Data Access? Meet Managers and Analysts Where They Are

Posted on June 18, 2024 by Bill Langston

The reporting and analytics software marketplace is mature. Historically, business intelligence software vendors designed their solutions to address every step of the data extraction, transformation, and presentation process. As a result, many applications became increasingly complicated and challenging to deploy. Today, most IBM i customers already have several data analysis and visualization tools in place. Users simply want to import clean, aggregated, and formatted slices of data into those familiar tools.

The complexity and scale of your IBM Db2 on i transaction processing database can be overwhelming to business users. SQL Views can help, but even when some staff members have SQL skills, the best approach is an IBM i-based solution that shines at data extraction and preparation and can distribute output files in the most useful formats. It shouldn't require SQL skills or attempt to duplicate the functionality of Microsoft Excel, Power BI, and other widely used tools. This complementary view of meeting users where they are drives NGS’s development priorities.
