Pros

Highly recommended to anyone evaluating BI tools - give Yellowfin a look!

We are a small company bringing data visualization to a market that is data rich, yet unsavvy about the insights it can offer. After much research and trial, we landed on Yellowfin two years ago as the best choice for us. There is not a problem or situation we have run into yet that Yellowfin could not address; especially with the assistance of the US based support team. Yellowfin worked with us closely to understand our business and fashioned an arrangement that met our needs nicely. We introduced Yellowfin to our development partner and after the proof of concept work they raved it was easier to use and integrated more effectively than other BI tools they work with, which include the other leaders in the industry. We recommend it regularly to others.

Pros

Ease of use, with compromising functionality, for administrator as well as users. For us, strong security and multitenancy is important.
Data visualization option variety and capabilities. We use the alerts, multiple drilling options, raster mapping, heat map as well as normal visuals.
Collaboration and connection features as we are creating a learning environment for our constituents.
Customization options within the back end as well as embedding front end.
Web based and mobile platforms.
Story telling capability.
Efficiently and effectively handle 1000's of users.

Cons

For us, none yet. As our data warehouse grows, we may add another tool for very heavy data mining.

Advice to Others

Talk with them and let them help solve your problems.

Overall, we've had a great experience with Yellowfin. Setup was easy and we were getting insightful analysis very quickly after adopting. We found the communication and ability to share comments, dashboards, reports very useful. That functionality really helped our distributed team make forward progress within our data sets. It's been a great experience and has been a tool helping drive our business.

Pros

Ease of use, customer support has been great, cost is exceptional value for money.

Advice to Others

If you need to get into your data quickly with fast iterations of analysis and reports, this is a full featured, cost effective win.

Happy with Yellowfin

I have been using Yellowfin for our customers to use on our cloud project management platform (PieMatrix). I spent a good deal of time looking at other BI options. The reason I chose Yellowfin was 1) their user interface and customer end experience is very clean and modern, which reflects well with our PieMatrix "Pie" project tool, 2) the Yellowfin price value was much higher than any other BI tool I reviewed, and 3) they were the best choice for managing end-customer users who have different data sources in a multi-tenant environment. I would also like to share that our experience with their current sales and customer team has been great. They have bent over backwards to help me get the best plan for our customer base. And most importantly, our customers using our Yellowfin integration have been very happy with the report output.

Pros

- Clean user interface
- Easier to use than other tools
- Supportive Yellowfin team
- Great multi-tenancy structure for auto propagating new reports across different data source Yellowfin users

Cons

- It took us a while to install and get the system working, but once it got set up properly, everything has been smooth.
- Yellowfin doesn't have a cloud offering. Their product needs to be installed.

Advice to Others

If you prefer not to have a cloud BI solution, I would strongly recommend Yellowfin.

The simplicity of the interface was a plus, but unfortunately that simplicity went through to the backend. It didn't have the robust features and support that Salesforce did, and I feel it didn't manage multiple data sources as well as DOMO did. I feel that if you want to completely control your reports and have a BI dedicated team build reports where no one else can, it might be a solution for you.

Likes Least

Anytime I needed a report, I ran into issues with this software. We used yellowfin for a period of months, having switched from Salesforce. I found the reports were difficult to produce, and the data management was okay at best. We later switched to DOMO which was a breath of fresh air, as far as it comes to ease of use and data management.

Recommendations

Yellowfin is a tool that might work for certain situations best, but I don't know what those situations would be. You're better off with DOMO or Salesforce to manage your data and communicate it around your company.

Thanks for the review, Erik! Customer feedback is the main engine of Yellowfin’s innovation. With that said, we’re extremely bummed about your negative experience with Yellowfin and are regretful that we couldn’t work with our Partner that was handling your account in a more effective manner. For what it’s worth, our newest version 7.2 tackles the issues you bring up. If anything changes for you in regards to your current BI platform, we’d love to show you the newest version of Yellowfin and win you back!
Cheers - Yellowfin.
