This Week in Business Analytics: Oracle Takes on SAP with New Business Intelligence Application, and More

Last week we took a look at several business analytics related predictions from analysts from Forrester and Gartner. This year’s analytics product announcements are off to an interesting start, even if they’re not confirming those predictions yet. The main trend we see in the three announcements we’re covering this week is integration. Oracle is announcing a new module for integrating with SAP, RJMetrics is integrating with MongoDB and Jaspersoft is setting itself up for easier integrations.

Oracle Releases New Business Intelligence Application for SAP

Oracle released Oracle Financial Analytics for SAP this week, a module for its Oracle Business Intelligence Applications product. The module extends Oracle’s business and financial analysis tools to SAP. SAP, which lost a long court battle with Oracle last year, offers its own BI products NetWeaver Business Intelligence and BusinessObjects.

RJmetrics Adds MongoDB Support

Web-based BI vendor RJMetrics (see our previous coverage here) announced support for MongoDB this week. RJMetrics can now integrate directly with a customers’ MongoDB backend to analyze data stored there.

Jaspersoft Re-Architects its BI Solution

The open core BI vendor Jaspersoft released its completely re-architected product this week. Jaspersoft is now built entirely with standard Web technologies: JSP, JavaScript and HTML/CSS. This means three things for customers: 1) It will easier for you to customize your Jaspersoft deployment 2) It can easily be integrated with other Web technologies (see our report on web-oriented architecture) 3) Jaspersoft can be easily deployed anywhere: locally, in a private or public cloud environment or as a SaaS.
