Ahh, reporting... one of the great advents to the world of business in the 20th century, bringing packaged insights to any user across companies worldwide. For decades, it reigned as the undisputed backbone of BI and data delivery. Are those days over?

If you keep up with tech trends alone you'd expect that Data Science and Machine Learning have displaced the idea of building reports all together. Yet, with all eyes fixed on emerging forms of BI, reporting continues to hold the lion's share of the market - in a recent survey by InformationWeek 88% of organizations are using reports while only 34% use data science.

Why? Because while data science, machine learning and even data discovery enable new paths, the need to inform users from a single source of truth is, and will always be, a critical component to consistently and accurately distributing information.

In this webcast, you will learn:

  • How reporting is evolving as a result of modern APIs, datasources, delivery methods and architectures and how to use them to your advantage
  • The current landscape of reporting tools, directly from Teodor Danciu, Architect of the popular JasperReports library
  • The bright future for reporting and important considerations for your environment
