Engineering Group and OW2 announce Knowage as reference brand for open source business analytics offering

The new version of SpagoBI will be available with Knowage, now in the OW2 offering

O’reilly Convention, Austin (Texas), May 9, 2017Engineering Group - the leading Italian software and services company - and OW2 - one of the top-4 global open source organizations - announce Knowage, the new brand for SpagoBI project.

The new brand marks the value of the well-known open source business intelligence and analytical suite after significant functional and technological transformations and a new offering model. Knowage supports a modern vision of the data analytics, providing new self-service capabilities that give autonomy to the end-user, now able to build his own analysis and explore his own data space, also combining data that come from different sources. 

The user experience has been entirely redefined and is now adaptive to different devices and immediately usable with tablets and smartphones. Moreover, all the designers are now web-based, making the Meta module deprecated and the Studio module strictly related to the report (Birt/Jasper engine) design task.

Knowage is available under two versions:
• the community edition, open source, downloadable form the OW2 forge, including the whole set of analytical capabilities;
• the enterprise edition, provided and guaranteed by Engineering, including facilities for the system administrator and supported by a new commercial offering

Knowage CE provides a lot of interesting features that current SpagoBI users were waiting for” says Grazia Cazzin, SpagoBI project leader and now Knowage product director. “The value provided by this new version and the revolution in our community and business models led us to build a new brand to mark the birth of a new age”.

We are proud and happy to support this move towards the Knowage product line and we will be supporting it actively in the future” says Cédric Thomas, OW2 CEO. “Knowage will bring value to OW2 code base by giving to the SpagoBI solution a new and stronger dimension”.  

The Knowage project is showcased at OSCON from May 10th to 11th on the OW2 booth (#123-4).
