Press Release 21 Feb 2013

Jaspersoft, maker of the world’s most widely used business intelligence (BI) software, today announced that it is to continue its commitment to expansion in the European region, with more than 20 employees working in its Dublin office and over 95% of those being multi-lingual. With a total recurring software sales growth of over 50 percent for the past three years, Jaspersoft’s growth is strong across EMEA, Asia Pacific and Latin America as well as North America, where it also expanded its operations during the year. Sales outside North America now account for more than 32 percent of total sales globally and Jaspersoft continues to grow its staff base in these key regions.
 

Jaspersoft set up its Dublin office in 2007 and is continuing to show strong growth in Ireland with customers including Aepona, Corvil, Entando, Jinny Software and Openmind Networks among others, capitalizing on industry demand for business intelligence solutions around Big Data, embeddable BI, and data-driven applications.
 

Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton, said: “This expansion by Jaspersoft is very welcome, and adds to Ireland’s strong cluster of technology companies. This is a strong endorsement of Ireland’s strong offering in this field. I am determined to continue building on our strengths in this field through strong implementation of the Action Plan for Jobs, and I wish Jaspersoft every success with their operations here.’’
 

“We are delighted that we chose Dublin as our European headquarters as it means we can address our customers regionally and meet their BI needs quickly and at lower cost. Having a European HQ has contributed greatly to our growth as Ireland is the perfect gateway for us to serve customers right across Europe. Our experience with the Irish labour market has been phenomenal. Our clients have been very impressed with the calibre of those we have hired in Ireland, who are both multi-lingual and technically savvy”, said Bryan Drexler, Vice President, EMEA at Jaspersoft.
 

Welcoming the announcement, Barry O’Leary, CEO of IDA Ireland said, ‘The expansion of Jaspersoft in Dublin adds to the established reputation of Ireland as a global centre for technology companies and will enhance Ireland’s profile within the industry globally. The success and accelerated growth of the company’s Irish operations demonstrates Ireland’s ability to host international software companies and provide the highly skilled employees they require for rapid growth. ‘
