SAN FRANCISCO and REDMOND, Wash., Nov. 8 /PRNewswire/ — JasperSoft Corporation, the market leader in open source business intelligence (BI), and Noetix(R) Corp., a software provider that automatically generates BI content from enterprise applications, today announced the general availability of Jasper4Oracle E-Business Suite, Powered by Noetix. The offering features the JasperSoft Business Intelligence Suite (JBIS) and NoetixViews(R), an extensive set of reporting objects (metadata), delivering business views of the underlying Oracle applications database, which together provide Oracle E-Business Suite customers with intuitive and affordable, web-based, ad hoc BI. The solution enables business users to 'drag & drop' familiar business terms for simplified self-service reporting and business intelligence.

"Jasper4Oracle E-Business Suite, Powered by Noetix, is the latest solution in our Jasper4 program, which delivers Business Intelligence tailored for packaged applications," said Jose Morales, VP of Business Development for JasperSoft "With Jasper4Oracle E-Business Suite, JasperSoft continues to deliver powerful, affordable and easy-to-use solutions that immediately address a company's most critical business needs."

The combination of the JasperSoft Business Intelligence Suite with NoetixViews delivers unparalleled insight into a customer's mission critical data. NoetixViews automatically discovers the customer-specific setups within the Oracle E-Business Suite, deciphers the maze of data relationships, and joins the proper tables together to create a set of database views. JBIS then dynamically reads the database views and delivers intuitive access to the end user. The result is a transformation of database complexity into recognizable business views of the data that can easily be used by non-technical employees to create custom operational and ad hoc reports with the JBIS.

The joint solution decreases staffing expense and total cost of ownership of BI for the Oracle E-Business Suite. JBIS is significantly more affordable than leading proprietary BI solutions, while providing a more modern, web-based architecture. NoetixViews minimizes the need for in-depth knowledge of the Oracle E-Business Suite data structure by providing fully documented views that solve specific business problems.

In addition, JasperSoft reports developed directly against Noetix-generated views of the Oracle E-Business Suite do not risk expensive rework when the applications are upgraded. NoetixViews protects reports from these database changes by automatically remapping the new or changed tables to the views to reflect these changes. This feature eliminates the need for expensive report maintenance and simplifies the report migration process.

"Noetix supports JasperSoft in their mission to drive powerful reporting and BI into the hands of more users," said Jeff Kirk, director of Strategic Alliances for Noetix. "This partnership solves the Oracle E-Business Suite customer requirement for an easy, simple to use web-based business intelligence tool."
