  • We embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our internally used application(s)
  • We use TIBCO Jaspersoft for print-ready, pixel-perfect reporting
  • Other
We are deploying Jaspersoft products to provide BI solutions to replace legacy reporting applications and provide a new generation of dashboards and visualizations embedded in portals, web pages, and internal applications.
  • Provides a great API with control over all of its Jasper server functionality allowing automation and external management and maintenance and deployment.
  • Very easily integrated reporting engine into Java applications. Very easy to integrate with external applications using the API for the server component and libraries for standalone.
  • The purely XML based report definitions make automation of generating report source very easy.
  • Handles a huge range of data sources out of the box and is very easy to develop custom data sources. It is fairly easy to find code examples for developers.
  • The documentation for users, admins, and developers is very good.
  • Extremely easy to deploy internally or cloud-based.
  • Provides a wide range of output and visualizations, not just typical "reports".
  • The JasperSoft Studio (Eclipse + plugins) is not always a joy to use. The choice of using Eclipse as an IDE base is understandable, but it comes with the issues and difficulty of Eclipse. The Eclipse integration lacks any useful debugging features and the error messages are vague and it makes it difficult for non-developers to determine what is actually wrong with the JRXML source in many instances.
  • The Jasper Server component (CE anyway) is difficult to brand and customize the web GUI.
  • Sub-report data sources can be quirky and overly complicated to define and get "right". Combing multiple data sources with multiple sub-reports is not easy.
  • How report variables work, specifically the increment types and reset types combined with where they get used in report bands, is very difficult for the average report writer to grasp.
Jaspersoft is most well-suited in an enterprise environment where a common reporting and BI framework is needed complete with end-user support. It's also well-suited for integration with other applications using the API and Java libraries. It would be way too complicated and overkill for a small business that just wants to generate and run a few reports, with only one person developing and managing those reports (quite common).

  • We embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our commercial application(s) that we sell to customers
It is being used to provide reports, charts, and graphs to our users. Reports are embedded using the Javascript API.
  • Single sign-on works seamlessly.
  • The server is easy to manage.
  • Visualizer.js is excellent.
  • Not as glossy as Tableau.
  • Training materials are spread all over the place.
  • Not enough video training materials.
For embedding anything into a web application, it is excellent. Its open-source routes make it easy to administer. I feel it needs more attention in building/designing reports and implementing a high visual impact.

Currently we have Jasper Report Server as a single sign on from our application. This give our customers the ability to create adhoc views and other features available in report server. The domains connect directly to our database that contains thousands of fields to use in reporting. In 2020 we will begin the embedding process in our applications.
  • AdHoc views are really useful when you want to implement self service reporting for your customers.
  • Support is absolutely amazing. Generally they will update a case within an hour or less.
  • Our customers love the freedom to create custom reports and being able to export in the format that they want.
  • I was not impressed with the sales process specially our Account Manager. He was rude and very unwilling to bend or negotiate.
  • There are some features that would be helpful in our setup. For example we have issues not being able to remove duplicates based on the dataset in the view itself. So you cannot do a select distinct in an adhoc view.
  • We stuggle with adding a filter on an aggregate totals. There is no option for the over partition function.
We did a lot of research when selecting Jaspersoft because we have unique needs. In our case we needed to replace Oracle Discoverer so we need to give our customers an Adhoc experience. This does it well whereas other similar products are only focused on Analytics.

  • We embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our commercial application(s) that we sell to customers
We embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our health app to give care organizations insights of patient and the clinics. We have an application which deals with patients with chronic health issues, and our embedded Jasper report provides insights to care providers.
  • It's easy to use when creating a report or dashboard using Jasper studio.
  • Adhoc reporting allows for more dynamic reporting.
  • Can use custom themes based on your needs.
  • Ad-hoc reporting can be improved further. The custom styling features in adhoc report could be included.
  • Need more culture (locale-based) included for Jasper reports. For example, it does not have locale for the Netherlands.
Fast development with wide sets of data sources and good support. It is easy to create dashboards and multiple levels of reporting. The only problem is we need to create a report for each drill down separately.

