With Actuate's professional reporting software, developers get extended functions for commercial use that go beyond the open source Eclipse BIRT Designer. Including scalable deployment options for web and mobile applications, Actuate's reporting software enables developers to embed interactive reports in commercial applications for data management, end user dashboards, and advanced analytics.
Actuate’s business reporting software tools are fully compatible with content developed with the Eclipse open source designer. For enterprise-level reporting, our professional report designer shares all the core functions of the open source sample designer and adds the following upgraded features for commercial developers:
Caching for creating interactive and analytic content
Hundreds of HTML5-powered charts
Gadgets and maps
Commercial Data Drivers
Extensive HTML5 Charting Library adds dynamic and interactive graphing and charting capabilities
Includes over 200 geographic maps that can be color-coded and linked to underlying data
At-a-glance dashboard widgets: thermometers, gauges, spark lines, and bullet charts
Dashboard KPIs and widgets
Easy one-click publishing to a server or cloud instantly delivers dashboards, ad hoc query templates, or mobile and interactive reports.
Page-level security offers significant performance, security, and maintenance advantages by ensuring that underlying core data for each report is never lost or compromised. Because developers can generate a single-server side document with security rules for each recipient, they can effectively manage the scalability of reports (i.e., developers can determine which tools are available for each user).
Simplified deployment and sharing of report design collections and templates with pre-built applications.
The Data Modeler is a visual development perspective used to create metadata objects and data objects that set the appropriate data viewing parameters or controls for each business user interacting with content. The metadata objects created can pull in and integrate raw data—even big data—in real-time from multiple sources. The Data Modeler also defines how data sets are linked, cached, navigated, and aggregated prior to creating visualizations.
