Jaspersoft Intelligence Inside Deck (who we are)

We live in a world that competes on time and information, yet a significant blocking factor is fast and easy access to this information. We spent $34B in 2012 on BI tools – making this the #1 priority for CIOs, yet only 25% of information workers are using BI software according to Gartner and other leading analysts. This sets the stage for a new paradigm in BI: improved timely access to information through The Intelligence Inside. In this informative session we'll explain The Intelligence Inside and what it means for applications and organizations. We'll further our discussion by describing the vision for Jaspersoft and how its software enables millions of people to make decisions every day with timely actionable data inside their applications and business processes.
