Protect Your Investment Quickly & Accurately

Avoid A Whole New Investment

We spoke about one option to replace Discoverer; far from protecting your investment, this becomes a whole new investment – one which will require deep pockets – and a lot of time. The only way to truly protect your investment is to use a solution built as a Discoverer Replacement that includes:

  • A Migration Utility – Fast and Accurate.
  • The Ability to Merge EULs, Maintenance of the Existing Report Infrastructure Intact.
  • A Facility to Run Reports from Excel & Mobile An Easy to Learn with Added Functionality and Features.
  • Inherent EBS Responsibility Security & User Authentication.
  • The Provision of Dashboards with Pre-Built Visualizations, Report Scheduling, Distribution & Bursting.
  • The Ability to get EBS DFF/KFF.
  • Drilldown Capability Through Reports, Dashboards, Excel and Mobile.
  • Multiple Output.
  • In-Memory Analytics & Data Mashups.
  • The Ability Connect to Other Data Sources including Cloud Applications.

Managed properly, the migration of Discoverer will provide you with an opportunity, without the need for a huge budget or a time-consuming project, to:
