OSS Market Leaders Jaspersoft and Talend Expand Best-of-Breed, End-to-End BI Offering

Talend Steps Up Data Integration OEM Partnership with Jaspersoft

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — March 29, 2011 — Jaspersoft, maker of the world’s most widely deployed business intelligence (BI) software, today announced that Talend, the global leader in open source integration software, deepened its partnership with the company and expanded its OEM deal. Jaspersoft serves as Talend’s exclusive open source business intelligence OEM and now offers full support for the Talend Integration Suite Professional product and services. Under the expanded deal, both companies increased their financial commitment to create new, industry-leading BI and data integration solutions for the enterprise.

“We see Jaspersoft leading the open source business intelligence revolution and are pleased to be bringing our high-performance, affordable ETL solutions to market through their organization,” said Thomas Tuchscherer, Vice President of Corporate Development at Talend.

Jaspersoft offers the most flexible and cost-effective BI suite in the world enabling better decision making through highly interactive, web-based reports, dashboards and analysis. Likewise, Talend produces the most powerful open source data integration tools for extracting, transforming and loading business critical data. Talend and Jaspersoft were both recently named top open source vendors with the most momentum in the recently published Momentum Index poll. Both vendors are also the only pure-play OSS players to be positioned on Gartner’s business intelligence and data integration Magic Quadrants respectively.

Though this partnership, Jaspersoft and Talend customers now gain access to the leading technologies in BI and data integration, enabling them to tackle today’s exponential growth in data and the increasing number of data sources companies can analyze. Additionally, customers benefit from the significant cost-savings of the open source model through this OEM offering, spending up to 80 percent less compared to custom-built or legacy, proprietary offers.

"We're seeing more and more organizations choosing BI tools based on the responsiveness and flexibility of the solution,” said John Keese, President at Autonomic Resources.  With Jaspersoft and Talend extending their partnership, it allows customers to get the best of both worlds: a powerful best-in-class BI and data integration suite powered by two OSS leaders, supported through a single vendor.  This new partnership commitment gives a company like us, a professional BI solution provider, the ability to solve a broader and more complex set of challenges for customers."

Jose Morales, Vice President of Business Development at Jaspersoft said, “As Jaspersoft and Talend align themselves further, customers can expect solutions with enhanced performance and scalability. Jaspersoft’s strategy has always been to focus on what we do best and partner with leading companies who excel in other areas of expertise. Jaspersoft and Talend embody affordable, accessible and comprehensive BI and data integration, and we’re excited to deliver this to our customers.”
