Overall Satisfaction with TIBCO Jaspersoft

  • We 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
Reporting component as part of the BizFlow application. Used for reports, dashboards, and other charts.
  • Pixel perfect reports
  • Highly customized reports using open source technology
  • Easy to use dashboard and ad hoc report builder
  • Repository interface is a flat structure. Folder or other structure would be best for numerous reports for several different departments.
  • Should come fully equipped with all available properties for High Charts
  • Better user guides that includes more information about configurations for styles, conditions, etc. that aren't covered in the guide.
As an integrated component of BizFlow, Jaspersoft allows for seamless integration. This has reduced the need to have as stand alone application. Thus, reducing the time needed to setup as well as maintain account related processes.
Very important. Long term goal is to integrate with other data sources for a common reporting tool. Thus, reducing the cost of multiple reporting tools and support personnel.
Important. Allows for integration with multiple data sources.
Pentaho and Cognos have been used and evaluated. Jaspersoft is similar to Pentaho, but has better support forums to answer questions. Cognos is slightly more intuitive, but at a higher licensing cost.
Well suited for most applications. TIBCO offers other applications that can expand the functionality.
