Your boss wanted a quick report from your database but you failed to impress with a text file filled with the output of a ‘SELECT … FROM …’? Then you need to attend one of the following talks. From good looking ad hoc reports or detailed multi-segment reports, there are many BI tools that will make your data look sharper in a printer report, web page, or in a dashboard.
I will speaking three times in April on using Open Source BI Tools (JasperForge, BIRT, Pentaho, etc.) with MySQL. This is a short, faced paced presentation on the subject followed by lots of demos.
