The Pentaho BI Suite is open source Business Intelligence suite with integrated reporting, dashboard, data mining, workflow and ETL capabilities
Business intelligence (BI) refers to computer-based techniques used in spotting, digging-out, and analyzing business data, such as sales revenue by products and/or departments, or by associated costs and incomes
Use Cases #
Liferay generates an enormous ammount of usage data that will benefit of a business intelligence tool so that managers can track the information in Liferay portals
The main goal of this project is to analyze how can we implement a bridge to communicate Liferay with Pentaho.
The scope of this project would be the creation of a plugin portlet that is able to send Liferay usage data to a Pentaho system in order to be able of creating reports and rendering pentaho statistic graphics in Liferay.
This project will be implemented in two separated phases:
- Extend Liferay services so that they send information and data to Pentaho systems
- Create a reports/dashboard portlet that is capable of defining reports form Pentaho and display them in Liferay
Skills Needed #
- Required: Java, JSP
- Nice to have: Liferay, Pentaho
