“As a Jaspersoft customer, LANDesk intends to put to use the new Flash-based visualization capabilities included with JasperReports Professional,” said Brian Wistisen, Director, Infrastructure Technology, LANDesk. “These new JasperReports Professional features are expected to immediately increase the reporting capabilities in LANDesk's systems management and security solutions.”

"Both large and small organizations are looking to enterprise BI tools to provide the same kind of interactive and dynamic visualization features they experience on the web every day," said Lyndsay Wise, president, WiseAnalytics. "Jaspersoft has a proven track record of providing popular reporting tools and their open source software development model enables them to customize options for a variety of different customers. JasperReports Professional and its new features embody these strengths."

Jaspersoft was founded based on the strength of the popular JasperReports open source project, which was created by Jaspersoft co-founder Teodor Danciu. Today, JasperReports is the world’s most widely used reporting solution. It is easily embedded into any environment and has unprecedented power and flexibility that makes business intelligence accessible for any company or organization.   

“Millions of developers and organizations rely on JasperReports. Today we’re proud to offer our customers and community an even more advanced set of Professional report design and deployment capabilities, perfectly-suited for next-generation web applications,” said Brian Gentile, CEO of Jaspersoft.  “This generation of knowledge workers needs to be engaged with an intuitive web 2.0 experience from report design to application deployment.  Our goal is to provide JasperReports customers with the best tools for data visualization and interactivity on the planet.”

JasperReports has rapidly become the new standard for both production and interactive reporting solutions, usurping legacy tools such as Crystal Reports. Jaspersoft is documenting this transition with customer case studies such as Orange Leap’s decision to swap out Crystal Reports for JasperReports in its custom reporting product, The Guru™.

JasperReports Professional includes a new Professional Edition of iReport, the visual report designer specifically designed for JasperReports. iReport Professional gives developers and report designers pixel-perfect control over the design as well as the look and feel of every report. With iReport Professional, designers can create Flash-based and production-ready reports in virtually any style—dashboards, maps, tables, crosstabs, charts, and gauges.  iReport is a pure Java application, which is available as a rich client or a NetBeans IDE plug-in.

JasperReports Professional users will also get access to the most popular reporting and business intelligence community in the world, with a dedicated community portal at www.jasperforge.org.
