JasperSoft Launches Open-Source BI Package

JasperSoft Corp. has launched JasperIntelligence, the company's open-source business intelligence framework.

The BI platform, which left beta this week, comprises several products, all of which have been upgraded to coincide with the latest release. The products are JasperAnalysis, which provides online analytical processing for small and mid-size businesses; JasperReports, iReports and JasperServer.

JasperAnalysis, new to the framework, provides real-time analysis of large datasets, officials with the San Francisco company, said. The tool provides a graphical interface organizing information along different axes to identify trends, anomalies, and correlations within the data. Reports created in JasperIntelligence can be viewed in HTML, PDF, Microsoft Excel and Word, or other output formats.

Other features in JasperAnalysis include dynamic filtering and charting, an OLAP engine and the ability to map onto existing relational data sources without requiring data movement.

The JasperServer, which provides integration to data sources and other services, provides access control to a per-report and object basis, scheduling and report distribution. The upgrades of JasperReports and iReport include a plug-in to JasperServer.

Versions of JasperSoft's open-source products are available without charge. The company also sells commercial licenses that include support and services. The number of downloads of the JasperIntelligence platform has topped 1 million downloads, the company said, noting that it has recorded 10,000 deployments, and has 3,000 paying customers.
