Full Sail Partners Utilizes Informer 5.4’s Templated Output
With Informer Templates, Full Sail Partners can rerun data as many times as they need on an ad hoc basis to include all necessary information within the template. For every single agreement, Full Sail is saving about 20 minutes, adding up to a significant amount of time saved. Full Sail has future-proofed their forms with Informer by using its ability to populate dynamic fields directly from the database.
The Web Datasource driver, an experimental feature in 5.4, connects Informer to web-based tools opening the door to many different types of datasources. The driver enables Informer to connect to a REST endpoint to retrieve data.
The key to reporting and extracting insights from data is being able to trust the data and its dissemination. It boils down to the essential aspects of Data Governance – the ability to access and consume data reliably while meeting the competing demands between IT security and business users.
MANAGING BIG DATA WITH INFORMER
When data is abundant, finding actionable insights can be like finding a needle in a haystack. The key to extracting insights from big data is preparing the Dataset in a meaningful manner, and then being able to interact with it efficiently. If it is cumbersome or time-consuming to obtain results, it quickly diminishes the value of the Dataset.
