AssaiDCMS reports with open source plug-in

Engineering document management toolset embeds Actuate’s Birt reporting toolset.

Engineering document management specialist AssaiDCMS now offers reporting and data visualization leveraging the Birt open source reporting toolset.

Assai claims that Birt provides a flexible environment that allows users to meet company-specific reporting requirements without the need for ‘expensive tools’ such as Business Objects or Crystal reports.

Assai’s reports are now all available in Birt. With some training, end users can customize these or build their own user-defined reports that can be added to the Assai portfolio.

Birt technology is used to create data visualizations and reports that can be embedded into rich client and web applications. The open source code is a top-level project in the Eclipse foundation, with a freemium business model supported by Actuate. Key users and contributors include Cisco, Open Text and IBM. Birt claims over 12 million downloads of the software.
