We are using board since 9 years for planning, forecasting & reporting. Great flexibility in designing the planning process, easy to handle, low total cost of ownership.
This is a standard end-to-end BI software with all the features you would expect out of the box. Luckily, they also provide some nice budgeting and financial analysis features.

Board Partner and User

Reviewed 9 years ago
Pros

When looking to partner with a BI software vendor, we had a few key capabilities that we were looking for in a solution. These capabilities included: 1) the product must be easy to setup and configure and not require lengthy project implementation timelines; 2) the product must be able to empower the end users to create dynamic visualizations to support the needs of their business; 3) support for...

Cons

There is some redundancy in the product, which at times can and will require users to have to repeat a formula on multiple reports instead of making the change once and all the reports get updated. This is an area that I see the product improving in overtime.

All in one bi tool for non it people

Reviewed 3 years ago

We use Board for an integrated BDG process, with approx 100 users. The process is: sales BDG from salesmen via web, Cost center budg, purchase BDG, up to P&L and Balance Sheet /Cash flow. Before we have tons of Excel files, now the flow is smooth and managed a workflow in Board.

Pros

With Board you can have in the same platform bi reporting, a planning tool for your budget/forecast, you can perform simulation. You can setup your Board application without being an IT expert on coding. Board has definetely helped to increase the level of knowledge of the business

Cons

Performances with large set of numbers can be improved

Board boosts productivity

Reviewed 2 years ago

Board has a set of valuable features to perform efficient analysis, provide quality graphs and reports with current data. This adds a lot of value to decision making in our organization.

Pros

It's easy to interact with data and perform analysis from attractive reports. It allows you to create completely new dashboards and reports or you can simply modify the pre-established ones. Board has a toolkit that is an excellent tool for creating custom analysis and planning applications, this saves time and resources.

Cons

It has a considerable learning curve and needs to incorporate documentation that allows new users to use its full potential more quickly.

Easy to implement & to deploy new project

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

I've started to use Board in 2007, with 6.0 version. In this 11 year of use Board continue in develop easy to use and easy to develop Environment. I like most the support, in particular when they give not only solve to the problem, but give develop solution. Another issue I like is Board in "ALL IN ONE", so you don't need another tool to make your CPM environment . I think that this tools to give to customer the best quality price Ratio (CPM Product)

Cons

I really don't have anything to say in this box, but if I must say something, the documentation could be improved.

#1 BI & CPM Tool

Reviewed 8 years ago

I have been using Board Mit for one year in my previous working experience. Later, I had chance to get in touch with IBM Cognos, MS SQL based BI Tools, Oracle BI and Qlikview. I am defentively acknowledged that Board MIT is the best tool outhere: unique platform (IT skill huge savings), easy to use (fast adoption across the departments), fully functional on dashboarding, reporting, analisys, analytics, what-if and what-for scenarios (save tons of money and time).

Pros

Easy to use, complete, scalable, desireable for business orchestration.

Cons

The platform in itself is an instrument. To gather the best out of your investment you have to run a proper partner selection. Software Houses add lower value respect to business oriented consultants

Pros

It connects to virtually any data source and easily will produce dashboards enabling great analysis! You are limited by what you can imagine.

There is a learning curve regarding the terminology and logic of the product, but that is more a result of changing the way you think about data.

Selecting an IBP for a startup

Reviewed 2 years ago

It has been a pleasure to work with the professional services team - they feel like an extension of our in-house team and provide great tips for best practices.

Pros

Startups are characterized by chaos and constant change. Brining in an IBP tool helps structure some of the chaos and ensure the company has clean, reliable data. It is very beneficial to start this when the company is small and hence the tech debt is low. However most IBP platforms are very expensive and do not lend themselves to be easily modified and maintained in-house. BOARD provides up with both of these critical needs at an affordable price point.

Cons

We are at the beginning of our journey with BOARD, working to define our processes and data. So I do not have any inputs on this at the moment.

Excellent solution for analytics and BI/CPM solutions

Reviewed 9 years ago

We have used Board since 1997 and found it to be an outstanding solution that allows a real focus on the value of insight and analytics, as opposed to more traditional flat enterprise type reporting. Speed of deployment, capability through BI and CPM functionality is second to none which has allowed us to provide multiple solutions for the business and end customers that truly add value.
