Jaspersoft announced the release of Jaspersoft 5, the Company's reporting and analytics solution.
According to a release, Jaspersoft 5 offers significantly improved data analysis capabilities, including a new visualization engine that provides business users with a simpler way to interact with data.
The new release bolsters the analytic capabilities of Jaspersoft's reporting and analytics platform and introduces data exploration via HTML5-based visualization.
As described by the Company, additional features include:
-Built-in data virtualization to give end users and application developers alike the ability to combine disparate data sources into a single metadata view without the complexity of ETL or a data warehouse.
-Columnar in-memory engine to enable terabyte-scale analytics against any type of data, including relational, OLAP and Big Data sources.
-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;
-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 web-based applications.
With version 5, Jaspersoft is qualified to deliver self-service reporting and analytics for any user, embedded inside applications or as a stand-alone BI environment, thanks to its 100 percent web-based embeddable architecture and affordable license model, the Company said.
"Customers at every size and scale use Amazon RDS to manage the databases powering their businesses. They all want to make sense of the data they generate," said Raju Gulabani, Database Services VP in Amazon Web Services. "Jaspersoft 5 is a compelling choice for our customers looking for a powerful and cost-effective reporting and analytics environment that is easy to use and embed."
"Capacity, performance and availability reporting of IT infrastructure is critical for our customers because it allows them to proactively resolve issues and to make key business decisions," said Ken Adamson, Senior Director of Product Management, Nimsoft Monitor at CA Technologies.
