As businesses prepare for this weekend's switch to Standard Time, enterprises that use Windward's business intelligence software will be able to rely on built-in tools to help with the changeover. Javelin BI, web-based business intelligence tool, includes an automated scheduler that enables companies to generate vital business reports automatically, on schedule and without interruption.
"No matter what time zone you're in, you can count on having the information you need, when you need it," said Annette Grotz, marketing manager at Windward. "Our reliable scheduler lets you automate your workload and saves you even more time, so you gain well more than a single hour in a single day. You're gaining hundreds of hours, week after week."
Javelin BI includes a wide array of time-saving devices. In addition to the automated report scheduler, which takes the work out of remembering to run and distribute the reports that guide key business decisions, it takes just minutes to set the criteria for ad hoc and drill-down queries. IT departments don't need to build cubes and copy the data to them because Javelin BI directly calls a business's databases and other data sources.
Plus, pooled resources let companies deploy business intelligence while making the most of an existing system setup. And because Javelin is platform-agnostic, users can generate reports in any programming language, including Java, Ruby, Python or the .NET family of languages.
