Feature spotlights

Multi-platform support

Run the software natively on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X, and run under IBM WebSphere® Application Server on z/OS®, zLinux, System i®, AIX®, and HP-UX. Simultaneously draw data from DB2®, Informix®, Oracle, SQL Server, and most other JDBC-compliant data sources, as well as multidimensional data sources that support XMLA connectivity.

Text analytics

Extract entities from unstructured data sources (either file-based or database-based) and display the results graphically. This function is capable of recognizing entities such as people, products, places, and organizations as well as the connections between them. It can be configured to recognize enterprise-specific vocabulary and extract key data from contracts, support records, field notes, and comments, giving the user insight into sources beyond typical structured information.

Ad-hoc reports

Drag and drop DataQuant queries onto an open canvas in runtime mode and select from a series of display options (charts or tabular presentations). Users can quickly and easily create their own sophisticated reporting objects, which can help to increase productivity and ease of use for all users, especially those who are new to DataQuant.

Task scheduling

Leverage several new options for scheduled objects beyond the procedures that could be scheduled previously. Queries, quick reports, and visual reports can now be scheduled. This new feature delivers the enhanced ability to schedule objects to run based upon user criteria, thus giving the user an autonomic approach to running DataQuant objects. In addition, there are now a wide variety of actions to take with these objects.

Quick-report wizard

Create a new type of grid-based GUI report with grouping, aggregation, charts, titles, fonts, and standard text formatting. With this new reporting facility wizard, users now have a simple, prompted approach to DataQuant report creation.
