Apache Spark

Apache Spark has rich APIs for regular data transformations or for ML workloads or for graph workloads, whereas other systems may not such a wide range of support. Choose it when you need to perform data transformations for big data as offline jobs, whereas use MongoDB-like distributed database systems for more realtime queries.

Well suited for formatting needs and specific export types.
Great for creating static scheduled reports because they are easily editable by non-developers.
Less suited for non-developer level users if looking for an ad hoc tool as I believe they still need to do more work in making the ease-of-use of their ad hoc tool so that it is more accessible to entry-level users to reporting software.

Pros

  • Ease of use, the Spark API allows for minimal boilerplate and can be written in a variety of languages including Python, Scala, and Java.
  • Performance, for most applications we have found that jobs are more performant running via Spark than other distributed processing technologies like Map-Reduce, Hive, and Pig.
  • Flexibility, the frameworks comes with support for streaming, batch processing, sql queries, machine learning, etc. It can be used in a variety of applications without needing to integrate a lot of other distributed processing technologies.

  • Modern looking reporting - (many other products are still archaic looking in their default selections)
  • Quick time-to-market turn-around from concept to reality when creating a report
  • Listens to customer feedback for future features - this, I believe, has greatly shaped some of the upgrade features we have seen of late that have brought the level of usefulness up for Jaspersoft and ease of use for non-developer users
  • Full customization of reports with scheduling and many different formats available (I mention this because some other products had limited export format options)

Cons

  • could do a better job for analytics dashboards to provide insights on a data stream and hence not have to rely on data visualization tools along with spark
  • also there is room for improvement in the area of data discovery

  • I would like to see an administrator dashboard in the report server tool to monitor report generations, report failures, currently running reports with ability to kill long running reports, etc.
  • GUI access to the many, many settings that can be added/tweaked on the report server.
  • I would like to see easier access to add functions within the report without writing an external jar file. we don't use java on a day to day basis so I found the process of adding a custom library of functions a little awkward. We also allow our users to make copies of our reports to customize on their own. Since they are non-technical, the process of writing a function for themselves is usually over their heads.
  • Our customers are very much missing the ability to select specific fields from a print-ready report display and export to Excel. Our previous product had it and we hear it from everyone as we replace it. Current export of a print-formatted report to Excel tries to render it so it looks visibly the same, but it just ends up unusable for any sort of normal spreadsheet usage.

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.

Never have we had a performance issue with it. The "slow" reports are due to the speed of the data being returned from the database, not Jasper.

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.

Super easy to install and/or upgrade! For all the big name software out there that does some business critical things, Jasper is a pleasure to install and/or upgrade. The bundled installer is all ONE install (one shell script execution at least) that sets up everything. Vastly superior to most other software of this caliber.

Alternatives Considered

I prefer Apache Spark compared to Hadoop, since in my experience Spark has more usability and comes equipped with simple APIs for Scala, Python, Java and Spark SQL, as well as provides feedback in REPL format on the commands. At the same time, Apache Spark seems to have the best performance in the processing of large data that works in memory and, therefore, more processes can be downloaded on Spark than on Hadoop, despite the fact that Hadoop is also a very useful tool.

Facility in Data integration was one of the main reasons to choose TIBCO Jaspersoft. Besides the multi-dimension in analytics.

We've have a few hundred scheduled reports, and about 60-ish concurrent users. We've never had a performance issue with this software.

Return on Investment

  • We were able to make batch job faster by 20 times as compared to MapReduce
  • With the language support like Scala, Java, and Python, easily manageable

  • 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.
