SAN FRANCISCO, July 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Jaspersoft, maker of the world's most widely used business intelligence (BI) platform, is experiencing tremendous growth and momentum in the Latin American countries. The company has grown its revenues by more than three times in the region over the past two years, making Latin America one of the fastest-growing markets for the company. Customers cite the company's robust feature set and value compared to proprietary business intelligence solutions, and its easy integration with other technologies as the main reasons for selecting Jaspersoft.
While most of the growth recently has been from companies in Brazil, Colombia, Chile and Mexico, Jaspersoft is seeing an increased customer set from Argentina and Central America and Caribbean. Customers have come from all kinds of industries, but Jaspersoft has seen exceptional interest from the banking, pharmaceutical and telecommunications sectors. Jaspersoft customers in Latin American include companies such as:
- Amarey Medical
- Banco Santander de Mexico S.A de C.V.
- Federacion Nacional de Cafeteros de Colombia, the parent company of Juan Valdez coffee
- Psicofarma S.A. de C.V.
"Our customers in Latin America are looking for a business intelligence solution that works with the systems they already have in place, but lets them get more data and information out of them to make better decisions," said Brian Gentile, CEO of Jaspersoft. "They also want a solution that is budget-friendly. Jaspersoft gives them the rich feature-set of a proprietary solution but with a lower total cost of ownership and without the headaches of integration and maintenance. We're excited to deliver our solutions to the fast-growing Latin American market."
According to Gartner, a leading analyst research firm, Latin America is the fastest growing region in the world for business intelligence software. In 2011, Gartner cited the region's market for business intelligence platforms was $287M, demonstrating a 35% growth over 2010.
