Jaspersoft 4.1 – Analyze Any Data Source with New Unified Analysis Interface

Provides business users with a quick and easy interface for performing data analysis against multi-dimensional, big data and relational data sources

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – May 25, 2011 – Jaspersoft, maker of the world's most widely used business intelligence (BI) software, today announced enhancements to the Jaspersoft 4 BI Suite, including new data analysis functionality and native 64-bit support.

Jaspersoft 4.1 introduces a unique, unified analysis environment that allows users to explore data from OLAP, relational and big data sources. Unlike traditional BI solutions, which require users to launch different products for reporting and analysis against different data sources, Jaspersoft 4.1 enhances self-service for business users by providing this capability within a single, simple web-based user interface (UI).

Built on the user interface framework of the Jaspersoft 4 BI Suite, Jaspersoft 4.1 also enables BI Builders – the developers, IT professionals and consultants tasked with creating customized, web-based reports and analysis – to easily embed, extend or customize this self-service BI capability.

Jaspersoft 4.1 also gives organizations additional performance and scalability with new native 64-bit installer support. BI Builders can now run and support their analysis environment with high-performing machine resources for demanding BI deployments.

“Jaspersoft 4.1 is the beginning of a series of Jaspersoft releases that will best enable the BI Builder to deliver affordable, self-service BI that supports existing and emerging data environments,” said Karl Van den Bergh, Vice President of Product Strategy at Jaspersoft. “Jaspersoft is leveraging its strength in reporting and dashboarding to simply introduce more analytic capability against any data source that can be easily deployed by BI Builders and consumed by business users. We’re uniquely suited to delivering this functionality thanks to our web standards architecture, our data agnostic connectivity, and our modern user interface.”

“Jaspersoft is making great progress beyond its core strength as a reporting and dashboard provider, delivering BI that is easier to connect and consume in a variety of data environments”, says Dave Simon, IT Director for Sierra Club. “At the Sierra Club, we rely on Jaspersoft's robust OLAP engine and interacti ve interface to provide our users with insight into the data that influences how we do our work. The update to Jaspersoft 4, including the simple to use drag and drop interaction in the analysis environment, will give our user community a boost in their ability to interact with our data.”
