Be sure to ask about pricing. If I remember correctly the pricing is by processor core, which can get VERY expensive in a large organization with multiple locations. I would say Actuate would be best suited for a medium/large sized organization with 1000-2500 employees with a dedicated team of software developers. If the organization needs someone who can get up and running quickly developing reports and where it is not the primary responsibility then I would recommend an alternative product like Crystal Reports.

Any scenario where you need to reach back into TIBCO support is something I would highly avoid. Most responses at the second round get you pointed to engaging their professional services. The general mentality seems to be "since our product acquisition cost is low, why don't you engage PS to get the value you need" If you are looking at enterprise scenarios, I would highly recommend looking at other more established products.

Pros

  • We integrate page level security allowing a single report to service audiences of 20,000+ consumers but only deliveing the data in the vast data set applicable to the consumer.
  • Publish common components allowing the development staff to deliver consistent look and feel based on the standard firm style guide.
  • Reusable library objects allow for fast deployment of new application reports.

Cons

  • Report rendering can take a long time for large reports (250,000+ pages) - we run these in batch over night
  • The deployment of production code from development to test to production enviroments can be complex due to the number of components that must compile
No photo available
  • Inconsistent Errors - Crash dump errors annoys end users while not giving an clue of the actual reason of the failure. Everything has to be manually dealt by admins who need to tediously investigating through the error logs and investigating the crash dump errors or need to enable auditing which will tax the overall system.
  • Stability , Performance issues - You can experience a lot of Performance issues with the increase of complexity in programming SQL queries but there are majority of performance bottle necks with in the product architecture on the supportability.
  • Scaling - There are lot of hiccup's while scaling the product to huge set of audiences on a large scale mainly due to vagueness on the documentation and test results provided from Jasper support team. Need to invest a lot of internal perf testing before rolling this to large scale users for any reporting needs.
  • Data source connectivity issues - You can face multiple connectivity errors across firewall, windows firewall, 3rd party driver issues mainly due to lack of in-house integration of the product. As the entire product is designed in Java and Java has a lot of issues in supporting MS platforms.
  • Shortsightedness in Roadmap - Lack of Dynamism in product features - Product Managers at Jasper team dont offer much of the dynamic features offered from Tableau, SSRS, Cognos ex: optional/ forced parameters not available in legacy versions - available only in the recent versions. Also restricting schema to end user has to be dealt at the database level by the DBA teams, this feature available of restricting schema is not available from Jasper team.
  • Jasper studio still needs to be scaled up to a lot of extent compared to MS- BIDS - Visual studio, Cognos - Report Studio - especially in terms of supporting multi dataset based queries in a single band of the report, parameters support with multiple datatypes.
  • Support model not matching business model of customers - Any complex issue on legacy versions becomes a lot more challenge in dealing with Jasper team as they force you to upgrade with out understanding the dependencies on production environments. Getting a hotfix becomes lot more challenging. The front line of engineers do a basic troubleshooting with out understanding the actual problem, passing through several levels becomes exhausting before the actual engineer shows up who can fix the issue.
  • Integration with 3rd party authentications - You can face a lot of challenges with authentication with 3rd party clients as there is no clear cut documentation, steps available from the Jaspersoft

There are some very complex performance reports, which can not be handled in other tools. If we want to create our own framework in any reporting tool then Actuate is the best choice

Even though there are challenges with Architecture, sizing and other areas with Jaspersoft provided that Jaspersoft comes up with the right set of innovation, performance, scalability, and documentation in future it will be great expansion (win-win) situation for the clients and as well as Jaspersoft.

There is a still left out feature - Dashboards which still needs to be finetuned from the Jaspersoft engineering team. Sometimes you can see the reports hanging up on certain scenarios.

While the training was somewhat beneficial, a lot of what was taught to us was what we managed to figure out in the weeks prior. It did provide some useful tips and reference material, but overall something more tailored to our requirements would've been better.

-> Have the system thoroughly tested with production data being restored in a dummy environment before delivering to end users.
-> Don't rely on domains/dataset feature a lot especially while giving access to end users and this should be restricted to admins alone.

Breadth of Deployment

Actuate is used extensively as a developemnt tool and by 10s of thousands of end users. Virtually every line of business in our large financial institution uses Actuate - many who are unaware because the components are built into our home grown applications.

Of course, there are challenges in the evolution of Jasper and it may take some time to become a stable product. With Jasper 6.4 the stability is improvised a lot compared to previous versions(5.5).

But I would recommend Jasper to any team for the following reasons.
1. Simplicity of design (Any basic excel user can figure out the steps). (Compared to SSRS, Cognos).
2. Ease of scheduling (love the feature of "run immediately", "Schedule in the background"). (Compared to SSRS, Cognos).
3. Can think of going to establishing a monitoring reports for any production unit where the changes in data happen more frequently.

Return on Investment

  • Actuate can handle 50 to 60 sub reports inside a report very well.
  • Dynamically creating the datasource, chart, graph, reports are the main advantages. We can do any level of drilling, and can create a performance matrix dashboard efficiently.

  • Jaspersoft Community Edition has not had any significant impact on our ROI as we have purchased the commercial edition of the product.
  • The only impact on ROI is that when we bring on new developers, he or she can begin work using the community edition while awaiting the installation of the commercial edition.
