TIBCO Software Inc., a global leader in integration, analytics and event processing, today announced an array of enhancements to its TIBCO Jaspersoft® 6.2 embedded analytics and reporting software. With new options for graphical and tabular displays, as well as extensions to the Jaspersoft® platform’s popular multi-tenancy support for improved scalability, developers can now build customized reports faster and manage application scalability with greater ease. The latest features were inspired by user-community input and designed to expand embedded analytics capabilities without further taxing IT or development staff.
“Today, applications require graphical and tabular reports that empower end users to quickly find new information and opportunities. Developers want the ability to build information-rich report configurations as quickly and easily as possible, while providing a modern look and feel for their end users,” said Michael O’Connell, chief analytics officer, TIBCO. “We also listened to our customers building SaaS apps; they are looking for more sophisticated multi-tenant scalability to efficiently manage elastic application workloads without incurring added resource expenses. We built that into Jaspersoft 6.2, making this one of the most advanced embeddable multi-tenant reporting and analytics solutions on the market.”
Jaspersoft 6.2 is an embedded business intelligence (BI) platform that delivers timely data and reports within existing applications and business processes, for faster and more informed decision-making. Its new self-service features include a wealth of report customization options for casual data consumers, power users, and IT alike—effectively extending analytics and reporting opportunities across an organization. The new collaborative functionality allows casual users to easily build and customize their own reports. If desired, the same reports can be routed to IT for refinement, where greater complexity can be quickly edited at the API-level. Jaspersoft 6.2 also extends advanced multi-tenant support, which is increasingly critical in Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) models for scaling and managing user bases of all sizes and skill levels.
Other notable features in Jaspersoft 6.2 include:
• Enhanced self-service, new charts, and advanced editing – 36 charts in total (including semi-pie and tree maps) with hundreds of editable properties. New data summary to identify best and worst performers in large datasets.
• Tenant replication – Users can take one instance of Jaspersoft and replicate and partition it for different customers, who will each have their own unique business intelligence (BI) system. Customers can be designated to their own infrastructures and users can propagate updates to selected groups of customers all at once—rather than one by one—with each securely receiving only their own data.
• Tenant master scheduler – Allows users to schedule their own reports, but also allows administrators to manage those reports for distribution across different tenants.
• Support for the latest platforms – Expanded support for big data and NoSQL databases like MongoDB®, Cloudera®, and Apache Spark™ and many other modern platforms that app builders use.
“TIBCO’s analytics offerings enable businesses of all sizes to get the most value out of their data quickly and efficiently,” said O’Connell. “We are constantly working to enhance the Jaspersoft platform and the embedded analytics and reporting experience our customers want. We’re pleased to offer these improvements for our large and vibrant community.”
TIBCO’s software solutions provide customers, both novice and advanced, with a comprehensive business intelligence experience. Jaspersoft 6.2 is perfectly complemented by TIBCO Spotfire®, an agile BI/analytics platform including exploratory, geospatial, predictive, and prescriptive analytics. “Many companies are looking for a robust solution for both their analytics and reporting needs,” O’Connell added. “We are delighted to be able to offer them the tools and guidance to not only accomplish their data discovery goals, but their reporting objectives as well.”
