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,9Jaspersoft -- 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,8Jasper 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. This is easy to learn.,Got access to customer success manager to escalate cases.,1000,10,Develop OOB reports Admins can create their OOB domains Users can create their own reports using existing domains,........ ........ ........,........ ........ ........,5,Yes,Product Features Product Usability,......,Yes,Yes,We had multiple support engineers worked on a ticket across different timezones,Building domains Creating adhoc views and reports Scheduling reports,FTP configurations,Yes, but I don't use it,5Jaspersoft - 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.,5,9,8Jaspersoft BI, Powerful GI Suite with Low TCOJaspersoft's suite of report writing, report distribution and ETL have provided my clients with a solution that is both easy to use and powerful, allowing for rapid deployment of basic reports and extensive flexibility for advanced configuration, Data Warehouse development and reports and OLAP analysis. The iReport report writer allows both graphical report design and development and direct code writing allowing me to quickly train users on how to graphically design and build reports using the drag and drop user interface and rapidly develop custom components. The breadth of report development features is massive including; Drill down report links, sub-reports, built in extensible graphs and maps of all kinds, a vast array of data sources, easy passing of variables from and to sub-reports, adding custom code to components using Java, custom style development and assignment. iReport is internally integrated with Jasperserver allowing easy report deployment to the enterprise report and analysis portal. The Mondrian OLAP Work Bench is a fantastic tool for designing and deploying OLAP cubes for online analysis. The graphical UI is easy to use and allows for advance configuration of Cubes and their components. With a built in MDX designer, Cube design and query result can be tested in one place. Cubes and queries can be directly uploaded to the Jasperserver portal which provides a visually attractive and feature rich Analysis View feature for OLAP analysis. Analysis Views on the report server can be drilled to from reports designed in iReport providing a very powerful view of information The JasperETL tool, which is based on the Talend* ETL suite, is so powerful that we use it both for Data Warehouse population but also for Enterprise Application Integration projects as well. From basic JDBC data pulls to transactional data layers, to complex transformation to Data Marts and FACT Tables this tool does it all. We have successfully deployed ETL projects that pull and combine data from MSSQL, PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle, Flat File, Web Services, LDAP, Spreadsheets,MDM and REGEX files to produce rich and effective reporting Data Marts and Topics. I cannot say enough about this suite and it's power and flexibility. Jasperserver is the web-app based reporting portal that acts as the hub of the Jaspersoft reporting suite. The server is easily integrated with your LDAP enabled directory services and can quickly be configured for SSL or be placed behind your Apache HTTP server. Reports and OLAP Analysis developed using iReport or OLAP Workbench can be uploaded directly to the server. The server provides for iReport Reports, Mondrian OLAP analysis Views as well as views on any Cube that is XML/A enabled, Ad-hoc reports, Static Content Deployment (PDF, XLSX, DOCX, HTML and much more). In addition powerful Dashboards that combine multiple reports can easily be created using the GUI provided in the Jasperserver portal. Access can be controlled through users and groups which can be directly integrated into your corporate Directory Services (Active Directory, OpenLDAP, etc) and data can be filtered within reports based on those assignments. The server can be extended into clusters for large enterprise deployments. The portal can be customized extensively from basic styling and branding to full JSP/Spring development of new pages and functionality. This is hands down the best report server I have worked with. Jaspersoft has moved to Jaspersoft Studio as it's preferred report writer and will be the only report writer supported fro new features. Bug fixes and technical support for iReport will be supported through 12/31/2015. Built on top of the popular Eclipse Integrated Development Environment, Jaspersoft Studio delivers a sophisticated graphical reporting experience with extensible component configuration for advanced report development. Features include: Visual drag and drop designer for rapid report development Easy access to Report Elements and Tools within report designer Large inventory of Report Elements and Tools for rapid development of visually rich reports Complete set of charts for dynamic visual presentation of reporting data Integrated preview allows viewing report results as you design Built-in Expression Editor with Syntax Highlighter Easy Access Data Explorer Extensible for Custom Report Plug-ins Dynamic and Cascading Report Parameters Vast array of configurable Data Sources Extensible properties for exporting formatting and formulas to Excel Extensible properties for exporting PDF formatting Develop your own styles for consistent look and feel across all reporting elements Version control to GIT,SVN and more Export to PDF, HTML, XHTML, XLS, RTF, DOCX, Text, CSV, OpenOffice, XML, PNG Full integration with Jasperserver including publishing, server explorer and resource editing,While many of the advanced report writing features of iReport are available through the GUI, customization requires knowledge of Java. We often need to produce reports that are exportable to Spreadsheets with formulas and formatting intact. As consultants we can produce this quickly for our clients, but the GUI tools are not as friendly as they could be. While Jaspersoft does offer the Talend Integration Server which is a web-app and execution server of it's own, the basic ETL tool requires some sophisticated knowledge to deploy scheduled jobs on Linux or Windows servers. Managing the libraries and status of the jobs can become non trivial as they grow in number. Finding qualified consultant like RLWilliams Consulting can be difficult.,10,,9,100,1,Enrich traditional financial reporting with operational performance Graphics for a complete view of organizational performance. Combine Purchasing/Maintenance Cost data with IT Infrastructure performance to enhance cost structure analysis and reporting. Combine external Demographic information with internal Sales/Marketing/CRM data for relative performance across key sales performance factors.,Financial and Accounting Reporting and Analysis Consolidated Sales/Maketing/CRM IT Service Management IT Infrastructure Performance.,Vastly improve delivery of Line of Business Reporting. Cross Application Data Consolidation provided analysis views that was believed to be unavailable to the organization. Consolidation of MIB,Syslog,Application