Jaspersoft is not good for Dashboards and complex ad-hoc reports

    Posted 11-14-2017 10:16 AM

    After creating a basic dashboard showing all Resources filtered by resource managers on an ad hoc view and then linking it to another ad hoc view to show projects and status report Green/Red/yellow counts on a very basci crosstab I feel like Jaspersoft is not the right tool for dashboards and Clarity is lacking a major feature "Good Reporting" 

     

    Does anybody have delightful experience with Jasper dashboards or complex ad-hoc reports where the report always loads within 5 seconds?

     

    My simple dashboard takes more than 5 seconds to load, 10 seconds plus honestly. I can build a custom report and make it load within 3-5 seconds but I will call that developer expertise by leveraging SQL best practices,etc.

    I am editing a custom Domain and 20-30 minutes of structuring an formatting is done. I am happy and ready to save. suddenly it says I missing some fields and joins which are already in use. I never removed those and suddenly the Domain designer deleted about 5-6 tables from selection and now wants me to start over.

     

    I am just waiting for a desktop based domain designer which just works. I have spent 10 hours already to create just a simple Project set. the designer ruined my work 3 times and I had to start all over. My real estimate is 3 hours

    take a look at powerBI or tableau, that's probably what you want and both work fine with CA PPM

    Business Intelligence and Analytics | Tableau Software

    Yes, we are already using Tableau as Jasper did not look right as soon as it was launched. There are obvious reasons why one would not want to pay for different tools and Skillsets

    Hi Suhas,

    could you share how you access clarity data (whether transactional db or dwh) from tableau?

    Do you connect directly to the respective database / separate schema / or is there a way to re-use domains from JasperSoft - e.g. via Rest v2 API?

    I'd be grateful about your feedback.


    Best regards,
    Sebastian

    Hi Suhas,

    I have been working with Jaspersoft in various customer projects in the last 2 1/2 years and I have to admit that the performance is not always optimal.

    Still, has I see several customers running their complex reports in a reasonable time, I am convinced that with enough hardware you can get Jaspersoft fast enough.

    More relevant is the issue of the web based domain designer: It has not really changed the last years and could profit from further usablitiy improvements.

    Apart from this, I have used it to create several nice data cubes and cannot say that it is not possible to work with - of course some training makes sense to avoid a steep learning curve.

     

    Any insights into other reporting platforms are welcome

     

    Regards

    Georg
