Hillsborough County Public Schools needed to create an interactive Strategic Plan Scorecard that summarized metrics at a high level, but also provided some detailed information to the users similar to a drill-through report. To meet this need, an Active Report was created that impressed business users as well as solved the delivery and security concerns from an I.S. perspective. Although Active Reports are not exactly new to IBM Cognos, there have been significant improvements in regards to performance and file compression. This session explains how the Active Report was created at an introductory level, including a demonstration of the product.