Log and Ticketing data provided in depth analysis of IT infrastructure performance.,Yes,Price Product Features Product Usability Analyst Reports,Most of our client know that they want a reporting and BI solution that can be used enterprise wide for both functionality gaps in existing systems but also enterprise wide consolidated data, they do not spend enough time putting together functional requirements. Understanding the critical needs of information consumers allows for a rapid package selection process based on enumerated tactical and strategic reporting, IT Infrastructure and Data Warehouse requirements.,Yes,8,No,In a complex non-standard deployment of Jasperserver in a fully Centos environment with a remote MySQL server acting as the Jasperserver Application Database, Jaspersoft was able to rapidly assist with MySQL configuration issues that caused corruption in the database and assist with a complete recovery.,YesJaspersoftOLAP reporting is very functional, flexible and efficient. Large volumes of data (millions of rows) can be processed quickly. This allows marketing analysts to slice and dice the data to support decisions about marketing campaigns.,Dashboards are cumbersome to develop. Technical support is hit and miss.,8,,10,Markets have provided numerous examples of where OLAP analysis led to modifications of marketing campaigns that directly affected the bottom line. Just last week, one marketer reported a change that is now expected to yield a $70-80k improvement over the next 12 months. The largest was a reported $400k improvement several years ago. Field managers have reported that they are now more inclined to act on data now that graphical drill-down reports are available.,There are two primary uses: 1) OLAP analysis of marketing efforts, 2) general reporting in a variety of web applications.,No,Implemented in-house,9,In-person training,9,,No,3,YesJasperReports Server and iReportPixel-perfect Report Building. Embeddable report server. Connect to multiple datasources. Strong community. Great technical support.,Steep learning curve. Arcane user interface. Only 1 datasource per report.,9,Increased customer satisfaction. Wow-factor. Increased product sales.,10,10Jaspersoft provides the tools your clients will love.Jaspersoft provides our users with a very robust adhoc reporting engine. It has been the #1 requested feature by our clients. Our users demand control over their data and reporting resources. With Jaspersoft they are able to have the level of control they desire. Jaspersoft has a slight learning curve, but the documentation available is very robust. Nearly every question I've had, I was able to answer within minutes by simply reading the documentation. The guides are clear, concise and go into a level of detail that surpasses any other reporting solution I've tested. The Jaspersoft support team is amazing. I've had a few issues during the single-sign-on integration within our environment. All of my support questions have been answered, and all done so in a very timely manner. Every case I've opened has been initially addressed within minutes of me creating request and all have been followed through to 100% satisfaction. JasperStudio 5.5, with the integration into Eclipse, has received very positive feedback from my team. The report development environments have evolved significantly over the last year and the changes have definitely been for the best.,We integrate Jaspersoft into our own web portal. I know recent releases have focused on making this task easier, but it's still not a flawless process. The single-sign-on portion, in our circumstance, requires custom Java code to work. I've had a few headaches over the last year with upgrading the environments. They release new software versions relatively often. It's quite a hassle to keep all of the servers updated with the latest and greatest due to the somewhat complicated procedure of upgrading. Unless you wipe your server and start over, it isn't a point and click procedure.,10,When we demo our Jaspersoft environment to potential clients, their eyes light up and they sit up in their chairs a bit more. A lot of our meetings have ended with with the client very interested in our product due to Jaspersoft. Our existing clients have been very satisfied with the adhoc features of Jaspersoft. We've been able to provide them better access to their data on their terms instead of ours. Of course this turns into a huge win for us. We've always used SQL Server Reporting Services to deliver our reports to our clients. Converting to Jaspersoft has allowed us to generate the reporting layer that our clients demand. They no longer feel like they are settling for what we offer.,10,10,Yes,Yes,Our implementation is somewhat unique within the Jaspersoft world, being that we are primarily a .NET shop and our host application is written entirely in .NET and C#. Our authentication model passes back secure tokens using custom java classes from Jasper to our .NET web application. We had several pain points supporting this after a few version updates from Jaspersoft. I was able to create a case with them and they went above and beyond what I expected for helping me out. Essentially, it was our problem due to the way we chose to implement Jaspersoft, but they still did everything they could to ensure that our issue was resolved. I was able to work with several Jaspersoft team members, including the Jasper developer that initially assisted us in writing our Java custom security class. In the end, our problem was solved and we were able to test and implement the latest version of Jaspersoft and are running with no problems.Jaspersoft is "Not the Droid You're Looking For"Adhoc reporting is easy to implement and works well. Report scheduling is simple and flexible. The new Adhoc OLAP option looks promising. The updated UI is much improved over previous versions.,Jaspersoft seriously needs some quality control on their products. An "Enterprise" application should not be so buggy. I often feel like we are their beta-testers rather than paying customers. It is extremely embarrassing when my customers attempt to run a report and end up with a Java error stack on their screen instead. While Jaspersoft has made improvements in catching certain errors and providing an "oops" screen, we still see Java error dumps on a regular basis. Jaspersoft's technical support has been little help for anything other than the most basic of issues. Most problems are instantly categorized as "Defect/Enhancement submitted" with no solution offered.,1,Jaspersoft has decreased our productivity due to the excessive time we've had to spend troubleshooting errors. We have seen positive results from our data warehousing and reporting efforts. Dashboards have allowed us to communicate important business insights throughout our company.,5Review from a beginner level userThis is an excellent product for implementing business solutions.,iReport for designing the reports Generate PDF reports Create plugin modules in Java that create the data you need for the report,Dashboards could have more interactive features Support for product Connections