Jaspersoft, makers of the most widely used business intelligence (BI) software in the world, today announced that Gartner named Jaspersoft to its 2010 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence Platforms.
Inclusion in the 2010 Gartner Magic Quadrant was decided by Gartner analysts who evaluated Jaspersoft Enterprise Edition version 3.7.
“We believe inclusion in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for BI Platforms is a testament to the breadth and scope of our open source BI solutions,” said Brian Gentile, Jaspersoft CEO. “We are happy to receive recognition from such a respected analyst group. Expect Jaspersoft to continue producing award-winning, innovative technology.”
Since being named to the Gartner Magic Quadrant, Jaspersoft has revamped its award-winning suite with the release of Jaspersoft 4. This new suite version features a completely web-based architecture and a customizable GUI that makes embedding reports easier for BI builders – developers, IT or business managers tasked with creating customized analytics and reporting solutions to embed within web applications. Jaspersoft 4 also natively connects with Big Data systems such as Hadoop, NoSQL and MPP analytic databases, making it the first and only native reporting offering for any Big Data system.
Gartner's Magic Quadrant evaluates vendors on their completeness of vision and their ability to execute.
