Jaspersoft hasy released a software set that supports a wide variety of big data sources for business intelligence (BI) reporting. A mentioned in this PR Newswire release, with the release of over a dozen Big Data connectors as part of its open source "Big Data Reporting" project, as well as beta connectors for selected Big Data proprietary databases, Jaspersoft becomes the first business intelligence vendor to deliver native reporting for Hadoop, NoSQL and MPP analytic databases.
"This broad Big Data support further emphasizes Jaspersoft's architectural flexibility and its advantage over other BI vendors. This flexibility includes the ability to be easily embedded or customized and to be deployed on-premises or in a multi-tenant deployment. All these capabilities serve as the perfect foundation for native reporting within any PaaS cloud or hosted integrated development environment (IDE).
"Big Data systems are generally recognized as those that provide massive scale out capabilities for large data volumes in the multiple terabyte and petabyte range, and are too expensive and unwieldy to manage with traditional systems. There has been a growth in the interest in leveraging this scale of data for BI, but current BI solutions do not offer native connectivity and querying for many of these sources. This makes BI access impractical as customers want to be able to use the native syntax and query language of the big data system directly rather than have to do a data dump into a separate relational system to do their reporting."
