Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

I have utilized Dunn several times in my career at various companies. I have particularly liked how I can have architecture consultations with them to help assess various go-forward options, and then also roll into implementations of those recommendations and/or simple project work.

This has included a report rationalization initiative, a BI Platform Upgrade, and launching new technologies like Snowflake DW. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Dunn has been very responsive in providing a variety of resources to meet my needs. When planning technology upgrades or re-platforming, they understand that technology implementation is the easy part and we need to focus on the full adoption of said technology. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it is difficult to get the particular resource (person) I want because they are always in demand. However, I have been pleased with the other resources provided. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Moving from legacy/proven technology to modern technology approaches. Two main benefits have been increased user adoption, as well as more visual/analytics based approaches vs. row/column based approach to providing business insight. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Over the past several years, Dunn Solutions has assisted Chemeketa Community College with the implementation of SAP data warehousing and reporting tools. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We have appreciated the fact that Dunn is a "one-stop shop" for advice with our data warehousing initiatives. They have helped us build and troubleshoot servers, advised us on data design, performed upgrades and patches, improved end-user reports, and even worked with upper administration to help facilitate an institutional understanding of how data warehousing can be used at an educational institution.

Our relationship with Dunn began when we were trying to unravel a snarly mess that had been created by a former consultant. Most of what our team has learned about sound data warehousing principles has come from Dunn Solutions. We continue to be impressed by the breadth of knowledge represented by their talented team. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing really comes to mind here. We have at times been sad to see certain members of Dunn's staff move on to pursue other professional goals, but that is normal and we've never felt "abandoned" after a personnel change. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I believe the most important work the college has done under Dunn's guidance was a complete re-engineering of the underlying data structure of our warehouse. We implemented some very bad recommendations from an earlier consultant and our platform was in disarray. In a week-long, on-premise engagement, representatives from Dunn patiently worked with us on how to change our design concepts, resulting in a much more efficient data structure and, consequently, faster query/reporting results.

We are currently (July 2020) working with Dunn to migrate our data warehousing to Oracle Cloud; they will primarily be assisting us with that by rebuilding the SAP servers in the cloud environment and making sure our existing data loads and reporting are properly repointed and working efficiently.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Dunn Solutions assisted us in getting our marketing website and eCommerce portal set up. They helped us take the design comps we received from another vendor and build out our site. They helped us meet aggressive timelines for implementation of both the Marketing site and eCommerce and worked quickly to resolve any issues that arose during planning and execution.

I like that Dunn not only sought to understand our business but continues to be a valued partner by building on that understanding as we explore new enhancements and opportunities to partner on developing solutions.

Working with the same people at the company has also helped us develop a strong partnership, allowing for more effective approaches to projects. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Just as having a smaller-scale company provides benefits of familiarity with personnel, there is always the risk of capacity issues. We've only run into this once or twice, but I am listing it since I cannot complete this review otherwise. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Our primary issues have been with eCommerce and our website. Dunn is also helping us scope and understand content management systems and which might be the best fit for us. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wouldn't say there's anything we dislike, but we've relied on them for a fairly limited scope of work, and have only worked with 4 or 5 of their people. So we can't speak to their broader capabilities very much. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
