Over 196,437 professionals have used IT Central Station research on enterprise tech.
Compare the best Reporting Tools vendors based on product reviews, ratings, and comparisons.
All reviews and ratings are from real users, validated by our triple authentication process.
The total ranking of a product (and the bar length) is based on a weighted aggregate ranking.
For Views, Comparisons, Reviews, and Followers the score is calculated as follows:
The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score of 17.5 points.
Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in the category.
For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to
the product with the most reviews then the product's score and bar length for reviews would be 17.5% (weighting factor) * 80% = 14.
In the final section, Average Rating, there are 30 points available to each product
independent of the other products.
Reviews and ratings that are more than 24 months old, as well as those by resellers, are excluded from the rankings.
Reporting software helps present information from computers so it can be easily understood by human beings. A report builder takes data and puts it into charts, graphs and tables according to specifications determined by the user. Virtually all relational database software packages include some reporting tools. However, users often want analysis and presentation options that are not included with the database software’s built-in reports. They also typically want to import data from multiple sources, something that is not always easy to do with a particular database’s out-of-the-box reports.
IT Central Station members have written reviews and comments about a wide variety of reporting software products. Their selection criteria include the ability to do ad hoc reporting and easily visualize data. Ease of use for reporting software in general is a common theme of user reviews on IT Central Station.
Proven compatibility with popular packages is helpful, according to IT Central Station Managers. For example, a reporting tool with that has SQL Server Integration Services SQL Server Management Studio on the Microsoft stack is preferable given how common that platform can be.
Reporting is a practical business matter, too. Some users stress the importance of a reporting tool helping to achieve organizational goals. For these users, reporting does not exist in a vacuum. A report needs to be part of well understood business workflow. The tool should support this workflow. In this vein, some users recommend that potential adopters of reporting look closely at the solution’s scheduler, which makes it easy to run the jobs and jobstreams at any convenient moment.
