Ease of Use
Performa provides the following functionality:
Graphical Analysis: Analysis of the data using performance indicators to generate top-level graphs. Graphs can be drilled down, overlaid, and compared. Several analyses can be generated at the same time and saved for future use.
Intelligent Forms: The forms can be used in conjunction with a graph, showing the data behind the graph (all original records). Unusual records can be removed from the analysis to generate a more accurate graph. The Intelligent Forms can also be used on their own to perform analysis and searches.
Ad Hoc Queries and Reports: Users can generate their own queries and reports through an easy-to-use user interface. Queries and reports can be saved for future use.
Custom Reports and Forms: PERFORMA can be customized rapidly for each customer. Requested reports and forms can be added in order to meet all of your requirements for reporting and data analysis.
Ease of Use
PERFORMA provides an intuitive interface to access the information you want when you want it. Using a combination of dialog boxes and graphical analysis the user is quickly up and running. In no time you will be able to get the information you need. PERFORMA provides the ability to view your analysis from any angle as you drill down into the layers of your data. Or, you can compare the different facets of the data to realize trends and anomalies.
PERFORMA uses an intelligent, optimized data warehouse where the data is segmented, indexed, and pre-calculated for the optimal use of all Performance Indicators created. With data processing being performed on the server the horsepower necessary to generate optimal performance is being used effectively. The creation of each graph is performed by the client thus optimizing the server performance. This also creates small packages for transmission to the client. Overall performance is optimized.
Have it your way — Standalone or Client / Server
As a client/server application, PERFORMA is designed to minimize the impact on your corporate network. The graphical analysis is performed at the client based on small packets of data generated on the server. This method realizes the synergy of the two computers working together.
PERFORMA is an established standard in business intelligence software. With clients in the fleet management, financial budgeting, sales management, and human resource management business functions PERFORMA has clearly demonstrated its ability to meet your needs both now, and in the future.
PERFORMA can handle the demands of your environment. The implementation can be done in phases where only a few indicators and reports are set up initially.
Data: Performa can process your corporate data for delivery to the user. It readily supports all major vendors of relational databases and most desktop database technologies. You choose the final data warehouse implementation technology.
The intelligent data warehouse can aggregate data from various systems and database technologies.
Communications: Communications between the PERFORMA client and server can accommodate your business needs. Any network communications method is supported.
Flexible Implementation: PERFORMA provides you with the ability to use it straight out of the box as a data analysis tool.
