Analytics Designer

This guide contains everything you need to know to use the OpenText Actuate Analytics Designer. Analytics Designer shares all the features of the Eclipse BIRT designer, and adds hundreds of HTML5-powered charts, gadgets and maps; commercial data drivers; a metadata layer, impact analysis; and cube design and caching features for creating interactive and analytic content. Since Analytics Designer is built off of the open source BIRT designer, much of this guide is applicable to both designers. For more information on Analytics Designer, visit its product page. If you're looking for a strictly Eclipse BIRT Designer quick start guide, see the BIRT Designer Design Guide.
