When I show Targit to users, they're wowed instantly by its usefulness. The ability to click on an element of one object to dynamically filter other objects on a page allows me to build tremendously useful reports that I could not do with any of the other applications that we evaluated. The degree of control you have over who sees what information is as granular as you could want, yet the interface for maintaining these controls is incredibly simple and easy to use. We've heard nothing but good things from our users, and more people ask for a license all the time.

Pros

The breadth of data sources it can use is impressive. The software is super fast and easy to use. It's easy to train new users and to manage who sees what information. Building a new report and disseminating it will frequently take me less than 10 minutes compared to at least an hour using SQL and Excel. The latest version (2017) has some new charts and a much cleaner interface than the 2015 version.

Cons

Some of the add-ons cost more than I think they should, and some ought to just be included with the software IMO. There are a couple quirks about how data labels are displayed in charts, but it affects a small percentage of cases and is probably only noticed by a handful of people. Building certain types of objects and reports is a little more cumbersome or counter-intuitive than I'd like, but not so much so that I won't use them because it doesn't change the experience for the end user.

Advice to Others

Spend as much time scoping out your requirements as possible. There were certain fields and tables we should have brought in to the solution during implementation, and while it's always possible to add them in after the fact, it's just easier to do during implementation. My other recommendation is that our approach during launch was not to convert all of our existing Excel reports to Targit (instead we chose to mostly focus on new reports), but in hindsight I don't think that was the best idea because it keeps employees in this state where they have to bounce back and forth between Targit and Excel for their reports. It would be best if employees could just stay inside Targit.

Incredible customer service support. It is second to none. I use this for my small business and it is excellent. It was a little tricky at first understanding how the input data needs to be entered. But after that the dashboards couldn't be easier or more useful!

Pros

Customer support helped me set up my dashboards

Cons

Targit creates reports with ease. Dashboard /storyboards are a great tool. However they have included a Webserver (the Touchserver) that is not stable. If you want a iPad/SmartTV to show a Dashboards 24x7 without user interference, forget it. Multiple times a day you need to manually refresh.

Customer support could not find anything (or was not willing to find anything) and suggested to work with PC and a native Targit client. That works however the costs are greater and there is an extra component which I really do not need.

Pros

Good reporting, anyone who understands the data can create something usefull

Cons

Touchserver is a dreadfull thing, either stop selling it or fix it

Advice to Others

Take a good hard look, there are lots of other products on the market

The product allows an organization's users to easily get familiar how BI Analytics plays a vital role for their company. Helps standardize the reporting needs within an organization and effectively become a more data-driven company. The product is created to try to remove unnecessary complexity that other BI tool providers forget about.

Knowing what we know now we just regret not getting the product sooner.

Their entire Team is committed to helping you succeed with the use of their product as well as honestly interested in the users feedback to make the product better and more efficient to continue providing the value.

The drag and drop data points is a very easy way to quickly build a report from scratch. Our group also uses the scheduling function a lot to set up daily or weekly reports.

Likes Least

Building dashboards is a bit cumbersome and TARGIT lacks many of the charts of graphs you typically see in MS Excel.

Recommendations

Think of the most least technical resources on staff, in our case it was the sales department, and imagine that group attempting to build or quickly review reports. Your BA tool can have all the best features but if it's not easy to use you're just wasting your money.

It's not intuitive, like Microsoft. Your first few clicks seemingly are never right. Moreover, you are at risk of making costly mistakes and loosing work easily.

Recommendations

Train a few power users to be super users for the rest. The power users then can create reports for the population.

It's great BI software for quick, easy-to-develop reports and dashboards. It's a stable and reliable platform. The ability to schedule auto-emailed reports is a great feature.

Likes Least

The advanced calculations are difficult to use. The graphs are too basic. There's not enough interaction with other Microsoft applications and not enough custom tools for reports design.

Recommendations

If you plan on using small to medium sized reports (less than 500 lines), TARGIT is a fine application. If you are looking for an in-depth large metric board, then I would pass.
