Many applications collect and process data from users, real-time data feeds, SQL databases and more. The challenge is how to present this valuable data to users as information they can use. And how to quickly respond to requests from those users for different ways to visualize the data. BIRT, the industry leading open source reporting and Business Intelligence project within the Eclipse Foundation, is a new generation of reporting and data visualization technology that does just that – enabling you to focus on building the core capabilities of your application and utilizing ready-to-go BIRT technology to add rich information that meet your users’ needs.
This session introduces BIRT and looks at how you can leverage BIRT to create data-driven reports, web pages, and add compelling information visualizations to your application. The session provides some background on the project and quickly dives into the architecture, key capabilities and how to use BIRT. Using live demonstrations, the session takes you through using the BIRT Designer to create reports, data layouts and visualizations, and then looks at how you can integrate these visualizations into your application.
