SQL reporting is the process of extracting data and generating reports through a business intelligence solution using a drag-and-drop interface where beginner and advanced users can fully utilise various features of SQL reporting tools, thus, saving time and resources.
After realising that an average of 10% organisation’s IT resources go directly to database analysis services such as SQL reports, it became clear that another solution was needed, especially considering how much time and money such resources cost. For example, it can take anywhere from several hours to 3 days to receive reports back from internal or external specialists, which often halts productivity.
This bottleneck can be unblocked with state-of-the-art SQL reporting tools, that will enable you to:
Simplify advanced analytics if needed: It’s hard to imagine that building an SQL report could ever be an easy thing, but modern solutions have managed to make it so. By getting rid of complicated analysis tools and techniques, modern reporting software have managed to put advanced analytics directly into the hands of business users instead of over-paid IT specialists.
Connect various data sources: These mentioned solutions are easy to deploy, as you only need a couple of minutes to connect your various data sources through numerous data connectors and start working with them immediately. With datapine, you can create reports from all relevant SQL databases such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, MS SQL Server, Google Cloud SQL but also AWS aurora, Heroku, Maria DB, Microsoft Azure, Percona, and Amazon Redshift, among others. Centralising the data from various sources will save you a lot of time and energy, and enable you to deliver accurate information to anyone who needs it in your company. A SQL reporting tool smartly harmonises the advantages of a centrally managed reporting software, and the flexibility of a cloud-based and on-demand application. You should be able to access these solutions from anywhere at any time, from any device equipped of a web browser, and generate your reports in a matter of minutes.
Save time and resources: Essentially, database reporting tools have evolved to the point where people with no SQL knowledge can turn themselves into a seasoned data analyst and quickly create a report without having to learn any complicated software. Organisations from small to large companies can free themselves from the IT specialists and create any report using an easy-to-understand drag-and-drop interface.
Explore numerous options: From a real-time analysis, robust reporting options through a link or file sharing, exporting the report or utilising various roles you can assign to explore (admin, editor, and viewer), SQL reporting is not just reserved for seasoned data analysts. The values in the field for analysing can be simply dropped while powerful charts can be generated in seconds. You can customise with additional tooltips, sort and compare to the previous period or set up alerts so that your analysis never misses an important business anomaly and structure it in your dashboard reporting process. This will make your reports richer and more accurate.
If you are a more advanced SQL user though, you may as well enter code manually and command queries. SQL reporting tools also let you work collaboratively with your colleagues, offering various sharing and editing options that you can revoke whenever you want. That way, with the right people on the right reports, it is easier to tap into the organisation’s data potential and make the best out of it. You foster collaboration in a meaningful way within your company, while the insights you gain are multiple and valuable.

Quick integration: Database reporting tools don’t take days or weeks in order to integrate with an individual database, it only takes 5 minutes. You just need to connect your data and start generating invaluable new insights.
SQL report automation: Analysis results such as charts and tables are structured in custom business dashboards and can be automatically sent to selected receivers. You choose the interval, whether it’s daily, weekly or monthly, for example, and let the tool do the rest while you can concentrate on other relevant tasks.
Automatic SQL code creation: Automatic creation of optimised SQL code and saving IT resources during the query process is another distinctive feature of these tools. A company should be able to save time across departments, not just IT, and create a more effective working environment. The automatic code creation will enable you to do just that, without the need to have substantial IT skills. This creates a more user-friendly approach to data management which would, otherwise, stay in the hands of IT complexities that business users can now fully avoid.
