SeekTable is an online ad-hoc reporting web tool that supports pivot tables and pivot charts. The company behind SeekTable.com is located in Kyiv, Ukraine. The SeekTable service is maintained by the same team that supports NReco Components. They've been in business long enough that you can be sure that SeekTable will not suddenly vanish. Although your data is only ever used to build visualizations and reports requested by you, a web-based service may not be the best choice for very sensitive data.
Data can come from a variety of sources, including CSV,TSV, and Excel files, as well as a number of databases, including MySQL (Amazon Aurora), SQL Server (Azure SQL), PostgreSql (Amazon Redshift, PipelineDB), Yandex ClickHouse (binary protocol), MongoDb (Azure Cosmos DB), ElasticSearch, and just about any other DBMS that has a compatible ODBC driver.
WideStage Open Source Reports
Here we have a lightweight self service reporting tool that's powered by NodeJS. It uses Semantic so that your users can query data using business terms instead of SQL. It also supports SQL Server, Oracle, and Google BigQuery.
In addition to NodeJS, WideStage Open Source Reports also requires that npm, Bower, and MongoDB be installed on your system. MongoDB is used to store the widestage metadata, so you have to install it even if your data is stored in MySQL. Once everything is installed, you can launch the application by typing "node server.js" at the command prompt. Then point your browser to your ip/server name and enter your credentials to access your reports.

If you're a web developer like me, you'll appreciate a language that lets you integrate reporting into your websites.

Developed by Murat Çileli, PHP-Reports is a cloud based, interactive report engine for generating neatly formatted PDF reports from Word (.docx) templates. The name is a bit of a misnomer, because PHP-Reports also supports ASP.NET, ASP.NET MVC, WPF, Silverlight, WinRT, HTML5, Windows Forms, Java, Python, Objective-C, Swift, Delphi and other languages as well.
