Jaspersoft, provider of the world's most widely used business intelligence (BI) software, today announced the general availability of JasperReports Server Professional, a centrally-managed and secure reporting server for scheduling and distributing interactive reports. Customers are now able to create, deliver and embed interactive reports in a variety of formats for anyone in their organization, for as much as 80% less than prices charged by the traditional, aged titan BI providers.
Extracting information and insights hidden within a company's data and applications requires robust reporting that can process and organize complex data. Business intelligence reporting is the leading method for converting extracted data into intelligent reports that companies can use to improve their business processes and gain a competitive advantage in the market.
"Business reporting continues to be a core process for BI today", said Krishna Roy, enterprise software analyst at The 415 Group, "so it's not surprising to see Jaspersoft reaffirm its commitment to the reporting marketing with this new product, JasperReports Server Professional. The entry level price and unlimited use server functionality gives their large JasperReports community an affordable path to the benefits of a reporting server."
Powered by JasperReports and iReport, the Java reporting software used by millions of people worldwide, JasperReports Server Professional combines the power of a reporting server with advanced Flash-based charts to give large and small organizations a better choice for report production and delivery.
"JasperReports Server Professional is designed to be interactive and powerful, yet extremely cost effective," said Karl Van den Bergh, Jaspersoft Vice President of Product Strategy. "This product gives Jaspersoft a strategic advantage as it enables us to better serve the thousands of organizations using our reporting tools in either a standalone or embedded deployment. Thanks to the integrated platform in this product, customers can easily add additional features such as ad hoc query, in-memory/OLAP analysis, dashboarding and ETL as their business intelligence deployment matures."
JasperReports Server Professional harnesses a powerful reporting platform that is centrally managed and can be used by an unlimited number of users. IT organizations and application developers alike can take advantage of its pure web-based architecture, low-cost, interactive embedded reporting environment and rich visualizations powered by Flash and HTML.
