[News] Review of Free Software BI, BIRT

Hash: SHA1

Jaspersoft - is free BI the way to go?

| However, we are confident that Jaspersoft, to be specific, is worthy of 
| consideration for BI applications in general. 


Sex, Rock and Roll, and Open Source Reporting Frameworks

| I liken BIRT and Actuate 10 as a reporting tool equivalent to OpenOffice.org, 
| where you have the FOSS version, OpenOffice.org which anyone can freely 
| download, but you also have Sun’s StarOffice and IBM’s Lotus Symphony, which 
| are commercial derivatives. You can certainly build rich web-based reporting 
| applications on BIRT, but Actuate 10 is the “polished” version and comes with 
| technical support as well as other commercially developed modules that you 
| would otherwise have to spend time and money and develop yourself. The cool 
| thing about having both of these products in house from the perspective of an 
| IT shop is that with Actuate 10, you get the support and the rich reporting 
| features, but if you need to extend it, you’ve got all of BIRT to draw upon 
| as well.          



Actuate Integrates Open Source, Courts BI Developers

| Actuate also entered into the open source market in 2005 with BIRT (BI and
| Reporting Tools) contribution to Eclipse and their open source BIRT
| community. Actuate has bet that the use of open source will be a key
| component for their future and starting point for developers, where at some
| point will purchase support, services and then the more robust commercial
| products.
