Benefits of Jasper Reports?

Have you started using Jasper reporting in Windchill? What are some things you can do with Jasper that you couldn't do without it? From the little bit of digging I've done so far, it looks like Jasper mostly allows you to customize the format of the output. I'd be interested in hearing any success stories.

Hi @joe_morton 

The Jasper Reporting is a replacement of Cognos reporting(Windchill Business Reporting). 

 

You have similar opportunity to build own reporting output as you need. 

 

You can collect more queryreports on a one page and format it as you need. 

There can be easier understanding of data output for users.

 

You just need to know how the Jasper Reporting is build. It is different from Congos

 

I have a huge task to move from the Cognos reports to the Jasper Reports but I am stuck with some issues with setting in an eclipse

 

Project Report example in Cognos:

There are several reports in one report.

Also the report is distributed every week to managers by email in PDF format

 

I will move the reports to a Jasper once 😄
