Windward, a leading provider of business intelligence, document generation and reporting software, has announced the first public Version 12 presentation. "Discover What Windward Reporting Engine and AutoTag Version 12 Can Do For You" is a free express webinar designed to introduce technical and non-technical professionals alike to new features in the popular reporting software suite. The webinar will take place on Wednesday, May 8, at 8 am Mountain Time.
"Version 12 introduces some great new functionality, and this is the easiest and quickest way to experience it," said Logan Miles, Windward sales engineer and webinar host. "In just 20 minutes you can see all the new features in action."
AutoTag is a report template design and ad hoc reporting tool that is a key component of the Windward reporting software solution. Companies take their data and insert it into templates designed in Microsoft Word and Excel. Reports and documents then are generated in the Windward Engine, which is available for .NET or Java, or via the web-based reporting server, Javelin. The final product can be output in a wide range of formats, including DOCX, XLSX, PDF, HTML, direct to printer, RTF, XLS, WordML, TXT, and CSV.
The webinar will cover many Engine's and AutoTag 12's enhancements, including:
•OData support. OData includes the best of both XML (hierarchy) and SQL (large database and organization) combined.
•SQL and XML Connection Debuggers. These tools help users analyze and fix wonky connections to data sources
•Added Excel features. Support for hidden rows/columns, frozen rows/columns, worksheets that are not printed, the cell range set for the printer, and horizontal page breaks.
•New “document join” capabilities. Users can now join multiple generated documents and reports into a single PDF.
•Data Count tool. Useful for debugging templates that are using up too much memory, the tool tells you exactly how many times the forEach loops in your template will iterate.
"Upgrading to version 12 is free for anyone who is current on maintenance and support, so we encourage all customers to take advantage of this free webinar," added Miles. "We're also happy to answer audience questions during the presentation."
