Automation of existing reports and dashboards has helped in increased productivity and huge efficiency savings.
I would like to see them make it more user friendly for developers and include the latest charting libraries.
In this age of tools such as Tableau, developers are used to intuitive interfaces to develop the reports. It's always relative!!
Jaspersoft is an open-source product and lot of times you have to rely on the community to answer some of your queries. Product documentation also could be improved for the developer to reduce the learning curve.
I have used it for about 3 years.
I have not encountered any stability issues. The product has been pretty stable.
I have not encountered any scalability issues.
Technical support has been really great. Usually questions get answered within 24 hrs.
We used a home-grown reporting tool that lacked many of the functionalities we needed. We evaluated multiple vendors before selecting Jaspersoft.
Initial setup was pretty straightforward, except the security piece. Over the years, the tool has improved how security is implemented.
It definitely provides value for the money if you have enterprise-wide usage of standard dashboards and charts.
We were looking for a lightweight solution that is easy to implement and that can scale. We looked at several options including MicroStrategy and WebFOCUS. Those tools unfortunately didn't fit the bill.
