EQuIS Enterprise

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 customizable dashboards and widgets allow for project insights to enhance and support decision making.


Key Terminology


Dashboards – Individual pages within an EQuIS Enterprise site that serve as containers for one or more widgets within. 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 – The individual elements that are added to dashboards. Widgets perform specific functions, such as the display of data or other system information. An individual widget is specific to a single facility or facility group. 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 can automatically email alerts and 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.


Permissions – EQuIS 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.
