Mainframe Data Made Easier to Access, Integrate and Analyze

Cincom and JasperSoft Announce Business Intelligence Software Partnership

CINCINNATI, OH--(Marketwire - June 5, 2007) - Cincom Systems and JasperSoft have formed a worldwide partnership to deliver Business Intelligence (BI) and reporting software to ease a widespread critical technology problem -- cost-effective mainframe data access, integration and analysis.

Cincom joined JasperSoft's open-source BI community on JasperForge.org to increase the value of BI and reporting solutions for Cincom customers, with a special focus on mainframe data access and integration.

Mainframe Data Made Easier to Access, Integrate and Analyze

The first product offering provides a complete solution for mainframe SUPRA databases. Business Intelligence for SUPRA provides relational access, warehousing, multidimensional analysis and reporting of SUPRA data.

JasperSoft offers the most widely used, open-source BI software in the world, with more than 5,000 commercial customers in 81 countries.

Cincom picked JasperSoft after evaluating all open-source reporting solutions.

"It was an easy decision. They have a great reputation, strong customer base and are wonderful to work with," said Jeff Gunderson, engineering manager for database products at Cincom. "Combine that with the collaborative product development environment and the strong open-source community cooperation at JasperSoft, and it was a win for everyone involved -- especially businesses trying to extend and leverage their mainframe investments but are struggling to easily access and analyze the mainframe data."

"We're pleased to partner with Cincom, and to have been selected to deliver BI on top of an already superior product line," said Ian Fyfe, Director of Product Management for JasperSoft.
