Jaspersoft’s business intelligence platform connects to any data source, from MongoDB to Hadoop to traditional relational databases like Teradata.
The commercial open source company has also been able to keep pace with the marketplace. Jaspersoft announced two new connections in 2012 to cloud data analytics and warehousing services, Google BigQuery and Amazon Web Services’ Redshift.
In this video report from the company’s offices in San Francisco, Karl Van den Bergh, Jaspersoft’s vice president of product and alliances, said Amazon approached the company to be one of the two out-of-the-box BI options for Redshift. Van den Bergh said he expects that Jaspersoft’s robust developer community will help the cloud data warehouse service disrupt the market, as Amazon says it can store and analyze a terabyte of data for less than $1,000 per year.
Jaspersoft was founded in 2003, and its open source business intelligence platform has more than sixteen million downloads and 15,000 commercial customers in more than 100 countries across the globe. According to Jaspersoft, that makes it the most widely used BI software in the world.
