Need assistance with developing a BI Analytics Strategy with Meridian IT

Data management is a key strength of the IBM Power Systems platform. Tools like Query/400 have been central to reporting processes for years. However, Query/400, being a 5250 app, is challenging for new users. It demands deep database knowledge to use effectively. Consequently, business users often rely on IT for report development.

Most organisations are very familiar with MS Excel, which lends itself to multiple copies of the same report or reinventing the wheel every time. With tools like IBM DB2 Web Query you can get a single sense of the truth, which can be integrated in your existing business process and/or environment (i.e. monthly schedules or embedded into your own portal.
