Can BIRT be used to generate reports from a database outside TRIRIGA? We built a TRIRIGA data mart using Cognos, and we are thinking of consolidating all reports with BIRT. Is that feasible?
You technically should be able to. You can create an additional data source to connect to the Cognos database using standard database connection protocols. I’m not too familiar with Cognos, but if there are no special requirements or restrictions to using the Cognos database outside of Cognos, then you can consolidate the data using both TRIRIGA and Cognos databases in a BIRT report.
