SpringSource and Pentaho Announce Technology Partnership

SpringSource and Pentaho have unveiled a strategic technology partnership to meet widespread demand for a new generation of business intelligence (BI) and reporting capabilities built upon Spring.

Specifically, the companies are enhancing the integration of Pentaho's embeddable reporting and business intelligence capabilities with the SpringSource Application Platform, a collection of products designed to provide the optimal environment to build, run and manage enterprise Java applications that utilize Spring-based technologies. The SpringSource Application Platform includes SpringSource Enterprise that delivers the software, services, and technical support necessary to ensure that organizations develop and run Spring-powered enterprise applications more productively, securely and with the greatest uptime. The Platform also comprises SpringSource dm Server, a completely modular, OSGi-based Java server to run enterprise Java applications and Spring-powered applications with a new degree of flexibility and reliability.

According to Gartner, adoption of open-source BI being used as an enterprise-wide standard platform will triple by 2012. To meet the widespread demand of open source BI applications, Pentaho and Spring will further integrate their respective product lines to equip developers, ISVs, and enterprises with a mature, scalable and proven embeddable open source Java reporting engine. The two organizations will also conduct joint marketing, sales and support activities. Pentaho, the established commercial open source alternative for business intelligence, is also a SpringSource Certified Solution Partner.
