BriteData overview

BriteData allows you to customize an existing report or build reports through the BriteCore interface. These reports rely on our prepared data sets as their only source of data. BriteData has built-in smart defaults to simplify the report-building process. However, BriteData operates with certain assumptions and constraints and is subject to limitations. Think of BriteData Builder as a report extraction tool rather than a report creation or business intelligence tool. It can support limited amounts of data and can’t perform complex mathematical calculations.
