Actuate Enhances Open Source Eclipse BIRT With Connectors To MongoDB, Cassandra, POJO, And Emitters For Microsoft Office Documents

Stocks in this article: BIRT

Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: BIRT), The BIRT Company – delivering more insights to more people than all BI companies combined, today announced they, together with the Eclipse community, have added new connectors and enhancements to the latest version of open source BIRT for developers. BIRT 4.3 is available as part of the just-released Eclipse Foundation’s Kepler Release Train. Freely downloadable through the Eclipse Foundation and on BIRT Exchange, BIRT 4.3 is available immediately.

Of special importance in the age of Big Data, BIRT 4.3 introduces support for the popular NoSQL-style MongoDB and Cassandra databases. MongoDB (from "hu mongo us") is an open source document-oriented database system. It stores structured data as JSON-like documents with dynamic schemas (in the BSON format). Cassandra is an Apache Software Foundation open-source, distributed-database management system. Designed to handle very large amounts of data spread out across many commodity servers, it provides a highly available service with no single point of failure.

BIRT 4.3 provides access to these databases to smooth integration of data into BIRT-created visualizations within business analytic apps, including those built for Big Data. The broad support for Big Data within BIRT, including Hadoop support via HIVE, enables developers to publish content from these sources and extend the value of Big Data to a wider audience in the enterprise.

“Due to ease of use and flexibility, BIRT is an integral part of our data visualization development environment. We can easily develop apps that present data through compelling and intuitive visualizations, plus provide the customization our end-users demand,” said Sai Paravastu, Technical Director for Carrington Associates. “With this new release, we’re able to connect as needed with Big Data sources like MongoDB and Cassandra for those projects that require it.”

BIRT 4.3 also introduces easy access to JavaScript libraries, access to POJO (Plain Old Java Object) data sources, and new emitters for Microsoft Excel, Word and PowerPoint, enabling BIRT users to publish and share information using these popular formats.
