Good afternoon (CST, anyway),
I’m researching a rapid development tool for an insurance company. The
tool would be used for small data stores with very, very few users.
This problem is not in the realm of enterprise application development.
I really like how quickly RoR apps can be created for basic CRUD
functionality. However, one of the big features required here is a
reporting solution that is quick and easy for the business. So a quick
CRUD app could be built in RoR, but then how do we implement quick and
painless reporting on the data? We would like to avoid mounds and
mounds of custom code.
Just wondering if anything out there “snaps in” to RoR or if I need to
be looking elsewhere. (Feel free to recommend where you think
“elsewhere” is, too.) I’d like to do something with RoR because I
think the framework could grow into more extensive use within the
company in the future.
