Get more: Openbravo and Pentaho deliver BI-enabled open ERP

By Manufacturing Business Technology Staff September 9, 2008

A new agreement will allow Openbravo to embed and distribute Pentaho ‘s open source business intelligence (BI) capabilities with the flagship Openbravo ERP suite.
By embedding open source BI modules from Pentaho, Openbravo is enabling its worldwide customer base to get more strategic and analytical value from the information that those customers capture and manage within their Openbravo ERP systems. The breadth and modularity of Pentaho’s offering will enable everything from embedded operational reporting on day-to-day operations, as well as extraction and integration of Openbravo ERP data with information from other systems for advanced data warehousing and OLAP analysis.
The integrated products are planned for delivery later this year.
“We chose Pentaho because of its extensive functionality and expertise in business intelligence, and because they’ve made it so easy to embed dashboards and business intelligence within our product line,” says Manel Sarasa, CEO, Openbravo. “We recognized strong demand for an integrated solution that brings our popular technologies together in a way that creates significant additional customer value in a commercial open source delivery model.”
