Mar 31, 2010, 08:30 ET from Jaspersoft Corporation

SAN FRANCISCO and TROY, Mich., March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Syntel (Nasdaq: SYNT), a global information technology services and Knowledge Process Outsourcing (KPO) firm, and Jaspersoft, the world's most widely-used business intelligence (BI) software, today announced an agreement to jointly deliver high-performance data warehousing and business intelligence solutions.

This collaboration will enable even the most sophisticated Fortune 100 customers to leverage BI tools to gain greater insight into their operations and make better business decisions.

Syntel and Jaspersoft's partnership builds on the successful joint delivery of a BI project for one of the world's largest financial services firms. In addition to the Jaspersoft implementation, Syntel's Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence Center of Excellence delivered assessment, product and architecture selection, data modeling, enterprise data management, data mining and migration services.

"Today's companies can gain a real competitive advantage by leveraging their data assets and making them available to employees," said Syntel CEO and President Prashant Ranade. "Jaspersoft's BI Suite achieves this with simple, powerful reporting and analytics that offers a compelling mix of functionality and economy."

"Jaspersoft looks forward to expanding our relationship with Syntel as an implementation and integration partner," said Jose Morales, Vice President for business development at Jaspersoft. "Syntel has a strong track record of executing large-scale data warehousing projects for its customers and truly understands the specific challenges each industry faces with its data. By integrating Jaspersoft's BI Suite into its services mix, Syntel will offer a broader scope of enterprise-class functionality at a fraction of the cost of proprietary solutions on the market."

Syntel and Jaspersoft have initiated training and go-to-market activities to build on this initial success. For more information on business intelligence solutions, visit the Syntel and Jaspersoft websites.
