Story and Analytic Application – two ways of dealing with your requirements
Before you can decide upon the optimal reporting method for your needs, you will first need to define your own business case requirements. Within its environments for the creation of stories and analytical applications, SAC offers a wide range of features appropriate to your business case. Below you will find a few questions to guide you in your choice of development environment:
- Who will create reports? Self-service or experienced developers?
- What level of complexity do you want from the reports?
- What role do individual requirements play? Are you also looking at future developments?
Story - with self–service, reports are fast, automated and assisted
With the story, you use the SAC central development environment to flexibly implement your reporting and dashboarding. The story allows you to quickly create customizable reports with a simple level of detail.
The components of a story offer different ways to visualize and interact with data. In a story, you can create "pages" and place individual components, such as tables, charts, text modules and more, in them.
While the components offer a wide range of customization options for graphic settings, data connection, etc., the story components themselves are designed in such a way that they facilitate standardized report creation. This helps you to create stories quickly and automatically and is ideal for self-service scenarios, for example.
