History and Objectives
Jazz started as a research project on fast data processing servers led by Santiago Basaldúa at BBVA Data & Analytics that evolved into an analytical web server. In December 2017 the source code of the server and the R client was released under an Apache 2.0 license.
Jazz version 0.1.7 is the project released by BBVA, Jazz 0.2.x is the transition to a new architecture while keeping the server functionally equivalent to the original. The switch to the new architecture comes with Jazz 0.3.1, the first complete product that will be released for evaluation.
Special thanks to Roberto Maestre and Israel Herraiz who have been discussing the idea giving valuable feedback since the beginning, the members of the BBVA Software Engineering Core, especially Manuel Valdés and César de Pablo, for their feedback, the BBVA Data and Open Innovation Platforms team, especially Óscar Tomás and Ángel Puerto, for the hardware and their feedback, Jose Antonio Rodriguez who organized the initial presentation to the UI team, as well as BBVA labs for their feedback and help with the OSS release.
Jazz version 0.3.1 was released July 2018 completing the refactoring for the BBVA product to the Jazz server for years to come.
Jazz version 0.4.1 is the next major milestone, completing all MVP functionality, expected November 2018.
