Overall Satisfaction

Informer is being used by many of my clients to handle their standard reports and daily ad-hoc requests. Many of the clients have been use to Unidata's UniQuery and Informer has given them that comfort level to write their own reports. It has given them an easy to use point and click tool for quick access to their data. Many are looking towards continued use as they migrate from UniData to SQL.
  • Quick report creation through the use of the report wizards and the point and click web version
  • Ability to access various databases: Unidata, SQL
  • Continued development of the dashboard functionality. Executives want the quick access to their numbers.
  • For prior users of UniQuery, Informer provides immediate return. Someone can skim the user guide and write their first report in just a few minutes or hours.
Informer is a reasonably priced tool to continue easy report writing against Unidata databases and for many other databases as well.
On SQL, there are so many tools available. My clients are higher education specific and they have access to low-cost or no-cost alternatives. On Unidata, this is a great tool and will continue to be so. That being said, Informer is not just for Higher Education users.
