Academy Courses

Lesson 1. Introduction to Knowage

This course depicts the global vision of Knowage Suite, the policy it carries out, its usage and its main features.

Lesson 2. Knowage Report Designer

BIRT technology platform is one of the most broadly employed data visualization and reporting technologies. Knowage open source project embedded BIRT technology platform into its products. Precisely, Knowage Report Designer contains a visual report designer for creating BIRT Designs while Knowage Server contains the runtime engine for generating those designs that can be deployed to any Java environment.

This course aims at offering assistance to create a simple Report with Birt. We focused the attention on crucial steps from installation to the development of the document and finally show how the report can be transferred on server.

Lesson 3. Basics on the concept of Analytical Driver and LOV

Knowage Server allows the user to set parameters to any analytical document by means of analytical drivers and LOVs. An analytical driver (AD) is an autonomous entity that models a business concept in order to use it as a discriminating criterion in the global data context, according to the different end user roles. LOV stands for List of Values. They represent the valid values for an analytical driver.

In this course we see how parameters can be set on analytical documents stored on Knowage Server. The delineation of them is realised by means of LOV and AD. We illustrate the procedure step by step, in particular we show how these two tools comunicate with each other.
