EQuIS Enterprise Introduction

EQuIS Enterprise is part of the EQuIS environmental data management workflow that provides multi-functionality through a web interface. Enterprise is an automated workflow service that reliably processes Electronic Data Deliverables (EDDs) and generates reports based on the data received and business rules regarding that data. Within Enterprise, clients can create custom dashboards with project-specific widgets to monitor, analyze, and drive decisions based on data. Widgets for charts, graphs, maps, and tables are among the wide variety of options. The configurable dashboards and widgets allow for project insights to enhance and support decision making.


Key Concepts


Dashboards – Dashboards are pages within an EQuIS Enterprise site that serve as containers for one or more widgets. Dashboards can be user-defined to collate information and provide overviews (e.g., reports, charts, maps, etc.) about projects (i.e., facilities). Dashboards may contain data from one or more facilities.


Widgets – Widgets are the individual elements added to dashboards that perform specific functions, such as the display of data or other system information. Multiple widgets of the same type may be added to a single dashboard. Most widgets must be configured to show specific information once added to a dashboard. Enterprise supports numerous types of widgets.


EQuIS Enterprise EDP – Performs all the same checks as either EQuIS Data Processor (EDP) Standalone or Professional EDP, but the entire process may be automated. The purpose of Enterprise EDP is for the automated workflow to receive (via ftp, email, or web) and process EDDs. Acceptance and/or rejection notifications are automatically sent.


EIAs – EQuIS Information Agents (EIAs) can automatically email alerts and send reports. EIAs are triggered by one of the following:

Each time new data is submitted;

By calendar frequency (e.g., daily, weekly, monthly) or scheduled event; and

Action level exceedances.


EIAs for grid reports can also be used as a data source for analysis and visualization tools (e.g., Enterprise widget, Microsoft Power BI).


Permissions – Enterprise includes a flexible and powerful permissions infrastructure to assign and manage user privileges for accessing tools and data within the application. There are four types of permissions that control how a particular user may interact with particular object types (e.g., dashboards, facilities, and reports) and individual objects (e.g., an administration dashboard, a specific facility, specific reports): Owner, Editor, Viewer, and Creator.


User Administration – Enterprise includes a powerful and flexible permission system that lets administrators configure system security according to specific needs. User roles can be created and are configurable to allow different levels of access to the application and the data maintained in the EQuIS database. Administrators can add or remove users, create and assign roles for groups of users, and assign permissions to users and roles.
