Open source business intelligence architecture strengthened with new analysis product and enhanced server capabilities

SAN FRANCISCO —June 28, 2006—JasperSoft Corporation, the leader in open source business intelligence, today announced the general availability of JasperIntelligence 1.0. New in JasperIntelligence, JasperAnalysis brings people in small and mid-size organizations open source Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) capability, enabling easy to use analysis of data. With this release of JasperIntelligence, JasperSoft is announcing major new versions of the full line of JasperSoft open source products, including JasperReports, iReport, JasperServer, and JasperAnalysis.

JasperAnalysis, new in JasperIntelligence 1.0, gives users the ability to analyze large datasets in real-time. With an easy-to-use graphical interface, business users can easily organize information along different axes to identify trends, anomalies, and correlations within the data. For example, sales information for a multi-location component manufacturer can be organized by year, product, and region to find out what components to order for different sites. Advanced reports can be easily created in JasperIntelligence and viewed as HTML, PDF, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word documents, or other output formats.

“When we announced the JasperIntelligence architecture in April, we promised to bring BI to everyone. Thanks to the speed and efficiencies of open source development, we have reached a major milestone toward that goal with the launch of JasperIntelligence 1.0,” said Paul Doscher, CEO of JasperSoft.
JasperAnalysis is designed to make BI accessible to all employees in an organization. Accountants, executives, and operational managers can now easily access BI analysis tools that were previously available only to upper management. Unlike traditional BI analysis products, JasperAnalysis can be seamlessly integrated into new and existing applications.

Additional JasperAnalysis features include:

· Dynamic drill, pivot, filter, and charting;
· Easy-to-use web interface for end-users;
· High-performance relational OLAP engine;
· Maps onto existing relational data sources without requiring data movement; and
· MDX and XML/A compliant.

JasperServer has also been updated in the new version of JasperIntelligence. New JasperServer features include:

· New object-level security in JasperServer that provides fine-grained access control on a per- report and object basis;
· More complete web services API;
· Scheduling;
· Report distribution.

A new release of JasperReports and iReport is also now available. The latest release includes a plug-in for JasperServer and usability improvements.

“JasperSoft is fully committed to the open source community behind iReport, JasperAnalysis, JasperReports, and JasperServer,” said Doscher. “We’re continuously working with the open source community on feature enhancements and quality improvements to make the best open source BI products available to everyone.”

Led by the popularity of JasperReports, JasperIntelligence popularity has grown to more than 1 million downloads, 10,000 deployments, and 3,000 paying customers.
