ERM USA A web Reporting tool for Legacy Databases. © 2002 United Security Applications Need for a Web Reporting tool for legacy System Most of the archival but important data is many a times on Legacy systems. Though this data is important the reporting tools available today are mainly client server type. There is a need to have a web reporting tool so as to make it available throughout the enterprise. © 2002 United Security Applications Limitations of some of the other tools Most of the tools allow you to create a static report and hence the user can not make any intelligent search by changing parameters. It is a skilled job to create those reports using some available tools like Crystal Reports etc. © 2002 United Security Applications ERM – a Web Reporting tool ERM overcomes this problem by creating a Schema which is specific to your needs. It allows you to attach the labels that are relevant to your need. A parameter driven search can be fired hence the user can twist the searches to suite his/her needs. © 2002 United Security Applications. Configurator – Schema Definition Schema is that set of information from the legacy database which is relevant to your specific needs. Configurator program makes connection to your legacy database and allows you to choose only those tables and fields which are relevant to you. It also allows you to specify the labels you would like to use to describe these fields. You can specify the relation between the databases. You can also specify various display formats in which you would like to view the information. © 2002 United Security Applications Web Interface Web interface would first make a connection to the schema which is on the local machine. It would use the information within the schema for its own interface. It would then fire the searches on the legacy databases using the information in the schema. © 2002 United Security Applications Technical Limitations This software can work on the legacy system which can be connected through the ODBC connection. © 2003 United Security Applications. Example of a SMS System SMS is a SQL database which has a complex structure of data about the hardware in the Enterprise. Using the configurator we have chosen only those fields we wish to fire queries. We have set up the display labels for the same. We have also set the display formats. © 2003 United Security Applications.
