FAST Enterprise Development Toolkit

The Millennium FAST (Fast Administrative Support Tools) Suite is a pre-built administrative software solution developed for the Higher Education market. FAST is a secure, web-based and easy to implement solution that integrates with major ERP systems such as Ellucian (SunGard) Banner and (Datatel) Colleague, Oracle PeopleSoft and other ERP Systems.

FAST Enterprise Development Toolkit consists of the following modules and is included with all Reporting and Application modules.

FAST Table Builder
FAST Query Builder
FAST Reporting Page Builder
FAST Data Entry Page Builder
FAST Warehouse Builder

 
FAST Table Builder

Shadow systems tend to get created at all institutions when there is not a simple to use enterprise option available to users. The FAST Table Builder allows Administrators and or IT users to create client specific tables in the FAST database and build data entry pages with these tables. Use this functionality to get rid of shadow systems.

The tables can be built manually, or can be created from external sources such as Microsoft Excel. You can then use these tables to create data entry pages to allow users to update the data in them.
 
FAST Query Builder

The Graphical Query Builder allows power users to create simple to complex queries using our simple point and click query builder. This query is saved and can be consumed by Report Builder.
 
FAST Reporting Page Builder

FAST report builder can be used to build your own reports and dashboards. You can build these against any FAST data source, or if you have the FAST data connector license, you can use FAST report builder against other Oracle based, non FAST data sources.

Typical examples of this could be another Data Warehouse that contains your ERP data or a real time production database such as a parking system, library system etc. This will allow you to build entire reporting applications outside of the pre-built FAST applications.

The Report Page Builder Wizard provides the ability to create your own reporting pages, and have those reports integrated into the application similar to all of the FAST pre-built pages. The pages built contain all of the built in features including row and column level security, menu security, exports to Microsoft Excel and PDF. You can also create hyperlinks from each report to other reports in the system.
 
FAST Data Entry Page Builder

The data entry page builder allows you to use the tables you build in the FAST Table Builder to create robust data entry pages directly in FAST. Once you have the pages built, the pages integrate directly into each FAST application and all the same features such as xl import and export, menu security etc are applied.
 
FAST Warehouse Builder

If you have data in external applications you want to warehouse for reporting, or if you want to extend the FAST Datawarehouse, you can use the FAST Warehouse Builder to accomplish this.
