It’s a new year! Now that all the eggnog has been finished, all the presents opened, and the ball has dropped in Times Square, let’s see what this year will bring for us in the BI space. 1. Conversations around interactive data You walk into a meeting, bright and early.
For even small businesses, the magnitude of available data each day is rapidly increasing. If our problem a couple of decades ago was the inability to make good management and technical decisions due to insufficient information, nowadays we can say it’s because there’s too much information.
The new JReport 13 is now available and enhanced with a ton of cool, new features. Visualize data on maps with Geo Analysis! With this latest release, JReport is an even more robust, feature rich, customizable Java embedded BI solution with a slew of innovative analytics and dashboard capabilities. Check out the highlights of JReport 13 enhancements below, and the press release.
Data-driven organizations succeed. A typical sales organization has access to a wealth of actionable information. However, this data is often disparate, residing in different formats and across different sources.

Creating and modifying reports with ad hoc reporting is easy. (Click on the images below to enlarge) Pick a Layout We start by selecting a blank page layout.
The dictionary meaning of the word Ad Hoc is “improvised” or “impromptu”.

Example: Imagine a large financial institution with many financial representatives, each with their own territory.
Your users have varying degrees of technical experience; training them is costly. Challenge: Many organizations have a broad base of users with varying levels of technical expertise — this could range from end users with very basic technical knowledge, to power users with a breadth of experience.
In recent years we’ve seen enormous advancements in Business Intelligence and Data Visualization across all industries with respect to the way that companies view and consume data. Much more information is now readily available, and in many cases, this shift has enabled organizations to make better-informed decisions from their data.
It’s a long-standing tradition at Jinfonet to partake in Oracle’s world famous JavaOne Conference every year — and we’re proud to be able to showcase JReport in one of the largest Java events on the globe.
One of the most common issues that we hear from customers needing an embedded reporting tool for their application is whether it makes more sense to internally develop a “home grown” custom-built solution based on an open source product, or adopt an outside commercial solution to OEM into their product. The answer to that question is not always immediately obvious.
