Introduction to Jaspersoft OLAP

JasperReports Server builds on JasperReports as a comprehensive family of Business Intelligence (BI) products, providing robust static and interactive reporting, report server, and data analysis capabilities. These capabilities are available as either stand-alone products, or as part of an integrated end-to-end BI suite utilizing common metadata and provide shared services, such as security, a repository, and scheduling. The server exposes comprehensive public interfaces enabling seamless integration with other applications and the capability to easily add custom functionality.

The heart of the Jaspersoft BI Suite is the server, which provides the ability to:

Easily create new reports based on views designed in an intuitive, web-based, drag and drop Ad Hoc Editor.
Efficiently and securely manage many reports.
Interact with reports, including sorting, changing formatting, entering parameters, and drilling on data.
Schedule reports for distribution through email and storage in the repository.
Arrange reports and web content to create appealing, data-rich Jaspersoft Dashboards that quickly convey business trends.

For business intelligence users, Jaspersoft offers Jaspersoft OLAP, which runs on the server. This optional component is described in this user guide.
