Jaspersoft, a maker of business intelligence (BI) software, has teamed with VMware to integrate Jaspersoft's BI Platform with the Cloud Foundry open platform-as-a-service (PaaS). Jaspersoft's BI for PaaS integrates with Cloud Foundry to provide reporting to enable data-driven, cloud-based application development.
Combining Jaspersoft BI with Cloud Foundry provides developers with a PaaS deployment method for enabling data-driven applications. This allows enterprises to deploy analytic applications to uncover patterns in their data, driving improved organizational performance while gaining better access to information for more informed decision-making.
With Cloud Foundry, VMware offers a PaaS solution built on open-source technologies. Jaspersoft will offer an open-source edition of its flagship Jaspersoft BI Suite, pre-configured for Cloud Foundry, which supports the ability to access relational databases like MySQL and Big Data services like MongoDB. Jaspersoft provides native access to the leading Big Data products, including MongoDB, for which it recently announced a BI connector.
"As VMware pairs with leading organizations to build out the Cloud Foundry ecosystem, we are pleased to work with Jaspersoft to integrate its business intelligence platform with Cloud Foundry," said Jerry Chen, vice president of cloud and application services at VMware, in a statement. "Adding Jaspersoft's robust BI to Cloud Foundry enables developers to have a powerful and flexible way to deploy and scale data-driven applications quickly, and glean insights from those applications, without restricting the use of infrastructure."
"Jaspersoft is thrilled to partner with VMware to build out business intelligence for PaaS," added Karl Van den Bergh, Jaspersoft's vice president of product and alliances, in the statement. "Cloud Foundry brings amazing flexibility to developers by allowing them access to many cloud technologies and infrastructures. As application development continues to shift to the cloud, we will see open PaaS BI further strengthen the development and deployment of data-driven applications."
