Transform application data and static files into high-integrity XML feeds for reporting & document generation.
INTEGRATE DATA & CONTENT
FOR DOCUMENT GENERATION
Most tools and applications are not built with automated document generation in mind, so getting their content into documents and reports often means resorting to manual procedures like copy and paste or exporting to an uncontrolled file format.
That’s why we created Reporting Central. It’s an extensible platform for hosting lightweight reporting applications that help to transform key data and content from your existing information infrastructure into live data feeds suitable for document generation.
Reportable™ series applications can be installed into Reporting Central to transform static file formats and information assets into version-controlled data feeds suitable for document generation.
Spreadsheets allows you to upload, baseline and report on Microsoft Excel, Open Office and CSV files, whilst Graphics allows you to do the same for popular image and illustration formats.
Connectable™ series applications are used to bridge data held in service-oriented tools and applications like Microsoft Sharepoint or data stores like SQL Server, DB2 and Oracle.
Connectable applications can be scheduled to extract and version content from the bridged data source at specific times, or provide live proxying to data when requested by a document generation tool like Author XG or IBM Rational Publishing Engine.
Embeddable™ series applications are used to generate micro-content for document generation tools like Author XG and IBM Rational Publishing Engine.
Charts can be used to generate a wide range of graphs and plots, whilst Codes makes it easy to insert barcodes, QR codes and other stamps into generated documents.
EFFECTIVE CONTROL FOR ALL
YOUR DATA & CONTENT SOURCES
Hooking up data from your existing tools and applications with a document generation engine is one thing, but doing so without invalidating the goal of automation –improving document quality and integrity– is another.
Reporting Central keeps you on track. Its intelligent storage and versioning controls ensure that the accuracy, chronology and provenance of all content exposed for document generation can be reliably verified.
