Anouncing the release of Saiku 2.0 - Next Generation Open Source Analytics

For some quite time, the Pentaho community (specifically Tom Barber and Paul Stöllberger) is talking about a new web UI for data analysis (OLAP slice-n-dice) and after a few month of hard work they have released version 2.0 of Saiku and it is fully integrated with Pentaho.





Installation takes less than 10 minutes:


First download Saiku plugin and war file

$ wget
$ wget


Next we'll install the plugin and war file

$ unzip
$ mv saiku biserver-ce/pentaho-solutions/system/
$ mv saiku-webapp-foodmart-2.0-SNAPSHOT.war biserver-ce/tomcat/webapps/saiku.war



Installation is done, you'll have to start the bi-server for the war to be deployed (extracted) and than you can add your datasource(s) by creating a new file under biserver-ce/tomcat/webapps/saiku/WEB-INF/classes/saiku-datasources/

I have configured Saiku to show the SQR cubes with this code:
