SAN FRANCISCO, May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Jaspersoft, the world's most widely used business intelligence software, today announced it won the SIIA 2010 CODiE Award for "Best Cloud Infrastructure Platform." Jaspersoft Cloud BI powers business intelligence for the cloud as part of a joint solution stack with RightScale, Vertica and Talend.
"Jaspersoft is the only BI vendor enabling true multi-tenancy while providing a common platform for on-premise, virtualized, SaaS and Cloud deployments, and Jaspersoft customers successfully deploy today in all of those environments," said Brian Gentile, CEO of Jaspersoft. "The cloud offers many usability, elasticity, scale and price advantages to organizations of all sizes, making BI solutions affordable and accessible to entirely new markets. With Jaspersoft, customers have a complete, easy-to-use solution for BI, ETL and data warehousing in the cloud."
"This award is further confirmation that reporting and analytics have really become part of the fundamental fabric for cloud platform infrastructure in much the same way as they already have for application development in other deployment models," said Gentile.
BI deployment in the cloud is accelerating. In a recent IDC survey[i], 50 percent of respondents expressed high likelihood to pursue the public cloud for BI/Analytics and nearly 70 percent expressed likelihood for private cloud deployment.
"We are proud that our partner Jaspersoft is recognized for bringing such innovation to the cloud along with partners Talend and Vertica. With RightScale's cloud management platform, customers can more easily deploy and manage their BI initiatives in the cloud," said Michael Crandell, CEO of RightScale.
"Full 360 is thrilled, as a premier distributor of the full cloud BI stack, that Jaspersoft and our partners have been recognized for this unique solution. We know our cloud BI customers are delighted to be using it," says Rohit Amarnath, founder and CTO of Full 360.
Jaspersoft Cloud BI launched in August 2009 in partnership with RightScale, the leader in cloud management; Talend the leader in open source data integration; and Vertica with its leading enterprise analytic database. This integrated platform enables customers to increase agility and lower costs. It also provides the ideal solution for customers who need to rapidly deploy project-based BI, to provision new BI applications on the fly, and to quickly respond to major market changes. Jaspersoft Cloud BI is available in a pay-as-you-go model.
Jaspersoft Cloud BI was selected as the CODiE Award winner after three rounds of judging by a panel of technology writers, market analysts, and industry experts. "The CODiE Awards represent excellence in the software and digital information industries.
