About Content Server
Content Server is a reliable platform for report and document content management. In Content Server, reports and documents are "read-in" to a storage system and then indexed. These stored reports and documents can be easily retrieved using Content Server's powerful query system and subsequently transformed into data views and Excel spreadsheets. The filing, storage, and retrieval of reports and documents are made easy in Content Server.
At the heart of Monarch Server is Content Server's report warehouse subsystem for efficiently storing and managing large volumes of corporate reports. Reports produced in any host environment can be brought into Content Server. These reports are automatically identified, indexed, compressed, and stored in the warehouse system. Monarch Server uses an industry-standard SQL database to manage storage and provide fast, efficient access to report data.
Content Server allows end users to retrieve information from reports, search for data in several reports simultaneously, and manipulate data for further analysis. This online system makes report data available more quickly, economically, and effectively than is possible with traditional hardcopy reports.
Content Server Components
The MSAdmin is a part of the Content Server system, which consists of these major components:
SQL database. Content Server works with industry-standard SQL databases. It supports Microsoft SQL Server 2016/2017/2018. A database server can be chosen from a list of supported devices based on your report volume and existing network architecture. This database supplies the underlying mechanisms for managing the internal data structures.
Monarch Server Administrator (MSAdmin). It is used by the system administrator to define the parameters of the system. MSAdmin identifies where reports are to be found, how they are to be processed into electronic documents, and where the results (that is, documents) will be physically stored. It calls Monarch to set up models for indexing and extracting data from documents. MSAdmin provides capabilities for enforcing system security, establishing user rights and privileges, and handling maintenance issues.
Monarch Server Client (MSClient). It contains the functionality necessary for retrieving documents. It allows users to query the report warehouse in a number of ways to find the documents that they are looking for. Once found, these documents are launched into Monarch with the appropriate model file for viewing and analysis. MSClient is also used to process reports into documents. Using the parameters established in MSAdmin, new reports are recognized, indexed, broken into documents, and stored away, creating a warehouse of documents and indexes.
