Well packaged and easy to figure out but needs better visualization

What is our primary use case?

In one particular case, we had reporting issues and we were sucking data off of a couple of different systems into a data monitor. You might call it a data rig now. Due to the fact that we did that, we were using the transformation pieces to pull it into that data monitoring, and put out some operational-type reports. The fun part about it was because we could do a lot with it and it didn't need necessarily another layer reports. It was pretty much encapsulated well already.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution's features are all just wrapped up in one nice easy package. I don't need a lot of toolsets to get everything I need done."
  • "It doesn't have quite the flexibility of a Tableau or something like that. Many users are more comfortable with Tableau and I'm not quite sure why that is right now, but it seems to be the case."

What other advice do I have?

I'm not sure which version of the solution we are currently using. We've updated it a few times over the years. I'd advise other users to just to be really clear on what you're trying to accomplish. You've got to make sure it's the right product for what you're trying to do. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.

Great condition-based analysis with good flexibility and pretty good technical support

What is our primary use case?

We implemented this solution for reporting purposes primarily. We got it for the client a few months back. This whole system is an EBS system. We used the solution to pull the data from the EDA source system and convert it. Once a data valid solution is developed, we model the data model using RCB, and then we create reports for the service contract module.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is easy to use and very flexible."
  • "The solution needs to be easier to scale."

What other advice do I have?

I'm not the latest version of the solution, however, I do have information on the latest one as well. I'm using the 11G version. The latest one is 12C. I worked on it two years ago. Our company loves the benefits of this solution and has used it for a long time. Even with new products on the market, they continue to use the product. I'd advise companies considering using the solution to make sure they explore the product quite a bit before fully implementing it. Overall, I'd rate the solution at eight out of ten. Each version continues to get better and better. I would definitely give 10 out…

Great storyboarding and storytelling feature with an easy initial setup

Pros and Cons

  • "The initial setup is quite straightforward."
  • "The AI-based features could be further enhanced by the solution."

What other advice do I have?

I'm a user, not a vendor or a reseller. We use the enterprise version of the product. In terms of BI tools, I'd advise others that this is one of the best. It was easy to use once we had the initial training that is required. The features such as storytelling, AI based sessions, are great. I would recommend it to other companies for sure. On a scale from one to ten, I'd rate it at an eight.
