Review Board

Reviewed 2 years ago

I very much like it and it really helps getting rid of a million excel files and in having one source of truth. Would recommend it!

Pros

Clean and powerful concepts behind, easy to set up new data pools, reports, screens and share it with the users

Cons

UI is web, but does not make use of modern technology. Obiously needed documentation (e.g. for syntax) is not available or accessible. Features are sometimes at different places on the UI where you don't expect it. Would need a cleaner concept

Very Powerful Software

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

Very powerful, we have found that the only limit to how much we can manipulate and enrich our data is our understanding and creativity when it comes to designing data flows.

Cons

It does take a while to learn and feel comfortable using the more advanced features in Board. There was more trial and error than some people may feel comfortable with.

Board Value

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

Quickest implementation from start to finish for smaller to mid-size project needs. Large feature set for a low manageable cost.

Cons

Differentiated support for layouts and features comparing the web and client implementation. Distribution and updating of add-on's is manual and difficult to manage for virtual teams.

#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

I can't do my job without Board

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

For me Board is a very friendly tool, one of the most lovely aspect is very the easy of use, not only from the administrator side but also from the user side

Cons

One of the positive aspect is absolutely the flexibility but it is linked to the structure created in the first phase of implementation

BOARD Review by CFO of American Refining Group

Reviewed 9 years ago
Pros

BOARD is an extremely powerful tool that is allowing us to more quickly analyze and manage our business. It is very user-friendly for creating new reports, dashboards and analyses, and we have expanded its use in numerous areas of the company. We find new uses for it nearly each day. Lastly, the support staff at BOARD is very responsive and great to work with. I have used multiple “business intelligence” tools in the past, and BOARD is, without a doubt, the best. I would 100% recommend this tool to businesses of all sizes and industries.

Cons

Nothing of note; Product keeps getting better with each release.

First project was to ambitious

Reviewed 7 years ago

I want to create a few more projects before making up my mind.

Pros

It is extremely configurable. It accepts data from almost any source. I like the final look, it is enough like excel that end users don't resist too much.

Cons

Complex applications seem to become even more complex. Drilling into layers of configurations is a little confusing until I have spent enough time.

Deviation Analysis and Budget Planning with Board - worldwide

Reviewed 9 years ago
Pros

- Provides the consolidation of data and data structures of various source systems. - Standard reports are defined and simplifies the daily work, so that manual effort is no longer required. - The aggregated data allows ad hoc evaluations according to defined criteria across different data sources. - No programming skills are required for the user. - Budget planning based on past values is possible.

Cons

- Data quality is only as good as they are maintained in the source systems (obviously). - Data can be evaluated according to defined criteria only . - Graphical technology for column, line or pie diagrams could be more modern; though, guess that was done in version 9 (working with version 8.1.4 still).

Great product, great value. More than BI.

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

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

Cons

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.

BOARD user for data analysis, data management, KPI's calculation and reporting

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

User friendly. Very easy to use especially if you don't have strong IT skills or data science background.

Cons

Can require dozens of hours to properly set up data for use (however, once your dashboard is set up, it can be of use for a long time thanks to data refresh options)

Amazing Product

Reviewed 7 years ago

We are mid-way implementing this product but just with demos and strategy discussions we can already tell how easy BOARD is going to make our lives. Its very agile and flexible thats a huge plus for the business users. Looking forward to BOARD 10.1 and all other amazing releases set for this year.

Pros

Flexibility and agility

Cons

It requires a slight learning curve around the entities, relationships, cubes and the procedures. Training users is a slight tough task as there is no ready user manual available.

What I like about this solution is its reliability. I also really like to be autonomous. Finally, the contact with the Board France teams is very appreciable.

Cons

I don't have much perspective on the solution yet but I would say that managing the format by line by line is tedious.

Mi experiencia es que comparto esta carpeta con un equipo de MLM sin ser de la misma línea, pero de la misma marca y nos permite a todos alimentar de información, permitiendo organizar mejor el tiempo y espacio de nuestro teléfono.

Pros

Poder interactuar con los datos, archivos y carpetas, planificar de una forma personalizada y ahorra demasiado tiempo

Cons

La exportación a Excel no la permite destruyendo el formato, sería lo que menos me ha gustado

Board Review

Pros

Board is highly customizable to our business needs. We can manipulate different functionalities to suit our reporting needs.

It is clunky to say the least. It looks like it is an early 2000s Windows OS and seems a little outdated.
