Best functionalities in a BI tool that money can buy

I am working with Dundas BI since the day it was born (roughly 2014 begining) and I can say that I had only good experiences with it, as long as you know it very well.

Pros

- ease of use - really intuitive
- extremly open to external integration, like javascript D3 charts, tools like TinyMCE, picture uploaders etc.
- writeback option to send data to a database
- R and Python Integration
- big array of visualisations and also some interesting ones, like Sankey Driagram, Tree Node Map, Chord Diagram etc.

Cons

- big learning curve for developers
- not so self service BI orientated
- Dundas diferentiates a dashboard from a report or scorecars, so you have to learn how to do 3 things

Excellent BI Integrations!

Pros

Dundas BI is really a one of a kind type of platform that can give critical insights to any organization. Without these insights you really don't know what you're missing. Must try!

Cons

It took some time to really train on the platform and understand how to manage the analytics. With some time you can get a good grip on everything.

This product can do anything!

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

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.

Dundas BI is like Pandora's Box. Everytime I use it, there is a new exciting feature/functionality to be found

Pros

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 a very good tool for creating cubes from different sources including direct excel sheets.

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.

A great tool for creating pixelperfect dashboards.

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.

Data Visualization made easy

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.

Best visualization and reporting tool ever used.

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.

Dundas BI is a wonderful product that is easy to use and has great features.

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.

Highly customizable BI software with awesome features and visualisations

We tried out many BI tools but Dundas is over all for us the best BI tool on the marked.

Pros

You can customize everything. Ease to use. Pixel perfect visualisations. Great support. Massive out-of-the-box capabilities.

Cons

The collaboration functionalities could be better. A function to send messages to other users for example would be create.

Dundas Preview

Pros

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.

Highly Customizable Dashboard Tool for Experts and Novices Alike.

Pros

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.

Cons

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.
