Likelihood to Recommend

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.

  • Results are easy to use even for inexperienced user without IT Knowledge
  • There are lots of export possibilities. Especially important: Excel, PDF and PowerPoint
  • Jaspersoft reports are very lightweight: No extra database needed, they work directly with any database server

  • Collaboration and action task assignment on pinpointed issues highlighted in reports and dashboards.
  • End client easy self - service reporting.
Nicky Downing | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

TIBCO Jaspersoft

  • Community is quite large but it would be much more helpful if more experts could answer our questions
  • Their API is not that well documented
  • I would prefer some of the Pro features to exist on community edition as well, like for example HTML5 Charts
Andreas Evagorou | TrustRadius Reviewer

Yellowfin

  • Initially the Yellowfin business model was difficult to align to the VSV model but through some simple negotiations a workable model was reach which made in commercial application viable
  • Some additional licensing models could also be of value as we do not use the product in a pure business intelligence only application.

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

Usability

TIBCO Jaspersoft

TIBCO Jaspersoft 7.7
Based on 9 answers
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.

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.

I've had several issues using and implementing Jaspersoft over the last year. I've run into unique situations and strange bugs that seem to make no sense. Every time I've run into a brick wall on how to fix my issue, I've been able to create a support case with Jaspersoft and have a representative helping me within minutes. They've all been very knowledgeable about their product and every single issue I've had has been resolved. Granted, some of the issues took some creative solutions, but at the end of the day, I have a production environment that runs well and I know that if I run into any future issues, I'll have the assistance I need within minutes, not days.

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.

Since we needed to do a lot of editing of config files I am not satisfied. We were not able to automate deployment of reports. So that's why you got a bad mark. When anything goes wrong it hard to find in log files, and support and community is not that great, so spent a lot of hours to find solution myslef

Alternatives Considered

TIBCO Jaspersoft

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 | TrustRadius Reviewer

We ran a full procurement project to select Yellowfin and started with a long list of over 20 BI products. Key reasons for choice were ease of use, visual looks, product integrations and cost (both licence purchase and development of content).
