  • So, now we’re going to see a demo of Jaspersoft 5, our most recent product release. You’ll see many of the capabilities we’ve discussed already. The thing to note about version 5 is that it highlights the strength of our architecture and vision. When creating this product we had the vision to deliver the power of what today you can only get in a desktop visualization tool like Tableau or QlikTech but to do so completely within a browser. Whereas Tableau and Qlik require the user to create the visualizations using a desktop tool, Jaspersoft allows the user to do that from a browser. There are many benefits to this approach. Apart from avoiding the obvious issue of having to manage desktop software, this approach allows BI Builders to embed this functionality inside their internal and commercial applications, portals or websites. This is not possible with the desktop tools. Now, let’s see the product in action.
  • To truly deliver integrated intelligence within a software application or business process, there are 3 primary requirements: 1. must be a simple self-service reporting and analysis environment that allows any user profile, from an executive to data analyst, to get the information they need; 2. must be easy to embed and integrate within the application or process, enabling different techniques to liberate the data generated by the application and encouraging widespread use of it as information; and 3. must be affordable even on a large scale, so there is no question about the value of delivering more information to any user who could benefit.Jaspersoft has become the intelligence inside tens of thousands of software applications and business processes globally, because we’ve set the standard for highly-embeddable and affordable self-service BI. Each day, our software touches millions of people and enables them to make decisions faster using timely, actionable data. Our customers have made Jaspersoft the Intelligence Inside.
  • ProductArchitectureOur product functionality and architecture enables Information Workers to get the answers they need inside their preferred app or on their favorite device. Our platform scales architecturally and economically to reach everyone.Guaranteed successful implementations rely on more than just product and architecture. They rely on a company with experience, 10 Years of Embedded BI expertise, that provides proven and relevant:Services * Provided expert support in 100’s of implementations WW * customized packages for on-boarding, integration, upgrading etcTraining * In house and On line training portal from experienced Jaspersoft or learning partnersPartners * Comprehensive WW partner ecosystem providing expert and domain specific PS and trainingSupport * Global 24/7 support * Support packages to fit your requirements * Subscription pricing not only flexible but ensures we are focused not just on selling but successful implementationCustomer Base * product direction and service and training offerings based on 1000 of customers feedbac * Customer advisory board, WW user group and local user groups
  • Users can also create and interact with beautiful dashboards that include charts, widgets, maps etc. These are perfect for executives or managers to get a quick understanding of the business and it’s KPIs.
  • And data analysts or power users can do analysis using traditional OLAP or using interactive visualizations to slice and dice their data to get insights into their business
  • What is unique about Jaspersoft is that all the functionality we provide can be used to power the Intelligence Inside any application, portal or website. As an example, Tata, the Indian technology giant, uses Jaspersoft to power their Mosaic product which allows media executives to track their media assets from creation all the way through to distribution. As you can see from the screen shot, this product looks nothing like the Jaspersoft product or what you’d think of as a typical business intelligence product. And that’s the point of the Intelligence Inside. You want business users to use reporting, dashboards and analytics in the context of their preferred application, without having to go to a separate BI system. Another example here is from eBuilder, a cloud based application, which helps companies to automate their business processes like travel and expenses, procurement, order fulfillment and After Sales management. All of the reporting and analysis is powered by Jaspersoft. The screen shot here shows the After Sales dashboard where managers can track the performance of different fulfillment centers geographically in delivering product to customers. Finally, the example here of Virgin Money’s non-profit Giving site which is a multi-tenant SaaS application powered by Jaspersoft that allows charities to track and optimize their fund raising activities. All of JasperReports Server capabilities are available here from interactive reporting through to ad hoc query, report and analysis. All, branded to look like the Virgin Money website.
  • We are able to do all of this because of our world-class BI platform. The platform is 100% open web standards based, from the backend Java server to the CSS (Cascading Style Sheet)-driven, HTML5 user interface. The product has a full suite of capabilities from reporting to dashboards, analysis and visualization that can be viewed and interacted with in a browser or on a tablet or mobile phone. Underlying these capabilities is a columnar-based in-memory engine that allows the user to work with an in-memory data set for faster performance. The engine is intelligent enough to push expensive aggregations down to the underlying database when that makes sense, for example if you have a high-performance analytic database like Amazon’s Redshift. We have a business metadata layer that allows BI Builders to define more business-user friendly data objects that abstract from the underlying data complexity. This layer can connect directly to our data connectors. Alternatively, customers can leverage our powerful data integration layer that allows them to extract, load and transform data to create a data mart or a data warehouse. If they don’t want to move the data but still need to merge multiple data sources they can use our data virtualization layer which allows them to federate queries across multiple data sources so that they look like a single source to the business user. The data connectivity layer provides access to any data source, from relational databases to Big Data stores like Hadoop and NoSQL stores like MongoDB and Cassandra, as well as other data stores like files. All of this power is exposed through an extensive set of APIs from HTTP to SOAP and REST-based web services that allows BI Builders to integrate the server capabilities into their applications.
