    Pros

    All the high-technologies that you need for a modern and successful doing business exist in Izenda. There is no need for a paper reporting anymore, collecting all the reports from different colleagues, sorting them now is in the past. After implementation this software in your company you will forget about all this stuff because all the control of the results of each part of your business you will be able to control through one program where your subordinates will put all the important data.

    Cons

    This software gives to our company everything that we need except the only one little thing. The system allows us to make visualization of our data through graphs and so on, nevertheless the ability to compare all these current charts with the old ones still did not realize here and that is what we want to be added.

    Pros

    The software is easy to use. There's a large sample of report configurations and integrating multiple data sets is easy.

    Cons

    Inital set up can be tough (permissions on files, etc...). Upgrades were cumbersome, but Izenda is improving that process.

    Pros

    The online help and responsive implementation team helped us work through issues and deliver a demonstrable product quickly. I also like the numerous graph types and the ease of creating new dashboards and reports.

    Cons

    The user interface supports numerous functions and so the screen is sometimes crowded. This is mitigated with collapsable panels that are helpful.

    Pros

    The support staff was very willing to work with out specific needs to integrate with our product. Additionally, the UI visualization renderings will add a lot of "pop" to our product to drive up customer adoption.

    Cons

    There are way too many settings which would confuse our users. This requires us to craft our own version of settings to hide that complexity.

    The technical requirements in our search were definitely met by Izenda. The real differentiator was their business model and the ability to completely understand our business needs. These backed by real people made the decision fairly simple.

    Cons

    The overall solution is still quite new with a monthly build-out of features and bug fixes. They are absolutely going in the the right direction.

    Integrating izenda 7 series has giving our product the ability to the end user to create and administer dashboards and ad hoc reporting, ultimately giving the end user better insight into their data without having to contact us for base report modifications. We essentially needed a BI tool, and this fit the bill!

    Pros

    I really like their flexible architecture. They have many integration and stand alone modes that fits all scenarios. The technology stack aligns quite well with ours - so that was a plus. The visualizations and ad hoc reporting capabilities are great. The simple licensing model is a must, and very good customer support.

    Cons

    The documentation on integration for both series 6 and 7 is a bit lacking - although I have seen a great push on getting it updated, its had to get any fine details. Due to this it has taken a long time for us to embed the solution properly.
    Although series 7 has many advantages, it is also lacking in certain areas compared to series 6. Having no export of the reports makes it hard to mange tractability with source control. 7 series is still quite immature with a lot of bugs. Performance is always a concern.

    Izenda gives our clients access to their data, in an easy to use form, without them requiring direct database access. Also gives us time to concentrate on more complex report requests because clients can develop their own simple reports. And can schedule the report to run repeatedly.

    Pros

    With the new version of Izenda, it has been easy to implement segregation by Tenant whilst allowing us, as administrators, to share reports between tenants. Our users will find the report history option useful.
    The support during our implementation period has been excellent.

    Cons

    Adding relationships between tables\views was a labour intensive task and I had to repeat it for several tenants.

    Value for Money

    Because of Izenda's seamless integration, our customers have a powerful BI tool at their disposal that looks like a natural extension to our product

    Pros

    Izenda's ease of use is one of their biggest strengths. Another main advantage is that users have a great deal of control in terms of formatting and displaying reports. If required, a report can be formatted "Pixel Perfect" for accurate printing requirements. We were also able to embed Izenda seamlessly into our application making it seem like a natural extension to our product.

    Cons

    It would be great if power users were able to input a SQL statement to build a data set. Also another
    one of the challenges we encountered was the deployment of Izenda to other internal and external environments.

    Pros

    Izenda is a complete, highly configurable, scalable and extensible reporting and analytics platform designed for today's connected collaborative cloud-based enterprise solutions backed by a strong positive management, R&D and services teams that are very easy to work it.

    Cons

    Advanced reports and dashboards require a strong background in SQL and may also require some Izenda training and support.

    Could use a little work.

    Pros

    Izenda is going to be easy for the end user, but getting to that part is a small struggle. It is fairly easy for users to drag and drop and produce pretty reports.

    Cons

    It seems there has to be a better way that to create views for everything! I find that very time consuming and frustrating.

    Easily integrated within our SaaS platform. Flexible licensing model.

The internal instance has greatly improve the efficiency of our Customer Service and Finance departments.

    Cons

    Unable to load balance by storing session state in Redis. Report scheduler is not user friendly. Note that we currently use version 6 and these items appear to be resolved in version 7.

    Izenda integrates nicely into our data warehouse. We use it to provide reports and visualizations to internal and external customers. We also use it for analytics on or internal processes such as monitoring or ETL activities.

    Pros

    Izenda fit well in the "good enough" domain. It answers most business analytics and reporting needs without having to hire an army of developers and/or pay a tremendous amount. The embedded analytics model lets you develop customized solutions that can be given to end-users. but it is also powerful enough that it can be used for more advanced purpose.
    I personally have been using Izenda for less than 6 month and the learning curve is somewhere between Tableau and Qlikview to get to the expert level.
    Most end-users will learn how to navigate reports and dashboards designed for them in a couple of hours as most features are quite intuitive and fit most needs.

    Cons

    The onus is on the developer of Izenda's applications to design applications that are easy to use. Most complains are related to people trying to use out of the box features that need a little bit of in-depth knowledge - mainly SQL and database related - in order to use the whole potential of Izenda.
    Charts start to look and feel a bit outdated, but each new release brings updates that address the problem.

    It has been a much appreciated additional offering in our software suite.

    Pros

    Ease of use it at the top of the list; it is relatively easy to get users up and running on designing their own reports and customizing existing ones.

    Cons

    It can be a bit slow with LARGE data sets; we are still on a slightly older version, so this may have been corrected in newer versions. It is easily dealt with by building smaller reports and combining them if needed.

    The data sources page is a bit confusing...once you get data sources setup right, the rest is easy. But you have to know the DB pretty well to get that first tab right.
