NQUEST is a data warehousing and Extraction application designed to facilitate enterprise reporting and analysis. The data obtained from the main source is cleaned, transformed and cataloged and is made available to be used by managers and other business professional for reporting, data mining, online analytical processing, market research and decision support.
The data warehousing module mainly involves selectively importing data from any host database to a Data warehouse Database through a data migration tool (NLS ETL Tool) During this process, no modification of the data or the database structure will be done on the host database.
Once the data is available on the Data warehouse, the reporting team can deploy reports and enquiries on the NLS Report Server which will have direct network access to the Data warehouse. The NLS Report Server will host the report templates and enquiry logic that will allow end users to run reports generated from the exported data via a standard web browser.
