Start & the rest will follow. Just keep an eye open that design change to a pivot table can be problematic.

1) The ease with which self-service BI can be achieved via a small scale trail deployment

The company moved from paper based reporting to full dashboard reporting in the Sales function

Room for Improvement:

Very little

Use of Solution:

2 years

Deployment Issues:


Stability Issues:

In some cases making a design change to a Pivot table can be problematic if an additional dimension is added to a report that has a “matrix” layout like the following:

Scalability Issues:

None – During a stress test it was able to load 38 million records without any problems on simple dual core PC with ONLY 1 GB OF RAM (absolutely amazing. I would not have believed it to be possible but I did the test myself)

Customer Service:

There are frequent follow-ups from the vendor once you register on their web site.

Initial Setup:

Very straight forward for a simple 1 application installation. Just pick 32 or 64 bit and go!

Implementation Team:

Any user can implement a simple 1 application installation, then just follow good communication protocol with the IT team to get access to central data stores and you are away.

Other Solutions Considered:

Silver, Spotfire from Tibco, Tableau Public, MicroStrategy’s free Reporting Suite, Roambi Analytics, Webalo, YellowFin, Jaspersoft
