    Database front-end. Accesses relational databases by using familiar
    business terminology. Client/server tool. Supports popular
    relational databases. Executes ad hoc data queries and specific data
    retrieval routines. Gives each object simple name describing business

    End user data access solution/front-end for relational databases.
    Enables end users to access relational databases from the desktop
    PC/workstation using familiar business terminology. Provides data
    representation, query and semantically dynamic objects methods for

    graphing capabilities, and support for DDE protocols under Windows.
    Using the data representation technology, the user manipulates
    familiar business terms to extract data. Universes of Objects,
    defined by the IS manager, are representations of the database for a
    particular group of users, or a particular application. The
    Query-On-Business Objects technique defines the natural elements of a
    query, including the information to view, the conditions on the
    results and the sort order. Provides an end user report generator
    using a brick metaphor similar to resizable spreadsheet cells.
    Creates reports by arranging the bricks containing objects, text or
    user-defined variables and formulas. Graphing capabilities include
    2D/3D graphs and set of points graph types. Users can display query
    results, graphs and reports on-screen simultaneously, using windows
    and icons to compose an electronic dashboard. Allows IS managers to
    control the information environment, the security of the data servers
    and manage the integrity of the information. Through a client/server
    batch technique, end users can submit queries in a deferred mode.