  • We embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our internally used application(s)
  • We use TIBCO Jaspersoft for print-ready, pixel-perfect reporting
We utilize JasperReport Server as our reporting application to quickly build and run ad-hoc queries to generate csvs for external systems. This makes creating new reports fast and easy without waiting for a release cycle to push code. We also use Jasper Studio to build custom report cards and transcripts.
  • Can easily build reports from predefined tables or derived queries.
  • Can schedule reports to run and send to an ftp server.
  • Can easily customize the report server with your own skin.
  • Too many hotfix releases cause issues with having to reapply your customization over and over.
  • Hard to diagnose issues that arise without turning on debugging mode which generates way too much information.
  • Takes about 2 minutes to start up.
Well suited for businesses who need enterprise-level reporting, dashboards, exports with scheduling capabilities, or for creating "pixel-perfect" reports. Also, for embedding reports and dashboards into your own application. This is not for things you can do easily in Microsoft Word or Excel, this is an intuitive scalable application.

  • We embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our internally used application(s)
  • We use TIBCO Jaspersoft for print-ready, pixel-perfect reporting
Create reports from a very large database. We customized reports from a large database to help the users in various departments get the information they need faster and in the format they require.
  • The XML file created is reliable and portable.
  • It's relatively easy to drag the data elements to its corresponding fields in the report
  • Counting pixels - extremely manual and time consuming activity. It should be a drag and drop function.
  • Aligning fields manually - time consuming.
  • The product has some bugs. Have to close the application and open it again to see my updates.
Well suited for very simple reports with only a few data elements. Not well suited for large reports. For large reports with a large number of data elements, it's very difficult to design the report or especially update the designed report. For example, once a data element has to be inserted in the middle of a report, a tedious pixel renumbering has to be done for the entire report.

It suited well for TABLE format reports and lightweight dashboards. It is very easy for the deployment team to plug and play with the product. Easy to integrate with client applications with hand ready REST APIs.

We have embeded Jasper Server and Jasper ETL distributions with our Telco product.
  • Generating reports over web services enables distributed reporting capabilities with authentication.
  • Inbuilt features of Jasper Server help in designing reports as required by the customer.
  • Jasper Server is capable in using with many data adapters like Oracle, PostgreSQL and NoSQL stores.
  • Jasper Server needs some improvements further on its performances in generating reports.
  • Customers claim some security violations on numerous plain text passwords appearing inside the source code.
  • Jasper Server needs automated purging mechanisms on its scheduled reports.
A well suited feature of Jasper Server is the distributed functionality in generating reports over web services which enables the decoupling components in a better way.

  • We embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our commercial application(s) that we sell to customers
  • We use TIBCO Jaspersoft for print-ready, pixel-perfect reporting
We use Jaspersoft primarily as our embedded reporting module within our own SaaS offerings.

The major benefit we found as a company when choosing to license a third party reporting system was that Jaspersoft gives us greater opportunity to focus on our own product growth. The reporting offered through Jaspersoft allows us to use them within our own applications so that we do not have to use resources to develop our own suite of reporting offerings. We had many client requests for pixel perfect reporting as well as ad hoc use of their own data and not enough resources to expend on the effort; Jaspersoft fulfills both of these requests. For my own work, the Jaspersoft domain and ad hoc abilities allow me, a non-developer, to be able to analyze data without the middleman help of a developer to get me the information. My own support level has increased as I am abler now to better service clients due to the greater expose and ease I am able to gather client data and give feedback.
  • 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)
  • If you do not have a proper hardware set up, report run-time can be slow and take up a lot of resources in a shared stack. You must fine tune a lot of set up for DB servers in order to get that perfect runtime for end users
  • Users with very slow connections/not close to runtime locale of reporting server can have very slow experiences with reports
  • It is a large learning curve to gain that best-practice knowledge of using DB. This is understandable for most products. I wish that Jaspersoft had better documentation for this in the form of more shared examples in order for users to gain better business practice-use of the product. We struggled with many trial and error methods until finding those perfect solutions.
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 can guarantee quality attributes such as scalability, security, and confidentiality in the presentation of information with TIBCO.
  • The implementation of security with Visualize.js took us a long time due to the lack of documentation on the subject.

