A new release of the Palo OpenOffice Calc Plugin has been published this week on Sourceforge.
It fusions the advanced possibilities of OLAP technology with the approven approaches of modern spreadsheet applications making instantly available an enormous amount of server side data for spreadsheet analysis.

While the project has been dormant for quite a while, the need for a Open Source OLAP client inspired proclos developers to:

  • Supporting new Palo 5.0 server while beeing backwards compatible to Palo 3.2 CE.
  • Drastically increasing performance allowing the smooth browsing of many thousand spreadsheet cells.
  • Fixing many bugs and increasing usability.

In contrast to the (now clsoed source) Excel plugin available from Jedox, the Palo OpenOffice Calc Plugin runs on any platform having available current OpenOffice or LibreOffice builds – including Linux, Mac OSX and Windows.

Beside efficient spreadsheet browsing it offers a modeller including palo rule support and the possibility to connect to a range of XMLA-capable OLAP servers using the olap4j library.

Of course it does still lack some of the fancy advanded features of the premium Excel Client, but provided the ongoing support of developers and companies (offering contributions and donations) we are positive that this project can be exemplary for the diversification of the eco system around the technology from Jedox as proclaimed by Jedox.

Technically the plugin is based on version 2.0.3 provided by Tensegrity (last open source version), but developement is based upon a cooperation of the original group of developers from TU Chemnitz and proclos.

Nightly snapshots containing also the most actual source code can be obtained here.

Thanx to all individuals, organizations and companies, who contributed to this great project!

“Be realistic, demand the impossible!” was the motto of the year 2006, when members of Proclos started to work on an web-based ETL tool geared towards transformation of all kinds of flat data sources into multidimensional data cubes for later OLAP-analysis.

Contacting Jedox AG, the manufacturer of Palo-OLAP-Server, was the starting point of a great success story, as our tool rapidly evolved into the product Palo-ETL-Server with many thousands installations world-wide and a large community of satisfied end-users in the BI departments of numerous companies.

While still being activly involved in Palo-ETL-Server developement for Jedox to make it the best ETL product on the market, some of our own projects eventually posed the need for an embedded ETL tool with needs transgressing the existing product-centric strategy towards a more tool-centric strategy. So we decided to give birth to project Colibri.

Colibri is based on the Palo-ETL-Server 3.2 release and is intended for developers to implement their own components and extensions preferably for embedded use within other J2EE applications. As starting point Colibri features the following extensions:

  • Integration into hibernate domain models with the ability to extract, transform and load entire domain objects, which makes it ideal for domain model import, export and consolidation (e.g in opensmc).
  • Integration of a syslog server, which accepts log data from all syslog compatible clients and loads them online into cubes, which makes it a cool solution for e.g. real time multidimensional network analyis.
  • Support for reliable messaging protocols and enterprise integration patterns via integration of ActiveMQ, which allows for a distributed network of data sources such as encountered in cloud stack environments.
  • Improvements on web service extracts, which allow usage as generic connector for all kinds of sophisticated web services such as the eBay-API.

Colibri sources are available here.  All dependencies are fetched from the Proclos Nexus repository by Maven.

Mastering the challenge of developing an Open-Source solution for the public administration, members of Proclos sucessfully accomplished the Content-Pool project.
Internally nicknamed Fluxomat (in allegory to the Flux-Generator’s deus ex machina ability to enable the impossible), it features a web-based software for fetching, persisting, filtering, editing, syndicating and remixing RSS- and Atom-Feeds in various formats including Media RSS containing multimedia data.
The aim is to support a team of professional editors to benefit from distributed content production, while being able

  • to use a standardized central metadata repository for content tagging
  • to quarantine, overlay and re-style the content within a single application.
  • to create own topic specific meta-feeds based on relevant content
  • to (re-)present those meta-feeds in the context of related new articles

Content-Pool is built upon enterprise java technology, runs within apache tomcat and integrates into existing security infrastructure supporting Gondor / Portalverbund interfaces.

Mastering the long and winding road in developing Open-Source software solutions for the social-medical healthcare sector was finally crowned with sweet success.
A Proclos team and its cooperation partner Verein Dialog, the leading ambulant addiction aid agency of Austria, were awarded with the T-Systems Innovation Award Vienna for the project openSMC.

The jury did espescially honor the fact that openSMC:

  • enables a smooth and transparent information flow among specialized groups of cooperating professionals.
  • reduces administrative overhead while complying to intensive documentation and evaluation needs.
  • consequently directs more time towards effective client care and client support processes.

Beside common CRM-features adapted for medical needs, special features of openSMC include support for:

  • multiprofessionial and multidimensional diagnostics.
  • arbitrary information views, alerting and notificating.
  • prescription of narcotics conforming to legal standards.
  • changing data acquisition needs by an integrated survey engine.
  • highly flexible data export / import by integration of Colibri

Special thanx to ZIT, who co-funded the project as part of the ZIT08 Plus innovation program. Source code is available here.

Customer: Verein Dialog

Being the leading ambulant addiction aid agency of Austria, Verein Dialog poses sophisticated demands on its business infrastructure integrating multiple operational sites into a single efficient organisation. Members of Proclos are proud to have taken a lead part in the design and implementation of DEBI – the Dialog Enterprise Business Infrastructure. As its core feature DEBI provides a virtualized (VMWare ESX) terminal server farm, hosting multiple MS Windows and Ubuntu server systems, which are accessed throughout the entire organization via more than 100 thin clients and mobile road warrior installations.

Members of Proclos focussed on the setup or improvement of the following services:

  • Award winning opensmc installation (dialog:easy) for all client treatment and documentation processes.
  • Clustered Postgresql 9.1 Server as backend for dialog:easy.
  • Postfix Mail Server complete with spam detection and virus filter.
  • Developement and Test Server environments for  further in-house developement of dialog:easy

As Verein Dialog operates on sensitive medical data sets, security is of extremly high concern. We met this concern by deploying pfSense firewalls on Soekris embedded boards with crypto card hardware to support IPSec tunnels for all site-to-site and roadwarrior-to-site connections. As a special feature we also managed to implement a tunnel-in-tunnel setup for distributed e-card readers to a single gina-box instance helping to minimize fees and connection costs.

Deploying Open-Source Software Solutions into the highly proprietary area of automation systems was the challenge of the projects Steffi and Janus.

In this process members of Proclos mastered the cross-platform integration of numerous heterogenios technologies from the network infrastructure to the business intelligence layer and finally successfully contributed:

  • a Zope3 based web-application as monitoring front end for a solar crystal manufacturing chain, which evaluates and visualizes data from the automation process stored in a relational backend and provides both an ad hoc SQL-based analysis tool as well as an interface for exporting the data to a Palo-OLAP system for further multidimensional analysis.
  • a Centos based virtualization environment for rapid deployment and rollout of the entire automation system providing a Postgresql cluster based on DRBD, Corosync and Pacemaker as relational backend. The setup is completed with a virtualized pfSense firewall providing IP-range independence for the cluster and full remote desktop access to all virtual machines using the rdp protocol.

Special thanx to Jeremias Keihsler (OMB) for being both an excellent co-developer and customer in this project.
