This content describes how to use ReportCaster to ensure secure, automatic dissemination of critical information to the right
person in the right context. A cutting-edge report delivery engine and state-of-the-art business event monitoring provides
companies with a single point of control for real-time alerts, as well as a mechanism for fully automating, scheduling, storing,
and instantly distributing information – WebFOCUS reports and dashboards or third-party content – to anyone within or outside
ReportCaster's industry leading characteristics and features make it the benchmark for information delivery:
Scalability. Whether distributing month-end financials to key business executives, or collating and distributing hundreds of thousands
of brokerage statements, utility bills, or wireless phone invoices, ReportCaster is up to the task.
Bursting. ReportCaster can automatically burst a single report into sections, each to be sent to a different recipient -- perfect for
quickly and efficiently distributing HR information such as 401k status, vacation, and payroll information.
Flexibility. Reports and dashboards can be distributed in any format, including HTML, Excel, PDF, PowerPoint, and Active Technology reports,
our thin interactive format. Information can be distributed as attachments or as an embedded link to a central location to
reduce network traffic.
Security. Distributed information can be encrypted, compressed, and password-protected to ensure rapid, efficient, and secure delivery.
Ease of Development. Scheduling and subscription can be included as a key component of any WebFOCUS application using App Studio, InfoAssist,
or the ReportCaster API.
