Holistics is a cloud based business intelligence (BI) application with integrated data reporting and preparation tools. The application works in a SQL-based environment and allows businesses to connect multiple SQL databases, run ad-hoc queries, predict trends and visualize data.

With Holistics, data analysts only need to script reports once. The system automatically creates reports on a periodic basis for regular queries. The reports generated are customizable and the data within these reports can be configured as needed.

Holistics' dashboard combines and visualizes data from multiple reports using dynamic charts and graphs. The email scheduler feature sends reports and dashboard snapshots to users on a periodic basis. Additionally, it provides tools to set alerts for threshold events, report issues and send reports to external users via a shareable link.

Holistics is available on a monthly subscription basis.

Supported Operating System(s):
Mac OS , Web browser (OS agnostic) , Windows 10

    Value for Money

    We have built an app for Construction domain. So they are overall paper-based industry. the CEO who sits in HO, has no visibility of what is happening in different sites. Now with this dashboard, their 60% of work is automated and it has 100% visibility and tracking is effective. Now mistakes are reduced, project is on track. One email every mrng gives PM a large pic of his project

    Pros

    1. The best feature is of this software is, scheduling the automatic email, which is the number 1 request from all our customers. If one day holistics email stops, our customers will question us.
    2. Email feature gives the Top management like CEO, PM's, Director the overall view of what is happening at their project.
    3. Best is Dashboard Emailing - 200% benefit, Even microsoft Power BI doesnot have this feature, so you guys beat Power BI in this aspect. Kudos.
    4. Cant imagine a day without your software.

    Cons

    1. The major drawback is Drilldown feature not available like Power BI
    2. Creating Timeseries filters, dropdown takes more time in holistics. Which needs improvements.
    3. Very less interactive.
    4. When emailed large dashboard with wider bar graph, few bar lines in that gets shrinked and creates confusion for users. It would be much better if you could address this better.

    Pros


    Highly useful tool when we need to transform, import, prepare, or load data from our database because it helped us save a lot of time and resources when we no longer needed to code to do this. Setting up automation can be done with great ease, and the user interface is user-friendly with very dynamic features.
    Their customer support team is very responsive to all questions and requests, and are highly engaging and professional.

    Cons

    Currently doesn’t support Python, only SQL. We hope it will at some point in the future though. It is a very promising solution though.

    Working with big data has never been easier! With Holistics, one can track and get updated on the most important metrics for the business!

    Pros

    Able to build reports, do data preparation, schedule emails, etc. with so much ease!
    UI is extremely intuitive, features are dynamic, and data transform is beyond useful!
    Support team is outstandingly engaging and resourceful, always quick to provide resolutions to every question, issue, or request for a new feature.

    Cons

    Loading and extracting a heavy query can take longer than expected, causing inconvenience to the business users, especially during peak usage.

    Pros

    1. Super fast and responsive support team!! Thank you so much team. Your support has been a huge role
    2. Able to request for customized features
    3. Able to schedule emails to be sent automatically however many we want. There are platforms out there that has this feature but they only allow to send 1 email or push per day to reduce congestion

    Cons

    1. Visualization can be improved. A lot of times they charts are congested and could be more responsive. Eg. Toggles that can adjust the charts instead of reloading the whole report again to get a subset of the data.
    2. Creating reports with that tiny frame is a little tough at times when you want to view more of the codes in one screen. Ended up have to scroll a lot
    3. Low user customizing-ability. Admin have to create reports and maintain the reports very thoroughly. If users can drag and drop to adjust things themselves, then admin can concentrate more on bringing better value rather than maintaining the reports according to every different users' demand.
    4. Report format is quite unreadable in email

    UI suddenly changes without announcement, our user is confused and complained about that to us.
    I don't like the way charging for filter. All filters are charged even though they are shared filter.

    Better time management thanks to automated report schedules!

    Pros

    It is has a very user-friendly interface, a ton of highly customizable report objects, dashboards, and e-mail schedules,

    Cons

    Unable to modify report on mobile phone browser. Our tight work schedule requires me to multi-task and sometimes I find myself having to find things out only possible by writing ad-hoc queries. This is currently solved by remotely accessing a colleague's PC to use Holistics.

    It helps us a lot in transforming and loading the data.

    Pros

    I like most about transformation and import feature. It saved us a lot of time when in the past we have to code to solve this problem.

    Cons

    Analyze feature, Holistics only supports SQL for analyzing. When comparing to Mode Analytic, it does not support Python. I hope that Holistics will have it the future.
    And when we run a query, a progress bar would make user feel that their query runs faster.

    Pros

    I love the filters, email schedules and the data imports. The fact that those are pretty useful and sort of painless to use to me is great. But most of what I like is the support and constant improvements made to the product! (love that new years animation in the menu bar too). Looking forward to more innovations hopefully some simple machine learning implementations that can help us clean and visualize data

    Cons

    People in my organization tend to export a report and do pivots and simple excel-like things to the data which I find to be very counter-productive so maybe introducing a feature to sort that out would be helpful. I wish it had a more Google Drive sharing and viewing system, right now if I give access to a report, to a particular user, that user also sees the folder in which that report lies which is not really cool, they also don't have the ability to manage their reports much. Nothing else I can think of off the top of my head.

    Grouping the topic of the report into categories. It's easy to find and use. And can be marked as favorites for frequently used items.

    Cons

    Downloading reports sometimes takes a long time to wait for reports to be processed. And there may be occasional interruptions in case there are multiple users simultaneously.

    The number of reports available or can be created is very useful. On a less peak day, the report can be extracted and dowloaded quite fast.

    Cons

    The long queue when extracting reports can sometimes be a drag especially during peak usage. Sometimes when the report is generated, it takes long for it to be ready for download.

    A good segway between Tableu (user oriented product) and Mode Analytics (developer oriented product).

    Pros

    - UI is fairly intuitive
    - Dynamic filter functions
    - Support team is local and quick to engage and solve tailor issues
    - Good inventory of charts
    - Data Transform/Query Template is good for Query Management but requires a lot of training and time investment in the beginning

    Cons

    - Design still feels very clumsy at times (e.g. funnel chart compared to metabase funnel chart)
    - There are still bugs to be fixed
    - Data Transform/Query Template is good for Query Management but requires a lot of training and time investment in the beginning
