Get more: Openbravo and Pentaho deliver BI-enabled open ERP
A new agreement will allow Openbravo to embed and distribute Pentaho 's open source business intelligence (BI) capabilities with the flagship Openbravo ERP suite.
By embedding open source BI modules from Pentaho, Openbravo is enabling its worldwide customer base to get more strategic and analytical value from the information that those customers capture and manage within their Openbravo ERP systems. The breadth and modularity of Pentaho's offering will enable everything from embedded operational reporting on day-to-day operations, as well as extraction and integration of Openbravo ERP data with information from other systems for advanced data warehousing and OLAP analysis.
The integrated products are planned for delivery later this year.
"We chose Pentaho because of its extensive functionality and expertise in business intelligence, and because they've made it so easy to embed dashboards and business intelligence within our product line," says Manel Sarasa, CEO, Openbravo. "We recognized strong demand for an integrated solution that brings our popular technologies together in a way that creates significant additional customer value in a commercial open source delivery model."

2012 Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
