Rehman MoharSenior Manager, Software Engineering Client Reporting at a financial services firm
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Everything from the order to fulfillment to the payment process, except for physical packing and shipping, is fully automated for some customer orders."
"The most valuable features assist with understanding data formats and transforming data."
"The technical support on offer through the portal is very helpful and responsive."
"The solution offers good integration capabilities."
"It has a very robust dashboard and ad-hoc reporting."
"Calculations are a little bit faster. It can do the on-the-run calculations much better than other reporting platforms. You don't need any other specific tool. You can use Microsoft Office to start doing things with these reports."
"When working on an elaborate rule, I end up creating it in notepad and then pasting it into the Extended Rule window, which is not convenient."
"The tool requires you to write a lot of code in Java and XSLT, which makes development tough."
"They do not have a solid partner ecosystem, and they do not have a clear roadmap for down the line; they're missing that clear roadmap."
"The reporting features could be better. right now, they are lacking a bit."
"The initial setup was complex and it took a lot of time to set up the infrastructure."
"It is very cumbersome and slow for making any changes. It doesn't have that many visuals to show different graphs and charts. It should have more visuals. It also doesn't support HTML5, which is useful for interactive sessions and reporting with dashboard etc. We are phasing it out because we need a newer platform that provides us more flexibility and more designs. Our use case is just to get the utility type of monthly reports, and we need visuals, customizations, columns, and certain sections on the report to show performance and other things. They are not updating their BI Publisher product, which was known as XML Publisher before Oracle bought it. It could be because they don't have that many clients using it. We are using it because we have this solution for years."
"It is expensive. It is more than 100K for support. You pay for support on top of the standard licensing, which is on a yearly basis."
