TIBCO Jaspersoft Review

Reports can be exported to many different formats including MS PowerPoint and PDF.


What is most valuable?

  • Embedding the reports within other applications
  • Export functionality: Reports can be exported to many different formats including MS PowerPoint and PDF.

How has it helped my organization?

Automation of existing reports and dashboards has helped in increased productivity and huge efficiency savings.

What needs improvement?

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.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used it for about 3 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have not encountered any stability issues. The product has been pretty stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have not encountered any scalability issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support has been really great. Usually questions get answered within 24 hrs.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used a home-grown reporting tool that lacked many of the functionalities we needed. We evaluated multiple vendors before selecting Jaspersoft.

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup was pretty straightforward, except the security piece. Over the years, the tool has improved how security is implemented.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It definitely provides value for the money if you have enterprise-wide usage of standard dashboards and charts.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

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.

What other advice do I have?

If you have a need for standard dashboards that can be exported to various formats, Jaspersoft will be a good solution to try out. Jaspersoft also provides various integration mechanism (JavaScript libraries and APIs) for embedded BI.

Also, with the latest releases, they are making good progress in the self-service business intelligence space.
