https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/M1/My/PIVU6BETBT1N.pngEmbedded BI for AllWe embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our commercial application(s) that we sell to customers We use TIBCO Jaspersoft for print-ready, pixel-perfect reporting,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.,8,It has made some of our applications stand out from competitors as our reporting engine offerings are much more advanced.It has allowed us to use our developers for our main products and not have to share with the BI requests. Now all of our reporting requests have gained in demand and we are making ourselves as a company more sought after with our reporting edge.,Jaspersoft Standard Support or Professional Standard Support for AWS (12 annual cases),As a software company, we have to deal with a lot of changes within the industry tools in terms of upgrades and changes in support for products. Jaspersoft is perfect in that there is not a single way to use/implement which allows us to spend less time working on the integration.,Privacy is of the utmost importance for our clients and so we value the security offerings in the application which allows us to host many clients in a shared environment. This brings down our cost and maintenance support of the clients and their interaction with the application.,7,TIBCO professional services,9,In-person training,8,If a user has no idea on the architecture of their database then use, I think jaspersoft is hard to understand how to use from a business user to admin level user. It involves an understanding of relationships of tables in order to create domains from which to make ad hoc views and reports. The concepts as a business user are not too hard to grasp in terms of being in an ad hoc environment and navigating the palette selections. Selecting which fields to use and so on is fairly simple with the drag and drop. What I did find was that the calculated measures and fields section to not be for beginner users and something that had to be advanced level in that I was not familiar with the syntax needed and had to make my own cheat sheet as the guidance in the ad hoc tool and online training guides was not enough. I really appreciated the jaspersoft community as a source of open questions on the product. I myself opened a few issues to see if the community could answer my question. There is a lot of knowledge in the shared experience of other users on the quirks of jaspersoft and so it remains a good place to "google" questions related to the product. When we were training I used the community page frequently to help with small things like chart formatting to browser related issues.,None/Don't Know/OtherJaspersoft--Power, Flexibility and SimplicityWe embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our commercial application(s) that we sell to customers We embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our internally used application(s) We use TIBCO Jaspersoft for print-ready, pixel-perfect reporting,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."),9,Jaspersoft has had a huge positive impact for my company. Our reporting platform has been one of the most reliable parts of our new system having been running in production for more than six months without a single production outage. The users love the ability to run reports themselves, real-time and export them in a number of formats. As a developer, I appreciate the back-end ability to monitor and debug any issues the users have such as report performance and accessibility. Having the ability to use a pre-defined template for new report creation allows for the rapid creation and deployment of new reports in a matter of days rather than weeks or months.,Jaspersoft Premium Support (No annual case limit),Our current implementation of Jaspersoft touches two data sources in a single web interface. Although we do not currently use Jaspersoft across multiple platforms or a large variety of data sources, we realize that may be a future need and appreciate the flexibility provided by Jaspersoft if that need arises. As our company continues to grow and we integrate more of our business units together, this broad platform support may become critically important in the future.,Multi-tenancy is a feature we currently use as we provide reports to internal users for client reports, reports to external clients (specific to an account) and accounting reports to our internal financial team. As all of these reports are accessed through the same web-interface it is critical to segment them by security and profiles.,Business Objects SRC and Microsoft SQL Server,9,Implemented in-house,10,Self-taught,The product was quite easy to learn the basics. Once I got more deeply into the product and began developing more complex solutions, my training became more intricate and I had to learn the product in more detail. However, overall would rate Jaspersoft as one of the more intuitive report development interfaces I have used.,None/Don't Know/Other,,,Real-time reporting Multiple data sources Mobile device reporting access Data visualizations,We have fully integrated Jaspersoft into a custom-developed web site for use by corporate personnel as well as clients Using our in-house developed web site, we have developed a very robust report scheduling system,We hope to use a future edition of Jaspersoft to query data from multiple, disparate data sources We plan to use Jaspersoft ad-hoc reporting,10,Microsoft Office 365, Snagit, Skype for Business,No,Product Features Product Reputation Vendor Reputation Existing Relationship with the Vendor Third-party Reviews,We are satisfied with our evaluation and selection process.,Yes,Yes,I was experiencing an issue where I was unable to use the publish button on my toolbar to publish reports. Jaspersoft support responded quickly with a work-around while they researched the issue. Within a couple of days, they were able to provide a patch correcting the issue.,Easy to insert an externally developed query into a report Easy to control deployment to multiple environments,It is difficult, if not impossible to incorporate source control with Jaspersoft It is currently not possible to use data from multiple data sources in a single report Upon publishing a report, it is frustrating that Jaspersoft does not save my publication preferences from report to report,9Good solution for those requiring tight integration or near-open source flexibility.We embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our commercial application(s) that we sell to customers,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,6,Jasper was a significant step on from our previous all-in-one BI solution. It allowed us to hit more of our requirements more closely and deliver a tighter integration of BI within our SaaS product.,Jaspersoft Premium Support (No annual case limit),Given we have currently only a single data source, this was not particularly important in our implementation, but the flexibility to access the data from where and as we required was comforting for the future.,Multi tenancy was vital to support our multi tenant SaaS customers. We were able to integrate the Jasper authentication with our own product's auth to provide a seamless experience within the service.,QlikView, Tableau Server and Pentaho,7,Implemented in-house Third-party professional services TIBCO professional services,7,Online training,8,None/Don't Know/OtherQuick review on Jasper ServerWe embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our commercial application(s) that we sell to customers,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.,7,Taking less time to develop reports is the ROI.,Jaspersoft