OpenI 1.1 Releases: Open Source BI Becomes More Real

OpenI is an open source BI application that provides out-of-box OLAP analysis and reporting. OpenI is available as a J2EE web application, and supports XMLA-compliant OLAP servers including Microsoft Analysis Services and Mondrian. Users can point OpenI to any relational database and start publishing interactive OLAP reports on the web. Future versions of OpenI will enable analysis of other data sources such as relational databases and data mining models.

With the 1.1 release, OpenI provides full integration with popular open source OLAP server Mondrian, and ships with a copy of Mondrian to enable a simpler installation. OpenI focuses on combining different open source BI components into a single integrated stack that is more usable and accessible to the end users.
