What is Ad-Hoc reporting

Ad-Hoc, which has its origins in Latin, means “For this” in English. It refers to a task done for a specific reason. Ad-Hoc reporting, then, means creating reports for specific occasions. Through Ad-Hoc reporting, you can analyze a specific business question that you had not previously thought of and that your existing report is not capable of answering. When it comes to business intelligence, Ad-Hoc reporting adds to regular reporting by enabling users to quickly build new reports from scratch or edit the reports made previously. All of this can be done without the involvement of the IT department.

Business Intelligence analysts provide end users with premade reports, which usually satisfy their business needs. However, some of these regular reports are static, and all the user can do is select them and run them. Ad-Hoc reports, however, give users the ability to customize variables which affect the output of the result. Ad-Hoc reports are indispensable and customizable, which helps executives and managers develop quick and targeted insights.
