Jaspersoft Shows Momentum in Hadoop Analytics and Partner Ecosystem

Jaspersoft survey reveals emerging trends with 77% to deploy Hadoop Analytics within 6 months, announces Hadoop Partner Ecosystem build out

SAN FRANCISCO – September 18, 2012 – Jaspersoft, the world’s most widely used business intelligence (BI) platform, today announced its Hadoop Partner Ecosystem. In addition to working with IBM, which was previously announced, Jaspersoft is also partnering with Cloudera and HortonWorks to combine its BI suite with their Hadoop distributions, as well as integrating with Informatica’s HParser, and Talend’s Open Studio for Big Data, giving companies more reporting options to meet their Hadoop Analytics needs.

Jaspersoft’s Hadoop partners said:

  • "Our business users all want powerful, simple reporting tools for the data they store in Apache Hadoop. Connecting the Jaspersoft reporting engine directly to Hadoop makes it easy for analysts to use both their source data and the results of their analytics jobs." —Mike Olson, CEO of Cloudera
  • "Jaspersoft's industry-leading reporting, analysis, and dashboard products, together with the Hortonworks Data Platform, make it easy and cost-effective for customers to derive maximum insights and value from their largest data stores. We're delighted to partner with them to create additional value for customers." —Eric Baldeschwieler, CTO of Hortonworks

Jaspersoft also showed key findings from a recently completed survey on the early use of Hadoop in the enterprise. Over 600 Jaspersoft community members responded to the Big Data survey. Among those respondents using Hadoop to address Big Data in their organizations, 59% have either already deployed a Hadoop-based Big Data solution or are currently in development, and 77% of Hadoop users will have deployed Big Data solutions within the next six months. Other key Hadoop-related findings include:

  • Within enterprise use, 63% of Hadoop users are application developers, 15% are BI report developers and 10% are BI admins or casual business users;
  • Only 37% of Hadoop users work within software and Internet industries. Hadoop use remains diverse and can be found in a range of industries from financial services to education;
  • 57% are deploying Big Data with Hadoop on-premises, while 43% are deploying in the cloud;
  • The most popular Big Data store was Hadoop HDFS (82%), followed by HBase (34%) relational database (31%), MongoDB (30%), Hive (25%), and Cassandra (14%);
  • 38% require real-time or near real-time analytics for their Big Data with Hadoop.

“We’re delighted to see how expansive Hadoop-based solutions have become. The volume of Hadoop Big Data users is growing rapidly across the globe,” said Brian Gentile, CEO of Jaspersoft. “With the growing use of Hadoop-based Big Data systems, Jaspersoft has focused on building a strong partner ecosystem to help deliver more value to business and IT users in managing and processing large volumes of data in combination with reporting tools."

Jaspersoft provides the ideal complement for reporting and analysis of Hadoop-based Big Data systems through a full suite of ETL, Hive, and native HBase connectors for low-latency data exploration.
