Jaspersoft 5 Delivers Improved Data Exploration

Business intelligence software provider Jaspersoft has released Jaspersoft 5. The new release bolsters the analytic capabilities of Jaspersoft’s reporting and analytics platform and introduces data exploration via intuitive, HTML5-based visualization.

Additional features include built-in data virtualization to give end users and application developers the ability to easily combine disparate data sources into a single metadata view without the complexity of ETL or a data warehouse; a columnar in-memory engine to enable terabyte-scale analytics against any type of data, including relational, OLAP and big data sources; and advanced reporting functionality in the form of personalization that extends beyond column sorting, filtering, table formatting to conditional formatting and cross-tab sorting for greater power and visual impact to reports.

The solution also provides expanded OLAP analysis that allows organizations to maintain or extend their existing data investments by broadening XMLA data access to include support for Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services; improved administration with server monitoring and diagnostic tools to improve visibility and responsiveness to system health issues and usage patterns; and PHP access to REST APIs for extending BI functionality to popular web-based applications.

“Our server is built with pure Java and open standards, and our architecture enables access to virtually any data source as well as easy deployment on-premises and in the cloud,” says Brian Gentile, Jaspersoft CEO. “In total, we provide a web-scale reporting and analytics platform that can be delivered inside of any business application or process, on all major devices, and at a fraction of the cost of any major competitor.”
