Six Big Business Intelligence Mistakes

TIBCO Software shored up its footprints in both the business intelligence and data integration spaces this week with the acquisition of Jaspersoft.

As a company that made its reputation in the BI space with an open source application that was coupled with advanced data integration tools, Ivan Casanova, vice president of marketing for TIBCO Software, says Jaspersoft complements TIBCO’s existing data visualization and enterprise application integration framework.

In fact, today TIBCO bolstered the data visualization capabilities of its BI software with a new release of its Spotfire application. Version 6.5 of Spotfire makes it easier to manipulate large amounts of data within the context of a location-based analytics application.

Meanwhile, as part of an effort to make TIBCO Spotfire more appealing to individual users, TIBCO plans to make a desktop version of Spotfire available to single users under a $1,999 perpetual license starting in May.

Casanova says the end goal of the TIBCO BI strategy is to eliminate the need for IT organizations to look to separate vendors to get data visualization, BI applications and data integration software. Instead, TIBCO intends to offer all those capabilities via integrated applications that can be deployed on mobile computing devices, systems running on premise or in the cloud.

Naturally, TIBCO is not the only company trying to unify BI and analytics in a way that encompasses data visualization and data integration. But with the acquisition of Jaspersoft this week, TIBCO is clearly a lot further down that path than a fair number of other vendors that don’t directly control one or more of those key BI elements.
