Jaspersoft, maker of business intelligence (BI) software, today announced the availability of Jaspersoft Business Intelligence 4.7.
Reports generated by JasperReports Server now allow even casual users to interact with more of their data. Jaspersoft's open source business model and zero-cost per-user licensing fees make interactive reporting affordable for even the largest reporting projects. Further improvements in Jaspersoft 4.7 include direct native connectivity to big data sources and expanded mobile device support.
Jaspersoft 4.7 comes with the following:
- Interactive Reporting for Everyone: Jaspersoft 4.7 delivers self-service capabilities for production reporting environments with a complete open source-based, interactive reporting and analysis solution. The new release reduces report development costs through built-in interactivity, enabling new levels of personalization of pixel-perfect, print-ready and Web-based reports. The enhanced report functionality lets users move, hide, sort, and filter their data without the help of a BI expert or the need to export to Microsoft Excel.
- Expanded Mobile Access for Android and iOS Devices: Jaspersoft 4.7 expands the open source mobile BI solution for iOS with the new native Android application and software development kit (SDK). Jaspersoft's complete mobile solution allows developers to embed BI in their native mobile smartphone applications while also offering full-featured tablet-based, touch-screen BI through a mobile browser.
- Real-time Reporting and Analysis for MongoDB: Jaspersoft has enhanced its native MongoDB connector to enable real-time reporting and analysis of Web-scale application data. The connector provides a direct link connecting JasperReports Server and the MongoDB source data, thus enabling de-serialized, filtered data to be reported on and analyzed. This extends the largest selection of native big data source connectors in the industry, including Hadoop, Cassandra, CouchDB, and many others.
- Robust Scheduling for Enterprise Requirements: Jaspersoft 4.7 delivers sophisticated, enterprise-class report scheduling, providing assured report delivery and programmatic control of report schedules for tailored report management and execution. The new robust scheduling features help ensure data is accessible anywhere, anytime.
"Up until now, reports with a wide-scale distribution, such as transaction reports or client statements, have been largely static. Jaspersoft 4.7 begins a revolution by making full-featured, interactive reporting affordable. Now even casual users can interact with the data in those reports using our simple, powerful, affordable report server," said Brian Gentile, CEO of Jaspersoft, in a statement. "Jaspersoft customers can now create competitive advantage by offering superior customer service through advanced reporting and analytics, whether they deliver via the Web, mobile devices, or embedded in their applications. Jaspersoft continues to make powerful BI usable and affordable at Web-scale, for anyone at anytime."
