It can help ensure every decision maker within your organization can easily find, analyze and share the information they need to make better, faster and more profitable decisions.

Design and Implementation Considerations

While DB2 Web Query for i is delivered with your IBM i it does require planning and experience to ensure a productive implementation. To get the most out of Web Query, you should consider your underlying data, the metadata, and the presentation image you want to create. As well, attention should be given to how you want to organize and secure access to the underlying data, as well as assess configuration decisions and the need for optional components. And, of course, the correct PTF packages must be applied.

Tree Line Data's experience with Web Query can expedite the implementation process and help you navigate all of the details to ensure fast productivity, reduce your investment and get the most effective dashboards and graphical reports into the hands of your users quickly and flawlessly. In addition to presenting data in ways that traditional reporting and Query/400 cannot, Web Query also allows you to leverage the impressive speed and power of DB2 using IBM's SQL Query Engine (SQE). Tree Line Data can help you to identify and implement indexing and database modernization techniques to fully leverage this new power, achieving improvements in reporting and ensuring your new queries return lightning-fast results.
