Looker

If you're a company who's been in business for a few years, and can afford a Looker license, then I wouldn't really look anywhere else. We've looked at a TON of data analytics/BI tools over the years and Looker is, by far, the best we've seen. However, that comes with a cost. If you're a new startup, Looker probably isn't appropriate for you because of the cost.

Any scenario where you need to reach back into TIBCO support is something I would highly avoid. Most responses at the second round get you pointed to engaging their professional services. The general mentality seems to be "since our product acquisition cost is low, why don't you engage PS to get the value you need" If you are looking at enterprise scenarios, I would highly recommend looking at other more established products.

Pros

Looker

  • Incredibly advanced analytics tool that is even more capable if you learn how to use LookML which is Looker's custom programming language.
  • Quick access to the raw data that is being visualized allows you to spot check for data integrity.
  • My usage with Looker is limited because of our integration but, having seen their updates over time, the integrations with Slack, Salesforce, and other tools appear to greatly improve organizations' workflows.

TIBCO Jaspersoft Community Edition

  • Very intuitive tool - An Advanced reporting user can figure out in a day on the end to end operations.
  • Easy customization - Simple changes in UI makes it less headache for the end user who maintains the tool. Being an open source product (offers Jasper web services) makes a lot developer friendly compared to SSRS, Cognos etc.
  • Easy Connectivity - Can connect to any data source (can connect to multiple data sources) for a single report - can be customized.
  • Community - A very strong community available online, videos - on basic how to questions, also provides assistance to use case specific scenarios.
  • Ease of Reporting - Can create a reports with in few clicks with out struggle.
  • Domain Designer - A very powerful tool you can create a dataset using clicks with out writing SQL code.
  • OnDemand Scheduling - A very good scheduling feature and a has got lot more simplistic compared to other popular tools like Cognos.
  • Jasper Studio - Very good programmatic tool (desktop tool) lets you customize the reports more company specific, can embed complex coding with 3rd party languages like Java, Groovy (scripting language).

Cons

Looker

  • Mobile viewing is HTML based, not always highly viewable.
  • Basic operations can be difficult to achieve. There is a function called table calculations which allows this.
  • Running on a single server, the entire instance can slow down if even one user schedules a large dashboard.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

TIBCO Jaspersoft Community Edition

  • Easier to customize the Jasper Server GUI. More flexibility with the input controls look and feel and maybe more input control types to select from.
  • Have browser event functionality in the reporting itself.
  • An easier way to iterate through an object. Maybe an option that tells the report Java run-time to stop following the report sequential flow and first integrate through this stated object many times.
  • An easier way to create a list and add values to this list.
  • Maybe one could stipulate the process flow of what needs to be computed first in a given field.
  • The crosstab is a bit buggy on the Jasper studio side, so if that could be improved.
  • Better and more examples of custom components
  • The jive functionality on the tables needs an update. It looks so old and outdated.

We've been very happy with Looker so far, and all teams in the organization are starting to see its value, and use it on a frequent basis. It has quickly become our accessible "source of truth" for all data/metrics.

Even though there are challenges with Architecture, sizing and other areas with Jaspersoft provided that Jaspersoft comes up with the right set of innovation, performance, scalability, and documentation in future it will be great expansion (win-win) situation for the clients and as well as Jaspersoft.

There is a lot of room for improvement, but the basics are easy enough for non technical end users to pick up. It does allow them to get started, but it requires a lot more effort to customise their reports after that. The online community is very limited as well, so there isn't a lot of reference material available through a simple google search. A lot of people would have to go through the support channels to do things, which ultimately means they don't end up doing it, unfortunately.

Looker support specialists are heroes. They are knowledgeable, smart, and always vouch for your success. The availability is super quick, and even if there is no current solution for my problem, they will address it and voice it as feedback for a product.

While the training was somewhat beneficial, a lot of what was taught to us was what we managed to figure out in the weeks prior. It did provide some useful tips and reference material, but overall something more tailored to our requirements would've been better.

New releases can be very buggy, also lacking when it comes to standard time zones and formats that are outside the US. As a company we never feel comfortable implementing a new release for at least 3-6 months due to errors that are found

Alternatives Considered

Looker

Looker stacks up very well against the other tools we have evaluated and used. All the tools have their own pros and cons. Looker had a better edge in terms of visualizations when we chose to use it. After several updates, other tools began to have newer features. Looker still stands competitive.
Purav Vaidya | TrustRadius Reviewer

TIBCO Jaspersoft Community Edition

Crystal reports is very expensive and does not integrate well with java based servers. Jasper also provides community edition, if we every want to downgrade the use, we always have the option of eliminating the server and using the reports as they are. Jasper also give you the opportunity to build BI on case by base basis including Dashboards.

TIBCO Jaspersoft Community Edition

  • Jaspersoft Community Edition has not had any significant impact on our ROI as we have purchased the commercial edition of the product.
  • The only impact on ROI is that when we bring on new developers, he or she can begin work using the community edition while awaiting the installation of the commercial edition.
