2-6103 Beyond Open Source: Using Actuate BIRT

Duration: 2 days

This course instructs students on those features that are unique to Actuate BIRT Report Designer Professional. This product has the same code base as open source BIRT so it provides the same core features and benefits as the open source version plus newly developed functionality such as using HTML5 in your reports.

Students learn to add interactive charts to reports using HTML5 and Flash, allowing developers to add flair to reports typically seen on web dashboards. The course covers the creation of data objects, adding data security, publishing reports to the iHub Server, using the Interactive Viewer, report and database change impact analysis as well as other topics.

This highly interactive, instructor-led class provides many opportunities for students to ask questions, explore new areas, and receive help from the instructor as they work through the exercises.

Each student receives a workbook, which contains the exercises students complete in class.
