With Micro Focus File Reporter, users can generate aggregate reporting across both Micro Focus (formerly Novell) and Microsoft network infrastructures from a single installation and a single console. Having the File Reporter Engine on Windows was the only way to have the Microsoft interfaces necessary to accomplish this vital goal.
Additionally, Micro Focus File Reporter includes a consumable reporting subsystem that is available only on Windows. By using this subsystem, we were able to deliver this product to market in a much shorter amount of time. The consumable reporting subsystem also allows us to have a product that is highly extensible and well-tested immediately. As this subsystem is enhanced, Micro Focus File Reporter customers will reap the benefits.
