Jaspersoft Enterprise Edition

Overall Satisfaction with TIBCO Jaspersoft

Jaspersoft Enterprise Edition requires the ability for customers to report and view dashboards that are easily created, personally designed, with a broad array of layouts and customizable to display key performance indicators and metrics. Given that this requirement is a core offering of the solution, it’s essential that it is fully embedded and white-labeled (ie. No branding to indicate what product is being used within another application. Jaspersoft Enterprise Edition is capable of that. However, there are some limitations.
  • Easy to use
  • Renders graphics nicely
  • Embeds well into other applications
  • Poor at scaling to large volumes of data
  • Pricing model could be better
  • Performance slows dramatically as you reach limits of data handling
  • Allowed us to have a modern reporting solution quickly and easily
  • Gave our solution a slick and modern look
  • Will be a painful migration to a new platform now that we outgrew it
Very cost-effective and was easy to work with. However as I’ve said before, when your data volumes grow significantly over the years it’s important to plan what your needs will be. Twice in my career, we chose Jaspersoft Enterprise Edition and both times outgrew it in under 6 years. Maybe that’s a fair amount of time on one platform and I’m sure this is a good problem to have.

As I said earlier, Jaspersoft Enterprise Edition is a powerful reporting tool and really gives a complete capability to meet your demanding customers reporting needs. The ability to use visuals and graphics and the really slick rendering capability (ie building out of bubble charts or pie charts is really well done). Scalability is an issue but it could take years until you got that threshold.
Jaspersoft Enterprise Edition was a good partner and we got very good value for the money. Our prospects would nickname us the “bubble chart guys” because we started every sales demo with a powerful executive bubble chart rendered in Jaspersoft Enterprise Edition, which allowed us to distinguish ourselves from all competition. So in that case Jaspersoft Enterprise Edition gave us the edge.
Startups with fewer clients or smaller data sets would be well served to adopt Jaspersoft Enterprise Edition as their report tool to embed in their solution. Its ability to provide a strong customer experience, flexible report filters and configurations, and easily deployable are strong benefits. However, as your customer base and data demands grow, it is possible that you will need to evaluate and select another vendor in the future as performance can slow to unacceptable levels.
