Open Office Expands Offerings with Report Designer

(Archived in: Online Usability Technology in Plain English)

Open Office announced today plans to extend the power of its database application with Report Designer, based on the Pentaho open-source reporting engine.

The strengths of open source and open standards are once again demonstrated with this collaboration between the Open Office solution and Pentaho . Report Designer will give users the ability to create sophisticated reports from various sources, and then saving them using the OASIS Open Document format (ODF), the ISO-approved open standard for file format.

OpenOffice.org continues to work towards being a more powerful and viable option for small businesses and Digital Nomads.
