What is Report Automation?
In short, report automation is the time-saving practice of being able to set your report templates to run at your convenience. Giving you the flexibility to build your report templates, set your desired variables and outputs, and schedule the report to run when you need it, without having to worry about manual runs or repetitive tasks.
How Windward Handles Report Automation
The Windward product suite helps you deliver automated reports, no matter what industry or situation your company is in. The Windward Java, .NET, and RESTful engines integrate quickly and cleanly into your process, and allow you to easily program your automated report runs in whatever language you’re using.
Your end users can then use the Windward AutoTag design tool to create report templates in Microsoft Office, a tool they already know. Meaning not only can you schedule reports easier, you’ll be able to create and edit those reports faster than ever.

The Windward Engine: Powerful Reporting and Document Generation
The power behind our reporting solutions is the Windward Engine. The Engine is a set of code libraries for integrating reporting and document generation into both internal and commercial software applications. The engine makes it easy for you to program automated reports in whatever way you choose. Each copy of the Engine comes with a library of helpful code-samples to start you on your way to powerful report automation.
The solution is easy to embed, and you can connect the Java Report Engine, .NET Report Engine, or the RESTful Report Engine to virtually any data source with any programming language.
Javelin: Web-based reporting portal for managing and scheduling report runs
Windward’s report and scheduling server allows for access and control from any application – regardless of programming language. It can generate a report at given times and email the report as an attachment, save the report to your server, or save it in the Javelin platform itself. You can easily see all the information on the start time, recurring pattern, variable values to use, output format, and emailing information (sender, recipient, and email subject text).
SharePoint Report Automation
Windward turns SharePoint into a unified, comprehensive and easy-to-use document generation system with additional, significant functionality including automation, scheduling, version control and indexing.
You can schedule typical reports like sales summaries, financial statements, status numbers, etc. But you can also schedule less obvious documents, such as a monthly letter distributed to 10,000 customers. Or a form that is mailed out periodically, with different sections depending on your clients’ tiers of service.
Save Your Company Money
Report scheduling goes well beyond convenience. It’s a hands-off approach that generates significant cost savings. You save money because Windward reduces the time and cognitive load required to create and modify templates.
