Helped to integrate planning processes across our customer's organizations

What is our primary use case?

Our end user is a chemical industry company, and they did a lot of reports in Excel. We use Board to create reports automatically, instead of with Excel.

Pros and Cons

  • "By using Board we can do a lot of free analysis. We can change the layout of a table and even the end-user can change the layout of a table. And in Board 11.2 you can save the layout. That's very useful for the customer, it's a very good function."
  • "What could be better is the manual... nowadays, most people use a web client, but on the Board manual website, a lot of the information is only about the Windows client. If they could update that, it would be helpful."

What other advice do I have?

With Board I have learned how to deal with the master data and how to think about workflow, dataflow. and the structure of the cube.
