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.

In my experience, it is well suited for data analysis of many petroleum industry challenges where patterns and relationships exist but aren’t always apparent without full analysis.

Pros

  • Provides a self service reporting environment
  • Reports are seamlessly easy to build and deploy
  • Report and user level security allows you to restrict access in various ways
  • The dashboard designer is incredibly powerful and easy to use. Non technical users are able to build dashboards to suit their own needs
  • The use of multiple data sources proves very helpful when federating data from different databases
Lee Owens profile photo
  • Spotfire works very well as a central point for access to all data that could be used to analyze a subject and multiple types of spreadsheets and/or databases can be accessed with the same dashboard.
  • Multiple plots, graphs, charts, maps, and other analytic tools are simple to apply to easily-filtered data. Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of the user interface, as Spotfire is a very, very customizable and powerful tool.
  • Excellent support and educational resources are available to help decrease the learning curve and strengthen one's data analytic ability.
  • The use of Spotfire ultimately helps to better understand the relationships and patterns that are or could be significant in building value for a company.
  • It is not glitchy and has an intuitive user interface.

Cons

  • Excel defaults. When designing a report for PDF then exporting to Excel, Jaspersoft, in an effort to maintain pixel perfection, makes the excel version a bit unusable. It is possible to mitigate some of that with some intelligent directives but it would be easier if some things -- getting rid of extraneous rows and columns, for example, would behave a bit more intuitively without intervention.
  • More intuitive security on JasperServer. Much of the security features on Domains and Ad Hoc reporting require either direct manipulation of SQL, XML, or repository placement. I'd like to see some intuitive screens for setting up security in a more visual and intuitive manner.
  • More flexible security on JasperServer. I'd also like to see security down to the data source layer. Going through Domains is not always viable.
  • Better automatic validation up and down the Datasource to Domain to Ad Hoc chain when there is a change to a datasource or domain.
Craig LaValle profile photo
  • The code required to make customized commands could be improved by placing more focus on its usability for non-coders. This would greatly improve the use of Spotfire’s real power for many non-coder users.
  • Maybe the ability drag and drop a spreadsheet or multiple files to a “Spotfire Analysis Bucket” to initiate a new dashboard would be handy.
  • Easier access to download data from a particular graph to other spreadsheets.

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

Reliability and Availability

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.

The Spotfire client is very reliable. There are sporadic crashes that are made worse due to the lack of an auto-save. Most product upgrades are uneventful. The one major issue we experienced was quickly responded to by Tibco. Our system admins have indicated that the Spotfire servers and the ancillary web-player systems are reliable, but requires time to learn how to deal with the unique nature of the web player and resource loading.

Performance

TIBCO Jaspersoft9.0
Based on 2 answers
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.

Based on 12 answers
The client on its own is impressively quick with rendering numerous visualizations, loading large amounts of data, and joining several data tables. Performance begins to degrade with the use certain data transformations (eg. pivoting data within the client), calculation expressions (eg. "Over" expressions), and large data aggregations within the Spotfire data engine. We achieved significant performance gains by having our data teams aggregate data at within our data views (before it reaches Spotfire), employing data-on-demand (user initiated data queries in a report), and by employing data limiting options within visualization reports.

In-Person Training

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.

I have only had the basic training. It was very useful for new users. The majority of what is taught in the training can be self-taught by daily use of the product. However there were also many things I learned even after using the product for over a year. I would highly recommend investing in the training offered by TIBCO

The online training is good, provides a good base of knowledge. The video demonstrations were well-done and easy to follow along. Provided exercises are good as well, but I think there could be more challenging exercises. The training has also gone up in price significantly in the last 3 years (in USD, which hurts us even more in Canada), and I'm not sure it is worth the money it now costs (it is worth how much it cost 3 years ago, but not double that.)

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

Tibco Jaspersoft is a stronger competitor than the Microsoft Reports and ETL products. The flexibility and power of using the software, multi platform and deployment and monitoring has no comparison to what you use.It would be interesting to integrate some features of predictive controls of Tibco Spotfire in Tibco Jaspersoft ETL and Jaspersoft Reports.More robust features in the BPM type documentation in the Job ETL.Also more features and types of Jobs of the different flavors of Talend products.
Pedro G. Jiménez profile photo
Spotfire is much more powerful than Google Drive and more navigable than Microsoft Office. Though Google Drive is free and has collaborative abilities, Spotfire is a really great more professional alternative that still allows collaboration and has excellent graphics. Microsoft Office (excel specifically) is powerful but takes time to learn and is common enough that graphics begin to all look the same. Spotfire is a great way to freshen things up.

Return on Investment

  • Our use of the tool has elevated the level of interest of our customers in the way the information is being presented.
  • Our organization has an added emphasis on business intelligence and our use of Jaspersoft has allowed for us to meet these goals in a more timely manner.
  • We do encounter and occasional glitch in the product that has us needing to find a work-around in order for us to meet a defined business requirement.

  • My role was a little disconnected from this. I don't know but I'd imagine it created a lot of visibility to where money was being lost in manufacturing.
