Pilot Programs

The Fastest Route to Operational BI

Are you facing time and/or resource constraints and training and prototyping aren’t enough? To get to a working Jaspersoft implementation with the core BI functionality, consider the Jaspersoft Pilot Program.

During a four to six-week onsite engagement, a Jaspersoft professional services consultant will collaborate with your team to develop a working, end-to-end implementation of the Jaspersoft BI platform.

The time that we spent with [the Consultant] was invaluable. We have things actually working now using our reports in a development environment. We are very encouraged and looking forward to implementing changes in our production environment.

The Reporting Pilot – four weeks (16 business days)

  • Install and Configure Jaspersoft Professional Edition
  • Integrate JasperReports Server with LDAP or Active Directory for centralized authentication (unified authorization or SSO implementation may extend the duration of the project)
  • Perform a report specification collection workshop
  • Develop three simple reports either from scratch or from designs of existing reports.
  • Develop one intermediate complexity report either from scratch or from designs of existing reports
  • Create two dashboard-only reports containing a graph
  • Create up to two dashboards combining the reports created during the pilot and mash-up materials already available on the Internet or corporate intranet
  • Create a company-specific theme using the customer's logo and corporate colors
  • Develop up to two domains to create a base semantic layer from the customer's data
