In most companies, there are many different databases that can be used for reporting. We refer to these databases as the Reporting databases.

To report off of these databases, you need to ensure that you have the connection information and a user account to that database that has at least reading rights to the data you want to use. This information is usually obtained from your Database Administrator.

In the Linux pattern described here, we use a Sybase ASE 15.7 Reporting database. This resides on a different server than our CMS and Auditing databases, and must be configured and tested separately.

We generally recommend that you not host the CMS and Auditing databases on the same database server as your Reporting databases. This avoids competition for resources since the CMS and Auditing databases are critical to the health of your system.
