The Open Source Business Analytics Suite


Knowage open source business analytics suite inherits the long history of SpagoBI. The Community Edition continues this tradition, providing value to the community of developers and users.


Knowage provides advanced self-service capabilities that give autonomy to the end-user, here able to build his own analysis, explore and organize his own data space.


Knowage is developed by professionals and the Enterprise Edition provides the full set of services to guarantee its adoption even in mission critical applications.


Knowage adopts open standards and can be used in various environments without considerable requirements. Moreover, its modules can be combined each others to get a tailored solution.


The open source business analytics suite is composed of several modules, each one conceived for a specific analytical domain. They can be used individually or combined with one another to ensure full coverage of user’ requirements, allowing to build a tailored product. Knowage is a smart solution since the beginning.
