Izenda is a business intelligence (BI) platform that enables real-time data exploration and report creation. It is suited for software vendors and development teams in enterprises that need to embed BI and analytics functionality into their existing applications. Izenda can be accessed through web browsers on desktop and mobile devices, and on-premise deployments are also available.
Izenda is built on a 3-tier embedded architecture with an open source front end that enables integration with Ruby, Python, Java, .NET, PHP and other applications. Izenda can run on user infrastructure and utilize an application’s existing security. Reporting tools include ad-hoc reports, dashboards, visualizations, tabular summaries, fixed-layout reports, trending comparisons and aggregations.
Users can build charts and grids, add filters and include drill-downs from inside their applications. A GUI-based administrative interface allows system and tenant administration and copy management for code-free deployment and administration. The platform supports a variety of databases, including SQL Server, Oracle and MySQL.

great analytics internally and it helps me big time to sell to decisions makers.
Ability to aggregate reports into dashboard and then drill into records in the system from the reports. Helps me to sell my product to execs big time
The data sources page is a bit confusing...once you get data sources setup right, the rest is easy. But you have to know the DB pretty well to get that first tab right.

One of the best things about Izenda is the flexibility it provides not only to the admins but the end users we well. It is very user friendly and had a ton of features.
The flexibility of the software can make it complex to learn if not properly deployed. It required quite a bit of thought to make sure your end users have a streamlined experience.

Izenda easily integrates into our existing ASP.NET SaaS product. It allows our customers to easily visualize their data without having to contact us and have us build a custom report every time.
How easy it is to integrate into an existing ASP.NET deployment.
Some of the filtering and charting can get complicated to build

As a provider of bespoke software solutions I first started to look at Izenda about 7 years ago as a means to provide true Ad-Hoc reporting and to get away from having to develop reports in SSRS. Izenda gives the power of report creation and management back to the user base and will free your IT staff from having to create custom or numerous versions of reports for your clients. You can create a core base set of reports that best suite your solution and let your clients develop / expand them further. I like that it has a lot of base functionality but can also be "customized" to bend to all sorts of requirements and needs. Over the years I have seen quite a few and some of these have then been added back into the product. Not many Vendors would allow that or be so flexible.
Izenda allows seamless white label integration for non-technical users but also allows technical users to customize all areas to provide a powerful solution that matches their core solution. It pushes the reporting burden away from IT and into the hands of the user and allows for complex reporting in a simple to use UI experience.
The documentation whilst getting better still needs to be kept more up to date
Make sure you setup a vanilla instance and get this working as a proof of concept and also use this as a benchmark before embarking on major development work and customizations but remember that it is very flexible. Think about the data and database, some of the perceived problems are actually in the data and the database and it's integrity and whilst Izenda can help it still needs to be pointed to stable data source(s).

We needed to find a way to quickly provide graphical representations of our data to our clients. We wanted an easy to use solution that we could embed without having to pay a distribution fee every time we deployed it. Izenda fit all of those requirements.
We love the dashboards and the graphs.
The capability to customize all the ins and outs of the GUI has posed some challenges but we've overcome them.
Every client that we have demonstrated the solution to, has been very excited to get their hands on it.

The ability to create instant reports quickly is wonderful. Izenda makes it easy for end users, who may normally eschew report writing because of the difficulty of database joins and data relationships, to create lists and graph reports. The way Izenda has allowed data sources to be linked and connected in a directed fashion is a breakthrough for end user reporting.
Izenda fills an important need with many users for quick reports or advanced BI dashboards, and does so with the proper value and ROI. In higher education, many end users are casual users of the system who are not IT people. This tool makes a leap forward for these people to be able to self-create quick lists and graph reports without deep database and table join knowledge.
The recent enhancements to BI dashboard, visualizations, and simultaneous multi-database access have even made things better.

Izenda Is Awesome!!!!
Our customers that are using Izenda, were quickly drawn to the easy-to-use and attractive interface. It can be very simplistic for the casual user, yet very powerful for more sophisticated users and complex analytical tasks.
Access on demand to their data, with any device. This tool makes it easy for users of all levels to create ad-hoc reports, dashboards, and visualizations. The web-based tool makes it easy for all users to create ad-hoc reports, dashboards, visualizations, unlimited views, auto charts, and forms. Great avenue for our clients to share information across offices.
Brad from OMI
We have been using Izenda for 3 years in our own SaaS deliverables as well as have implemented in several custom applications we have built for the commercial market on behalf of our clients. We reviewed and tested several other BI platforms, by far Izenda was the most flexible in delivering a seamless UI for our customers and provides excellent custom options to take on the look and feel for the end product delivered. The team at Izenda has be great to work with and our users and customers are ecstatic.
