Great experience with the team from the start of the process through delivery, they have some great folks that really care about what they do and know the product inside and out.

“I've worked with various other BI tools, and Dundas surely makes it much simpler in achieving once ”

Copy Review URL

What do you like best?

From a design point of view, the fact that various functions is automatically build saving a lot of time, also just drag drop view is awesome. Not even to talk about the ease of implementing the solution into our web application. The learning path was easy. The online training manuals gave a good overview and is well presented. We experienced the online training with Micheal and our developers excelled from there to craft beautiful, informative dashboards for our users.

What do you dislike?

The styling of dashboards is a little bit difficult. But I most probably need more training on the component. I would also would like to see more types of data expresion elements e.g. organogram block style graphs/dashboards.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I've evaluated over 30 other BI tools and found Dundas to be the easiest to transform to, implement and get the desired results

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Dundas as a built in solution in to our operational system. Normally MANCO packs will take about two weeks to generate on excel, by having it built into our solution no more preparation is required, thus saving a lot of time, we are now be more productive. The prediction modeling that we've applied in our solution now shows real time the progress and health of the organisations

“A solution for everything”

Copy Review URL

What do you like best?

The flexibility / configuration options, the high quality visualizations, the embedding capabilities, and high security.

What do you dislike?

High learning curve, the training seemed incomplete, and exercises were centered around following steps rather than learning and understanding the product.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Internally, we're using Dundas BI to predict which clients are a churn risk, which helps us maintain a happy client base and a high retention rate. We're also implementing a multi-tenancy semi self-service BI solution for our clients to use for their own Fleet tracking data. This will allow clients to individually monitor their vehicle utilization, driver safety, and fuel consumption.

“Dundas BI - look no further”

Copy Review URL

What do you like best?

The entire system is massive - can connect to anything, customize most everything (or not), report on any kind of data. If you can dream it, you can build it. But what I like best is the support team - want an answer? Just shoot them an email and you'll get a timely response with an answer (including any JavaScript that may be required), a link to one of numerous topics on their support website and/or an invitation to a GoToMeeting - whatever it takes to get the issue resolved.

What do you dislike?

Same thing that I like best...The entire system is massive - to take advantage of all the features requires lots of learning.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You can spend lots of time evaluating all the players in the BI market...or you can just buy Dundas BI. If you want visualizations, reporting and a mobile solution in one package that is based on today's technology, Dundas BI is the only way to go. No other vendor meets all these requirements (and we looked).

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Providing insight for customers by showing their data in an easy-to-understand, easy-to-navigate, interactive format. As a Dundas BI partner, our reputation is enhanced by offering the product to our client base.

“Feature packed BI with an excellent API”

Copy Review URL

What do you like best?

Dundas BI offers an unrestrained experience because it provides users every feature they can think of and then also exposes the full system API to developers. There's no need for dashboard designers to leave the web UI and go to some desktop tool to edit a dashboard, everything is done in a single comprehensive web app. The visualisations are stunning and the drill down and filtering options are fantastic. Combined with this is excellent customer support.

What do you dislike?

One of the downsides of Dundas BI is that with the amazing flexibility of the 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.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have complex BI needs or want to integrate with a BI platform from your own applications then don't hesitate to invest in this product.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're providing a SaaS web application with a self-service BI component which is provided by embedding Dundas BI. The benefits have been excited users that get to experience dashboards that deliver real insights on any device from massive datasets. We're also able to generate new dashboards for our users dynamically by making use of the rich API available in Dundas BI

“Powerful product”

Copy Review URL

What do you like best?

The ability to build up dashboards, visualizations and reports with very little training. The user interface is extremely intuitive and the flexibility to customize how you want to present your data is great. It has all the tools we need to provide embedded BI and self-service for our clients.

Building a data cube is a breeze, along with defining metric sets that can be reused in any visualization. We also did a trial run of authentication and embedding into our existing portal web application and was very easy to do. Was able to meet our requirements for a dashboard, self-service reporting, and scheduling.

What do you dislike?

Haven't run into anything yet other than some minor issues with exporting data and not keeping the filters that I had applied in the PDF.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Providing insight to clients on the status of their services, their threat landscape and providing clients with self-service and data discovery tools.
