 New Product from Momentum Utilities is Tightly Integrated to LANSA's Repository to Provide Data Access and Presentation of iSeries Data

28th January 2002 --- Sydney Australia: LANSA, a leading provider of e-business, Wireless and advanced graphical application development tools and solutions, announced the release of LANSA Reporter. LANSA Reporter provides an advanced Client/Server reporting system for retrieving, processing, transforming and presenting iSeries data. LANSA Reporter provides tight integration with LANSA's Repository to allow LANSA customers and business partners to leverage their investment in LANSA for information retrieval. 

"We are excited by this opportunity to expand our product portfolio to address the growing market for information retrieval and data access solutions," said Bill Benjamin, vice president of business development at LANSA. "LANSA already provides an ad hoc query and reporting capability with LANSA/Client. LANSA Reporter expands our data access and reporting capability for creating complex, high volume iSeries-based reports. Many of our existing customers have been looking for ways to enhance their reporting and data presentation capability. LANSA Reporter provides our customers and partners with a leading edge, proven technology to address these business requirements." 

LANSA Reporter is developed by LANSA partner Momentum Utilities, who specialize in the development, supply and support of data retrieval and presentation products for the IBM iSeries market. Momentum has been an IBM partner for over 12 years and its products are installed and supported in over 2,000 sites and 70 countries. As part of the partnership, Momentum will be using LANSA for the Web - LANSA's award winning e-business development tool - to develop a Web browser interface for LANSA Reporter. 

Some of the key capabilities provided by LANSA Reporter are: 

  • Direct Integration with LANSA's iSeries-based Repository, allowing LANSA customers to leverage their field and file descriptions, virtual fields, pre-determined joins, help text and much more.

  • Intuitive Windows report design and report execution. 

  • Advanced report design, data extraction and data manipulation - without the need for technical or programming skills. 

  • Optimized performance from compiled programs - no reliance on notoriously slow SQL and ODBC drivers. 

  • Built-in security features that control authorized access to data and reporting functions.

  • Ability to process large volumes of data. 

  • Fully managed system resources. 

"We're always on the lookout for solutions that can help our customers address a complete range of application development needs," concluded Benjamin. "LANSA Reporter fills a need for information retrieval that many of our customers have asked us for."
