BIRT is an amazing reporting tool, recognized as a leader in the open source business intelligence field. Visioneo reportlet is a state-of-the-art portlet JSR 286, allowing to easily embed in a portal your reports developed with the popular Eclipse Birt designer. Reports are then displayed in secured portlet windows, and you can interact with their parameters and drilling features. It can be used as a mashboard component in private users pages, as a complete reporting tool for your intranet, or even as publication / marketing reports on your public pages!
A free Community Edition with a very rich set of features, and without any limitations in the number of users, reports or processor cores! A cheap professional edition is available with exciting additional features.

It ships with the Open Source Birt Engine in libraries, therefore you don't have anything else to install to make it work!
Just drag & drop one or several Visioneo Portlet window(s) on your portal page and select which reports to display! Report parameters are based on jQuery UI framework, therefore users can select which data to display with light, elegant and ergonomic widgets.
Visioneo portlet can exchange informations with your own portlets using the standard inter-portlet communication events. WSRP (Web Service Remote Portlet) is also supported!
Visioneo is a true portlet application and does not make use of IFrames: all reporting tasks are entirely running in the portal scope. Therefore it automatically inherits all the functionality we can get in last generation portals: security management, access permissions, user roles, localization, dashboards, document management, workflow and much more!
The context of the portal is transmitted to birt reports, such that it is possible for example to filter dataset queries on user ID, user groups, a portal attribute, etc.
Effective massive parallelism, and a transparent cache management allow to improve the user experience
