Course description
Report Writer is an important technology for data extraction, presentation and manipulation of the Avaloq Banking System. It is used in almost any parameterisation/customisation area and influences the users experience to a big extent.
 
With the knowledge of the initial training (Fundamentals of Avaloq Customisation (ACP) parameterisers are able to develop basic reports. However advanced topics and latest developments in this area are an important puzzle piece for parameterisation specialists to deliver good results.
 
In practice, one of the main reasons for end-of-day processing not finishing on time are poorly performing reports. Often due to expensively built work-arounds due to the lack of knowledge regarding Report Writer features and disregarding usability criteria that lead to low user satisfaction. These are only some examples that show how important it is, that the parameterisation specialist masters this technology and is conscious about performance and usability topics.
 
At the end of the course, the parameteriser will have a better understanding of the report writer engine, its possibilities, shortcomings and strengths in order to produce more robust and flexibleand high-performance customisation of the Avaloq software.
