Michael Tarallo, Pentaho Pre-Sales Director - michaeltarallo.blogspot.com, gave a demonstration on how to use the Google Visualization API with Action Sequences.
This presentation goes way beyond the Google Visualization API and is an excellent tutorial for anyone using or interested in using the power of the xaction in their BI solutions. Mike also presents integrating xactions with Reporting 3.6, CDF and dashboards
Pentaho and the Google Visualization API
There are many times on a sales call when I am asked, "How does Pentaho integrate with other 'packages'?". Now 'integrate' and 'packages' can mean a number of different things. It can cover anything in the realm of application frameworks, extension points, plug-in architectures, data access, data integration, content delivery, distribution, ETL, SOAs, APIs, portals, etc. However, upon narrowing it down, a common request is one where a developer wants to know how Pentaho can use other 3rd party visualizations. Those visualizations that are provided by a number of vendors, both open source and proprietary.
Join this Technical WebEx, to see how I use Pentaho and and the Google Visualization API to create enhanced interactive visuals that can be easily added to a Pentaho Dashboard using the Pentaho Dashboard Designer.
Just another example of the power and flexibility of the Pentaho BI Platform. With Pentaho you are not only able to provide point solutions for the here and now problems..., you are able to evolve with it to also meet your future needs.
