Say, I've considered JasperReports Server as a solution for ourselves. What Reports Server solutions can you suggest that are similar to it?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi,

Don't know if you've seen this lnk.

http://www.innoventsolutions.com/birt-jasper-pentaho-comparison-matrix.html

From my own research we decided to go with JasperReports and if we need to run reports accross database servers such as SQL Server and Postgres we simply use a jasper report to call a stored procedure on the SQL Server database which in turn has a linked server to the Postgres database runs the query and returns the required data.

Hope this helps,

Darren

Hi again,

I'm sure there are some organisations that have implemented it.

If you review the following link you might find some and you may be able to ask them about their experience.

I use Jasper Report Server and SQL Reporting Services.

Cheers,

Darren
