct communication with other Query & Analysis components such as XL.
