All reports available within the Clarity Human Services Report Library have been designed and implemented using the Pentaho© Business Intelligence Suite.
If you are looking for resources based on the Data Analysis tool, our easy to use non-developer business user based reporting platform, please visit the Data Analysis page for more information.
Experienced developers may use Pentaho© to develop and format custom reports to produce data in specific and reproducible formats. These reports can include new data elements specific to the implementation to ensure flexibility and customization to match local priorities.
Developers must download and install Pentaho© Report Designer 6 to create their own custom reports. Once installed on your desktop, the real-time replicated SQL Database is accessed through a secure OpenVPN connection in order to work directly with your data. Pentaho© Report Designer requires advanced expertise in SQL Query development and advanced report design application experience.
Please visit the Request Services page to learn about the Database Access/VPN fee, which is required to access this development environment.
Please keep in mind that this is advanced software, which will require specific Pentaho© training, which is outside of training services provided by our staff. However, Pentaho© offers comprehensive training on the core application, as well as several books, tutorials, and user guides.
If you elect to have a custom Pentaho© Report developed by your organization included in your local Report Library for your users to access, this report must first go through an approval/review process by our team to ensure security and operational acceptance. Our Standard Report Development hourly rates apply. Please visit the Request Services page to initiate a report acceptance request.
For more information on the Pentaho© Report Designer application, please visit the official Pentaho© website.