with DBs,7,Better customer service Clear Business vision Negative- Need some time to train users,Pentaho,5An etl developer's perpective of Jaspersoft.We use Jaspersoft to provide reports to our customers using data from our operational and data warehouse systems. We also use Jasper ETL for small scale extracts.,Jaspersoft allows for us to present critical business information to our customers in an easy to understand format. Jasper ETL allows for us to create quality etl processes in a relatively short amount of time.,We have had some challenges with the OLAP part of the tool and would like to see improvements there. During a current upgrade we have encountered issues with the product based on bugs. With this in mind, a little more QA on the product before it getting released would be appreciated.,9,Our use of the tool has elevated the level of interest of our customers in the way the information is being presented. Our organization has an added emphasis on business intelligence and our use of Jaspersoft has allowed for us to meet these goals in a more timely manner. We do encounter and occasional glitch in the product that has us needing to find a work-around in order for us to meet a defined business requirement.,Information Builders,10Happy with my experiences thus far with Jaspersoft!A easy and efficient way to allow outside customers to utilize BI Offerings to help them get at their information more easily. We have a series of reports that now live in the hands of our clients that can be easily updated and improved. There server product is easily configurable with our company's UI that allows our customer to easily move between the software. The overall general maintenance of the system on a day to day basis is a lot easier that previously used tools.,iReport and the ability to style and maintain correct outputs throughout all of the types. I realize iReport is being replaced and hope that Studio is better at formatting. Allowing for customized code within Jasper Server is difficult to be able to upgrade as quickly as Jasper comes out with improvements.,Increased employee efficiency, as it allows our clients to be more self-sufficient. Our clients are able to get to data quickly and have only has positive things to say about the tool. Overall customer satisfaction, as our clients are happier with Jaspersoft than our previous toolset. In the past we have utilized more internal applications where we have had to manually send data to out clients. Although the tool itself allows us to do much more then we used to we have noticed it takes longer to produce a product then before.,10,9Jaspersoft, so easy your stakeholders can use itWe were using Sql Server Reporting Services. Our users wanted more. We took a look at the competitive marketplace, and found Jaspersoft provided a superior product which allowed us to recreate the same reports in about 10% of the time of the original reports, while providing the users additional capabilities to do ad-hoc reports. Wow!,One of the things that we would like to see is the capability to run Jaspersoft within a fully capable .NET stack. Currently Jaspersoft integrates seamlessly into Java-based applications, but it's a little clunky to configure for Microsoft based solutions.,8,We were able to provide users the capabilities to perform some out of the box ad-hoc reports without us having to do custom queries for them. This increased the overall satisfaction for our users and reduced our developer workload from one-off requests.,8Developers view of JaspersoftIt was used as a replacement for Informatica. It was a great way to learn Java and javascript. It saved our company a great deal of money.,Better examples for ETL. Better documentation.,Development of ETL was eventually quicker. It used fewer server resources to run than Informatica.,7,7Moderately satisfied with JasperEase of use. Scheduling reports. New features.,They need to resolve bugs - numerous issues, and the answer I get from support is "that's fixed in the next release". Ad-hoc reporting is so-so, does not work for us.,It is pretty intuitive and easy to figure out, and we have engaged many more people into self-service BI than was possible before, so in that regards it has been a success Integration is also awesome - we have embedded it in 3 separate applications in addition to using the Jasper UI, this has had a big impact,8,7,200My Jaspersoft experienceWe used Jaspersoft to help customers of our software get their data out of the database. We leaned heavily on the ad hoc / self service tools but also did iReport development to that end. As a small software shop we did not use the product much internally, although I did develop a report to help estimate report development time based on various factors.,Ad hoc tool. It really helped our customers become self sufficient. Using iReport and design studio, I never ran across a requirement I couldn't handle. These tools are very feature rich and there are many different ways to leverage them. The community was a very reliable source of information.,The community pages layout was difficult to navigate. The Jaspersoft website as a whole left a lot to be desired. I often found difficult to get what I had assumed would be simple answers. The web interface had limitations with parameters in the version we ran. My understanding is that these were resolved in more current versions.,6,Oracle reports. Business Objects,8My quick and fast experience with JaspersoftWe used Jaspersoft to create PDF Reports that are required by government regulations. The software that require this is an Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems. The reports generated is to show how the physician site has used the software, and what areas were covered by the software.,It can be used to produce nice looking PDF reports It is not too difficult to learn as a start. There is a GUI interface to provide starting point of reports creation It can be quite easily programmed via java "plugins",I think the GUI can be made more intuitive, and it would be helpful to have more tutorials. I did have to spend a few days just to figure it out as I did not find tutorials on it.,7,I used the free version, so obviously the positive side is we did not have to pay Next advantage is you can pick it up relatively fast, even though I think the UI can be much improved. Otherwise creating PDF reports by programming is quite a complicate task, to me anyway,,7Used it at a previous company - Loved it.It was used as a dashboard for presenting data about the Warehouse Control System to leads, managers and executives. It would display product in, product out, jams, errors etc.,Displays relevant knowledge in easy to view form Easy to integrate into other software packages Runs well on Linux, which was a must.,Installation and management of the system was slow to understand initially.,9,,10Easy BIOnline access to reports. Easy integration. Open source. Pixel perfect reports.,Pivots in the open source version. Tabbing Easier customized views.,10,Increase financial reporting efficiency. Quicker budgeting cycles. Access multiple data sources to make use of data.,10

