Avoid the shadow systems that can occur when an institution does not have a simple enterprise option available to users. Use the table builder to create client-specific tables in the FAST database and build data entry pages with these tables.
Build tables manually, or create them using external sources like Microsoft Excel. You can then use these tables to create data entry pages that users can update easily.
Reporting Page Builder
Build your own reports and dashboards against any FAST data source or, with a FAST Data Connector license, use the builder against other Oracle-based, non-FAST data sources, such as another Data Warehouse or a real-time production database like a parking system or library system.
Using the builder wizard, create your own reporting pages and have those reports integrate into the application just like a FAST pre-built page, including all the features you would expect like row and column level security, menu security, and exports to Microsoft Excel and PDF. You can also create hyperlinks from each report to other reports in the system.
