Overall Satisfaction with TIBCO Jaspersoft

  • TIBCO Jaspersoft allows you to embed reports into your own application, which gives users the feeling they are using a single product.
  • TIBCO Jaspersoft Studio allows for more advanced report development, such as adding subreports, drilldown to detail reports, images, page headers, page footers, maps, and more.
  • TIBCO's Jaspersoft Domain Designer is very easy to use and navigate.
  • Ad-hoc views and reports don't allow for the capability to enter or modify SQL being used. Users always have to rely on how the domain is built.
  • Ad-hoc views and reports don't have the functionality to automatically remove duplicate rows.
  • If a domain is extremely large and contains several derived tables, slowness is a big issue. Not only is there slowness in the domain designer, but there is slowness when using said domain as the data source of an ad-hoc view.
As I believe Business Objects was no longer being supported, we moved onto using TIBCO Jaspersoft. We have used Jaspersoft to create new reports, as well as, convert existing reports from different platforms, such as BO. We selected Jaspersoft as it seemed like a good fit that would allow our clients to easily access the information in their database.
TIBCO Jaspersoft is well suited for users who are not too technical. These users are able to easily drag and drop domain fields from their database to create friendly table reports. Users can easily add filters to their reports which allows for reusability. On the other hand, if a user is looking to add information that has many-to-many relationships, duplicates will appear. Having duplicates in an ad-hoc view and not being able to easily remove them is a big issue for many of our clients.
