SEARCHING: Range Searches

September 24, 2012

Range searches allow you to match documents whose field(s) values are between the lower and upper value specified by the range search. Range searches can be inclusive or exclusive of the upper and lower bounds. Sorting is done alphabetically.

Using square brackets performs inclusive range searches:

This will find documents whose “Branch Name” field has values between “Bristol” and “Chester” inclusive.

Using curly brackets performs exclusive range searches:

This will find all documents whose “description” fields have values between “Bristol” and “Chester”, but not including “Bristol” and “Chester”.


Can you predict your business future….

May 30, 2012

Turning data into actionable information is challenging. Your company has different departments with different needs therefore requiring different reports, from different, and often multiple, data sources.  Decisions need to be made quickly; therefore, lengthy waits are unacceptable.

Your business information should be transparent and predictable. It is essential for organisations to understand the steps involved in reaching predictability.

Steps to predictability

So what step are you on? What do you need to move up to the next step?

Having the right tools to understand your business can save resources, time and money. You can empower users with self-service access to the latest data they need. These tools can be used to create trends and perform ‘what if’ analysis allowing your company to be proactive rather than reactive.
