The intention of the PalOOCa Project is to develop an alternative to the Palo Excel Add-in. Although the Excel Add-in is a valuable BI-Tool for many companies, with PalOOCa we will also be able to offer a fully open-source based BI-MOLAP-stack which will be available using Java as platform, OpenOffice.org as front-end and the Palo database as multidimensional MOLAP-server. PalOOCa serves as OLAP interface.
The first stable version 1.0 was published in July 2008. Development goes on with improvements in user interface, documentation and functionality. Keep connected!
