SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 16, 2010 -- Jaspersoft, provider of the world's most widely used business intelligence (BI) software, today announced several enhancements to its open source community site, JasperForge.org. The company has added new services to JasperForge.org including out-of-the-box reporting features, which will provide its developer community - now over 180,000 developers strong - the greatest possible functionality for developing BI projects with the Jaspersoft BI suite. In addition, Jaspersoft has integrated Drupal, the world-leading content management system, to give JasperForge.org a more flexible and efficient web content environment.
"As a leader in open source business intelligence, Jaspersoft is committed to arming our user community, people evolving and deploying business intelligence around the world, with the best possible developer tools," said Mike Moody, Jaspersoft Senior Vice President of Engineering. "We encourage constant innovation and the continued evolution of our products, so new features on JasperForge.org will give our users a richer experience and environment to work with our products and each other."
New JasperForge.org features are designed to improve the productivity and management of BI projects:
o Upgraded monitoring and tracking of total visitors to a project page
o New project download monitoring
o 40+ canned reports to improve measurement of key site metrics
o Mercurial support for a de-centralized, high performance version control system
o Advanced search features to enable faster, more granular results
"I'm extremely pleased to see Jaspersoft broaden JasperForge.org with a number of features that will increase productivity and ease of use," said Giulio Toffoli, Jaspersoft co-founder and JasperForge.org member. "These are big benefits to community users, especially those who rely on low-cost, open source BI. The ongoing improvements to the forge tools re-enforces why Jaspersoft's user community continues to thrive and grow."
