1. How can the FineReport help with software development?
In the traditional development of database-based software, the main work is to enter the data through editing JSP/ASP/PHP codes and to read and display the data in the database. This method of data entry (filling) and data display (reports) has low development efficiency and a high maintenance workload after project delivery. Moreover, the revision costs are extremely high even when there is only a little change in client requirements.
With FineReport BI and reporting tool, code editing is no longer necessary. With the report template designer, users can make a template available for data display and data entry through drag and drop, then save the templates under directories specified by the FineReport report server. If the final user requires remote access to a template via the browser, the FineReport report server will automatically parse the template specified by the user to a zero-client HTML page in the browser. In this way, the user can directly check or enter data in the browser.
2. Who needs FineReport?
It is easy for the specialized technicians of software companies to learn the usage of FineReport business intelligence and reporting tool. The integration of FineReport in software products (e.g., ERP, CRM, and OA) can quicken the software development progress, increase software stability, greatly reduce later software maintenance costs and improve the satisfaction of the final users.
With FineReport, enterprise software can be improved and enhanced to meet any requirements. In this way, the enterprise can escape its dependence on software companies and become independently capable of data processing, data analysis and report making after a simple training process. In addition, the original enterprise software systems are no longer unchanging static systems but dynamic systems that can be changed, improved and enhanced on demand. In this way, enterprises can transcend the vicious cycle of 'new software is bought every year, yet cannot meet the annual changing demands' in the software industry.
