GSA Chooses JReport for BI Reporting Needs
ROCKVILLE, MD. – August 30, 2011 – Jinfonet Software, a leader in Java reporting software, today announced that US General Services Administration (GSA) has chosen JReport to deliver its business intelligence data.
GSA’s expertise is used to deploy policies and managerial solutions that facilitate the functionality of US principal federal agencies, focusing on products & services, technology, transportation and travel sectors. JReport now provides dynamic reporting for the Federal Acquisition Service (FAS), the branch of GSA responsible for delivering comprehensive products and services at the best possible value.
Several key features led GSA to choose JReport. Because of sensitive security practices, GSA needs customized sign-on requirements from its reporting solution. JReport fulfilled this by supplying custom parameter entry screens and full layout control with a single sign-on format for all of GSA’s approximately 1,100 federal employees.
JReport seamlessly integrates with GSA’s existing applications. JReport’s advanced reporting capabilities provide multi-format outputs, many types of reports and support of banded objects with multiple queries required for the advanced coordination activities.
As business variables shift, JReport provides real-time business intelligence information. With JReport, GSA has the flexibility to run scheduled reports as needed.
According to Murali Desikachari, program manger at Unisys Federal Systems, GSA’s final decision came down to JReport’s 100% Java architecture and its ability to work with an expansion beyond MySQL and the Unisys mainframe DMSII database. “JReport had the features that would satisfy our requirements,” said Desikachari.
“JReport proves to be a great fit for GSA’s customer facing applications. The extensive security requirements were easily met with JReport. We are pleased to add another flagship organization to our list of customers,” said Jinfonet’s director of sales, Robin Davies.
