Leading cloud and BI vendors offer first end-to-end solution for agile analytics on the cloud
CloudWorld Expo, August 12, 2009 — Leading providers of business and infrastructure software today announced the availability of a joint solution stack that delivers complete Business Intelligence (BI) on the cloud.
RightScale, Jaspersoft, Talend and Vertica today are unveiling an integrated solutions stack that will enable customers to increase agility and lower costs by combining the power of the cloud, a high-performance analytical database, and BI and data integration software.
With the push of a button, users can now easily implement sophisticated BI on the RightScale Cloud Management Platform. Instead of using precious time on the task of integrating a variety of technologies to build a complete BI stack, the solutions from Jaspersoft, Talend and Vertica can be automatically configured. This self-service, pay-as-you-go BI solution gives customers the agility to affordably build and use analytic sandboxes and disposable data marts as well as gain intelligence on a wide range of data, including brief or seasonal projects.

“The beauty of the cloud BI stack is its low cost barrier without having to sacrifice performance or functionality. No huge investments in hardware, staff and other resources are required to get a scalable, end-to-end enterprise BI solution delivering results on the first day of business,” said Peter Relan, Executive Chairman and Co-Founder of Sibblingz and CrowdStar.
The stack is being demonstrated this week at CloudWorld Expo in booth #317 (RightScale), booth #318 (Jaspersoft/Talend) and booth #319 (Vertica). In addition, Jaspersoft CEO Brian Gentile and RightScale CEO and Founder Michael Crandell will share more details about the stack during a 30-minute session at the Expo on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 at 1:15 p.m. PT in room #3007 at Moscone West.
Cloud computing introduces a new opportunity for customers who need the ability to rapidly deploy project-based BI, provision new applications on the fly and respond to major market changes. As recently discussed in a webinar hosted by TDWI Research Director Wayne Eckerson, agile analytics can be a reality for any organization when BI is readily accessible on the cloud.
“The work done by RightScale, Jaspersoft, Talend and Vertica demonstrates the power of collaboration among vendors to deliver integrated solutions,” said Wayne Eckerson, Research Director at The Data Warehouse Institute. “And by focusing their efforts on delivering BI on the cloud, customers now have tools to help them move quickly with BI projects.”
A free webinar that details the new solutions stack and shares use cases will be hosted Tuesday, August 25, 2009 at 11 a.m. PT. To register, please visit: http://www.rightscale.com/lp/webinar/.
