Jaspersoft product has started as an opensource BI technology and it still in releases timely. Along with opensource edition(or community edition) it also offers it's enterprise edition with Advanced features over community edition like multi tenancy, OLAP analysis , ad-hoc reporting and etc. 


2) Where one can find information on TIBCOJaspersoft BI platform ?

One can visit the TIBCO jaspersoft official website at http://www.jaspersoft.com/ to know more about it. 
It also has community website & the url is : http://community.jaspersoft.com/

4) How Enterprise TIBCOJaspersoft BI platform differ from other Enterprise BI platforms in the Market ?

* Every organization/firm needs reports/dashboards for tracking its business day to day to take better decisions. 
* There are "N" number of Enterprise BI tools available in the market but why do we need to chose this means 

firstly , as it as an open source suite its enterprise edition  is cheaper than any other enterprise BI platform.

secondly, it has powerful enterprise features as explained in point-3 which you might not find in other enterprise BI suite. 

last but not the least, Jaspersoft is in very active stage with new technologies such as HTML-5, D-3 , BigData and in it's every new release one can find these type of features as how business intelligence is moving with data world. 



5) What is the cost of TIBCOJaspersoft BI product(s) & official support ?

One must contact TIBCOJaspersoft to know pricing.

Costing differ from edition to edition and number of licenses 

( Editions of Jaspersoft : Community, Reporting, AWS(Amazon Web Services), Professional & Enterprise). 


6) Is there any mechanism to migrate projects from other to jasper ? 

No, there is no a mechanism to migrate projects from other to Jasper. 

Redesign / Re writing Jaspersoft realted code to convert from other platform to Jspersoft is required. 

For example : A report developed in Pentaho or Crystal can not be loaded in Jaspersoft. We have to develop the fresh report by taking the previous platform as a reference.

Jaspersoft offers all the BI implementation community and enterprise products .
They are

8) How easy to convert reports/dashboards/analysis/analytics/ETL solutions from other plat form to TIBCOJaspersoft plat form ? 

* Based on project size it can be determined .
* Example : 
Assume one needs to convert reports from "X" platform to Jspersoft paltform . 

i) Classify the reports into low, medium & complex or high complex. 
    a) low level : plain reports with minimum functionality.
    b) Medium level : Graphical Reports with parameters & report level calculations. 
    c) Complex level : a) + b) with lots of report components in it and features like drill downs, drill 
                                   backs and etc. 

ii) Time Estimation : 
    a) plain reports conversion : 10 to 20 hours
    b) medium level reports conversion : 20 to 40 hours
    c) complex level reports conversion : 40 to 100 hours ( might vary). 

iii) Resource allocation : 
Again this depends on project size and dedicated Jaspesoft BI professionals. 

Example : Conversion of 10 medium level reports 

A minimum of 25 business days and a maximum of 50 business days is required to convert 10 medium level enterprise  reports with 1 Jaspersoft BI professional. 
     

9)  Does TIBCOJaspersoft supports responsive visualizations ? (i.e., Mobile Intelligence)
Yes, it supports from 5.6 version.
One can see the responsiveness of Jasper solutions in Mobile /ipad/laptop or desktop.

10) Does TIBCOJaspersoft supports BigData technologies ?
Yes, it supports bigData technologies.
Examples : One can have the reporting system with MogoDB.


Jasper soft Official Support portal :

a) Threads related to development of BI solutions.
