Holistics Software


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.

Worth Considering!

Pros

The positioning of Holistics among other BI tools are very unique hence complement the needs of Holistics even though we are already equipped with other more well known BI software.

Using Holistics has been made very intiuitive especially for data analyst / engineer that already has familiarity with writing sql code. We very much like the ability of Holistics in performing ETL job and its scheduling ability.

Last but not least, their heartfull customer service practice and and their proactive approach in taking feedback from customers are the one true quality that set them apart from the others.

Cons

The pricing scheme can get a bit tricky which can be very costly on some use case.

One of the best BI tools for both data team and end-users

Pros

Holistics makes it easy for data team to create and manage different dashboards and reports, with query templates to make it easier to maintain the SQL query codes across different reports. Having an ETL option makes it a big plus to have a full-stack solution. One constant surprise that Holistics always give is that the features developed by the team is always on-point, and what we really wanted. The support team is responsive even on weekends. Keep up the good work!

Most BI tools have the end-users in mind and often is a nightmare for the data team to create and manage the different dashboards and reports. We were on RJMetrics and tried to look through other solutions like Lookr, Mode, and none of the alternatives were better than RJ Metrics. Decision to go ahead with Holistics was made within 10 mins. It offers

Cons

The UI of the dashboard is not as good as the other BI tools. While the metrics dashboard is a good ideal, not allowing query templates to work in metrics dashboard makes it not possible to use it as our daily dashboard.

The best value for a BI analytics platform I have encountered yet

Awesome experience and great team. Once more companies learn about Holistics, they will being taking a huge chuck of the share from the big players in the market for sure.

Pros

I love the product. Reports are simple to create. The Metrics over time are a great feature and reduces need for complex date joins. I use scheduled report emails for alerting. Slack integration.

The support is phenomenal-- one of the best support teams I have encountered in dealing with countless software platforms.

Cons

Potentially could get pricey for large orgs who might require over 6000 reports?

Emailing Feature

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.

A business intelligence solution for all our data needs

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.

Awesome BI tool with high versatility and best customer support!

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.

Great support team, buggy report filters during creation

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

Everything is ok. Sometime I have trouble to use this software (about UI and Functionality )

Pros

It's easy to use. Support team always ready once we need.
This software supports multiple data source, it helps a lots for data engineer

Cons

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.

Very solid product with all the BI capabilities an analyst would need.

Pros

A product team that is always willing to listen to customer needs so that you can get the most out of the product.

Cons

There is nothing I don't like. The entire product is very well designed from the bottom up & that translates into a great user experience.

Great tool for automating and scheduling reports, it really helped my team to be more efficient!

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 is a good solution for data transformation and loading. It can be automated at ease.

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.

I have not compared Holistics with other tools but so far it doesn't seem like I need to.

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.

Convenient and easy to use.

Pros

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.

Holistics is useful esp in my role.

Pros

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.
