About analyzing your data
BIRT Analytics provides many ways to analyze data. The analyses make it possible to get new perspectives on your organization’s information by crossing various fields, searching for characteristics that are or are not shared by groups, identifying suitable targets for each purpose, showing the evolution over time of different variables, and grouping values in different clusters.
BIRT Analytics supports the following types of data analysis: crosstabs, Venn diagrams, bubbles, evolutions, profiles, maps, and Pareto. You can save the definition of the analyses (the means of generating them) for reuse. When you run a saved analysis, any changes in the data appear in the current result of your analysis.
