The Open Source Analytics and Business Intelligence Suite

KNOWAGE is the new generation of open source analytical solution, as a natural evolution of the well known SpagoBI.

KNOWAGE answers to a more modern vision of the data analytics, providing advanced self-service capabilities that give autonomy to the end-user, now able to build his own analysis and explore his own data space, also combining data that come from big/cloud data sources. 

KNOWAGE is available on two versions:
• the community edition, with the whole set of analytical capabilities, is part of the software stack managed by OW2 as SpagoBI always did;
• the enterprise edition, provided and guaranteed directly from Engineering Group - the leading Italian software and services company, with a commercial offering and some facilities for the administrator.

Market Readiness Synthesis

KNOWAGE development started in 2005 under the SpagoBI brand name, it is a fully mature platform with flexible modular architecture that makes it highly suitable for integration into business solutions. KNOWAGE competes against suites specialized in data exploration, data mining and visualisation. Professional support is provided by KNOWAGE Labs and partners. A significant part of its sales depend on the business units of Engineering Group, the largest systems integrator in Italy; while this makes its  market visibility is not as high as one might expect, despite a substantial global customer base, its ensures the project’s long-term sustainability.
