Replace JasperAnalysis UI with OpenI Plug-In

I am happy to announce some fun and exciting changes at OpenI, and the alpha release of our team's work over last couple of months.

First - OpenI as a “BI platform” on its own will discontinue. Instead, we will use Pentaho and Jasper as our base platforms as needed. The approach is to release “OpenI plug-ins” for Jasper and Pentaho — so that they behave/appear in a manner very similar to OpenI.

Our first step in this direction is our "Plug-In" for Jasper that replaces its JasperAnalysis interface (which is basically JPivot as-is) with OpenI's UI. We believe this is a greatly improved UI for JasperServer users who need better interface for OLAP reporting and exploratory analysis . ... read more

OpenI 2.0 RC1 released!

Dear OpenI Community:

We are happy to announce the release candidate RC1 of OpenI 2.0 available for download.

There is also a demo available at http://demo.openi.org/openi (login is openi2/openi2)

We look forward to hearing your feedback on improving this release as we work on further testing of this version to get to general release.

We will put a separate post to provide more information on that, but we feel that GPL is a much better option for us at the moment as it enables us to include other GPL-based components in our distribution.... read more

The latest in opensource BI is complete: OpenI-1.1.1

We're proud to announce the latest release of OpenI-1.1.1. new features include:
* Drillthrough_Stream - Drillthrough results are no longer stored in memory! This enables much much larger drillthrough results sizes. Of course, you are still limited by sql performance, but that is another story.
* Improved_Error_Handling - New and improved error pages that print out more reliably without wreaking havoc on your page layouts.
* Xmla security - Old feature updated for use with tomcat 5.5 - can secure xmla datasource with basic authentication. This current version now supports xml sucurity for both tc5.0 and 5.5.
* We have eliminated the "busy" page, which caused more user experience problems than it solved.
* Folder_Security - Folders security can now be configured per folder - specify all, or any specific set of users who can view a certain directory.... read more

Upcoming release of OpenI 1.1

Dear OpenI Community:

Thanks for all your support so far. We have been very pleasantly surprised by the interest, participation, and feedback. We hope to meet your expectations going forward. Also a special thanks to those who contributed their code, time, and just mental CPU-time in general to implement new features and fix existing bugs.

We are currenlty working hard on a 1.1 release, which will mainly focus on providing Mondrian support, among other things. Some of you have already seen active discussion threads both here at OpenI as well as Mondrian forums (thanks a lot to Mondrian team for working on their XMLA interface). Essentially, this release will include Mondrian so you can install OpenI, point to any existing relational database and start building cubes and building interactive OLAP analyses. A beta version should be out this week, and we hope to have a final release within a couple of weeks. ... read more

OpenI at SD Forum's BI SIG

July 19, 2005, Palo Alto.

We had a good presentation yesterday at the Software Development Forum's Business Intelligence SIG. http://www.sdforum.org/SDForum/Templates/CalendarEvent.aspx?CID=1687

There were about 30-40 people in the audience, and we had a very interesting and interactive discussion around the role of open source in BI, and of course about OpenI as well. Julian Hyde and Sherman Wood from the Mondrian project were also there (thanks), so the presentation definitely felt more of a community gathering.... read more
