Jaspersoft, a provider of business intelligence software, has introduced JasperReports Server Professional, a centrally-managed and secure reporting server for scheduling and distributing interactive reports. According to Jaspersoft the new solution will enable customers 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 BI providers.
JasperReports Server Professional is a "highly functional" solution that can meet the needs of many users, but at a much lower cost than comparable products, Mike Boyarski, senior product marketing manager, tells 5 Minute Briefing. The entry level price and unlimited use server functionality is also expected to be highly appealing to JasperReports community members which now number about 160,000, offering them richer functionality and step up from the community edition, he adds.
In addition to offering unlimited reports for unlimited users without per user pricing, additional key benefits of JasperReports Server Professional include the ability to schedule thousands of reports on a single server; secure report access to easily integrate with existing identity management directories; and simplified report drill-down design and integration.
