The Benefits of Ad Hoc Reporting with Windward

What is Ad Hoc Reporting?

Put simply, it’s getting the information you need exactly when you need it. More specifically, it’s based on the Latin phrase literally meaning “for this;” ad hoc means “for this particular situation” in everyday English. Ad hoc reporting, therefore, is reporting that allows you to call up your latest data at will.

How Windward Handles Ad Hoc Reporting

You need to deliver customized reports on the end user’s schedule, not the IT department’s. You shouldn’t be required to go to a developer each time you want to modify or create a custom report template.

The Windward product suite helps you deliver ad hoc reports no matter what industry your company is in. The Windward Java, .NET, and RESTful engines integrate quickly and cleanly into your process.

Non-developer end users then use the Windward AutoTag design tool to create report templates in Microsoft Office, a tool they already know. Users run and distribute those reports when and where they want, in widely used and widely accepted formats.
