Jaspersoft hires global partner head as BI channel expands

Paul Kochanski joins BI specialist Jaspersoft from Talend to seek out further growth opportunities.

Business process and app intelligence software specialist Jaspersoft is expanding its partner organisation with new hires as it targets renewed worldwide growth in 2014.

Having just signed Indian outsourcing giant Wipro as a new partner, the firm is keen to foster increased partner generation revenue and is targeting EMEA – along with North America and APAC – as key investment priorities this year.

To this end it has now hired former Talend man Paul Kochanski as senior director of global channel strategy with a brief to manage channel growth around its BI solutions.

In Europe, this strategy includes a number of new partner signings such as Column Technologies in the UK, along with a number of German and French system integrators.

“Our continued commitment to partners and continued investment in our partner channel has become a key growth driver,” said Jaspersoft SVP of worldwide field operations, Clive Harrison.

“Our embedded technology works within a user’s preferred application, making our customers and partners the true face of what is possible with our solution.”
