Dundas BI Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Dundas BI's features:

Luis Silva

Explore, analyze and get fast insights of your data in an easy and fast way using Dundas BI.

2016-10-12

Dundas BI comes with an ETL (Export , Transform and Load) layer, where you can clean and prepare your data, this is done using a canvas where you can drag your tables from a data source, choose the columns you want, aggregate them, join with other tables, filter and a lot of interesting features regarding the ETL process.

Pros

The ETL is also great, it's easy to use and, for more advanced users, it evens permits to write direct sql against tha data source you choose.

Cons

It needs to take a step further and aboard predicted analytics!

End to End Enterprise BI Solution

2016-11-01

I used Dundas BI for almost the last two years, Dundas BI is Enterprise end to end solution where you can connect to your data through wide range of data sources available and the ability to add extra data sources through its open API, Dundas BI contain embedded ETL engine to transform the data and it allows for multiple data access options (Datawarehouse, In memory analysis and direct connection to data). by using Dundas BI you can build your dashboards, reports and scorecard with friendly interface and with rich library of visualization charts from bar and pie charts and ending with relationship chart and histogram chart.

Pros

Flexible tool where you can do what ever you want, I beleive that 95% of use cases can be build in Dundas BI as quick-wins and the rest is possible through JS and HTML5.

Cons

I wish Dundas BI to have out the box integration with web-services as this will be helpful and currently not available but it can be done through programming,

Best Flexible BI tool in the market

2019-11-25

Built dashboards which makes our customers day easier , well organized and informative, which otherwise would require customers to use their own analytics to gain insights.

Pros

This software provides with a breadth of flexibility in terms of integrations, automated user authentication,different charts available for visualizations. The time to market is reduced greatly.

Cons

Documentation for some features is not descriptive enough, which makes it difficult to use some of the cool features the tool provides.

Best functionalities in a BI tool that money can buy

2018-11-01

I am working with Dundas BI since the day it was born (roughly 2014 begining) and I can say that I had only good experiences with it, as long as you know it very well.

Pros

- ease of use - really intuitive - extremly open to external integration, like javascript D3 charts, tools like TinyMCE, picture uploaders etc. - writeback option to send data to a database - R and Python Integration - big array of visualisations and also some interesting ones, like Sankey Driagram, Tree Node Map, Chord Diagram etc.

Cons

- big learning curve for developers - not so self service BI orientated - Dundas diferentiates a dashboard from a report or scorecars, so you have to learn how to do 3 things

Huge bang for the buck

2017-08-28

We are well ahead of schedule at moving from our old visualizations to new Dashboard and reports in Dundas.

Pros

Once created a cube can be used immediately to begin providing very high-quality visualization to customers, or super users in analytics-heavy departments can start creating their own visualization for their members.

Cons

For developers there are several things that take a little while to wrap your head around. Retraining ourselves to simplify our queries will make our whole ETL process more maintainable in the future, but it is a paradigm shift that takes a little while.

Our go to data visualization tool

2015-09-30

Pros

We do like the flexibility, especially through the open API as well as the performance of the entire dashboard.

Cons

Because the product is very new, I wouldn't call it feature complete yet. On the data visualization side of things, we have everything we need, but we need more options in the (still brand new) ETL module.

Great BI tool

2016-09-07

We have chosen Dundas BI because of its flexibility and the ability to integrate with wide range of data sources, the open API platform that allows to do non-traditional integrations with our in-house systems.

Pros

Flexibility to do whatever you want, Open API and known scripting languages like HTML5 and JS where 99% of your word can be accomplished through drag and drop including preparing the connections to database, you can do all the task which usually have to be done through SQL language by using Dundas and only drag and drop like join, sort , filter, union, aggregation and more.

Cons

The tool doesn't support the 3D Charts even it is clear that 3D charts are not professional.

Go for a software that is scalable, robust and innovative and has a strong self service and ad hoc reporting. Technology is moving fast, so you want to partner up with the best in the Industry.. Pay attention to the ease of setting up data connectors, if you using multi tenancy the software provider has to cater for such an environment. Also look out for mobile and tablet compatibility.

Amazing Experience for Your Dashboard's Users

2020-01-02

The fact that they expose all of their API tools to the end user is amazing, and allows you to create some awesome things.

Pros

- After a dashboard has been created, it looks great and works well for the end user

Cons

(All very minor things, which might be addressed in future updates) - Data cube creation, metric sets, and dashboards must be created using their GUI- they cannot be generated using scripts or edited as script
