Open Source BI available on Azure

Jaspersoft's business intelligence suite is now available on Windows Azure. It claims this is  the first open source BI offering to be introduced to that platform. Developers can embed Jaspersoft’s flexible, cost-effective BI offering inside applications and processes built on the Windows Azure platform.

“Jaspersoft's mission is to become the de facto reporting and analytic service for developers and IT in the Cloud,” said Karl Van den Bergh, vice president of product and alliances for Jaspersoft. “We have hundreds of organisations who are leveraging Jaspersoft in the Cloud today.”

“Microsoft is delighted to have Jaspersoft, a recognized leader in open source business intelligence, available on Windows Azure,” said Jean Paoli, president of Microsoft Open Technologies, Inc. “The open and flexible nature of Jaspersoft’s BI suite is an excellent open source option for Azure developers.”
