    Pros

    And by anything, I mean it. Dundas can create all sorts of visualizations, info graphics & charts like I've never imagined.

    Cons

    It's not really a con, but because there is so many options, it can make using it difficult. I wish making maps was as easy as in Tableau.

    best of breed, open standards BI dashboarding environment

    Value for Money

    keep up the great work -- after a two months, in-depth technical review of about a dozen BI tools out there, including PowerBI, Spotfire, DOMO, MicroStrategy, Pyramid Analytics, Tableau, Looker, Qlik, + Open Source solutions -- for the aforementioned points, our company settled on DundasBI, as the "best of breed", most flexible, scalable, modern, fast, "future-proof" & cost-effective solution.

    Pros

    In no particular order:
    1. Licensing options: a. concurrent, b. unlimited, c. perpetual (some vendors may offer just one or two)
    2. Open Standards & API hooks for JavaScript, .Net, REST
    3. "No pressure" Sales engagement.
    4. Company is willing to go the extra mile to assist with POCs, onboarding, technology adoption.,
    5. Clear documentation, FAQ's, Scripting Samples.
    6. Forums to interact with community.
    7. Modern, fast GUI, with rich set of components.
    8. Frequent product updates.
    9. Fast, responsive and knowledgeable support personnel.
    10. Scalable architecture.

    Cons

    takes a bit getting used to, to ramp up on complex engineering/solutioning of needs (including scripting), for notice JavaScript/REST developers, however the company is willing and able to assist with these endeavors.

    It's really advanced in terms of functionality, visually appealing and yet very simple to use and explore.

    Cons

    Sometimes the feature names are not so intuitive (particularly in the 'Look' tab) to relate to. One needs to do a lot of trial and error to get the desired look of the table/chart/visualization.

    It's not that much complex as compared to other BI tools. The user will understand all of its features not more than one week.

    Pros

    Very user friendly, won't take much time to understand the UI part, whether it's related to creating a dashboard or creating cubes, measures and dimensions. Even you can create you custom cube by joining tables by simple sql queries. Dundas has its own cloud server, hence when you create any new project including dashboards, charts, measures and dimensions..It uploads everything to its secured cloud drive. It simply took me 1 week to understand the complete functionality of dundas all by myself. Hence I would say it won't take much time to get familiar with it even for a non-technical guy.

    Cons

    The tool is very useful and user friendly. The only part I felt it's lacking while writing sql queries by using cascading functionality. It won't support or run using this type of queries.

    Value for Money
    Pros

    The strength of this software (compared to other software for dashboard) is its ability to create graphics, KPIs and totally pixel perfect objects. On other software that I use often I have difficulty in satisfying the client's graphic requests, through Dundas the problem does not arise, indeed it is possible to edit every single object in the smallest detail.

    Cons

    In my opinion the interface is not very attractive, the graphs are functional and clear (which is what we need in practical terms) but could improve a bit 'the graphic aspect that I think is still a bit' too "simple".
    Even the use is not the easiest initially, you have to acquire a little 'knowledge of the software but nothing too difficult.

    ts a versatile platform

    Pros

    I can connect to anything, customize most everything (or not), report on any kind of data.
    It allows to combine data from numerous different data sources (SQL Server, Oracle, SAP BW, Excel, etc.) into combined data cubes allowing the data to be presented in cohesive dashboards and reports that are not broken up by where the data is stored.

    Cons

    The amazing flexibility of dashboarding tools comes complexity and a bit of a learning curve. It would be great if there was more guidance built into the application so that the tools could be more intuitive.

    DUNDAS has a great support philosophy. Never experienced such help performance.

    Pros

    Modularity in design, building reports is remembers playing with LEGO bricks. The embedding functionality is outstanding, too.

    Cons

    There could be more analysis functionality. Provides a lot out of the box, which is awesome. But having a pivot grid like in Power BI would be fitting to the rest of the tool and make it unbeatable.

    There a lot of good people at this company making an awesome product.

    Pros

    Easy to use, security features, continual development of product, and they like taking suggestion from their user base on how to make the product better. I like easy of getting the data and being able to change how I look at it with different visuals. It helps me find the best way to answer the questions I am wanting to answer already and find new questions that I didn't have but see now I should be answering.

    Cons

    Their customer service needs to have a small upgrade. They are helpful a lot of the time. For not unusual situation they are are to help out easily with no issue. On unusual support issues that are technical it takes a few email back and forth then a GoTo Meeting to get things rolling towards a solution.

    Reliability of Information
    The data cubes are a nice feature, it was really easily to put together and save for multiple uses.
    Great Customer Service- even though it took longer to understand their support team was great and was able to help us understand the system at a much faster rate then self learning.

    Cons

    If you are not used to windows than it takes time to navigate. It's been a challenge learning it and having to spend time training, with other software it can be easier initially. At first it crashed my computer multiple times when trying to look at the data which included a screen black out. As long as I didn't pull too much in at one time it would work fine.

    The ability to apply custom looks and functionality through CSS and JavaScript make it a great took for embedded BI. The data cubes make ETL simple for even complex transforms of large data sets.

    The menus and sheer number of settings and options can be intimidating and a little frustrating in the beginning, but as users learn the tool and spend more time in it this is less of an issue.

    I think overall, I would not rule out Dundas, even with it's so called quirks. Dundas staff showed very much that they listen to users, even those that haven't purchased and have taken my criticisms to heart. Since we're not talking about a 2017 Toyota car or whatever, I feel it's important to note the constant evolution of any progressive software company. The complaints stated could be obsolete in a mere few weeks.

    Pros

    Dundas seems to really understand the need of handling big data and the tools needed to process these overwhelming mountains of 1's and 0's into actionable data. While working with the demo of Dundas I was able to create a very helpful tree-map that showed me the dissection of purchases comparatively from vendor to vendor to evaluate our performance or "loyalty" per vendor by item category and so on.

    Cons

    The U.I. of Dundas, while quite robust, seems to concern me in regards to the amount of boxes, checks, and clicks and long clicks I have to make to merely navigate my way through the program. I would rather see more keyboard shortcuts and less "Windows Vista" popups that slow my work. I felt like the settings I would implement would get lost. For instance, I would filter the vendors that weren't pertinent to my particular evaluation, then also the item categories that I wasn't interested in working with. Later on, when in the final building of the dashboard I wanted to add a checkbox filter to allow the end user to select individual item categories and be able to view 1 or all 20-30 at a time. Strangely, even though I filtered (or so I though) this data in the data cube level, I realized that the checkbox list populated with ALL the categories. This was quite frustrating. Also, I have yet to figure out how to go from an unfinished dashboard back to the data metrics screen where I built the KPI to start with. Unless i'm mistaken, it seems you have to go back to your saved metric set and then create a new dashboard after edits. Hopefully I'm wrong in my assessment of this but even so, the answer did not seem to be intuitive .

    I have been using Dundas for a few years now and love it. I have been able to knock out really good looking dashboards in a small amount of time. It has never crashed. If I do something incorrectly there are helpful error messages and a log I can inspect.

    Pros

    Very powerful, tons of configuration options, great user community, gorgeous visualizations, good documentation, responsive support

    Cons

    I would like to see more videos with some of the more difficult business cases being solved. I would like for there to be more built in themes and styles.
