TIBCO Jaspersoft Review

Report locales provide multi-language support. It should have a report bursting option.

What is most valuable?

  • Profile attributes for implementing multi-tenancy.
  • Report locales for implementation of multi-language support in report development.
  • Subreports, in many reports, to achieve specific report requirements.

How has it helped my organization?

We are using Jaspersoft for report development.

What needs improvement?

There is scope of improvement in terms of:

  • More flexibility for report / dashboards development.
  • A report bursting option.
  • Caching of query input controls that creates problem.
    (In regards to input controls which are based on SQL queries, they show cached data instead of fetching new data every time reports are executed. Input controls still show old data, even if there is a change in data and consequent query results.)
  • Scriptlet execution option before the main data set execution.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used this product for about three and a half years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have not encountered any stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have not encountered any scalability issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

I would give the technical support an 8/10 rating.

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

Prior to Jasperserver, we did use a different solution and decided to switch due to higher licensing costs.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward in terms of server installation, implementing multi-tenancy, multi-language, locales etc.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated another option, namely Cognos, before choosing this product.

What other advice do I have?

It is a good, simple to learn product with some limitations.
