Daily dose of open source
Recognizing that end-users struggling with overly-complex BI Tools is the number 1 reason why Business Intelligence projects fail to deliver the desired ROI, the Wabit was designed to conquer this primary issue.
DataVision is an Open Source reporting tool similar to Crystal Reports. Reports can be designed using a drag-and-drop GUI. They may be run, viewed, and printed from the application or exported as HTML, XML, PDF, Excel, LaTeX2e, DocBook, or tab- or comma-delimited text files. The output files produced by LaTeX2e and DocBook can in turn be used to produce PDF, text, HTML, PostScript, and more.
ART is a lightweight, multiplatform web based query tool and reporting environment. SQL queries can be published in a few minutes. It supports tabular, crosstab, charts, scheduling, email alerts. Results are exportable to spreadsheet, pdf or can be embedded in a portal-like page to create a simple but effective Business Intelligence solution.
The open source project JMagallanes is an end user application for Olap and Dynamic Reports written in Java/J2EE. It combines static reports (based on JasperReports), a Swing pivot table for OLAP analysis, and charts (based on JFreeChart). It reads from many data sources as SQL, Excel, XML, and others, and produces many outputs as PDF, XML, and application specific files for later off-line visualization of reports.
