BIRT Information Objects Metadata

BIRT Information Objects metadata allow developers to virtually federate and simplify corporate data structures hierarchically. This is useful when data sources are accessed on a regular basis by many users, departments or ad-hoc query users in order to centralize management, ease access and secure information.




BIRT Data Objects


BIRT Data Objects are in-memory datasets constructed from disparate enterprise data sources, including directly accessed assets and/or metadata. These multidimensional datasets are generated and stored by iHub and can be used for a variety of self-service functions including cross-tab powered analysis, dimensional drill-through in dashboards or as cached aggregate data for predictive analytics.

Metrics Management Engine


Metrics Management Engine powers the KPI data within many OpenText™ Actuate Metrics Management gadgets, including the briefing book and KPI hierarchy viewer.
