What is our primary use case?
We are experts in process analysis for the biggest companies in Poland. Software AG is trying to sell us on their cloud version, but for now, we still using the on-premises version on our server.

It is easier to use than Qlik, more simple than Tableau, et cetera.
Pros and Cons

"This solution is made to be easy-to-use. If you can use Excel, you can use MashZone."
"MashZone is not very good to use with big data, statistical analysis, or financial analysis. This is not what it is built to do."
