screencast demonstrates a typical Panorama based
shopping cart application from a blank order form
to analysis of sales data. The first section of the
screencast shows the shopping cart from the point
of view of a user selecting items and filling in
the order form (using either the Panorama client or
a web browser).
The second portion of the screencast shows how the
shopping cart is managed from the companies
perspective. You'll see how incoming orders are
received and processed, including printing
invoices, automatically e-mailing responses and
auto-dialing the customer's phone number if there
is a problem or question. We'll demonstrate how the
catalog and price list can be changed, including
changing multiple prices at once based on a
formula, and how new items can be added to the
catalog (including images).
At the end of the month, quarter or year any
business needs to know where you've been and where
you're going. The final section demonstrates some
of the powerful analysis tools available, including
outlines, denormalization, charts, and crosstabs.
At the end of the day, what you really need from a
database is not raw information, but knowledge.
Panorama gives you the powerful, interactive tools
you need to make that transformation happen.
