TIBCO Updates Its Jaspersoft Platform

TIBCO Software, a provider of infrastructure and business intelligence software, has released TIBCO Jaspersoft 6.

Powered by the JavaScript framework called Visualize.js, Jaspersoft 6 enables developers to build and embed interactive dashboards directly within their Web applications without relying on iFrames. The results are dashboards that become the fabric of Web applications, delivering richer contextual insights for users across their desktops and mobile devices.

TIBCO brings significant improvements with Jaspersoft 6, upgrading the dashboard designer and providing a pluggable visualization interface for reports, along with an improved native mobile app.

Additional new features include the following:

  • Highly customizable dashboards: Jaspersoft dashboards can be uniquely branded, manually connected to data sources, and filtered to show the most relevant content for each user.
  • Pluggable JavaScript charting component: Report developers can now enrich their reports by plugging in their own charting libraries, such as D3.js, HighCharts, and more, using the new pluggable visualization component for TIBCO Jaspersoft Studio.

"Since launching our popular Visualize.js framework for reports earlier this year, we knew customers would expect the simplicity and flexibility of JavaScript for their dashboards," said Brian Gentile, senior vice president and general manager at TIBCO Analytics, in a statement. "With Jaspersoft 6, developers not only get greater control over their embedded dashboard thanks to the Visualize.js framework, but they can now quickly build and edit them using the new designer."

"The dashboards in Jaspersoft 6 are exactly what we were looking for. The focus on simplicity, ease of access to data, and improved layout will make it easier than ever for our customers to create powerful executive dashboards," said Kenton Gray, chief technical officer at iOffice, in a statement. "Combined with the new REST integration options, we can now customize Jaspersoft for our application to create a seamless user experience."

This latest release comes less than a month after TIBCO released a new version of its Fast Data Platform and three months after the launch of its Engage marketing app.
