We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The features that I have found most valuable are the user experience, the credentialing, and that BigID is user friendly. Additionally, you can deploy to several other Microsoft platforms and you can use it for other things, like a bigger element or a report."
"This is an established product with powerful data analysis and varied options for user entry points."
"The solution is very stable. We haven't faced any issues with glitches or bugs. We haven't had any crashes."
"If you compare it to SQL, the memory and development times are very quick."
"The technical support is excellent."
"In terms of which features I have found most valuable, I would say the importing and exporting features. Additionally, the data sorting, categorizing and summarizing features, especially how it can summarize based on categories. These are the key features."
"The product offers very good flexibility."
"In terms of what could be improved, when you're looking in a BigID file, you cannot really get the whole file. You have to export it to download it to another platform that allows you to completely view it, or run a program. That was one of the things that was really a disappointing point for me. Not to be able to view everything. There's a lot more data, but you can't get it all at once."
"Very little needs to improve but perhaps a nicer graphic interface and remaining competetive in the growing field of data analytics."
"The pricing of the solution needs to be improved. They need to work to make it more affordable."
"We find we often have to go back and re-train users when there are changes made to the solution because the changes are not intuitive."
"With SAS Data Management, you have to purchase an external driver, configure all of the tables for all of the data that you will extract from Salesforce. It's not a straightforward process."
"One problem is accessing the data using a solution other than SAS. The SAS data, which we create in the SAS, cannot be accessed by other tools. We can't open those data in other applications. So we need to have that application in place."
"The solution could use better documentation."
"While it is even free for personal use on the cloud, it can be expensive for desktop installations and enterprise use."