Premium Support (No annual case limit) Jaspersoft Community,Specially, the ability of connecting with various data sources like Oracle, PostgreSQL etc. provides the flexibility on changing data platforms based on customer needs.,Multi-tenancy is a great feature associated with Jasper Server which provides the capability of maintaining a single server across different projects. However,this has no advanced use in our Telco products.,7,Implemented in-house,7,Online training Self-taught,5,Without training, learning this product might be difficult but materials can be found in the internet for self-learning as well.Jaspersoft -- Flexibility and Power at the Core of your BusinessWe embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our commercial application(s) that we sell to customers We use TIBCO Jaspersoft for print-ready, pixel-perfect reporting,Flexibility. TIBCO Jaspersoft is extremely flexible. We use the embedded report engine to crank out thousands of static reports in PDF and Excel format. We use JasperServer to serve up HTML and javascript based dynamic reports and dashboards through visualize.js. We also use JasperServer directly for working with data in an ad hoc fashion. There are even ETL capabilities (though we haven't really explored those much). There is also flexibility when it comes to connecting to different data sources, defining security, etc. Within reports you aren't even limited to the libraries that JasperSoft provides! We've done some very rich and complex visualizations through JasperSoft using third party libraries like D3.js. Really, the sky is the limit. I haven't run into a data presentation problem yet that I can't solve at least in part by using Jaspersoft. Report creation tools. Jaspersoft Studio is extremely powerful. It is also a very familiar environment for folks coming from other report creation tools. This is important to us because we have to train dozens of report writers across our clients every year. For those that come from Crystal Reports, Jaspersoft Studio feels very intuitive very quickly. Pixel perfection. We have a lot of standardized reports from the IRS and other government entities. Jaspersoft makes it easy to put a very visually complex form together quickly and accurately. Power. I have yet to run into a reporting problem Jaspersoft cannot solve.,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.,10,Online training In-person training Self-taught,We moved our clients from Crystal Reports to JasperSoft. Under SAP Crystal became far less flexible and prohibitively expensive. With JasperSoft we regained the flexibility and power that we required for our embedded reporting solution with the bonus (now a business necessity) of embedded dynamic reports and ad hoc capabilities to boot! We've trained dozens of report developers of a variety of skill levels to use JasperSoft and have been very successful. The conversion of hundreds of Crystal Reports has gone very smoothly. I don't think any other tool would have felt as familiar as Crystal and I don't think we would have been as successful with this business critical transition. We have been able to offer more reporting capability to our customers for far less cost while providing an environment that felt comfortable and familiar. JasperSoft has continued to innovate and grow and we continue to leverage those innovations every chance we get. Our ROI has been tremendous. There have been many sales made where JasperSofts capabilities over their competitors absolutely made the difference.,Broad platform support is important to us and our clients because school districts operate many different systems and they must report against systems they have very little control over like state data repositories. They also have requirements that are non-negotiable depending on their local political landscape and previous agreements like their database type, or whether they can operate in a hosted environment, multi-tenant environment, or if they have to stay on-prem or in a government run or sanctioned IT service center.,For us, multi-tenancy isn't that important. Having that capability has made local testing and development deployments easier, however, so we do appreciate it.,,8,Implemented in-house,8,40,7,Basic static reports against our client's databases. Dynamic Dashboards generated from our client's data. Ad Hoc reporting for executive-level employees of our clients.,Some of our clients have been able to take dashboards that we've generated to be embedded in our products pages and repurpose them for their own public-facing portals. If there are any changes in the underlying logic, their portal dashboards are updated at the same time!,Right now we use very specific 'Dashboard pages' to show dynamic reports and graphs. In the future, we plan on embedding dynamic, interactive graphs seamlessly throughout our product.,10,Yes,Price Product Features Positive Sales Experience with the Vendor Third-party Reviews,I wouldn't. It's worked out beautifully.,Yes,Change management was a big part of the implementation and was well-handled,Figuring out the security module Figuring out deployment workflow with our current operations processes Training our clients to use the new system Excel formatting reports that Crystal handled automagically.,Yes,We were attempting to create a link for the users of our product to jump into JasperSoft server and use the AdHoc features. Our main sticking point was security. Some of the AdHoc reports contained very sensitive information. There was a bit of an impedance mismatch between our security models. We also had a very limited understanding of JasperSoft's model. Over the course of several weeks JasperSoft stayed on the phone with us, answered our questions, performed go-to meetings to look at our code and security examples and, in general, did every thing they could to understand our security model and our aims and helped us craft a plan to make our end-user's experience as seemless as possible.,Connecting to a Data Source Scheduling Reports Distributing Reports Creating Ad Hoc reports,Changing underlying Domains,8

They offered complete set up training and help in navigating through all of the initial report builds. We had a Jaspersoft representative walk us through all of the steps to fully set up and launch our beta service to our first client. In retrospect, I think it would have helped if the person had been a little more knowledgeable in our industry and database but that would have been a little more above-and-beyond if they could have predicted the data builds we would need for better reporting performance.

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).

Our integration requirements were complex, but Tibco were able to find a way for us to get things working. The open source nature of the product makes this easier to an extent.

TIBCO Jaspersoft is highly flexible and able to be fine customized into our custom business enterprise solution. Anyway the complexity of our solution reflects in some additional effort when trying to map all our requirements into TIBCO Jaspersoft. This sometimes leads to performance issues, that requires continuous improvement of the solution, but TIBCO support is always available to help and contribute in getting it a success.

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.

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

The learning curve to complete the implementation was quite steep, and there are a lot of moving parts within a Jaspersoft deployment which can make it a challenge. However, we have now reached a stage where we rarely run into any implementation issues as the level of knowledge has increased sufficiently.
