2-6101 Working with Magellan Analytics Designer
Duration: 4 days
This BIRT training course develops the skills needed to build reports using the BIRT Report Designer, an open-source reporting tool built on Eclipse. The course is essential for report developers who want to be immediately productive with the BIRT Report Designer, and want an exhaustive overview of the product's powerful features. Through presentations, demonstrations, and exercises, students are introduced to the design tools and basic reporting concepts, then progressively explore more advanced features. Students create reports that range from simple listing reports to complex reports using grouping, report parameters, multiple master pages, hyperlinks, and data from a variety of data source types.
This is a highly interactive, instructor led class providing many opportunities for students to ask questions, explore new areas, and receive help from the instructor as they work through the exercises.
By the end of this four-day training, students will have mastered the skills to create a wide variety of reports, simple and sophisticated, using the graphical tools of BIRT Report Designer. Each student receives a workbook, which contains all the exercises students will complete in class.
