What do you like best?

The functionality is wide throughout the product. It just does not do dashboards like other products, but also does enterprise reporting that other products do not do. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Mapping is not up to speed as other products, dashboarding is coming along fine but still needs to catch up with products such as Tableau and PowerBi.

Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Client questions based on what they ask. Data questions answered faster and at a lesser cost. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is possible to make decent looking dashboards for data visualization. The software has a fair amount of power to post-process data, for example, a reasonably efficient join. Despite being a bolt-on acquisition, it integrates nicely into the IBM tool ecosystem. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Insanely steep learning curve. This is not a software package you can hand to a business analyst without a ton of training. There are so many ways to shoot yourself in the foot, yielding a report that completely fails but without a clue what to do next. Also, a lot of the data modeling must be done upfront by the report creator, not a lot of dynamic discovery is possible. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Really look at who your likely user base is and their likely adoption level. If you just need a couple people who are pros, this package might be fine. But if you want people to be able to just pick it up and dabble occasionally, look elsewhere. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I used this software to crunch & report on a variety of structured healthcare data related to workflow steps and clinical information. The report was distributed to customers in PDF form for maximum portability, losing a lot of the power along the way because there was no other simple way to distribute it in compiled form outside our corporate walls.

What do you like best?

I really didn't like it. At best, it was easy to store all your data in one place. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It was hard to pivot, even harder to use. It was outdated and couldn't be easily exported from excel. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I was looking to analyze large databases and have since switched to mixpanel. We were trying to find out what our sell-through revenue for paritcular lines of our product were. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
