JReport 12 Offers In-Memory Visual Analysis and Support for Cloud Storage and Big Data

ROCKVILLE, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 04/02/13 -- 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 [email protected] or call (240) 477-1000.

@MicroservicesExpo Stories
In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
Last week I had the pleasure of speaking on a panel at Sapphire Ventures Next-Gen Tech Stack Forum in San Francisco. Obviously, I was excited to join the discussion, but as a participant the event crystallized not only where the larger software development market is relative to microservices, container technologies (like Docker), continuous integration and deployment; but also provided insight into where DevOps is heading in the coming years.
Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops. In increasingly complex DevOps workflows and environments, and especially in larger, regulated, or more crystallized organizations, these core concepts become even more critical. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk, will show how, by focusing on 'metrics that matter,' you can provide objective, transparent, and meaningfu...
Wow, if you ever wanted to learn about Rugged DevOps (some call it DevSecOps), sit down for a spell with Shannon Lietz, Ian Allison and Scott Kennedy from Intuit. We discussed a number of important topics including internal war games, culture hacking, gamification of Rugged DevOps and starting as a small team. There are 100 gold nuggets in this conversation for novices and experts alike.
In a crowded world of popular computer languages, platforms and ecosystems, Node.js is one of the hottest. According to w3techs.com, Node.js usage has gone up 241 percent in the last year alone. Retailers have taken notice and are implementing it on many levels. I am going to share the basics of Node.js, and discuss why retailers are using it to reduce page load times and improve server efficiency. I’ll talk about similar developments such as Docker and microservices, and look at several compani...
The notion of customer journeys, of course, are central to the digital marketer’s playbook. Clearly, enterprises should focus their digital efforts on such journeys, as they represent customer interactions over time. But making customer journeys the centerpiece of the enterprise architecture, however, leaves more questions than answers. The challenge arises when EAs consider the context of the customer journey in the overall architecture as well as the architectural elements that make up each...
Much of the discussion around cloud DevOps focuses on the speed with which companies need to get new code into production. This focus is important – because in an increasingly digital marketplace, new code enables new value propositions. New code is also often essential for maintaining competitive parity with market innovators. But new code doesn’t just have to deliver the functionality the business requires. It also has to behave well because the behavior of code in the cloud affects performan...
Admittedly, two years ago I was a bulk contributor to the DevOps noise with conversations rooted in the movement around culture, principles, and goals. And while all of these elements of DevOps environments are important, I’ve found that the biggest challenge now is a lack of understanding as to why DevOps is beneficial. It’s getting the wheels going, or just taking the next step. The best way to start on the road to change is to take a look at the companies that have already made great headway ...
In 2006, Martin Fowler posted his now famous essay on Continuous Integration. Looking back, what seemed revolutionary, radical or just plain crazy is now common, pedestrian and "just what you do." I love it. Back then, building and releasing software was a real pain. Integration was something you did at the end, after code complete, and we didn't know how long it would take. Some people may recall how we, as an industry, spent a massive amount of time integrating code from one team with another...
Many private cloud projects were built to deliver self-service access to development and test resources. While those clouds delivered faster access to resources, they lacked visibility, control and security needed for production deployments. In their session at 18th Cloud Expo, Steve Anderson, Product Manager at BMC Software, and Rick Lefort, Principal Technical Marketing Consultant at BMC Software, will discuss how a cloud designed for production operations not only helps accelerate developer...
I have an article in the recently released “DZone Guide to Building and Deploying Applications on the Cloud” entitled “Fullstack Engineering in the Age of Hybrid Cloud”. In this article I discuss the need and skills of a Fullstack Engineer with relation to troubleshooting and repairing complex, distributed hybrid cloud applications. My recent experiences with troubleshooting issues with my Docker WordPress container only reinforce the details I wrote about in this piece. Without my comprehensive...
From the conception of Docker containers to the unfolding microservices revolution we see today, here is a brief history of what I like to call 'containerology'. In 2013, we were solidly in the monolithic application era. I had noticed that a growing amount of effort was going into deploying and configuring applications. As applications had grown in complexity and interdependency over the years, the effort to install and configure them was becoming significant. But the road did not end with a ...
Struggling to keep up with increasing application demand? Learn how Platform as a Service (PaaS) can streamline application development processes and make resource management easy.
As the software delivery industry continues to evolve and mature, the challenge of managing the growing list of the tools and processes becomes more daunting every day. Today, Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) platforms are proving most valuable by providing the governance, management and coordination for every stage of development, deployment and release. Recently, I spoke with Madison Moore at SD Times about the changing market and where ALM is headed.
The goal of any tech business worth its salt is to provide the best product or service to its clients in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible. This is just as true in the development of software products as it is in other product design services. Microservices, an app architecture style that leans mostly on independent, self-contained programs, are quickly becoming the new norm, so to speak. With this change comes a declining reliance on older SOAs like COBRA, a push toward more s...
Small teams are more effective. The general agreement is that anything from 5 to 12 is the 'right' small. But of course small teams will also have 'small' throughput - relatively speaking. So if your demand is X and the throughput of a small team is X/10, you probably need 10 teams to meet that demand. But more teams also mean more effort to coordinate and align their efforts in the same direction. So, the challenge is how to harness the power of small teams and yet orchestrate multiples of them...

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...
Digital means customer preferences and behavior are driving enterprise technology decisions to be sure, but let’s not forget our employees. After all, when we say customer, we mean customer writ large, including partners, supply chain participants, and yes, those salaried denizens whose daily labor forms the cornerstone of the enterprise. While your customers bask in the warm rays of your digital efforts, are your employees toiling away in the dark recesses of your enterprise, pecking data into...
