SAN FRANCISCO, February 23, 2010 - Jaspersoft, creator of the world’s most widely used business intelligence software, today reported significant momentum behind its open source software community, demonstrating strong growth and accelerated adoption of Jaspersoft products.
Jaspersoft’s open source community recently surpassed 10 million software downloads, contributions to 350 open source projects and nearly 120,000 registered community members. Jaspersoft’s community includes members in more than 150 countries around the world, with top ten membership coming from Argentina, Brazil, China, Colombia, Germany, India, Italy, Mexico, Thailand and the United States. Comparatively, in the last year, the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany and France ranked among the top five countries with the highest commercial adoption of Jaspersoft products.
In total, Jaspersoft and its members have contributed nearly a quarter of a million lines of code to each of its core projects in JasperReports, iReport, JasperServer and JasperAnalysis. The world’s most popular BI reporting tool in JasperReports and iReport, along with the server-based projects in JasperServer/JasperAnalysis are freely downloadable open source projects, licensed under the terms of the LGPL or GPL. Ohloh.net estimates Jaspersoft and its members have contributed nearly nine million dollars in full-time equivalent engineering investment to these projects.
“Jaspersoft’s development community is incredibly global, committed to innovation and growing at a remarkable rate in every corner of the world,” said Brian Gentile, CEO of Jaspersoft. “Our community has made innovative BI solutions affordable and available to a broad range of organizations and companies that never would have considered BI before, from a variety of basic reporting to sophisticated analysis and data warehousing applications. We’re thrilled to collaborate with this community to provide the tools for them to do so.”
After six years of rapid expansion, the Jaspersoft community has been behind some of the most innovative deployments of any business intelligence platform available, open source or proprietary. Customers who deployed the community editions of JasperReports and JasperServer have been able to address sophisticated business challenges that require integrating BI across several business functions, including BPM, ERP, CRM and more. Following are some of the more interesting recent community customer examples.
In fact, we were even able to deploy new reports while our servers were up and running. At my previous company, we had used JasperServer Professional for generating several dynamic drag and drop reports, scheduling reports and supporting our SaaS environment. We used it for generating reports for our CRM clients on several modules like Pipeline, Sales, Accounts and more. True to its claim, Jaspersoft’s BI Suite is the world's most widely used BI software. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the JasperForge forum admins and every member of your company for their quick responses.” – Rama Mukkamalla, Software Engineer, Spiral Universe, United States
