Learn how to create nimble BI applications from any variety of disparate data sources, including any data warehouse you may be using, in real time with minimal development effort. The toughest problem in IT today is the exploding number of new data sources and making sense of huge volumes of data being collected. We will show you how our customers like AT&T and Bank of America use the BIRT iHub to create reports and dashboards using multiple data sources through a simple drag and drop interface.
During this meetup you will learn:
• How to visualize data from query to content in less than 15 minutes
• How to create a virtualized data infrastructure using every data source imaginable, from CSV files to MongoDB
• How to use Actuate BIRT to quickly develop and deploy interactive web applications
