The marriage of ECM and BI offers a compelling solution to some common and emerging challenges facing today’s content management solution architects, such as support for ECM governance. Business analytics and reporting from the ECM application enable the generation of automated, actionable metrics for content-centric solutions.
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. The solution addresses 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.
Nuxeo client Mike Brown, Director of Software Platform Development at DataServ, a provider of a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform for Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable and Human Resources, observes, “We are using the Nuxeo platform for our hosted content management solution. Our customers required on-demand, dynamic reports to identify bottlenecks in their process and continue making process improvements. We wanted to offer a reporting functionality that was highly secure, and managed within the same application interface, for a smooth end user experience. The Nuxeo / BIRT solution offers this extended functionality, with security controls all in one place, based on technologies that we trust.”
A technology alliance between Nuxeo and Actuate, the people behind BIRT® and the leading open source Business Intelligence (BI) vendor, provides a solid foundation for an open source ECM / BI offering from two established industry leaders with connections to the Eclipse Foundation. BIRT is an Eclipse Project managed by Actuate, and Nuxeo has recently contributed its Content Repository technology to Eclipse. “Actuate is pleased to coordinate with Nuxeo to provide an open source ECM / BI solution,” explained Sunny Choi, Director of Business Development and Alliances of Actuate. “This integration will offer increased value for content management application users in terms of analytics and dashboards, with the simplicity of a one-stop shop.”
The Nuxeo - BIRT Integration package is available on the Nuxeo Marketplace.
