The EnergySys Cloud provides a number of beautiful standard reports, as well as ad-hoc reporting.
Third-Party Reporting Tools
The web-services interface provides the means to report using any OData-compliant third-party tool, such as Excel, PowerBI, Tableau and Spotfire. Simply connect to the EnergySys data feed, and use the reporting capabilities provided by the tool. This is an immensely powerful way to export, analyse and report on the business data, since it means that users can work in a familiar reporting environment using user-specific templates.
Alternatively, the EnergySys Cloud Platform provides a reporting service, based on Jasper Reports. This provides the means to produce formal reports as well as undertake ad-hoc data analysis.
The standard app comes with a range of beautiful reports, ready for you to use with your data. These are easily shared with your internal users and partners, as it’s all stored securely in the cloud. The reporting portal has separate login facilities, so you can give partners access to the reports they need to see without giving them access to your application.
It is also straightforward to add budget figures to the system, and to generate reports comparing these to allocated data.
Extensive export options are available, including PDF, Excel, CSV, Word, and RTF. Dashboard reports, like the one for daily allocation, give your users the chance to drill down, with graphs and charts to better understand the data and its performance.
Report formats vary between different statutory regimes, but most statutory reports require a set of data to be gathered from multiple objects before being laid out in a pre-specified format. This data can include metered values, for example, or calculated total daily production at facilities, or allocated production at fields. The Statutory Reporting module allows calculations to be specified to gather this information, and to record it against pre-defined report sections and data codes. Each section can include individual items, such as the export volume for the month, or can contain repeating information such as all individual tanker exports.
PAS allows any number of report structures to be created, and rules defined to calculate the data for any facility. This provides the necessary information for the particular statutory report laid out in the Reporting system.
The mechanism can be used to calculate derived results of any kind, whether or not they are associated with a formal report.
Ad Hoc Reporting
The reporting capabilities of the EnergySys Cloud Platform don’t stop there, though. For times when you want to investigate specific data, and chart it or export it, there’s ad hoc reporting. You can build charts, dashboards, tables and cross-tabs, and combine them all to create templates that you can use yourself or share with your team.
