Client specification was for a graphical debugger which allowed step-by-step execution of
reporting scripts using the Hyperion(Brio) language SQR. Initial engagement at the client site
in Germany resulted in a project plan for a 3 year project.
Client was advised that the production of the solution would be long-term and a staggered
delivery was arranged with increasing functionality delivered over 3 stages during the 3
year term of the contract. The client was able to generate revenue from each stage of
delivery and allow the project to self fund itself from year 2 onwards.
At the end of year 1 the client received a debugger that was written in Delphi 5 as a COM
object with full support for the most common aspects of the reporting language. The client
was able to integrate this initial solution into their development environment for SQR and
generate additional sales based on the added functionality.
Over the next 2 years the complete solution was delivered and implemented complete support
for a wide variety of databases including SQL Server, Oracle, DB 2, SyBase and ODBC data sources.
Complete delivery of the final solution resulted in the client seeing a large increase in orders
and a return on investment from the start of the project.
Product support was provided during the term of the contract with additional services being
given to ensure that the client was able to deliver the highest level of service to their
SQR Debugger operating within the SQR-Runner IDE
