Apache Spark

The software appears to run more efficiently than other big data tools, such as Hadoop. Given that, Apache Spark is well-suited for querying and trying to make sense of very, very large data sets. The software offers many advanced machine learning and econometrics tools, although these tools are used only partially because very large data sets require too much time when the data sets get too large. The software is not well-suited for projects that are not big data in size. The graphics and analytical output are subpar compared to other tools.

TIBCO Jaspersoft

TIBCO Jaspersoft is well suited for users who are not too technical. These users are able to easily drag and drop domain fields from their database to create friendly table reports. Users can easily add filters to their reports which allows for reusability. On the other hand, if a user is looking to add information that has many-to-many relationships, duplicates will appear. Having duplicates in an ad-hoc view and not being able to easily remove them is a big issue for many of our clients.

Pros

Apache Spark

  • Rich APIs for data transformation making for very each to transform and prepare data in a distributed environment without worrying about memory issues
  • Faster in execution times compare to Hadoop and PIG Latin
  • Easy SQL interface to the same data set for people who are comfortable to explore data in a declarative manner
  • Interoperability between SQL and Scala / Python style of munging data
Nitin Pasumarthy | TrustRadius Reviewer

TIBCO Jaspersoft

  • Jaspersoft has an excellent self-service module that allows ad hoc report creation and can be easily worked by non-technical users as well.
  • Using this tool, it doesn't matter if you are viewing the report on a desktop screen or smaller mobile screens, the experience is seamless.

Cons

Apache Spark

  • Memory management. Very weak on that.
  • PySpark not as robust as scala with spark.
  • spark master HA is needed. Not as HA as it should be.
  • Locality should not be a necessity, but does help improvement. But would prefer no locality
Anson Abraham | TrustRadius Reviewer

TIBCO Jaspersoft

  • The UI on the report designer, Jaspersoft Studio, looks a little outdated. I think that Studio as a whole could use a facelift. Additionally, Jaspersoft Studio tends to slow down over time, requiring a restart of the program.
  • There is a bit of a learning curve with all of the intricacies of Jaspersoft Studio, it's kind of overwhelming when trying to learn it from nothing.
  • One functionality that seems to be missing, that would help our use-case, would be the ability to parameterize a JSON URL as a data source. For example, if there was a call to a set of JSON data, it has to be a static URL. But in many cases, APIs that return JSON take parameters via the URL. Jaspersoft does not support that.

JasperSoft has been amazing. It is well documented, fast, and transparent in how it functions. We have been very confident in JasperSoft in every aspect of our business and offerings where we've used it. On top of that, their improvements to the product have been fantastic. I am really looking forward to seeing where they take their product and how we can leverage that to please our clients

Apache integrates with multiple big data frameworks. It does not exert too much load on the disks. Moreover, it is easy to program and use. It reduces the headache of using different applications separately through its high-level APIs. Big data processing has never been as easy as it is with Apache Spark.

I think it's a tool well suited for a software developer. Others with less coding skills could struggle somewhat with the tool. I find java a little unforgiving as a language for expressions and not very user friendly for the technically dis-inclined. Sometimes the numeric conversions cause issues (who knew that 0 and 0.0 would cause different things to happen). Previous experience with a reporting tool that used visual basic for its' expressions that I found much simpler to use. On the other hand, java is so widespread, you can easily google the syntax to accomplish what you need to do.

We've never had an outage of the software itself. If it was unavailable, it was due to a network outage, not a problem with Jasper.

1. It integrates very well with scala or python.2. It's very easy to understand SQL interoperability.3. Apache is way faster than the other competitive technologies.4. The support from the Apache community is very huge for Spark.5. Execution times are faster as compared to others.6. There are a large number of forums available for Apache Spark.7. The code availability for Apache Spark is simpler and easy to gain access to.8. Many organizations use Apache Spark, so many solutions are available for existing applications.

They have a great customer support ticketing system in which they always respond same-day. They offer conference calls with srcreensharing as well in order to better understand your issues.
I wish that the lower level support access came with more than just 12 cases per year though as this makes us less likely to reach out for questions on things that we then instead try to solve ourselves which results in loss of time in trying to acquire new features and or solve a problem.

It did the job of getting us to our deadline we set for ourselves for initial launch. The customer we launched the product for was also there to learn about it at the same in order to better understand the capabilities. This helped greatly so that the customer was on the same page on what was possible when using jaspersoft. I think most people would not want their customers aware the product they are using is third-party but in this case it was a new experience for us both and so as we learned more about jaspersoft, we both had better communication on what the future road map was for their business needs in BI.

Resources available in the TIBCO Knowledge Base are covering almost everything. They are well organized, and covering almost every possibility. There is always the change to get back to the TIBCO support or to the dedicated Customer Success Manager whenever something very specific or bound to a customization is not covered.

Having just completed an upgrade to the latest version of Jaspersoft, I am happy to say their support was very good. There were a couple of small challenges which were not easily resolved, but they were primarily related to the fact that we had skipped updates for a couple of versions. The current update procedures assumed we were upgrading from the prior latest version (6.4) to to the new version (7.1).

Alternatives Considered

Apache Spark

Spark in comparison to similar technologies ends up being a one stop shop. You can achieve so much with this one framework instead of having to stitch and weave multiple technologies from the Hadoop stack, all while getting incredibility performance, minimal boilerplate, and getting the ability to write your application in the language of your choosing.

TIBCO Jaspersoft

It's been a long time since we have been using Jasper, so I can't really remember the details, but mainly it was about comparing how easy it was to integrate with our Java-based product, reporting capability, and datasources/platform supported.

We haven't really started to explore the scalability of the product as yet, but in terms of existing deployments it has done what we need it to do.

Return on Investment

Apache Spark

  • It has had a very positive impact, as it helps reduce the data processing time and thus helps us achieve our goals much faster.
  • Being easy to use, it allows us to adapt to the tool much faster than with others, which in turn allows us to access various data sources such as Hadoop, Apache Mesos, Kubernetes, independently or in the cloud. This makes it very useful.
  • It was very easy for me to use Apache Spark and learn it since I come from a background of Java and SQL, and it shares those basic principles and uses a very similar logic.
Carla Borges | TrustRadius Reviewer

TIBCO Jaspersoft

  • When we demo our Jaspersoft environment to potential clients, their eyes light up and they sit up in their chairs a bit more. A lot of our meetings have ended with with the client very interested in our product due to Jaspersoft.
  • Our existing clients have been very satisfied with the adhoc features of Jaspersoft. We've been able to provide them better access to their data on their terms instead of ours. Of course this turns into a huge win for us.
  • We've always used SQL Server Reporting Services to deliver our reports to our clients. Converting to Jaspersoft has allowed us to generate the reporting layer that our clients demand. They no longer feel like they are settling for what we offer.
