Valuable Features

Integrated Data Visualization, GIS and Big Data Integration.

Improvements to My Organization

Since it was an full open source business model, it was easy to customized on general features

Room for Improvement

Many things need to be improved, most of all..robustness. the idea to combines many features in single point of view still became a stronger point. Keep improve in solution robustness and this solution could be one of the leaders

Use of Solution

Six months

Deployment Issues

Yes, and most problematic when we deploy on manual deployment in Jboss or even Tomcat. Less documentation when more information needed.

Stability Issues

Yes, when you deal with template creation in SpagoBI Studio, but it happened only when documentation was less and forum support was not so quick in response.

Scalability Issues

Yes, in terms of deployment in "real" application server when documentation was not so complete

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

Not so good, but since it was an open source and have no supporting deals, then it was a normal business case.

Technical Support:

Not so good when relying much on forumsbut we have no supporting contract so, this is normal.

Previous Solutions

Yes I did, to try new and improved version of SpagoBI.

Initial Setup

Yes in all-in-one deployment but tricky in application server for production

Implementation Team

Individually implemented and self supported


In terms of ROI, much better than any other solution when it offer full fledged features in open source, planned to have direct contact with SpagoBI for better support.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Still have no firm opinion for now but will be shared after real contact and dealt with SpagoBI

Other Solutions Considered

Yes, I did

Other Advice

It is a good solution we plan to develop more, could be better if more features improved for robustness and stability.
