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,8TIBCO Jaspersoft to ease tailored reporting needs for end usersWe embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our commercial application(s) that we sell to customers,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.,7,The main advantage in terms of ROI when dealing with TIBCO Jaspersoft is the speed-to-market and cost saving when end users require changes in the definition of the reporting features within the custom business application. Before switching to TIBCO, the reporting features were based on Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services, where each report was produced by developers, and it was requiring an update of the application to embed the new reports, based on our current implementation. With TIBCO Jaspersoft, reports can be tailored at speed of light, without any involvement of developers (saving money into the application life cycle) and without any risk to introduce regressions.,TIBCO Jaspersoft is based on JAVA technology, while our custom business landscape is based on Microsoft .NET Framework technology. The two systems can seamlessly work together without any specific complexity, adding a great value to the overall solution provided to end users. Our solution is based on end user data hosted in SQL Server databases, and TIBCO can manage also this kind of data source, although it natively uses different database solutions.,Our business application is based on multi-tenancy. Our implementation is consisting of having one database per each customer. Thus also security is fundamental to allow segregation of duties and data isolation. The built-in multi-tenancy features in TIBCO Jaspersoft allowed us to perfectly integrate it into our landscape, letting each user to authenticate on Jaspersoft and access their data in a transparent and secure way.,Microsoft SQL Server,8,Implemented in-house,6,Online training,7,We have a dedicated Customer Success Manager, and we realized so far with our experience with TIBCO, that this is the highest value TIBCO is providing to our company as a partner. This is because this dedicated resource is available and willing to contribute and participate in our internal organization and internal discussions about our TIBCO Jaspersoft implementation roadmap.Top heavy but worth it in the end!We embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our commercial application(s) that we sell to customers,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.,7,No ROI realized yet. However, we are rebooting the project and have a better chance at success this time. Utilizing TIBCO resources to attain our goal this time, versus using third party external vendors.,We run on an open source stack and offer Jaspersoft as a SaaS product. So broad platform support is nice to have but not critical to us as long as our stack is supported.,Extremely important, especially for SaaS vendors like us that have a single database for all the clients. Data security and logical segmentation are critical to us and we would not even have considered Jaspersoft if it did not have native support for multi-tenancy.,Microsoft Power BI, Sisense and Tableau Online,5,Vendor implemented Professional services company,5,Online training,5,We used the UpShift customer success program for installation, training, upgrading, patching,etc. Not the best use perhaps but we needed to ensure a solid production environment for our clients. We burned through the hours with a reasonable outcome but no documentation/hand-off or follow through.,No,No,Not experienced it yet on the technical support side. On the business side though, The Client Success Manager is quite eager to help and reaches out frequently to check in. That can be attributes to good account management strategy as well. Also to be fair, Professional Services supported their work really well even after the engagement was complete. A part of that depends on the relationship you strike up with them as well.,Building basic reports. However, you need to be at least an intermediate level SQL expert as the bulk of the report creation logic lies in the SQL. Basic dashboards. User and Role Management Connecting to data. We used JDBC. Interactions with Reports/Dashboards and Data Export functions,Setting up row level security in multi-tenant deployments. We had to hire experts. Jaspersoft Studio Professional is very clunky to use Dated UI and UX concepts lead to the lack of intuitiveness. Visualize.js, with its shortcomings. iFrame embeds for Analytics is not the best or modern approach for integrations. That is what we had to use.,Yes, but I don't use it,6Presentation is 90% of the BI BattleOther,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.,8,With Jaspersoft we can more easily have people schedule and plan their own report delivery meaning we need fewer BI resources. In addition, they can explore the data on their own which means they are clearer when they come ask for things. Having prepared reports readily available means the people can get at the data they want when they want it. They do not have to wait for us to email them CSVs meaning work gets done faster. In addition, having those consistent reports means people all understand the data better, again making BI not have to be so big to be productive.,We are deployed on Ubuntu. It just had to work there. It does and very nicely. Memory management is easily customizable and works wonders.,We do not use this feature as of yet.,,8,Implemented in-house,9,Self-taught,Documentation is strong making it much more useful to learn on your own than to get training.Jasper 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,NoAbout JasperWe embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our commercial application(s) that we sell to customers,Charts are very good looking. It has dynamic and easy built reports For developers it is very easy to learn and develop nice looking reports very fast, even without any Java background. Adhoc reports are very useful. It is easily embedded into any web application Jasper server works very fast, and you can easily organize it and use it for several clients (by splitting organizations) Intuitive and easy administration for managing reports and permissions,Deployment of jasper reports is not good. Especially if you are planning some automatic deployment. Jasper studio Integration with TFS Most of configuring of Jasper server is mostly done in config files. There should be an option to do it on a server. i.e. email configuration. Database authentication is complex, needs to be documented better Logging errors needs to be improved.,8,Online training In-person training Self-taught,We managed to develop our solution with only 2 developers and it was large solution. So it is simple and doesn't require too much resources. We could built simple reports fast, but there are complex reports which are complex because of data but not for reports, and I have used much faster solutions for that.,Our application is Microsoft MVC web application ,and we use Microsoft Sql server we could easily embed it and use it with our solution, and usage of database authentication was not easy but we managed to integrate that also. Jasper is uses Java and PostgreSql (by default) but it is integrated with other types of solutions,It sounds good, but because of deployment issues and external authentication, we are not using it. It is a good idea to have one jasper server for multiple organizations, but some tune up is needed. We have a lot of reports and Scheduling reports (over Quartz) have caused us a lot of troubles, because when there are multiple reports scheduled at same time it simply stops working. That's why we create multiple jasper servers and use only one organization per each.,Microsoft BI and Pyramid Analytics,10,2,adhoc reports official on demand reports Scheduled reports,We didn't expect adhoc reporting to be so much useful We have clients in different time zones, so we didn't expect that we would easily provide data to different time zones. Jasper helped Didn't expect to embed it at first, but since it was simple we did it,ETL process analytics features for mobile,4,Not Sure,Product Features Product Usability,I would focus more one development time, and learning curve. Since reports looks nice, but you need too much time to develop such reports, which you don't have in rapid development projects. I would more insist and focus on our needs and then check if product feet what we are expecting from it.,Implemented in-house,No,Change management was minimal,configuring jasper server certificates database authentication configuration automate deployment,2,4,Yes,No, we had few bugs submitted. I don't think I got answer at all. We have a bug with Quartz and schedules were scheduled reports just stops working and no errors is logged. And we didn't get any answer, that far away from exceptional support. I also had a training and no answers to my questions after that.,administration of jasper server adhoc reports schedules deployment from Jasperstudio,Investigate errors, looking into logs automatic deployment configuring database authentication,Yes, but I don't use it,3Jasper Reports Server needs work with authencationWe use TIBCO Jaspersoft for print-ready, pixel-perfect reporting,Reports are easy to access/use for end users. User rights are easy to see how they break down for each user.,Jasper Reports Server really needs support for CAC (common access card) authentication or at least allow external authentication to authenticate internal users. My goal is to put a unique identifier, found on each CAC, as an attribute on each internal Jasper Reports Server accounts. I then want to authenticate users by making reference to this attribute then logging the users in as an internal user. I currently have my setup working with externally defined users, but it is a pain and I am trying to move to internally defined users.,7,Jasper Reports Server's greatest strength is that it allows for reports to be deployed on the fly without having to create a new build or restart the web application.,Jaspersoft Standard Support or Professional Standard Support for AWS (12 annual cases),As long as Jasper Reports Server supports our web application and database, we are good.,I don't currently utilize the multi-tenancy functionality.,,8,Implemented in-house,5,In-person training Self-taught,7,End users don't need training but administrators need some instruction.,N/A,40,2,Fast report creation Easy user role assignment Easy report permissions,N/A,N/A,8,Yes,Product Features Product Usability,No changes.,Yes,No,I had an issue importing the standard css design template and the Jaspersoft support person was able to supply the zip file I needed to import into Jasper Reports Server.,Report downloading is very easy and available in major formats like PDF and Excel,Backend CAC external authentication is difficult but fine other than that,9Reporting made easyWe embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our commercial application(s) that we sell to customers,Jaspersoft provides flexibility to create new domains dynamically instead of enforcing the need pre-defining them prior to launch of the product. Easy to integrate with any application Enhanced mobile app will make it handy to use jaspersoft even when we are not at home.,We have a default RowLimit of 200K set in the application at server level. We do not have an option to make it tenant specific. Few customers on a shared machine will want it to increase it to 500K but with this limitation it'll be applied for all other customers sharing the same server and that might affect performance. Error screens Jaspersoft shows the complete 200+ lines of stack trace in an error screen in the UI. We can have better error handling applied while displaying in UI.. In the application logs, it is better to include the tenant info as well. Otherwise, it is confusing to debug issue of one tenant while other tenants are being used. Tenant level auditing. As per jaspersoft, enabling auditing will have performance hit on the server. As we do not have option to enable tenant level auditing, it is enabling auditing on all tenants and causing performance issues.,8,Flexibility to define own domains from the UILess time to develop reportsIncreased customer satisfactionApplication more competitive,Jaspersoft Premium Support (No annual case limit),This definitely makes an end user's options flexible as per their need, instead of enforcing the use of specific OS, servers, data sources and architecture.,Multi-tenancy makes the application maintenance easy with just one common DB and website instead of having one database and one website for each customer / tenant.,SSRS,3,Vendor implemented,4,Online training Self-taught,4,YES.

