Overall Satisfaction

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.
  • 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
JasperSoft stacks up well against Information Builders. In my experience, the report development aspect of Jaspersoft is preferred to that of Information Builders.
We are happy with the product and are increasing our investment in its use.
In my opinion, the product is a functionally rich product that will meet the business intelligence needs of any organization.
