Overall Satisfaction with TIBCO Jaspersoft

  • We embed TIBCO Jaspersoft into our commercial application(s) that we sell to customers
We are a storage company, we do provide unified storage reporting for the set of appliances we provide to the customer. We ship TIBCO Jaspersoft report server to our end user. This provides authentication and authorization to the end user based on the out of the box authentication user spring framework TIBCO Jaspersoft provides on a multi-tenant environment.
  • Ease and adaptability to rebrand it according to your needs. UI is the most feasible to add new pages.
  • The help docs on the community site and support are always prompt. The high charts and its features are really great to provide better visualization.
  • The report studio provides ease to design the reports and implement styles according to the needs.
  • Implementing out of the box authorization for domain more easily. Now we need additional expertise on groovy to accomplish this.
  • Upgrades to be much easier and require less manual work to update all configurational changes.
The reporting is a piece that f cake in jasper studio and in Jasper servers. We ship jasper server as a stand-alone server to our customers. The negative impact is we see at our customer sites are 1) Our automated Upgrade files when there is a large repository with outputs schedule reports. 2) Most of the customers need a point in time reporting which is not there as of now.
  • Jaspersoft Premium Support (No annual case limit)
Like I said previously we've got a multiple data marts (our core product) which handle ETL through our own code which runs on the stand-alone server shipped by TIBCO Jaspersoft The multiple data sourced is kind of useful to us. We’ve multiple DBs in the server of which one is a cached database for the domains.
We don’t directly use the Multitenancy option of Jasper server. This doesn’t fit with the security options we provide in our core product. We provide our organisations as roles to the user. So we internally map the roles with the assignments internally using the built in parameters and provide row level security. However, now we face the issues in the domain for the security, because the organisation assignments can change and that cannot be done automatically for the domain security.
The support and chances of implementing the own branding, as we ship TIBCO Jaspersoft as a stand-alone server we did our own branding for the Jasper server with the login page and the theme, hiding the unnecessary options to the user. The ease of creating canned reports using the studio and easy implementing them on a server. The multi-tenancy was also a point when we evaluated TIBCO Jaspersoft.
Jasperserver best suits when the use is for multiple customers, say an MSP customer wants all his clients accesss their own reporting in that case jasper server suits the best. It also known for its vivid range of graphs/elements available and the option to embed the plugin if necessary.
Your own script for anything to be done on runtime.

Jasper doesn’t support point in time reporting, say I need a scheduled report for every hour for the list of events happened over that hour, I can’t get only get information. Jasper’s default date range doesn’t support that.
