Ad Hoc Query
Most users of data are non-technical people who need to retrieve data from different sources for their particular needs. IT departments don’t have the personnel bandwidth or desire to work with all business users to train them in modeling and programming. This is where ad hoc query tools bridge the gap. Empower IT’s ad hoc query tools are user friendly, graphical user interface (GUI) based systems that do not require the need for in-depth technical knowledge.
By definition, an ad hoc query is one that is designed in the moment, not predetermined. It can include different relationships such as one-to-many, many-to-one, and many-to-many. End users can easily construct complex queries using GUI navigation in a drag and drop manner.
Ad hoc query tools allow end users to discover relationships among seemingly disparate data sets and gain business insight that might not be captured otherwise.
