Actuate's open source Business Intelligence (BI) platform has been allied to the Nuxeo's open source Enterprise Content Management (ECM) technology to deliver a new package to connect Nuxeo Enterprise Platform (EP)-based applications and the open source Business Intelligence tool, Eclipse BIRT.
The Nuxeo-BIRT integration is said to offer report design and access from within a Nuxeo ECM application. The marriage of these two technologies is targeted at content management solution architects and developers working on business analytics. The new offering allows reporting from the ECM application to enable the generation of automated, actionable metrics for content-centric solutions.
BIRT is an Eclipse project managed by Actuate and Nuxeo has recently contributed its Content Repository technology to Eclipse.
The Nuxeo-BIRT Integration offers integrated reporting capabilities on top of Nuxeo EP-based applications, enabling the design, rendering, and access of reports and analytics. The BIRT Engine has been integrated in Nuxeo EP, so that reporting capabilities are available without leaving the Nuxeo application, and security controls can be managed in one place.
This solution also claims to address the needs of:
- Content management solution architects, by offering advanced reporting tools within the Nuxeo ECM platform.
- ECM application users, by providing easy, secure access to sophisticated, real-time reports directly from the ECM application interface.
- System integrators, with a ready-to-use ECM/BI integration built with the robust, leading BIRT and Nuxeo technologies, so that they can quickly ramp up on projects and proofs of concept.
