Ease of development. Data Discovery and Analytics
Improvements to My Organization:
Great insight into our data and aides both business explanations and data analysis.
Room for Improvement:
Use of Solution:
Once your user base or applications get large you do need a powerful server with lots of RAM.
Excellent and great community interactions as well.
This was our my first in memory data discovery tool. I have used more static reporting solutions such as SSRS, BOXI etc but they are not really a comparable product to QlikView, Tableau or Spotfire.
Very simple, standard desktop installation file and when performing the server install it requires very little Windows Server knowledge.
Cost and Licensing Advice:
Depends on licence version purchased an number of licenced users.
One off software purchase plus 20% annual maintenance plan.
Other Solutions Considered:
It is a great product that is easy to learn.
Ensure you still put the necessary work into the "back-end" design as even thought the new breed of BI tools are easy to use, having a well designed data structure behind the model will make the speed and scalability that much better.
