Unlike many other reporting tools, Analysis Engine’s data export capabilities are built for collaboration between multiple users and teams within an organization. Users of Analysis Engine can share data and reporting definitions and produce reporting templates that can be used by others. Because data export definitions in Analysis Engine live in the cloud, multiple users who have the appropriate access to given assets can make changes to the same assets, rather than having multiple versions of old files buried on someone’s individual machine.
Analysis Engine also has the ability to invite users and teams from other organizations in Analysis Engine into your own to manage particular assets, allowing easy agency access to reporting resources for collaborative purposes.
Meanwhile, detailed access logs keep access of individual user contributions, so administrators can get a solid look at how imports and exports are being used and changed over time.
The result is that large teams of internal and external stakeholders can all participate in the production and delivery of data assets, and everyone is kept on the same page.
