Report bursting scenarios

DocumentBurster vs. DocumentBurster Server

DocumentBurster has great report bursting, merging and distributing capabilities. This should be enough when you just start with document delivery and you have a relatively small number of reports to burst and distribute monthly. However, if you have more serious report distribution scenarios, if you are looking for a complete automated process, if you need advanced scheduling capabilities, if you have a big number of huge reports to be distributed to hundreds or even thousands of customers - in such cases you will be interested in DocumentBurster Server.

Report and document distribution server software

Report distribution server

DocumentBurster Server can be deployed as a central report distribution server. This is useful if you are looking for a single common place for distributing your reports, accessible to multiple employees and/or legacy applications from within your organization.

Report distribution scenarios

Multiple distribution channels

Your customers might need their reports to be sent through various distribution channels. Most of them will prefer email but others will rather use FTP. Some customers might have their own automated software systems to further process the reports and which might expect the input to be placed in a specified remote location. Others might have more strict security related requirements and will prefer the FTPS protocol. In some scenarios the generated reports should be published for the customers through an enterprise web portal like Microsoft SharePoint. In order to support these scenarios, DocumentBurster offers a broad range of distribution channels like email, local files, web portals, FTP, FTPs, SFTP and TFTP, Windows shared (network) paths, UNIX Samba servers and WebDAV servers.

In case you have a specific requirement, not covered by the above distribution methods, then DocumentBurster’s plug-in architecture allows smooth integration of custom distribution channels into the report distribution process.

Publish and upload reports to Microsoft SharePoint web portal

Publish reports to enterprise web portals

DocumentBurster has the ability to burst and publish reports to enterprise web portals so that your clients will be able to access the reports published for them on the Internet. Think about the situation when you have hundreds or thousands of customers or dealers and, with a single click, you can make the relevant individual reports available to each one of them on the web portal. DocumentBurster can deliver reports to Microsoft SharePoint, IBM WebSphere Portal, Oracle Portal, SAP NetWeaver, Tibco PortalBuilder, Samsung ACUBE Portal and to all of the major open source portal applications like Liferay Portal, Hippo portal, JBoss Enterprise Portal, eXo and Apache Portal.

Report scheduling software

Scheduling

Scheduling is a common requirement in business applications. DocumentBurster Server has advanced scheduling capabilities which can be configured as per your own needs. It is easy to schedule reports to be processed and distributed at a specific date and time, to distribute them hourly, daily, weekly, monthly or set up your own frequencies, every other day, third Monday of the month and so on.

Report encryption and report security

Security through encryption

When handling important financial reports, securing the distributed documents with a password might be an interesting feature for you. With a document open password (also known as a user password), users must type in the password you specify to open the PDF.

DocumentBurster can encrypt the business reports with an user (and/or owner) passwords using 128 or 40 bits encryption strength.

Stamp the burst and the delivered reports

Report stamping

For branding purposes, DocumentBurster has support to stamp the business reports using your company logo, official signatures or any other stamp or logo you might need.

Enhance legacy applications with report bursting and report distribution capabilities

Integration with your existing business software

DocumentBurster can really integrate and bring report bursting and report distribution capabilities to any existing business software. Just go through the DocumentBurster Report Distribution Case Studies to get an idea of how people are currently using the software with a various range of existing invoicing, accounting, payroll or big CRM and ERP kind of applications.

Burst and distribute any report format

Process and distribute any kind of report

By default DocumentBurster is able to process PDF and Excel reports. In real life you might need to process Word reports, OpenOffice reports or your own in-house reports. If required, DocumentBurster can be tailored to burst and process additional report formats with the help of an initial step which will convert all the non PDF reports to the standard PDF format.

Index and search support for the burst reports

Full-featured report text search engine

If required, DocumentBurster Server can be tailored to provide advanced storing, indexing and search capabilities for the reports which your organization is distributing. This might be useful if you distribute many reports each month and after some time you end up having a huge number of documents which need to be properly managed. Simply said, using the indexing and search capability will allow you to quickly find a report which was distributed one or two years ago, even if each month you distribute a lot of reports.

Custom report distribution and report splitting

Custom DocumentBurster deployment

If required, DocumentBurster can be tailored to be your next one-stop-shop document delivery solution.

DocumentBurster does not reinvent the wheel. Instead it integrates with existing cutting edge technologies in order to provide the best possible report distribution architecture. For example, advanced job processing capabilities are provided from a tight integration with Spring Batch while full-featured text search engine for the distributed reports might be achieved with the help of the Apache Lucene and Apache Solr projects.
