Nucleus Research: Jaspersoft and AWS Disrupt Business Analytics

Independent report shows utility-based pricing has potential to reduce analytics software cost by two-thirds

San Francisco & London – April 8, 2014 - Jaspersoft, the Intelligence Inside applications and business processes, today announced the release of a Nucleus Research report validating how the utility-priced business analytics offered by Jaspersoft on Amazon Web Services (AWS) is disrupting the business analytics market.

According to the report – Amazon Web Services and Jaspersoft – A New Way of Looking at BI in the Cloud – companies moving from an on-premises SQL Server-based analytics environment could reduce ongoing software costs by 60 to 70 percent with the hourly utility-based pricing option of Jaspersoft through AWS Marketplace. In addition to reduced costs, the report found that early adopters of the Jaspersoft offering on AWS were able to accelerate time to value for pilot projects, proof of concepts and Enterprise production analytics operations.

“In analyzing the experiences of the Jaspersoft customers running on AWS and using
Amazon Redshift, Nucleus found a number of key benefits including increased
productivity, faster time to value, reduced risk, and lower cost," said Nina Sandy, Principal Analyst for Nucleus Research.

The report also found that customers of both Amazon Redshift and Jaspersoft saw more prevalent savings due to the pay-by-the-hour option. Jaspersoft offers its business intelligence server on AWS Marketplace starting at $0.48 per hour. Currently with 800 customers utilizing the offering in just nine months, the cloud-based offering also showed a shorter development time and lower cost of investment providing significantly reduced risk.
"We believe embedded intelligence represents the future of the BI market by bringing insight to users inside the applications where they spend their day,” said Karl Van den Bergh, Senior VP Customer Success & Product at Jaspersoft. “Thanks to the low cost and simplicity of the cloud, embedded analytics capabilities are available to a much broader population of developers.”

What customers said:
Reduced cost
“Costs were definitely a concern for us. Amazon Redshift and Jaspersoft have saved us a significant amount of money versus other solutions. Pay as you go was the key value for us.”

Reduced risk
“I can stop any time. I am not locked in. This is not a career risk because I can easily back out. There is no contract. Pay per hour – with no upfront costs, and the ability to turn it off when we decide to without any financial burden was a major factor in this decision.”

Accelerated time to value
“We have a really small team. We don’t have to mess around with hardware, servers and software, but still get all the features and capabilities we need. We don’t need a huge team to maintain a large data environment.”
