Qport® SmartView SmartView PDF

Qport® SmartView users enjoy the ease of use and flexibility of a Microsoft® Excel-style interface while using the scalability and power of IBM® i to support analytics. Instead of maintaining massive Excel workbooks with complex formulas and pivot tables, users can quickly interact with multidimensional displays of read-only data.

Due to its design, Qport SmartView  can provide answers in seconds— whether you want to see sales by division and territory; product orders by quarter, month and week; shipments by distribution center; aged payables in 30, 60, and 90-day buckets; or any other type of analytical report.

You can format, pivot, filter, chart, drill into, and analyze your data in virtually unlimited ways. Your matrix can include calculated values like margins, averages, totals, percentages of totals, and other information at each drill-down level.

Integrated Data Visualization

Qport SmartView allows you to design and customize charts, save charts within your matrix, and design chart templates you can share with others. Qport SmartView charts are in HTML5 format and can be exported in a wide range of popular graphic formats to use in presentations or elsewhere.

You can also select fonts, type sizes, type styles and colors, background colors, titles, numeral formats, critical value highlighting rules, and other elements to make your data easy to see and understand.

Fast Access to Real-Time Operational Data

You can refresh a SmartView matrix with new data in one click. If you like, you can password protect your matrix so other Qport SmartView users can analyze the data but not refresh the matrix or change your layout.

Qport SmartView includes a built-in zip utility so you can zip and share matrices with other Qport SmartView users via the Web or email. Even traveling or off-network users can open, study, and work with the data you want them to see.
