Paris, France, 2008/09/25 - Jaspersoft Corporation, the market leader in open source business intelligence (BI), today announced a new and streamlined version of JasperETL™ that is specifically optimised for business intelligence customers.
Jaspersoft and Talend, the leader in open source data integration, have extended their partnership agreement by developing an entirely new version of the JasperETL solution, designed specifically to include the features most used by Jaspersoft’s BI customers. Powered by Talend's award winning open source data integration technology, this JasperETL package will combine the elements of Talend Integration Suite that are the most relevant for BI users, and will meet Jaspersoft customers’ requests for an ETL capability that delivers more power and flexibility in their BI deployments.
The new version of JasperETL will be offered exclusively from Jaspersoft and will be included in every paid subscription of the Jaspersoft BI suite.
“This extension of our partnership with Talend builds on the success of our original agreement almost two years ago, and demonstrates the power and flexibility of the open source model to deliver optimised solutions for specific markets,” said Brian Gentile, CEO of Jaspersoft. “We look forward to ongoing collaboration with Talend to meet customer needs across the globe.”
“One of the strengths of open source software is the partner network that exists to provide customers with customised packages that address their most fundamental requirements,” said Bertrand Diard, CEO and co-founder of Talend. “The work we do with Jaspersoft is a perfect example of how open source collaboration can reach every level of the customer experience.”
This move from Jaspersoft and Talend comes after nearly two years of a highly successful relationship where the companies cross-licensed their software in order to offer customers throughout the globe more choice and increased access to the best open source solutions.
“We reap the benefits of this expanded relationship between Jaspersoft and Talend,” said Ken Schwartz, chief information officer, ALAS. ALAS is a company specialising in the financial services sector. “By embedding JasperETL into our financial services control platform, we get a fast and effective view of our data, as well as significant savings in our ETL deployment.”
Jaspersoft today is also announcing a variety of significant European milestones, including a new office in Paris and the availability of Jaspersoft v3 in French, German and Spanish.
Talend is the first provider of open source data integration software. After three years of intense research and development and with solid financial backing from leading investment firms, Talend revolutionised the world of data integration when it released the first version of Talend Open Studio in 2006. Talend's solutions are used primarily for migration and integration between operational systems, as well as for ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) for Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing, and for data quality management. Unlike proprietary, closed solutions that only the largest organisations can afford, Talend makes enterprise-class data integration solutions affordable to organisations of all sizes.
