Would your ears perk up if you heard there was a BI/analytics company that claims to deliver three-quarters of the functionality of traditional BI solutions at 20 percent or less of the cost?
What if you also learned that its product is fully cloud-based and can be embedded in Web and mobile apps? Or that its CEO promises to help you deliver BI beyond power users to virtually every employee, helping you foster a data-driven culture?
If all that sounds intriguing, meet Brian Gentile, chief executive of San Francisco-based Jaspersoft. In this installment of the IDG Enterprise CEO Interview Series, Gentile spoke with John Gallant, chief content officer with IDG Enterprise, and InfoWorld Editor in Chief Eric Knorr about how Jaspersoft aims to shake up the BI market and how big data will shake up everything. Gentile also discussed the embeddable analytics market and why some big-name customers are walling off the old-line BI solutions and firing up Jaspersoft instead.
