Atlanta, GA. — Enterprises Computing Services, Inc. (ECS), a software development and services company, announced the release of the enterprise version of ECSDTool, an enhanced version of their business intelligence querying tool.
The new edition enables scalability from single users to multiple users in large enterprises, as well as providing the efficiencies and user-convenience afforded by a true client server application. With the Enterprise edition the business manager, decision maker, database marketer, etc., can easily analyze data, discover trends, and create multidimensional scenarios including OLAP cubes with minimal to no dependency on technical resources. Database requests and intermediate results reside on the server in this latest version, freeing desktop resources and reducing network traffic.
ECSDTool has been developed to give the business user the ability to easily execute fast, complex queries against large, multiple databases. Its intuitive interface easily guides the user through the process of viewing, sorting and analyzing data. Drag-and-drop functionality allows users to see multidimensional views of their data and the “Pin” tool lets users quickly filter out data and “drill down” to see only the data they need. Results are stored on the server and can be shared. Key benefits of the new version of ECSDTool (in addition to easily producing reports and performing data analysis without dependency on technical resources) include: vertical and horizontal security features, push technology, and the opportunity to share cubes and queries, providing information to fuel individual or collaborate decision making.
“ECSDTool puts the power of ad hoc querying and reporting in the hands of teams or departments who can massage the data until the appropriate information is available for presentations or decision making,” says Hari Iyer, CEO of ECS. “The people who actually need the data – mid level and executive managers – usually have to wait for specialized reports from IT departments. With ECSDTool, the people who need data can now get to it quickly, view it, and share it in a clear, concise manner that makes sense to them.”
ECSDTool users need to know their business but not the structure of their databases. The tool analyzes the database relationships and presents it in an easy-to-read graphical format similar to a Microsoft Windows Explorer view. Then it’s just a matter of dragging and dropping to create views that answer critical business questions. ECSDTool automatically creates graphs and SQL statements.
Key features of the enhanced software include an intuitive and easy-to-use interface, the “Cube” technology for creating multidimensional views of data, the “Pin” feature for quickly filtering data, exporting capabilities to Excel or HTML, easy set-up using thin client at the desktop connecting to DB connectivity layers residing on the server, COM technology utilizing N-Tier architecture allowing language independence, vertical and horizontal security applicable to individual columns and filters, and more.