  • We embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our commercial application(s) that we sell to customers
  • We use TIBCO Jaspersoft for print-ready, pixel-perfect reporting
We use TIBCO Jaspersoft to allow our company and clients to access and analyze their fundraising data. We use ad-hoc domains and reports, as well as, the more advanced Jaspersoft Studio reports. By building standard domains, our clients are able to create their very own custom ad hoc reports with table, crosstab, and chart visualizations. For those more complex use cases, we are able to create more advanced reports with Jaspersoft Studio.
  • TIBCO Jaspersoft allows you to embed reports into your own application, which gives users the feeling they are using a single product.
  • TIBCO Jaspersoft Studio allows for more advanced report development, such as adding subreports, drilldown to detail reports, images, page headers, page footers, maps, and more.
  • TIBCO's Jaspersoft Domain Designer is very easy to use and navigate.
  • Ad-hoc views and reports don't allow for the capability to enter or modify SQL being used. Users always have to rely on how the domain is built.
  • Ad-hoc views and reports don't have the functionality to automatically remove duplicate rows.
  • If a domain is extremely large and contains several derived tables, slowness is a big issue. Not only is there slowness in the domain designer, but there is slowness when using said domain as the data source of an ad-hoc view.
TIBCO Jaspersoft is well suited for users who are not too technical. These users are able to easily drag and drop domain fields from their database to create friendly table reports. Users can easily add filters to their reports which allows for reusability. On the other hand, if a user is looking to add information that has many-to-many relationships, duplicates will appear. Having duplicates in an ad-hoc view and not being able to easily remove them is a big issue for many of our clients.

  • We embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our internally used application(s)
  • We use TIBCO Jaspersoft for print-ready, pixel-perfect reporting
At my previous role at a large public university we were faced with a requirement of producing live, interactive and visually appealing reports to be used by senior management at various stakeholder meetings going all the way up to the board of governors. We decided to use TIBCO Jaspersoft Reporting software to help satisfy that need. We leveraged the software for reporting on various student data as well as financial well being of the different university departments.
  • Jaspersoft has an excellent self-service module that allows ad hoc report creation and can be easily worked by non-technical users as well.
  • Using this tool, it doesn't matter if you are viewing the report on a desktop screen or smaller mobile screens, the experience is seamless.
  • One of the issues we found during our implementation was that the reporting software would work faster for certain data sources and not the others. Extracting CSVs and XML was slower in comparison to JSON in our experience.
  • Jaspersoft Studio was the main IDE we used for development. Built atop the Eclipse IDE, we found that the tool was really resource intensive and generally take long time to initialize.
TIBCO Jaspersoft is an excellent reporting tool that makes creating live interactive reports and dashboards very easy. These graphically rich reports can be embedded in our application, emails or simply printed out without any additional hassle.

  • We embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our commercial application(s) that we sell to customers
The business application was initially designed to use the reporting solution provided by Microsoft, that is Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services. We decided to move to TIBCO Jaspersoft because it is much more powerful, and most of all, it provides the ability to let our end users design their own reports within our custom business application. This is valuable plus ends in a further selling point for our business application. Users are really happy with the ability to design their own reports, considering each one would like to have a personalized customization. Before switching to TIBCO, such requests where being managed by developers, with a very high cost in terms of time, resources, and ROI. So TIBCO is also helping with ROI.
  • TIBCO Jaspersoft is able to integrate perfectly with our custom business application.
  • TIBCO Jaspersoft has a valuable designer to let the end users design their own tailored reports based on a selection of data provided in application design phase.
  • TIBCO Jaspersoft is able to manage multi-tenancy for our end users, allowing for the segregation of duties and data isolation.
  • It requires a lot of resources to provide a good end user experience, especially in terms of memory.
  • The management of custom domains to define the users and properties is hard to manage, causing a tree-structure with too many leaves.
  • The integration between TIBCO and SQL Server should be improved since its installation and maintenance is currently not as easy as the integrated database solution.
The scenario where TIBCO Jaspersoft is perfectly fitting is the integration with a custom business application, where end users are required to use a custom designer to define their personal reports, tailored to their needs, based on a specific set of data information, which can be identified in the application design phase. This allows the designers to limit the scope of the data, but allows the user the freedom to design the look and feel of their reports.

[It] Fills a gap in our product for an enterprise grade embedded analytics and BI tool.
  • Pixel perfect reports
  • Multi-tenancy
  • Jaspersoft Studio - a powerful tool for designing reports and publishing them seamlessly to the server
  • SSO (Single Sign-On)
  • Affordable BI stack
  • Dated UI. Definitely not Web 2.0!
  • Multi-tenant row level security and data domains are not easily implemented without consultants.
  • Learning curve. Training and documentation drives success, even for technical folks.
  • Lack of sample reports/templates for the education vertical.
  • Server config/license management should be web accessible for the superuser.
Well Suited:
  1. Organizations with technical staff (db,web,Java,Linux,etc.).
  2. Multi-tenant SaaS vendors
  3. Broader strategy support as in Basic Analytics to Enterprise BI level scaling.
Less Appropriate:
  1. Basic Analytics
  2. Lack of dedicated technical resources. Impacts on deployment models. E.g. Data Warehouse.Y/N?
  3. Jaspersoft Studio needs in enterprise multi-tenant environments

