https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/M1/My/PIVU6BETBT1N.pngJasper Reports is a great piece of software for reporting.We use TIBCO Jaspersoft for print-ready, pixel-perfect reporting Other,This may not be an obvious one, but the installer is well done. A lot of these products that are somewhat of a combination of other "back-end" components can be a pain to install. The fact that TIBCO/Jaspersoft bundles everything required into ONE installer is a huge blessing to any IT person wanting or needing to do an installation. Jasper makes upgrades VERY easy. Since the entire reporting repository can be exported in a few clicks of a mouse (or via the shell/command-line) and imported AS-IS into a newer version is a major win. The configuration files for Jasper's reporting server are all XML. Human readable. That's a big plus for people used to being forced into using proprietary software with closed-format binary configurations.,Documentation. While *using* Jasper Reports server is super simple and probably doesn't need much in the way of documentation, the overall quantity of documentation regarding some of the smaller details is severely lacking. The reports editor. JasperStudio is OK. We use it, we make loads of reports with it, it's 100 times better than what we used before. But, the documentation for the report editor is terrible, and it seems as if some things just don't make sense. For example, no quick way to signify that you just want columns of data in a delimited file, no formatting, no special spacing, no anything other than straight data. There IS a way to do that in JasperStudio, but it's time-consuming, and it's very "repeatable" in the sense that it COULD be automated fairly easily, but just isn't. Virtual Data Sources. This is one of the coolest and most useful things Jasper can do, but it's crippled and no explanation is given as to WHY it is that way. Crippled in what way, you may ask? The VDS system works in the Jasper Server, but NOT in the report editor. :/ As such, you can't test a report in the editor which needs data from a VDS then import that report into Jasper and use it. You can kinda fake it with datasets and connection parameters, but it just isn't what it COULD be with a little extra development.,10,It takes slightly MORE time for us to develop reports with Jasper compared to our previous solution, but what we can do with them is SO MUCH better, that the value isn't even comparable. Users are happier (easy to use interface). Customers are happier (auto-delivered reports). Fewer applications needed (Jasper can report on so many different kinds of data).,Other,Very important. While the underlying OSes supported is nice, the number of different types of datasources is where Jasper is awesome. In a larger organization, especially one that has made business acquisitions, you may be tasked with providing reports on data from several different data sources. Using Jasper made that SUPER easy. To us, it is very important. Having multiple deployment types is useful as well.,We currently do not utilize the multi-tenancy facet of Jaspersoft to integrate to a third-part application. As such, I cannot in good faith write a meaningful statement as the importance of this capability. If we were to expand the utilization of this software throughout our entire organization, we would surely use multi-tenancy.,,10,Implemented in-house,10,Self-taught,Yes. Yes, depending on experience with using other "design" software.,To the best of my knowledge, I have not engaged with the TIBCO Jaspersoft UpShift customer success program.,60,1,Reports for management. Being able to see whether or not we are making progress (via data / charts) is vital to see if our strategies actually work. Reports for customers. Some of our customers like getting various types of data regarding the services we provide for them. This is very easy for us due to the ability to schedule reports in Jasper. Using Jasper to out reports for our production and shipping accuracy is vital to one of our programs. Without the ability to quickly see if everything is accurate, our shipping would be greatly delayed.,I'm not sure we use Jasper and any innovative or unexpected ways. The reason we use Jasper is its flexibility as a software.,If other branches of the company used Jasper, we could use the multi-tenancy features. Right now, we just don't have a need for it.,10,Yes,Product Features Product Usability,I probably wouldn't change it. I downloaded the community version of Jasper, tried it, realized it did everything we wanted, and recommended it to our organization. Simple.,No,Change management was a minor issue with the implementation,None. We ran the installer, it installed. :/ Not sure if that's the answer you wanted, but it was super smooth.,10,Change the default timeout. Sessions timed out VERY quickly be default.,No - we have not done any customization to the interface,No - we have not done any custom code,We changed the default timeout for sessions. It was 20 minutes by default. This was somewhat of a pain for various reasons. Changed it to 4 hours.,Yes,No,I can't. But not because they wouldn't provide exceptional support. I've just never needed it.,Running reports. :) Literally just click on them. Finding reports. While I personally use the repository most frequently, I find that the majority of users just use the search.,This only applies to JasperStudio, so I don't know if this counts as toward the software that end-users would see... The cumbersome thing in JasperStudio is making a basic report to just output a CSV (or other delimited text file) with NO formatting, no "column width", no truncating of data. While it is doable, and not "hard", it is super time consuming compared to what you'd think...,10,10,10,10,None.,No.,API (e.g. SOAP or REST),10,Read the manual. :),10,10,We didn't negotiate any terms.,Luke 6:31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. If you treat a vendor well, they usually treat you well in return.,Yes,Honestly, for we use Jasper for, the ONLY benefit we got from upgrading was a little bit nicer interface setting up FTP output, and the ability to use the Salesforce driver.,While there may be some things I'd LIKE, I don't expect them. So really I am not expecting anything different from what we have now.,No,NoJaspersoft - It's OK...We embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our commercial application(s) that we sell to customers We embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our internally used application(s),Once installed, it is easy to configure and get up and running. It integrates nicely with our software platform. The support from TIBCO is pretty good when you are speaking to them in person.,The installation process is complicated. The update process is complicated. It is difficult to download the appropriate installation files from the TIBCO website.,7,Jaspersoft is the only Reporting Tool we are currently using, so it's difficult to say whether there has been a positive or negative impact.,Jaspersoft Standard Support or Professional Standard Support for AWS (12 annual cases) Jaspersoft Community,Very important - many of our clients have specific IT requirements and we need products which are flexible. For example, the default metadata Database is PostgreSQL, but some clients do not allow PostgreSQL in their production environment and so we need the ability to deploy using an Oracle Database (for example) and Jaspersoft does this nicely.,n/a,8,Implemented in-house,4,Self-taught,Yes - I think this was a sensible approach.,n/a,10,10,Develop Reports,n/a,n/a,9,No,No,Yes,I needed some information on OS support for JasperServer, so submitted a request which was answered within a matter of hours.,5,9,8

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.

There have been a few instances where Tomcat has consumed 100% CPU, which requires a restart to resolve, but other than that reliability has been excellent.