For instance, either via iframe, or directly. Jaspersoft Reporting tool provides some wonderful visual components. Every time I have contacted Jaspersoft customer support to addition assistance, I have been pleased with the level of support I have received.,My biggest issue is with the TIBCO ETL tool which I have used to transform data into a data warehouse. Specifically project files, which are stored in a SVN repository, save information about that SVN repository. This becomes a problem when backing up / restoring / transferring projects between repositories.,7,Currently these features are developing which use Jaspsersoft Reporting have not gone to general release. Our preliminary finding from our beta group have them wanting more! So we are on the right track there. We have found that templating our similar reports / visualizations have reduced development time.,Jaspersoft Standard Support or Professional Standard Support for AWS (12 annual cases) Jaspersoft Community,Depends at which level of platform support we are looking at. Front end support we want a dynamic interface that can be shown on multiple screen sizes and devices - which is extremely important. At this time multiple data source support is not a high priority but maybe in the future.,Multi-tenancy is extremely important. We cannot function without this. This goes towards security of the data when working with personal information.,Tableau Desktop,7,Implemented in-house,7,Online training Self-taught,5,Yes I would.,No, I have not engaged with this program.Jaspersoft - 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.,5,9,8JaspersoftOLAP reporting is very functional, flexible and efficient.

TIBCO Jaspersoft Review: "Embedded BI for All"

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.
