Jaspersoft vs Pentaho in our news:

2015. Hitachi buys business intelligence provider Pentaho



Hitachi wants to add big data analytics capabilities to its portfolio by acquiring BI vendor Pentaho. Pentaho is best known for its big data platform that simplifies preparing and blending all types of data and includes a spectrum of tools that enable users to easily analyze, visualize, explore, report insights and predict outcomes. Though Pentaho is expected to operate as a somewhat independent entity and to continue serving its large customer base, it will also leverage Hitachi’s deep pockets and resources to accelerate our big data analytics and data orchestration capabilities, bring new innovations to market, and expand support for current and future customers.


2014. Tibco to update its Business Intelligence software



In September middleware analytics provider TIBCO announced that it will be acquired by a private equity firm Vista Equity Partners, and it was the largest tech buyout this year. But Tibco isn't just waiting for this takeover to close. At its annual Tibco Now conference Tibco freshened its vision for business analytics with plans for updates for Spotfire and Jaspersoft (which TIBCO acquired in April this year). It also announced a new product called Engagement Flows designed to give marketers the ability to send personalized offers based on recent customer activity, inventory, historical interactions and data from third-party sources. The new products build on a new version of its Fast Data platform, which Tibco said would enable its customers to interpret and act on data in any location — on-premises, in the cloud or coming from the Internet of Things (IoT).
