Yes. It is just a repackaged version of Pentaho elements like Mondrian. I'm not sure if their ETL is based on Kettle. If you're a smart dude (and I know you are) it will make you smarter. But if your users aren't as smart as you, this tool won't help you. Are you working on new marts or are you just playing around on your spare time because you're curious? If its new stuff at work that is driving this, it would be interesting to hear why you're looking at Jasper versus your current output tool. i.e. What are the pain points you're trying to solve.
