Jaspersoft and ALaS Consulting Partnering to Serve Business Intelligence Clients in the Northeast

San Francisco, Calif. and New York, N.Y - 29 July 2008

ALaS will also OEM Jaspersoft for embedded business intelligence in its financial services products

To help provide onsite installation and integration services to its clients in the Northeastern United States, Jaspersoft, the market leader in open source business intelligence (BI), is partnering with ALaS (alascorp.com), a New York City-based consultancy specializing in the financial services sector whose clients include Washington Mutual, Morgan Stanley and Barclays Capital.

ALaS was selected because of its expertise in Jaspersoft’s business intelligence products and the extensive experience its professional engagement teams have in providing clients with system integration services for implementation, customization and deployment. The companies also announced that Alas is embedding Jaspersoft’s BI and ETL products into its financial services control platform for front, middle, and back-office. This integration will provide ALaS software users with a fast and effective window on their data, as well as reducing implementation costs from an ETL perspective.

“Our clients want consulting services to help them customize their Jaspersoft implementations and it is critical to have partners like ALaS to deliver them,” said Nick Halsey, Jaspersoft’s vice president of marketing. “Because ALaS has the skills from embedding our products into their own financial services solutions, they have a level of understanding and proficiency that is greater than most other integrators. It is also important that ALaS will be offering services for the entire Jaspersoft Business Intelligence Suite.”

“The partnership is a good fit because many of Jaspersoft’s customers in the Northeast are financial services companies, which are the main focus of our business,” said Wesley Archer, president and CEO of ALaS. “The experience we’ve gained implementing ALaS DocPort™ and ALaS CaPRI™ and our other proprietary applications for the world's largest financial services firms have prepared us well for this exciting opportunity.”
