Next OpenOffice release to include Pentaho BI

Filed under
OOo

OpenOffice.org estimates it has more than 40 million users around the world. The open-source desktop suite is included in several of the leading Linux distributions including Red Hat Inc.'s eponymous offering, Novell Inc.'s Suse Linux and Canonical Ltd.'s Ubuntu.

Pentaho's reporting engine, Pentaho Reporting, will be integrated with the next release of OpenOffice.org, version 2.3, which is due out in the second half of this year, according to Lance Walter, vice president of marketing at Pentaho. Sun and Pentaho had been in discussions for around a year about integrating BI functionality into OpenOffice.org, he said.

The combination of Pentaho Reporting with a new Report Designer developed by Sun will enable OpenOffice.org users to create reports containing content from the OpenOffice.org Base database as well as from a variety of proprietary and open-source relational databases and other sources.

The GravityZoo OOo porting project

Date: Mon, 16 Apr 2007 00:38:36 +0200
From: Marcel v. Birgelen
Subject: The GravityZoo OOo porting project

In the past 3 years we have been working on the GravityZoo Framework, a
networked computing platform. Applications written or adapted for this
platform run "in the network", rather than just on a server or client.
The framework can be used among others to transform existing
applications into "net enabled" applications which can be hosted in the
framework and become accessible from practically any device via an IP
network.

At this moment we are preparing a GravityZoo OpenOffice.org porting
project. Our goal is to bring OpenOffice.org to the GravityZoo
Framework. In essence we want to bring OOo to the Internet for the
delivery as a service to the community.

When OpenOffice.org is "GravityZood", it will become a suite of
productivity applications that are always available, online, via a broad
range of devices.

The real road to democracy: how open source is sparking a revolution in enterprise

Forget the dotcom bubble burst of the noughties; never before has the promise of a digital economy ranked so highly in the global marketplace. Having faced significant downturns over the last decade or so, many economies – the UK, Portugal and Iceland, to name a few – have spawned a new wave of digital entrepreneurs. Those who perhaps found themselves out of a job, or facing unprecedented levels of competition for limited employment opportunities after education, have created their own jobs and companies, bringing new found energy and increased competitiveness into the enterprise sector.

An About.com Review Of Bodhi Linux

Bodhi Linux is a distribution I have followed for a number of years. I used to have it installed on my Acer Aspire Netbook and it featured in my list of "12 great distributions for netbooks" article that I wrote back in October 2013. The point of Bodhi Linux is to get out of your way and let you decide which applications are installed on your computer. I gave my previous review of Bodhi Linux the title "Quick but Quirky". The reason for that title was that the desktop whilst whizzing along quite nicely had a few strange Enlightenment-isms which would have made it a probably no-no for beginners. How does the latest version measure up? Read on and find out. Read more
