AXIS EnterpriseLink for Valuation Users

One place to find all components of your AXIS work

AXIS EnterpriseLink dashboard is a starting point for your work with datasets, backups, input and output files, import/export databases, and reports.

Single point access to all great tools AXIS EnterpriseLink offers

Application automatically customizes the layout presented in the dashboard to provide you with direct access to all AXIS versions and a variety of tools you need based on your role in the system.

Customizable set of functional areas

You can change the layout of your dashboard components by hiding sections you currently do not intend to use.

No time spent on installation,or dealing with license keys

You don't have to worry about AXIS keys and multiple installations - you have immediate access to all required AXIS versions, which are centrally installed in the dedicated server directory.

Easier management of datasetsfrom different versions

AXIS EnterpriseLink automatically opens a dataset in the correct version of AXIS. Alternatively, you can choose to open the dataset in a newer version from the library and convert it when needed.

Control access to specific AXIS versions

While many different versions of AXIS may be deployed in EnterpriseLink, you can select just a specific list of AXIS versions requiredfor the members of your user group to work with. This helps simplify the work flow and reduce potential for errors.

Direct access to AXIS version release notes and sample datasets

You can find sample datasets on a selected AXIS version screen and copy them to your work area folder. A direct link brings you to a list of new features and changes introduced in the selected version.

Configurable work areas for your datasets, files, and calculation results

Find all your datasets and files easily by navigating work areas allocated for the users in your group. No more guessing where to place your data and the backups. You can create a hierarchy of folders and subfolders to logically structure the areas of your work.

Easily share your data with your team

Datasets, input and output files, queries and reports, as well as dataset backup archives are easily shared by all members of the user group via commonwork areas shown in the application dashboard.

Protect access to selected work areas

Control access to work areas using custom roles and permissions. This helps achieve segregation of duties anda security level required for compliance by auditors.

Log messages and notes documenting all AXIS work

AXIS EnterpriseLink comes with a comprehensive logging mechanism. Messages generated by the system as a result of user actions performed in thework areas are captured and presented for your review in the logs. You can create and post notes to document your work in each folder. Dashboard offers you a filtered view for the notes and log messages with various details about various events in the system.

Integration with Microsoft Office tools

Automatically open any file stored in your work area folders in associated applications such as Microsoft Excel or Access right fromthe AXIS EnterpriseLink dashboard.

Control over other users access to data stored in yourwork area

Customize permissions to allow only the actions that are required for the desired work flow to be performed by members of different user groups on datasets and files in yourwork areas and backup archives.

No lost or overwritten backups anymore

You can back up a dataset multiple times with no risk of overwriting already existing backups.

Backup history with documentation

Document each backup with a notepad and the system will maintain a backup history for each dataset in each folder where you worked. Pick and restore any version of your dataset from its history.

Centralized repository for AXIS dataset revisions

Check your datasets and Jobs in to the EnterpriseLink version control repository and maintain the revision history for each dataset and Job. Check the datasets out for editing or get a copy of any version of the dataset down to your work area folder for testing or production runs. Check your Job out to proceed with the script development or get a copy of any version of the Job for a test run.

History view and versions comparator

Review the history of "check-ins" for a dataset and/or Job under version control and compare any two selected versions to see what changes were made between them. Powerful dataset comparator tool performs quick and accurate dataset comparisons and provides you with a clear interface for easy analysis of differences found between all types of dataset objects. You can also compare Jobs to see the changes in the script and property values, and Global Parameters associated per Job.

Report on changes

Dataset version control database stores dates and times when datasets were added ortheir versions were checked in, along with the name of the user and notepads for each dataset version.The ability to track and report on changes helps comply with auditors' requirements.

Integration with multiple AXIS GridLink farms

All versions of AXIS you are using are automatically configured with optimal parameters for access to one or multiple queues in your AXIS GridLink environment so you can immediately start submitting jobs when you need to run long batches on the powerful processing farm.

Monitor jobs right from the EnterpriseLink dashboard

Monitor active jobs running on EnterpriseLink servers or in any of your GridLink job queues right from the dashboard and viewthe completed jobs list and their batch logs.

Scripted jobs to perform sequences of calculations or processes

AXIS users have already benefited from the ability to write their own AXIS Script (similar to Visual Basic for Applications - VBA) in a System Formula. EnterpriseLink provides a central place to create and execute scripts right fromthe user dashboard. These jobs are especially suited for production processes but can also be written by the user to perform various service tasks such as backing up datasets or converting datasets to newer versions of AXIS. We also introduced a new type of EnterpriseLink Job "EnterpriseLink Script". Unlike an "AXIS Script" type job that runs in AXIS, the EnterpriseLink Script job runs on EnterpriseLink allowing for native access to model dataset management functionality and Version Control capabilities, while providing functions to run AXIS jobs locally on the EnterpriseLink server or submit jobs to queues in AXIS GridLink on-premise or cloud based farms.

Automated runs without manual intervention

Use of Global Parameters provides the ability to run jobs without having to open datasets or job scripts, as well to perform fully automated runs via the built-in job scheduler. You can control which users can edit the job script, its parameters or job schedule.

Sample Jobs Library

Review Sample Jobs scripts to analyze the most often used functions/commands for maintenance and production runs. Copy the sample script into a new job and edit it to use with your datasets and/or enhance it with the functions specific for your needs.

Centralized repository for scriptedproduction and maintenance jobs for automating AXIS runs

EnterpriseLink jobs module provides you with a simple interface to the scripted jobs repository. It enables you to edit, schedule and monitor automated runs.

Job Scheduling mechanism

EnterpriseLink introduces an easy-to-use interface for scheduling automated runs. You can set a date and time for job execution, establish the frequency to run with and select the AXIS version and the computer on which the job will run.

Job monitoring and history

You can monitor the status and progress of running jobs, including jobs running on GridLink and review the history of completed jobs and their batch logs right on the AXIS EnterpriseLink dashboard.

Check your jobs into an EnterpriseLink Version Control Project

Maintain the revisions history for each job, check out the Job for editing, and get a copy of any version to a selected Job Set for a testing or production run.

Compare Job versions selected from the Job History in Project

Identify differences between the scripts, Parameters and Job Properties.

Visual query builder for complex data mining

AXIS EnterpriseLink Query Tool is a powerful component for extracting information from various data sources. Graphical interface lets you build queries in a visual manner. Various database objects can be dragged and dropped into a query editor to develop advanced queries. Advanced query features are available via direct SQL editing.

Comprehensive Data Viewer

Query results can be further manipulated according to your requirements. Multiple-column sorting or grouping, column navigation, horizontal and vertical split views, etc. give you a rich set of tools to customizedata views.

Centralized reports library

Create multiple report libraries to organize your queries and reports by projects. These libraries allow you to share queries you created with other users. You can control which user group can access your report library for editing or executing queries.
