iServer Express provides the following key services:
â¢ Easy installation: automated report delivery that can be up and running in less than 60 minutes
â¢ Security: secures reporting in a way that tailors to application user needs and fits with existing infrastructure
â¢ Scheduling and distribution: gives application users the reports they want, when and how they want them without needless burden on IT
â¢ Integration: gives developers complete control over the application user experience without sacrificing flexibility
iServer Express is built by an engineering team with 12 years of experience building enterprise-scale deployment services and leading-edge development tools, including BIRT. iServer Express includes a fully-documented Web Services API to replicate any function in any application, as well as a range of URL-based integration options. The product also has built-in security for granting permissions so that each user can only see the data and report components they are authorised to see, application developers can control user access via sheet, row or column-level permissions; and custom-render each report for a particular user. It includes a web-based scheduler, for use by anyone, with event- and time-based scheduling, job notification, parameter setting and a range of other options.
âFor the past year, weâve had a continual dialogue with BIRT users that contributed to an impressive two million plus downloads of BIRT. What weâre hearing is that a certain class of BIRT applications warrants off-the-shelf security and scheduling,â said Rich Guth, vice president and general manager, Java Group at Actuate. âI encourage developers to visit BIRT Exchange to review and download iServer Express for themselves, to evaluate whether the product can enhance their application.â
