August 14, 2009 – Four proprietary and open source providers of business and infrastructure software this week announced the availability of a joint solution they say eliminates the necessity to integrate a variety of technologies to build a complete BI stack.
RightScale, Jaspersoft, Talend and Vertica are offering an integrated solutions stack that aims to increase agility by combining the power of the cloud, a high-performance analytical database, and BI and data integration software. The companies claim it’s the first solution of its kind to be released to market.
According to the announcement, this self-service, pay-as-you-go BI solution gives customers the agility to affordably build and use analytic sandboxes and disposable data marts, and gain intelligence on a wide range of data, including brief or seasonal projects.
Cloud computing introduces a new opportunity for customers who need the ability to rapidly deploy project-based BI, provision new applications on the fly and respond to major market changes. This announcement supports predictions that BI providers will partner with cloud companies for rapidly deployable, flexible solutions. 
"The work done by RightScale, Jaspersoft, Talend and Vertica demonstrates the power of collaboration among vendors to deliver integrated solutions," said Wayne Eckerson, Research Director at The Data Warehouse Institute, in a press release. "And by focusing their efforts on delivering BI on the cloud, customers now have tools to help them move quickly with BI projects."
Each of the four vendors has a specialized role in the components of the complete solution. RightScale offers an automated cloud management platform, Jaspersoft provides business intelligence software, Talend is a provider of open source data integration software, and Vertica creates analytic database management systems.
