Jaspersoft is a commercial open source software vendor focused on business intelligence, including data visualization, reporting, and analytics. Jaspersoft provides commercial and open source software, support, services, and licensing around the JasperReports, JasperReports Server, Jaspersoft Studio, iReport, and Jaspersoft ETL products. Jaspersoft's main related product is JasperReports Server, a Java web application that provides advanced report server capabilities such as report scheduling, permissions, ad hoc reporting, dashboards, and multi-tenancy. It is offered in a community open source edition as well as under several commercial editions with broad support for various databases and data sources, including NoSQL and other big data datasources.

Jaspersoft was originally called Panscopic, and was founded by Al Campa, CEO, and Raj Bhargava, VP of Products in 2001. Panscopic raised $23M from Doll Capital, Discovery Ventures, Morgenthaler Ventures, and Partech. In 2004 Panscopic teamed up with Teodor Danciu,[2] acquired the intellectual property of JasperReports, and changed the name of the company to Jaspersoft. Brian Gentile became CEO in 2007.

Teodor Danciu began work on JasperReports in June 2001, the sf.net project was registered in September 2001[3] and JasperReports 0.1.5 was released November 3, 2001.[4] The company released JasperReports Version 1.0, July 21, 2005.[5] The code was originally licensed under a copyleft JasperReports License[3] and later moved to LGPL.

TIBCO Software acquired privately held Jaspersoft 28 April 2014, for approximately $185 million.[6]
