About design considerations
Design information objects for the business user, not for other data experts. Take into account the experience levels of the users. The point of creating information objects is to shield the user from the complexities of data structures and relationships. Before you begin creating information objects, understand the types of reports users want to create, the data they need, and the different ways users can manipulate data in BIRT Studio. The rest of this section provides general guidelines for designing usable information objects.