We use the adhoc reporting structures for massively complex analytical reporting. We use the prepared reporting features to deliver reports to our internal and then via representatives, external clients.
  • Adhoc domain structure is flexible and robust. It puts quite a lot of power into the hands of our power users and enough simplicity into our other users' hands to get them most often what they need.
  • Datasource connectivity. We have easily been able to connect to multiple data sources to produce reports which has been critical for us. The ease of use of this was part of our selection of Jaspersoft as our BA product.
  • Ease of use and extensibility of visualizations. Having HTML5 charts available with all the available options means we can EASILY make data pretty and usable for pretty picture people.
  • Dashboards. They are easy to build and flexible. Wonderful feature.
  • Performance on some of the way adhoc domains work. So for example, we have to set the default aggregation on all fields to NONE otherwise it calculates them ahead of time, causing delays. This is mostly because of the size of data we are dealing with. Having to set that default to NONE means we need more educated users to use the tool. Not a show stopper, but could be better.
  • We purchased JaspersoftETL. Just don't bother. There is no TIBCO support for that product and after this experience, I wouldn't recommend the underlying product at all.
Internal reporting when you need everyone to have access to big data! PowerBI is nice and all, but you can't put all that data on PCs. So much better to make it available via Jaspersoft. Report presentation in general. Dashboards you want to embed into your application. Really, presentation of data? It doesn't get better than Jaspersoft.

We are an Identity and Access Governance software [company]. Embedded Jaspersoft Reports helps in creating reports for various business needs and compliance requirements. The ad-hoc report builder feature is heavily used as audit requirements change all the time.
  • Adhoc Report Builder : It helps creating new reports on the fly without the need of code change
  • Handling big volume of Data: In the event of multiple pages report output, it show the first page very quickly and keeps on loading the pages in the background
  • Report Export : All the reports can be exported in Word/Excel/PDF formats
  • Reports auto schedule: All the reports can be auto scheduled to run at defined intervals and can send the output in a email attachment
  • Dashbaord: Dashboard need to be made Interactive with drilldown capabilities
  • Report output should be seamless on any screen size

Adding Jaspersoft to your enterprise application works well with SSO and spring security. Enterprise applications should focus on their core business and leverage 3rd party software like Jaspersoft for Report building capabilities

If your Enterprise application is not JAVA based , then it may not be suited

We use Jaspersoft as a BI solution both internally and to our customers. Jaspersoft is a multifaceted B.I. solution that allows me to provide my customers with access to their data in a manner that is useful and meets their needs.
  • Jaspersoft implements easily with a number of infrastructure configurations.
  • Reports are always easy to schedule.
  • Ad-hoc design is simple and quick.
  • Custom reports are easily published through Jaspersoft Studio
  • Management of templates could be easier.
  • Simplify queries to work more easily for troubleshooting.
  • Implement report designer into Jaspersoft reporting to enhance report aesthetics.
  • Remove dashboard and create modular cells.
Jaspersoft really excels in delivering data on a scheduled basis by being easy to create automatically recurring reports delivered to the customers' inbox. Jaspersoft could be improved from the novice user perspective by being more user friendly for those with minimal exposure.

  • We embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our commercial application(s) that we sell to customers
  • We use TIBCO Jaspersoft for print-ready, pixel-perfect reporting
We use Jaspersoft as our reporting server to supply reports to the customers of our SaaS product. Our product uses data collected from our street signs, including speed, volume, etc., which is then uploaded to the cloud. Once this data is uploaded to the cloud, our customers can run a number of different reports on this data. Jaspersoft hosts all of these reports, and all we have to do is provide the parameters and serve it up to the customer.
  • The reports are exactly as they are designed in Jaspersoft Studio. It allows for pixel-perfect editing, so we can be sure the reports our customers get look great.
  • We have a number of different data stores for our different products, and Jaspersoft has connectors for all of them. No matter where our data is, Jaspersoft allows us to access it easily, and transform it into a great looking report.
  • Once the reports are uploaded to the Jaspersoft Server, it is very easy to generate the reports. Be it passing parameters via the URL, using the REST api, or embedding using Visualize.js, generating the reports is a breeze.
  • The UI on the report designer, Jaspersoft Studio, looks a little outdated. I think that Studio as a whole could use a facelift. Additionally, Jaspersoft Studio tends to slow down over time, requiring a restart of the program.
  • There is a bit of a learning curve with all of the intricacies of Jaspersoft Studio, it's kind of overwhelming when trying to learn it from nothing.
  • One functionality that seems to be missing, that would help our use-case, would be the ability to parameterize a JSON URL as a data source. For example, if there was a call to a set of JSON data, it has to be a static URL. But in many cases, APIs that return JSON take parameters via the URL. Jaspersoft does not support that.
I think that Jaspersoft lends itself very well to scenarios in which a company has a set of static reports that are going to be generated frequently. Whether it is internal reports, or external customer facing reports, Jasper does the job and does it well. In scenarios where reports need to be more dynamic, such as changing columns, it is less appropriate.

