What is reporting software?
Actuate's reporting software enables developers to design customized
data visualizations for client dashboards.
allows people to create reports (i.e., operational reports, management reports, financial summary reports, customer reports, ad hoc reports, etc.) from a variety of data sources that can be easily read and understood. Otherwise, raw data is rather indecipherable for human eyes. Business reporting software helps employees make better sense of their data sets by turning them into visual analytics reports that highlight key pieces of information. Using reporting software is not just about retrieving data from different sources; it’s also about presenting that data in intelligible and organized business reports for human analysis.
Business (BI) Reporting Tools for Applications
Business (BI) reporting tools are generally used to help support decision-making processes and improve the success of a company. As a means to measure the performance of an organization, modern business reporting needs to incorporate a more collaborative user experience for developers, report writers, and end users all interacting with the reports at different stages. Business reporting software helps organizations monitor their data by revealing data correlations and patterns to detect trends and root causes of issues or problems. However, producing formal business reports can be a complex and time-consuming process with IT, which is not an effective everyday business solution. Actuate's game-changing BIRT technology offers business reporting software solutions that invite all users—from developers designing the applications to the business users running end user reports to the customers receiving them—to actively engage with their data through reports and visualizations to get more personalized business intelligence out of their data sources.

Embedded Reporting Software Delivers Dynamic Reports for Personalized User Experiences

as well as an ad hoc reporting application

With a Web-based design and delivery metaphor, BIRT uses a grid-table-cell-based layout and cascading style sheets that make it intuitive and simple to use. The drag-and-drop user interface and report templates eliminate the need for developers to maintain the software code by hand and is thus much easier to use straight from the get-go.
