Overall Satisfaction with TIBCO Jaspersoft

  • We embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our commercial application(s) that we sell to customers
[We are] Providing a variety of reports on our high-availability transactional service.
  • Support team is responsive.
  • Product has been easy to integrate into our AWS cloud stack.
  • We were able to get the product to render the reports we need.
  • API documentation is confusing and often missing key details and usage examples.
  • We have struggled to find a happy place around performance, and diagnosing performance issues. We are now considering whether to ditch Jaspersoft altogether due to its apparent difficulties in rendering large reports.
  • The company made the extra logging diagnoses a paid extra feature... we should not have to pay extra to diagnose performance problems in the product.
It's frankly been a struggle to get the integration working how we want to. The combination of poor developer documentation and lack of apparent diagnosis tools has made it hard to do basic things. We wanted to:

  1. fully automate report uploading
  2. fully automate provisioning of the organization and basic user account
We invested a huge amount of time in figuring out (1) due to the poor docs, and basically gave up on (2).
Yes, it's important that we be able to run on different platforms and use different data sources.
We never figured this out. We ended up using a token-based authentication scheme.
SSRS: seems to be more performant at this point but we're still trying to figure it out
Rendering reports on smaller datasets
