JReport 12 Offers In-Memory Visual Analysis and Support for Cloud Storage and Big Data
ROCKVILLE, MD – April 2, 2013 – Jinfonet Software, the leading provider in Java reporting, announces at JReport Summit 2013 the release of JReport 12. This release features Visual Analysis, a new way to enable self-service interactive data analysis powered by high performance in-memory cubes. JReport 12 now integrates with Amazon Redshift, a fully managed, petabyte-scale data warehouse service, and Amazon RDS, a fully managed relational database service. Customers can now combine AWS’ database services with JReport’s robust self-service and embedding solutions to provide data visualization and reporting. Big Data sources MongoDB and Apache Hive are also supported in JReport 12. Other enhancements improve usability, security, and flexibility for reports and dashboards.
Visual Analysis in JReport 12 allows report developers and end users to easily transform their data into rich visualization. With instant visual feedback and on-screen drag and drop actions, users can quickly adjust the dynamics of their data visualization resulting in faster discovery of actionable information. Components created by Visual Analysis can be reused in JDashboard for seamless compatibility. Moreover, the intuitive Visual Analysis UI requires a minimal learning curve with no formal training for end users. Visual Analysis gives users an immediate benefit with a self-service approach to data visualization.
Jinfonet Software integrates with Amazon Web Services to provide support for scalable, elastic cloud visualization solutions. Customers now have the option to run their visualization solutions entirely in the cloud. JReport already runs on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), a web service that provides scalable computing capacity in the cloud. With this release, JReport now supports Amazon Redshift, a fast, petabyte-scale data warehouse service. JReport also supports Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), a web service that makes it easy for customers to set up, operate and scale a familiar MySQL, Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server database in the cloud.
“Jinfonet Software’s applications for Amazon Web Services give customers access to powerful, flexible cloud-based data visualization solutions,” said Terry Wise, Director of Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, AWS. “JReport’s support for Amazon Redshift and Amazon RDS enables data from our cloud database services to be presented for easy visualization and in-depth analysis.”
Furthermore, JReport 12 gives customers with Big Data sources the ability to visualize their rapidly increasing business data. Whether accessing aggregation data or detail data, JReport directly leverages MongoDB and Apache Hive to provide high performance data visualization and analysis using JReport in-memory cubes and detail data caches.
“JReport 12 introduces technologies for making data analysis even easier and more accessible through Visual Analysis and further enhancements to Web reporting and JDashboard. Users now have even greater flexibility to access new types of data sources with Big Data and AWS cloud data warehouse and database services,” said Dr. Bing Yao, CEO at Jinfonet Software. “Building innovative ways to analyze data with connections to advanced data storage gives customers a competitive advantage in quickly visualizing their business information.”
JReport 12 will be generally available in Q2’13. Experience the new features of JReport 12 during our live demo on April 2, 2013. To request a customized demo of JReport 12, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (240) 477-1000.
