This page is for discussion and tracking of the Aperi Education modules we want to create. The intent is to provide material to assist consumers with various tasks. These are intended to be short modules (under 30 minutes). Here is a list for discussion / modification / expansion:

Key education modules:

  • Installation
  • Initial CIMOM configuration
  • Discovery/probe
  • How to use BIRT with Aperi
  • How to configure the data source for the Aperi repository, how to switch to the various perspectives, etc.
  • Programmer's manual for the data model to assist report designers in figuring out what queries to write for their reports.
