Easily View Data in Real Time with Interactive Charts

Organizations need the ability to communicate complex data quickly and effectively. This optional Interactive Charts Advanced Feature allows all users to retrieve, view and analyze the data they need in order to gain better insight into daily operations. Users can easily look at summarized high level data and quickly identify trends affecting the organization. Users have the ability to “drill down” to greater levels of detail, customize the view based upon their specifications and use visualizations such as gauges, pie charts, bar graphs, candle plots – over 40 different chart types.

Save Resources With Pre-Built Reports

Evisions focus on the speed and ease of implementations means you can realize the benefits of Argos quickly. With pre-built reports built by Evisions experts and using the Evisions CO-OP User Community, an on-line library that allows Argos users to collaborate and share DataBlocks and reports, you can start reporting out of the box.

View Your Data Anywhere, Anytime

This much-anticipated feature allows users to view Argos reports and dashboards directly in a web browser in addition to the current method of running them in the Argos client software. The Web Viewer has an updated interface suitable for a wide variety of platforms including PCs, Macs, and tablets (iPad, Android).

Add Style and Functionality with Advanced Features

Be bold! Dare to take your organization beyond the typical everyday reports by using Argos Advanced Features. With attractive graphics and dynamic controls, Argos users can quickly answer their own questions and check progress on important benchmarks. Scheduling and delivery features allow you to distribute reports, charts, and data cubes, whenever and wherever you like. Plus, Argos advanced features seamlessly integrate with your existing technology, from web portals to desktop applications.


Scheduling & Delivery

Discover the time savings with Scheduling and Delivery. The Scheduling and Delivery feature gives users the ability to schedule any report, data extract or OLAP cube for any time and frequency. Users will be saved from the mundane process of manually running reports daily, weekly, monthly, etc. and then exporting them to an email to be sent throughout the organizations or printing and manually distributing. Scheduling and Delivery creates huge gains in efficiency – create the report once and use over and over with little to no intervention. Additionally, report bursting functionality is built into the scheduling and delivery feature. This allows reports to be “burst” or page break on criteria in the report so specific individuals only get the section of the report that is relevant to them. Often used in letter generation, budget reporting, departmental reporting, this capability is a huge benefit to users and administrators. By automating repetitive tasks, reports are created and distributed when needed, without error, and without costly support time. The scheduling and delivery feature also integrates with your imaging or document management system. Scheduling reports and delivering them to users provides a consistent, reliable and seamless way to present data to all users.

OLAP Cubes

A vital component of today’s information access strategies is allowing users to perform analysis that is comprehensive, dynamic, and truly interactive. With our optional OLAP feature (On-Line Analytic Processing), users can selectively extract data, view it across multiple dimensions, and from multiple different perspectives, to gain greater insights, uncover relationships, and identify key patterns and trends.

OLAP cubes structure data hierarchically – the way managers think of their departments – but also allows users to rotate that data, changing the relationships to get more detailed insight into performance. This feature also provides advanced capabilities for complex calculations, trend analysis, and sophisticated data modeling. Once a user has the data in the order and format they desire, they can easily present their data graphically through charting on the fly, or export the data to Excel to share with others. Advanced users can also perform statistical analysis with forecasting and longitudinal (year over year) studies.

With Argos these cubes can be built off of ANY data source – you are not dependant on a data warehouse. The OLAP feature can fulfill many reporting needs with a single object and enables end-users to perform ad hoc analysis of data in multiple dimensions, providing the insight and understanding they need for better decision making.

Filters – parameters offered to the user to exclude unwanted data in the cube. Reduces the amount of data, which allows the underlying database to take advantage of existing indexes to speed the retrieval and aggregation of the data.

Available Dimensions – data categories that can be dragged to either the Column (C) or Row (D) dimension area. Users can also click on the arrow to filter, sort or enable forecasting of the dimension.

Column Dimensions – one or more dimensions selected by the user to be displayed as columns in the cube. Multiple dimensions are nested and clicking the “+” in the work area will expand the columns to display additional dimensions.

Row Dimensions – dimensions selected by the user to be displayed as rows. Like Column Dimensions, multiples can be selected and configured, and viewed by clicking the “+” in the work area.

Measures – calculations made using the selected parameters and dimensions. Users can modify measures or build custom measures by clicking the arrow to retrieve the Measure Manager. Measures can be calculated using value, percents, ranks, running totals, sum, etc. and can be filtered and formatted.

Interactive Charts

Organizations need the ability to communicate complex data quickly and effectively. This optional Interactive Charts Advanced Feature allows all users to retrieve, view and analyze the data they need in order to gain better insight into daily operations. Users can easily look at summarized high level data and quickly identify trends affecting the organization. Users have the ability to “drill down” to greater levels of detail, customize the view based upon their specifications and utilize visualizations such as gauges, pie charts, bar graphs, candle plots – over 40 different chart types.

Interactive Charts can attach to many different databases to show statics from different sources at one time. With the use of the optional API feature, Interactive Charts can be securely accessed from anywhere, by any user, through a web page or portal.

API

In order to enable true enterprise reporting, organizations must be able to get the information to the masses. With the use of the optional API feature, users can achieve a fast and fully-integrated view of the timely, accurate, and personalized business information that is most relevant and important to them. Leverage your existing technologies to securely distribute reports, making it easier for users to access them. Utilizing standard HTML links this module will enable the launch of dashboards and reports through a portal or web page. The API module encourages broader use and availability of reporting across all users groups. Users can securely access Argos reports anywhere, on or off campus without constraints. The API module will allow third-party applications and webpages to run Argos reports and dashboards outside of the Web Viewer. You can also leverage your Single-Sign-On (LDAP) servers for authentication and security. Dashboards and reports are then delivered with AES or HTTPS encryption so sensitive data is not vulnerable at any time.
