Upcoming Actuate and IBM Maximo Webinar

with 2 comments

A reader reminded me of an upcoming Actuate and Maximo Webinar that I thought I would elevate from the comments to a full on post.  A full disclosure-esque reminder, I use Actuate and am employed by IBM.

When: Monday, November 24th, 11:00 EST

Free Registration: http://snipurl.com/actuatemaximowebinar

Blurb I ganked from the registration site:

This webcast will provide attendees with valuable insights into their future reporting options with Maximo, including:

  • How to continue leveraging existing investments in Actuate Reports
  • How to integrate new BIRT Reports with existing Actuate reporting infrastructure
  • How to extend the value of Actuate and BIRT to other applications beyond Maximo

Lately I’ve been amused by Google Trends–graphs showing the trending of popular searches.  I think maybe this one goes a long way to making an argument for getting in touch with your inner BIRT.

Learning Actuate Reporting for Maximo

with 9 comments

Continuing from my recent announcement that I was coming up to speed on eSpreadsheets, I’ve also been poking around free BIRT and now, today, I am headed out to LA to get some formal training on how to write Actuate reports for Maximo.

I really really really hope that the focus is on Maximo and not Actuate.  I’ve heard that most folks that know Maximo don’t really know Actuate.  I guess that generally the OTB reports get tweaked but not significantly modified.  Maybe very few new reports get created.  For all I know this is because no new ones are needed.  I look forward to ending the guesswork this week.
