Generic Data Explorer
In response to the need to build Internet-enabled complex systems quickly, and to maximise ease of use while
minimising IT support and maintenance, we have developed the Generic Data Explorer (GDE).
The GDE is a framework application that operates within Internet Explorer and resembles Microsoft's Management
Console based applications in its assembly. Applications built using the GDE are closely coupled with a server-side
(SQL Server, Oracle or Sybase, for example). The database connectivity is used to dynamically populate user
paths through the application and to access specific data subsets.
The GDE provides the following development and business benefits:
User account management and dynamic function level security
Integrated reporting capabilities, using HTML and Excel layout templates
Internet/intranet connectivity using disconnected
recordsets and optimised XML data transport for efficient network usage and scalability
Discrete component level construction and deployment for scalability and ease of maintenance
Integrated sorting, filtering and exporting of data selections. Rich user interface
Self installing, automatic updating
