Contour BI overview

What is Contour BI?

Contour BI is a business intelligence (BI) platform combining report distribution, data analysis, and interactive reporting. Contour BI runs on an in-memory parallel calculation OLAP engine and provides users with highly interactive, rich visualizations.

Contour BI makes it possible to create analytical portals publishing interactive reports, scoreboards and dashboards, including pivot tables, charts, gauges and multilayer maps, and all without a knowledge of programming.

Contour BI solutions are easily embeddable in websites and web applications, and the look and feel of the BI portal can be adapted to the style of the host site.

Collaboration tools allows users to comment on tables and charts, subscribe to reports, share by email, Twitter, Facebook, and copy and paste html code to add reports and charts to their web pages.

Contour BI supports dozens of data sources, including all major DBMS’s and many file formats and can easily be integrated into the organization infrastructure or software products such as ERPs, CRMs, and statistical and survey software.

Very powerful platform with advanced technology inside. Highly professional team which is always ready to help meet the requirements of the customer.

Pros
I would separate reviews into 2 perspectives - project owner and end user. I am going to focus on more project owner perspective. For project owner it is not only important to bring value to company and having outstanding end user experience but also keep in mind ease of scale, support and maintenance. Project owner should also meet the budget and stakeholders expectations. Here are some pros for the project owners. 1. One dashboard can process and operate very large data set retaining high speed for end user. This is unique feature that lacks in other popular BI platforms. Below are the benefits of this feature: - Speed and simplicity to create different dashboards from one big data set instead of building separate SQL queries to databases for each dashboard. - Enlarging number of reports without spending extra budget to build them. - Reduce time spent on testing and data verification. - Easy to support. 2. Ease of setting roles for data access restriction for all measures and dimensions. 3. User-friendly automated report mailing service. 4. Intuitive interface for end users.

Cons
Some sophisticated chart types are not available. Good news that they can be added if requested.
