Shibui-IT™ ad hoc analysis may be used to create a report that does not already exist, or drill deeper into a given static report to get more details about customer accounts, product lines, or regions. The applications may be also used to get more detailed data for the existing areas covered by a static report. Shibui-IT™ analysis tool is specifically designed to facilitate ad hoc analysis by providing quick, easy access to data from the original source. Allowing the user, typically an analyst, to access data through a point, drag-and-drop interface, and eliminates the need to request data and analysis from another expert group within the company. This Shibui-IT™ feature allows quicker response times when a specific business question comes up to help the user respond to issues and make business decisions right away.
