Quotes From Members Comparing TIBCO Jaspersoft vs. Windward Studios

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
The functionality we get back from Windward for the price paid, makes it impossible for us to build something in-house.We only started really thinking about the licensing and pricing well after the proof of concept was successful. If we had started to take this into consideration earlier, we might have made different decisions, including technically. The licensing model influences the architecture of the different systems. Because we pay per engine, we cannot (economically) separate different engines with different functions within one back-end system. We need to centralize the document generation. It would be easier for the architecture have a “pay per project/product” license.We negotiated our prices many years ago, and while they go up a little bit here and there, they've been pretty steady.For what you're getting, it's an extremely good value.It is absolutely worth the value. They have flexibility, depending on what you're looking for from a buying standpoint. The current pricing models are quite flexible, with the ability to use it on an as-needed basis, or to get a perpetual license that covers a customer that might have extensive needs. I think it's pretty good.CapEx fits our requirements, OpEx is higher due to the 20% service and maintenance cost, where we normally pay 15%.​They are fair and flexible. They are willing to work with your current architecture to make sure you have the best deal.​I can't advise anybody about pricing and licensing, but it was competitive. A lot of things we did look at were all volume-based, so it was a case of you buy a license to generate this many reports a year, and that's not something that I'm particularly interested in because it doesn't give you any idea - if we have future growth, or if we have a lean year - for budgeting reasons it's more difficult. With Windward it's a straight out license fee, whether we generate one page or we generate a million, it makes no difference.

Overview
OverviewJasperSoft is one of the most widely deployed business intelligence (BI) suites in the world, mostly due to its cost effectiveness. JasperSoft has an open-source codebase which allows it to be easily tailored to the needs of different clients, and big data reporting can be used with or without extract, transform,and load (ETL). It also possesses a pay-per-hour model, which can result in cost-savings if used correctly. JasperSoft has a number of pre-built templates for reporting to help make development of reports go quickly without the need for the end user to have IT experience. The dashboard features a drag-and-drop designer, which helps workers better visualize the data. It allows various kinds of data to be visualized including OLAP, relational, and other sources by using HTML5 to create interactive charts. JasperSoft also offers interactive maps and widgets for mobile devices, allowing for easy consumption of data when away from the desktop. The mobile devices also have customizable drag-and-drop dashboards. The columnar engine helps aggregate data, which speeds response times for enterprises that have to deal with large and complex data. The United States Marine Corps needed access to metrics in order to better run the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. These metrics included: scheduling the availability of operational resources, identifying risks associated with implementing IT changes, and data for ongoing root analysis. With the IT Service Management application through JasperSoft, the ability for the base to provide response to its user communities has been greatly enhanced. NOTE: Jaspersoft was acquired in April of 2014 by Tibco, makers of the BI solution, Spotfire. As of the most recent update to this page, seen in the date below this description, Jaspersoft is still supported and sold as a BI software solution. Compare JasperSoft with other business intelligence solutions using our Business Intelligence SmartAdvisor.

The Windward Solution is ideal for commercial software (OEM), system integrator and enterprise developers who need to add Reporting and Document Generation functionality to desktop, online, SaaS or mobile products. The .NET or Java report engines can be quickly integrated in as few as 14 lines of code, meaning faster time to market. Windward enables design without restrictions through AutoTag, the Office-based template design tool. Any user can create and rapidly revise templates, freeing up dev resources.
