SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Jaspersoft, maker of the world's most widely used business intelligence (BI) software, today announced an expansion of their partnership with Red Hat, the world's leading provider of open source solutions. The companies are delivering an open source solution that enables fast data-to-dashboards, driving rapid insight in any organization. The joint offering leverages the best-in-class data virtualization technology from Red Hat's JBoss Enterprise Data Services Platform with the reporting, analysis and dashboarding capabilities in Jaspersoft's BI Suite, creating a powerful data analysis solution without the added expense and delay of building a data warehouse.

In today's complex business environment, it is common to have many different sources of data in disparate locations that are in constant flux. Given this complexity, it is practically impossible to get a complete, up-to-the-minute view of business performance. It is also costly and time consuming to build a centralized data warehouse. The new data-to-dashboards solution from Jaspersoft and Red Hat addresses these business challenges with data virtualization technology that centralizes and simplifies data access without requiring any data movement, enabling companies to quickly visualize and analyze information.

"Working with Red Hat, we're bringing a compelling solution to address a critical market need for better and faster insight into data," said Karl Van den Bergh, Vice President of Product and Alliances of Jaspersoft. "With Red Hat's best-in-class data virtualization technology, access to disparate data is both easy and fast."

"The combination of JBoss Enterprise Data Services Platform and Jaspersoft's flexible and modern BI suite provides businesses with a simple and quick way to visualize their data," said Craig Muzilla, vice president and general manager, Middleware Business at Red Hat. "Together, we're making the data-to-dashboards idea a reality for businesses of all sizes by integrating multiple data sources into a single, user-friendly entry point, allowing for easy analysis of crucial information."  

Key Features of the solution include:

  • The full Jaspersoft BI Suite includes powerful reporting, analysis and dashboarding
  • JBoss Enterprise Data Services Platform, provides best-in-class data virtualization with standards-based read/write access to heterogeneous data stores in real time with enterprise-grade performance, data integrity and security
  • The power of open source software: higher quality, greater security and easier integration at a vastly accelerated pace.
