Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) May 24, 2012
Windward, the enterprise reporting, document generation and business intelligence software specialists, today announced the official release of Javelin BI. Javelin BI is a package of web-based business intelligence tools that enable business professionals to access, via any web browser, vital information that drives key business decisions.
Javelin BI is the fusion of two popular Windward products, AutoQuery and Javelin. The AutoQuery template design tool is a Microsoft Office add-in for creating ad hoc and drill down reports, and the platform-agnostic Javelin report and scheduling server allows for access and control from any application, regardless of programming language.
"Javelin BI is innovative in that it is a web-based business intelligence solution where reports are created in Microsoft Office," said Shirley Clawson, CEO of Windward. "This gives our customers unique ease of use in designing, running and scheduling ad hoc reports."
Key benefits of the Javelin BI solution are on-demand information and customized queries, where documents contain only relevant data giving users access to more specific data or ad hoc reporting in seconds. Employees and customers from across an organization can obtain up-to-the-minute reports from multiple locations with unmatched flexibility, since the tool is deployed locally and can be accessed anywhere with an internet connection.
Another noteworthy feature of the Javelin BI tool is its scheduler. Users can schedule reports to be created and run automatically, so they can generate documents and reports while they're working on other business tasks. The powerful report scheduler offers a wide range of options and timetables, allowing reports to be run daily, yearly, and anywhere in between.
In addition, Javelin BI offers the ability to generate reports in any programming language. Plus, it is implemented using a simple RESTful API that can be called from browsers and all major programming languages.
