Delivering Reporting and Data Analysis With MySQL and Jaspersoft

Location: Ballroom G Level: Novice

The MySQL universe has a variety of options for supporting powerful business intelligence – reporting, data analysis and visualization – for both embedding in applications and providing stand alone services for organizations. MySQL’s community and customer base commonly choose Jaspersoft’s open source business intelligence products for these applications. This presentation will review various business intelligence approaches with MySQL and the implications for database development and management.

Types and examples of business intelligence:

  • Embedding business intelligence in your applications
  • Self service business intelligence for your audience
    • Why people love Excel – deal with it!
    • Simple versus powerful, casual use versus data analysts
  • To data warehouse or not to data warehouse
    • “Just” reporting
    • In-memory business intelligence
    • Data warehouse optimized options from the MySQL universe
