TIBCO Jaspersoft

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.

We use Tableau when we want to obtain a fast and efficient result, since this option allows to work with data in real time or in memory, being able to extract massive data for a limited exploration quickly, using technology of database and computational graphics to analyze enormous sets of data and which is used in the different areas of the organization when we want to have quick results and easy to analyze according to the graphics presented.

Pros

  • 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)
Ashley Lee profile photo
  • Geographic visualizations with demographic substrates.
  • Combining multiple visualizations into a single dashboard presentation.
  • Creating exploratory dashboards.
  • Storytelling.
  • Their ability to send presentations using a snapshot of the data is outstanding.

Cons

  • Jaspersoft Studio is a little "buggy" having to be closed and re-opened periodically throughout the day.
  • Multi-select queries return and load the entire query result set rather than allowing "lazy-loading" of records as a user scrolls. This results in slow loading report parameter screens as the lists are loaded.
  • It would be great to have source control (such as Version One or Git) better integrated into Jaspersoft.
  • Version 6.4.3.final of Jaspersoft Studio has some bugs where some button on the main toolbar simply do not function (such as "Publish the file on JasperReports Server.")

  • Could use a bit more flexibility in their approach to stories.
  • Relatively expensive on a per seat basis.
  • The viewer requires substantial hardware for good responsiveness.

You are missing some templates and when you are building large amounts of reports it can be tedious. There are problems with Quartz and we got some constant problems with scheduling reports. There are much faster solutions from other companies to built worse looking but with much faster development time

The releases of Tableau since 8.0 I would describe as incremental unless you are a MAC user. As of June of 2014 Tableau claims to have 17,000 unique customers, a statistic I accept to be true as they are a publicly held company. The unique company name count now exceeds 20,000. Tableau delivers an excellent product. Beta tests are thorough, due dates are met and client acceptance is high

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.

When used as a stand-alone tool, Tableau Desktop has unlimited uptime, which is always nice. When used in conjunction with Tableau Server, this tool has as much uptime as your server admins are willing to give it. All in all, I've never had an issue with Tableau's availability.

Performance

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 performs as well as could be expected; the challenge is making sure the data is organized correctly to optimize performance.

I ALWAYS get a response from the Tibco support team and they always offer a solution or develop a solution and then offer it. I definitely feel like my issues are important to Tibco and they work diligently to resolve them and ensure I am satisfied with the result. This is support beyond what I typically expect in the software industry.

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).

There is a Server installation training video on Tableau's website. I highly recommend that everyone watch it. It only takes a few minutes and could save you quite a bit of time.

Alternatives Considered

I have used Crystal Reports, SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS), and Business Objects prior to my experience with Jaspersoft. Unlike SSRS, Jaspersoft works easily with multiple database platforms. Crystal Reports is aimed more directly at the end-user, and Business Objects while flexible, is much less developer friendly. Jaspersoft provides cross-platform/database functionality, customizability and the ability to integrate into whatever end-user interface is desired. Additionally, it is much more scalable than the others mentioned. These are some of the reasons we selected Jaspersoft.
Ken Sparks profile photo
Performance: Power BI does not stack up against Tableau if there are huge amounts of data needs to report or dashboarding. The visualization interface of Tableau is much more user-friendly than its competitors. Therefore, we are using the Tableau for our reporting, dashboarding, and many pattern recognitions. It is a great tool.

Although tableau is highly interactive and fast but with very large dataset its performance degrades heavily. So up to certain extent its really good but after that we have to take care of its performance issues.
