Performance and the Development Interface

NGS-IQ is designed for IBM i. Your queries run in batch and the software is designed to encourage offline development, presentation, and analysis. For example, when using IQ Client™, NGS-IQ’s Windows query and reporting module, you need not be signed on to IBM i except when transferring a query definition to or from your PC and IBM i.

When using the SmartView™ OLAP module, you work offline over a read-only set of data that you can format, pivot, chart, highlight, and drill into without consuming IBM i resources. The queries that deliver the data to the IFS can be run from a job scheduling utility or on demand. Query developers can work in both 5250 and graphical user interfaces.

In contrast, DB2 Web Query developers have provided varying information about the CPW, memory, or disk arm requirements of DB2 Web Query. But IBM does point out that as a Java application, DB2 Web Query requires substantially greater CPW than Query/400.
