"Real Time Data"

What do you like best?

Used at our university it has a slightly different name, and a slightly older scheme than the 2018 version, it is still a great system to pull real-time data from our servers and showcase it in "easy to read" graphs and charts. The drill down options are very useful, and there is a lot of information we can pull into our system to allow everyone across campus to be on the same page.

What do you dislike?

It is very annoying that it will only work through Internet Explorer, as that is not commonly used today. It also does not have the most simple user interface, and the lack of a "back button" or undo, can get tedious if you drill up or down incorrectly.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is easy to use across a campus, where everyone from staff to faculty to administrators can see the same data, and know that it is up to date. It is easy to use with some simple training and can be set up that levels can be put in place to offer tiers of data protection.

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

This helps me to track the student enrolled in programs I am helping to coordinate and contact. The system gives me real-time access in the early weeks of the semester to see who has enrolled, paid, and attended a class. It is a quick way for me to access student data without having to put through a formal 3-week request for name and information that may be inaccurate when received.

"Good Consolidated Platform for Easy Visualizations "

What do you like best?

I enjoy using Pyramid in the cloud and having the ability to easily attach my Excel files to common databases. It is super convenient to be able to use the included In-Memory database to do visualizations within my own work-space quickly.

Being able to use Measures, manage colors and apply Filters easily is similar if you've ever used Tableau which is a good thing from the usability. In addition, you can expect to be able to change visual types between the usual suspects such as bar charts, scatter, volume and pie charts.

From a performance perspective, Pyramid has been able to handle data sets I have imported up to 100k records at a time. The ability to take this data and apply it to a Presentation within the Pyramid Analytics browser is a nice touch for being able to stay organized between different client deliverables.

What do you dislike?

Some of the ways to manage fields could be more intuitive within work space; what I mean, is, I would love to be able to more easily group related data elements. Moreover, I would like to see an easier way to manage presentation creation with an auto-snap feature rather than just click & drag free form.

In addition, it would be cool if metadata from connected data sources had the option to change in real-time with the addition of new data elements. Overall this is not a problem, but, it would be neat if there was a way to build a live dashboard.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try the In-Memory option for creating reports, visuals and presentations. Make sure to consider multiple different views and data aggregations as the drag & drop interface is very forgiving and relatively easy to figure out. My first pivots were trial and error but they have become second nature.

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

I am able to create descriptive visualizations out of silo'ed and desperate Excel spreadsheets. In addition, it is easy to share different visuals and presentations with my colleagues who are also part of the Pyramid Analytics team. The combination of description and communication is a huge help between different teams from Product Management (who are concerned with usage), Customer Reporting and internal services teams.

"Works well for very simple reporting"

What do you like best?

It does play nice over a server, so our audience can use it across chrome and other internet explorers. It shows tables nicely and the audience can filter down to the bone! It does have a user-friendly interface. I like that it is is visually pleasing.

What do you dislike?

It does not play well when you want to do advance reporting with multiple sources and multiple dimensions, or charts. It does not export nicely.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If it is in your price range then go for it, but there are better tools out there.

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

We use it because it works nicely over a server so a large audience can access it easily. Out IT department can easily control who can see it and when they can see it. We feel that it is secure and we don't have a threat of invasion.

"Makes data simplier"

What do you like best?

I really liked the fact that it made data queries easier by removing the SQL code. I was able to create outputs without worrying about the code. A huge help for those who are not SQL experts

What do you dislike?

A downside is not being able to control the code. It's nice to not have to work with a UI to change what is being pulled, it allows for more customization but again this can be a drawback if you have a queries error out

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

Data gathering/ financial reporting were all helped with pyramid, it loowed me to work more efficently
