JasperSoft Launches JasperETL
PARIS and SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 30 /- JasperSoft Corporation, the market leader in open source business intelligence, today announced the addition of JasperETL(TM), a robust Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) product, to the JasperSoft Business Intelligence Suite (JBIS). JasperETL adds significant data management capabilities to JBIS, which currently includes JasperServer, JasperAnalysis, JasperReports and iReport. JasperETL will be available in Open Source and Professional editions, and was developed through a technology partnership with Talend. Led by a team of veteran data integration industry experts, Talend is the first open source software provider for data integration tools.
The partnership demonstrates the power of cooperation among open source projects and JasperSoft's commitment to bringing the best open source BI products to small, medium, and large enterprises worldwide. JasperETL is targeted at the $13 billion global analytic and operational data integration market (Source: IDC Worldwide Data Integration Spending 2004 -2007 Forecast, January 2005) and helps integrate JasperSoft's open source solutions with the mixed proprietary and open source database environments of its customers.
"We developed the world's first open source ETL solution to democratize data integration and compete on par with costly proprietary offerings," said Bertrand Diard, CEO of Talend. "By partnering with JasperSoft, the clear market leader in open source BI, we ensure that open source data integration tools are accessible to enterprises of all sizes."
"JasperETL is the best, most feature-rich and high-performance open source ETL solution available," said Paul Doscher, CEO of JasperSoft.

We are pleased to be the charter member of the Powered By Talend(TM) program and look forward to working with Talend to extend and enhance their data management platform".
ETL is an essential tool that guarantees consistency and fluidity of information in increasingly diverse IT systems. At the center of the decision- making process, ETL allows organizations to move, cleanse, standardize and transform data according to their business needs. JasperETL can be used for both analytic decision support system tasks such as updating data warehouses or marts, as well as for operational solutions such as data consolidation, duplication, synchronization, quality, migration, and change data capture. Performance tests indicate performance up to 50% faster than other leading commercial ETL tools.
Key components and features of JasperETL include:
o Job Designer - provides a graphical editor and functional view of the ETL process;
o Transformation Mapper - provides a graphical editor and view of complex mappings and transformations;
o Real-time Debugging - allows tracking of ETL statistics and traces throughout the whole transformation process in real-time;
o Business Modeler - provides a non-technical graphical view of the business information workflow;
o Numerous Connectors (30+) - allows output and input from and to many different data sources including flat files, xml files, all databases, pop and FTP servers amongst others
o Wizards - metadata configuration wizards to help configure heterogeneous data sources and complex file formats including positional, delimited, CSV, RegExp, XML, and LDIF data.
Many organizations are already using both JasperSoft and Talend for their Business Intelligence solutions. "As the open source lead for the French tax department, I am charged with finding the best open source solutions for our organization. We use both JasperSoft and Talend products and find them to be a natural fit for our Business Intelligence projects," said Eric German of Direction Generale de la Comptabilite Publique. "JasperSoft delivers pixel- perfect, easily embeddable reporting, and we look forward to investigating their ad hoc reporting with JasperServer as well as their JasperAnalysis with OLAP capabilities. We've found Talend's friendly GUI and clear error messages indispensable for fast ETL development. We are delighted to see Talend and JasperSoft working together in this business partnership, and look forward to the results of their product integration."
