A Report by Any Other Name

A session at Open Apereo 2013 Conference (Jasig & Sakai)

Thursday 6th June, 2013

9:45am to 10:30am (PST)

Student Success Plan (SSP) is exploring alternatives to its current reporting subsystem (Hibernate+Jasper). Along the way, developers have found themselves asking "What is a 'report' anyway"? What makes a "report" different from any other UI-rendered application feature? This presentation will discuss distinctions and tradeoffs between several different approaches to thinking about and implementing report-ish features, including operational dashboards, evented and timeseries-based metrics, and traditional, tabular "slice-and-dice" business intelligence (BI) reporting, all based on the SSP development teams efforts to make its reports more useful and usable for both developers and end users.
