Ad Hoc Reporting Definition - Basic information about what ad hoc reporting is, why business need it, and what to look for in ad hoc reporting tools, particularly ease of use for business users combined with power and flexibility for database analysts. An ad hoc report is a report that is created on the fly, displaying information in a table or a chart that is the result of a question that has not already been codified in a production report. There is a limit to the number of such production reports and business questions that can be anticipated and coded in advance so that users can consult them whenever they want. Moreover, as businesses are always changing, the questions people want to ask of their data are always changing, so any reporting system needs to accommodate the creation and running of ad hoc reports. Making that an easy process for the average business user is key because most ad hoc reporting tools are designed for database experts to use, often requiring knowledge of structured query language, or SQL...

Ad Hoc Reporting on the Desktop and Mobile Devices - You’ve been able to do ad hoc reporting on the desktop. What about sharing this information with mobile users? Is there a workflow that would allow you to take a report and push it to someone on a mobile device and allow them to do analysis? Yes, let’s take a look at that. The idea is that we can take that interactive report that you’ve just seen us using that on a PC or a laptop or a desktop and actually use it on a mobile device. So a similar operational report or an ad hoc query, that content can be taken directly from the InetSoft system and made available to folks in the field or on the go. And we’ve really done a lot of work on this from a visualization standpoint to make things very crisp and clear so folks understand very easily what they’re looking at. And when I said they can take it to go, they also have an offline capability. So some very they get some nice interactive controls,. Anybody can come in here and figure out how to get the information they need with that native Apple experience or tablet experience, but they can also work with it offline if they need to. You can definitely see how ad hoc reporting and mobile BI can help customers keep up with the speed of business. Now it’s easy for us to see the BI solution and how many different types of users, whether they’re analysts, finance, marketing, maybe even sales managers can use it, but what about your executive users? What about people who don’t necessarily have time to create or modify reports? Often they just want to be able to scan results and drill into the details when something’s off...
