webEIS Software

webEIS software is an Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) application for the Web. It enables users to create interactive documents quickly and easily and then to publish those documents on the Web as either Java applets or using JavaServer Pages (JSP) technology. With webEIS, powerful decision-support capabilities are combined with a friendly, easy-to-use environment.

OLAP documents are produced through an interface that provides a high level of user interaction. An easy-to-use, drag-and-drop environment enables business analysts to build their own Web-based documents for sharing and viewing information. They can access data, drill down on areas of interest, and produce reports in a variety of formats. Data that is stored in multidimensional data structures is viewed and navigated with a Web browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape, providing a familiar interface.

Developers can use webEIS to create customized OLAP viewer InformationBeans, which are JavaBeans that take advantage of the advanced data access and decision-support functionality of SAS software. In addition, developers can reuse InformationBeans that are created by webEIS in future Java applets or applications. This results in shorter development cycles and more time spent on strategic projects.

In short, webEIS provides
