DBxtra Reporting

2012-04-18

I would recommend this product to anyone that may have multiple versions of a database, such as SQL, Oracle, DB2, Informix, Access, etc because of its ability to handle different versions of a database and produce professional reports quickly.

Pros

Can access multiple types of databases Can create reports across application databases provided there are ways to join the data, eg billing and collection system joined with accounting application Query generation is Intuitive Creating professional style reports is intuitive and easy Installation was easy Remote access to reports via browser End user can manipulate data using the data grid 30 day Demo available Existing queries can be cut and pasted into the query designer.

Cons

The product has exceeded our expectations after trying it for 30 days. If I was forced to identify a con it would be that email support may not be as prompt as you would like; however, if you set up a call for support to answer questions, install, or training they ensure that all questions and training issues are resolved.

We implemented DbXtra as visual dynamic reporting alternative, we realized that helped our organization to have valuable information across processes and areas without development constraints and best in value, the benefit/cost ratio compared with other Visual Reporting Tools is very high.

Pros

- Unlimited viewers with several filtering and drill down options

Cons

-ETLs have been well built and debugged in external tools prior to considering DataSets in DbXtra.

Excellent but affordable reporting software

2011-03-22

After searching and trialling many different reporting software DBxtra is not only the most affordable and easy to use, it also has extensive features that challenge most of the more expensive reporting software.

Pros

* Easy to create queries and basic reports * Web Service is an excellent way of sharing data throughout the company *Affordable *Report scheduling service is excellent

Cons

* Creating graphs is difficult * Needs easier conditional formatting.

A practical, good value, enterprise report server tool

2016-12-06

Features we use: Designer on server=yes Designer by users =no Data grids=yes Pivot grids=yes Reports (ie using designer)=yes Scheduled server=once Dashboard=no It doesn't do _everything_ but in terms of basic data grid, reports, pivot it's very good.

Pros

Good value, ease of use, practical.

Cons

Need more options for configuring parameters as its easy to void the use of indexes if you're not careful.

Recommendations to others considering DBxtra

Be aware of what it is - a good equivalent to MS reporting services, though in facts its much better! But its not a drill down style enterprise data sifting tool, you won't get that for ~$5K, so just analyse your reporting requirements carefulyly, DBXtra might cover 95% of it.

Response from Advisionario, S.A. de C.V.


Thanks Jerry for your review!
>>>It would be great if the free report viewer has an authentication mechanism. Currently, any user can double-click the report file on a disk drive to open it if the user can access the disk drive.
The free report viewer does not consider user security; this will require the Report Web Service which takes care of it.

DBxtra let you create reports that can be viewed online and let you see a summarized account of the data while letting you to go down to a detailed view if needed. The interface is easy enough to have a secretary create the report in very few time.

For the Novice and the Pro...........

2011-03-30

Overall I would and have recommended DBxtra to fellow business owners and clients.

Pros

Assigning groups and users is an excellent feature allowing full or restricted access to multiple reports in a project.

Cons

As a Novice, you may have trouble navigating the advanced features of DBxtra as they are not well described and/or defined in detail in the online manual. if your not familiar with Visual Basic coding custom scripting is not something you can use due to the learning curve thrusted upon you.

Does what it says on the box

2011-03-21

If you need a reporting system that is powerful, flexible and easy to use at all levels of user experience, this is it.

Pros

As well as delivering bespoke 'permanent' reports with DBxtra we also write many hundreds of one off ad-hoc reports every year.

Cons

The only very small criticism is that with many hundreds of reports some of which are rarely used it can be difficult to locate the report you require.

DBxtra Report Writer

2011-03-23

I would recommend DBxtra to anyone who needs an easy to use reporting package with lots of functionality but who finds other products expensive or overly complex.

Pros

Generation of reports is very quick and simple and the ability to link to a number of SQL sources at the same time is an excellent feature of the product.

Cons

I genuinely can't really think of any. The help files could be a little clearer in some cases but they have been much improved recently.
