Engineering Ingegneria Informatica Contributes Business Intelligence Technology to ObjectWeb

Originally published November 3, 2005

Two European open source providers, Engineering Ingegneria Informatica and ObjectWeb, recently announced, the first open source suite for the development of business intelligence projects in an integrated environment.

The new unified business intelligence platform—SpagoBI –has the potential of covering the full range of analytical tools, such as the data and metadata organization, static reporting and dimensional analysis, hidden information discovering by means of data mining techniques, the building of a structured and dynamic control suite with dashboard components.

Business intelligence software enables executives to make better decisions by efficiently accessing and analyzing business data—for example data coming from production, marketing, finance, HR or sales departments.

With the addition of SpagoBI to the ObjectWeb projects, the consortium complements its middleware stack for the enterprise with a business intelligence layer. SpagoBI offers the following classes of business intelligence features: data mining, QBE (query by example), OLAP (online analytical processing on dimensional analysis), reporting and dashboards. These features are all accessible in an Intranet mode, using thin web clients. SpagoBI leverages existing ObjectWeb projects such as eXo Platform (Java enterprise portal) and JOnAS (application server certified compliant with J2EE1.4) and is in line with ObjectWeb's goal of fostering the development of an ecosystem for open source middleware.
