BIRT onDemand is available now and can be accessed online. Once signed up, users have immediate access to the tools they need to view, refine and reuse their content in a secure and easy-to-navigate environment, whether it’s on the Web or on their own handheld device.

As a cloud-based software as a service, BIRT onDemand is for organizations who need Actuate to manage their BIRT iHub deployment. The service offers all the features of an on-premise installation of BIRT iHub, including its visualization suite, data integration and caching, security and user management functions.

Mobility through BIRT onDemand

A mobile client is already fully integrated with the BIRT onDemand experience. When a BIRT design or document is uploaded to an onDemand account, it can quickly be added to a mobile client via the document’s context menu. If a business already has an iHub, it’s easy to deploy BIRT content to mobile devices via pre-built viewers or directly to device browsers.

BIRT onDemand offers immediate ROI, is an easy-to-implement deployment option, and provides businesses and users with a flexible environment in which to build, deploy, access, view and manipulate BIRT-based content.

Features and benefits of BIRT onDemand can be realized in moments, as pre-existing BIRT reports and designs can be uploaded and accessed via the user friendly UI. Simply sign up for an onDemand account and go.