  • We use TIBCO Jaspersoft for print-ready, pixel-perfect reporting
We have recently begun the national roll-out of a newly designed system to manage a significant portion of the business. For the first time ever, this new system allows users to produce real-time reports. Jaspersoft is the perfect technology for providing this reporting solution. Jaspersoft enables us to seamlessly embed reports into our web interface and allows us to control nearly every aspect of reporting for the end-user. By using Jaspersoft, users can produce high quality reports, save those reports for future execution, schedule reports and export the output into PDF, Excel or CSV format. Having experience with other reporting solutions throughout my career, I am confident that Jaspersoft provides the greatest flexibility in a high quailty tool.
  • Jaspersoft can be seamlessly embedded into web applications.
  • Jaspersoft is easily customized allowing nearly complete control over the reporting environment.
  • Jaspersoft is scalable allowing it to grow to meet the needs of our growing user base as our deployment rolls out across the country.
  • Jaspersoft is easy to learn for the report developer.
  • 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.")
Well Suited: Jaspersoft is the optimum solution for embedded reports. It allows this to be done seamlessly where a user would assume you wrote the reporting directly into the web page rather than embedding a tool.

Less Appropriate: I would not recommend native Jaspersoft as an ad-hoc reporting tool for the end-user. Because it provides so much flexibility, it is probably a bit too complex for the end-user.

  • Very customizable in terms of UI look and feel and report generation through Java/scripting
  • Responsive customer support and great UpShift program that offers useful implementation/integration help to developers
  • Can be quite CPU/memory intensive, especially when multiple users are running larger reports at the same time.
  • Ad hoc report cache tuning can be tricky to balance between better performance and having more current data, especially when different reports have different needs.
It is well suited for scenarios like:
  • Integrating with other business products to provide pixel perfect reporting/charting
  • A general/stand-alone reporting platform for BI specialists
Less appropriate for:
  • Reporting real-time data
  • As a replacement of a search and display result screen, as it can be less efficient due to rendering overhead

  • We embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our commercial application(s) that we sell to customers
We are a storage company, we do provide unified storage reporting for the set of appliances we provide to the customer. We ship TIBCO Jaspersoft report server to our end user. This provides authentication and authorization to the end user based on the out of the box authentication user spring framework TIBCO Jaspersoft provides on a multi-tenant environment.
  • Ease and adaptability to rebrand it according to your needs. UI is the most feasible to add new pages.
  • The help docs on the community site and support are always prompt. The high charts and its features are really great to provide better visualization.
  • The report studio provides ease to design the reports and implement styles according to the needs.
  • Implementing out of the box authorization for domain more easily. Now we need additional expertise on groovy to accomplish this.
  • Upgrades to be much easier and require less manual work to update all configurational changes.
Jasperserver best suits when the use is for multiple customers, say an MSP customer wants all his clients accesss their own reporting in that case jasper server suits the best. It also known for its vivid range of graphs/elements available and the option to embed the plugin if necessary.
Your own script for anything to be done on runtime.

Jasper doesn’t support point in time reporting, say I need a scheduled report for every hour for the list of events happened over that hour, I can’t get only get information. Jasper’s default date range doesn’t support that.

BI visualilsation for SaaS product
  • Flexible visualisation
  • Deep integration with wider software product
  • Highly customisable
  • Not as polished as higher end BI solutions
  • Product development and support responsiveness can be sluggish
  • Commercial/account management contacts dont add value
A good BI visualization solution where you need a balance between powerful functionality and detailed customization. Good breadth of functionality (canned reports, self-service etc).