JasperSoft has been amazing. It is well documented, fast, and transparent in how it functions. We have been very confident in JasperSoft in every aspect of our business and offerings where we've used it. On top of that, their improvements to the product have been fantastic. I am really looking forward to seeing where they take their product and how we can leverage that to please our clients.

You are missing some templates and when you are building large amounts of reports it can be tedious. There are problems with Quartz and we got some constant problems with scheduling reports. There are much faster solutions from other companies to built worse looking but with much faster development time.

We've converted our library of reports to use Jaspersoft. Our clients have had a taste of Jaspersoft and we've had very positive feedback from those interactions. Our internal employees have had great success using iReports and JasperStudio to create very robust reports that better show the data our clients expect to see. Overall, our experiences with Jaspersoft have been great and it's proven to be a very good decision for the direction of our business.

We had to stop paying our support to get Jasper management to pay attention to our issues. We are now working closely with them to try to resolve these problems. If they can be resolved to our satisfaction, we will continue with them. If not, we will look elsewhere.

Overall it is a very solid product. If I was a Java developer, I wouldn't think twice about the decision to use Jaspersoft. It is robust and makes reporting a breeze. In a fully Microsoft shop, it is a bit of a harder sale, as the efficiency of having a second web hosting technology is diminished versus sticking to a single platform.

Despite bugginess with new versions that we have experienced, the overall product is solid and flexible. Not all the features advertised work perfectly, but I don't think any one BI platform will be the answer to any mid to large sized company's BI needs.

I would love to work with Jaspersoft again in my career. Outside of everything I had mentioned here it was just fun to work with. For my organization many of the offerings were first time features and it really helped our customers get the most out of their data.
