Pentaho reports on software defects

Pentaho Corp has rolled out new defect reporting software that is built as an extension to its Open BI Suite platform.

By CBR Staff Writer

Software Quality reports for JIRA is Pentaho’s first horizontal reporting application. It is aimed at users of JIRA, an open source bug tracking and project management system developed and distributed by Australian firm Altassian Software Systems Pty Ltd.

Pentaho said the addition of BI reporting tools capabilities will afford developers richer and deeper insights across their software quality management process.

JIRA is used by companies like HP, Oracle, Cisco, GE, McDonalds and Citigroup, and includes a feature set covering issue tracking, full text search, customizable workflows and alerting.

The new application effectively extends JIRA’s own limited reporting capabilities. It is listed as part of the Software Quality Reports for JIRA/Bugz project and hosted on

Both the application and the source code are available under the Mozilla Public License. They require the Pentaho 1.2 RC3 software or later.

Pentaho was founded just over two years ago by ex-employees of commercial BI software firms like SAS Institute, Cognos and Hyperion. The company has already amassed 1.5 million downloads of its Pentaho BI Suite, which comprises of reporting, OLAP, ETL, data mining and workflow open source projects.

Pentaho is the primary sponsor and owner of popular open source projects including JFreeReport (enterprise reporting), Kettle (ETL), and Weka (data mining).
