    Web-based business intelligence with mapping features

    Background and Objectives

    The client is one of the oldest Natural Gas delivery service companies in US. They are the nation's third largest combined electricity and natural gas delivery companies with approximately 5 million natural gas and electric customers.

    The key objective of this project was to develop a Report generation component, which serves as a Web-based business intelligence with mapping features. This component would provide simplified end-user reporting in a controlled, business-oriented environment.

    Key Aspects of the Project

    • System study
    • Developing a map-enabled web based application with query shell integrated with the existing system
    • Creation of a critical component to facilitate Ad hoc reporting
    • Exporting the reports in multiple formats e.g. PDF, XLS, and DOC
    • Database compatibility for Oracle, SQL Server, DB 2
    • Facilitating Map based query analysis

    Product Description

    1.1 Product Perspective

    1.2 Product Features

    • Standard Reports – Commonly run reports that may optionally include parameters for content and format flexibility.
    • Report Domains – Reporting environments appropriate to business users’ affiliations or interests set up and maintained by the administrator. Each domain contains all the data sources needed for the types of reports and graphs users will want to run or create.
    • Personal reports – These are reports that are generated using query shell and a provision is given to save such reports as “My Reports”.
    • E-Mail – Every user having access to reports can receive timely information via e-mails in printable format.
    • User Groups and Security – Identifies individual users and the security associated with them; administrators can combine multiple users into groups to allow for group-level report association.
    • Upload and download Reports – User can download and upload the reports in any formats.
    • Export – Users can view the information in the format that best suits their needs and export to multiple format support – including, Excel, Doc and PDF
    • MAP Navigation – User can zoom, ZoomOut, Pan, and FullExtent etc in the report with map
    • Identify – User can click on any feature of map and view related information
    • Rendering the selected features
    • Zoom to the selected features
    • Query Analysis– Buffering and Spatial analysis

    1.3 Product Perspective
