Cizer.Net Reporting (CNR) is an application that provides technology for gathering, manipulating, analyzing and viewing data for the purpose of helping enterprise users make better business decisions.
Cizer helps people make better decisions by making accurate, current, and relevant information available to them when they need it.
Business intelligence can be defined as the art of sifting through large amounts of data, extracting pertinent information, and turning that information into knowledge upon which actions can be taken.
Cizer.Net Reporting is designed to support the process of Business Intelligence by making data accessible to the people who need it in the browser environment.
CNR supports a centralized catalogue of queries and parameters, maintained in a single location, that serves as the foundation for enterprise wide reporting.
Why is Cizer.Net Reporting Unique?
There is a lot of hype today about the value of Business Intelligence and how you can get the best tool for the job. What we at Cizer have realized is that Business Intelligence is about supporting the way individual companies do business with a tool that provides a universal reporting solution.
There is no ‘magic bullet’ that will transform the data that currently flows thru your business into a one-size-fits-all solution. Rather you must know how to apply the tools to the data in order to form a perfectly functioning channel, designed to flow the way you need it to.
Because the Cizer toolset relies on a solid Microsoft Platform, yet can connect to any OLE DB data source – we bring your BI to the desktop in the most flexible way possible.
CNR 4.0 now seamlessly integrates with Sharepoint, Business Scorecard Manager, SQL 2005 Data Warehouse Solutions, and many other internet / intranet applications.
Cizer works with all these tools, but most of all Cizer is designed to work for you.
