Jaspersoft and Education

Jaspersoft embedded

Educators at all levels need the ability to create, manage, and share detailed reports about their students. The ability to collect and share relevant data about students drives student success. It allows teachers, guardians, and administrators to make smart, data-driven decisions about allocating resources most effectively. At the same time, schools and school districts often lack the overhead needed to invest in costly, high-tech solutions. There usually isn’t space in a school’s budget for beautiful data visualizations, including easy-to-interpret graphs and charts. As a result, one of the areas where this type of technology is badly needed is frequently underserved.Jaspersoft Embedded ReportingJaspersoft embedded BI software provides cost-effective solutions for data visualization and reporting that are easily embedded into school districts’ existing software. Because it is open-source, Jaspersoft can be implemented at a fraction of the cost of other reporting software products, while also benefiting from the continued contributions of the engineering community. To better understand the benefits of Jaspersoft’s embedded BI solutions for education, we’ll look at two parts of the Jaspersoft ecosystem: JasperReports and Jaspersoft Studio. Together, these tools can be used to create comprehensive reporting systems for educational institutions.JasperReportsJasperReports is a reporting library that can write to a […]

HealthCare digital

Proper health care is no longer just a visit to your local physician making treatment decisions based upon temperature checks and blood pressure measurements. Pokes and prods to the abdomen, a cold stethoscope to the chest, gentle ear probes, and tongue depressors for the throat exam, gentle touch to the neck and arm sockets looking for lumps, all now have become digital information uploaded into a database containing the history of our bodies. Add to this, blood and urine analysis, x-rays, full-body scans and much more and our physical existence has now become a complete blueprint stored in some vast array of data out in the cloud. Envision that holographic image of the patient that can now be passed around to any medical professional needing to consult on your physical well-being and the essence of modern medicine has been achieved! Unfortunately, this digital image is just an incoherent array of bits and bytes to medical professionals who are experts in their fields, but as data manipulators, not so much. Step up to the Jaspersoft suite of software! What once was the arduous task of data mining to access your digital body can now be presented in customized pixel-perfect reports. Jaspersoft […]
