Cash inflows are the fuel that keeps businesses running. Revenue generation would be much easier if all customers paid on their agreed period. Customers miss payments for a variety of reasons, but proper identification and processing can speed the collection of receivables and improve cash flow forecasting. An Aged Receivables report details all receivables due from customers with the duration that they have been outstanding. Would an Aged Receivables report assist your organization with collecting overdue funds?

On occasion, database-level functions need to process data fields before those fields are ready for use in reporting tools. For example, referencing a TRANS subroutine to pull Fields from one file into another on U2 databases or a SUBSTRING function on a SQL database to extract the ID of a multi-part key field.

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.

New Feature – Web Datasource

New Feature – Web Datasource

The Web Datasource driver, an experimental feature in 5.4, connects Informer to web-based tool opening the door to many different types of datasources. The driver enables Informer to connect to a REST endpoint to retrieve data. This type of connection allows users to connect to data that is not installed internally in their environment. Users will be able to pull data from SaaS-based hosted solutions. For example, at Entrinsik, we have utilized the driver to connect Jira Software to Informer 5 to aid in the efficiency of our developmental process. Jira is where we keep track of all bugs and feature requests generated by customer use. See below on how we connected Infomer to Jira (Figure 1).

Data Governance: Using Field Security

Data Governance: Using Field Security

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. Good Data Governance answers questions like, ‘How can I trust the data?’, ‘How can I have traceability of key business decisions?’, ‘How do I keep my data from getting unwieldy and uncontrollable?’, and ‘How can I ensure that only authorized persons can see the data or parts of it?’. In Informer 5, we bolster our approach to the latter question, addressing data level, content level and functional level security.
