Ability to aggregate reports into dashboard and then drill into records in the system from the reports.

Flexible architecture that provides solutions to the end-user as well as more advanced analysts.

2017-08-11

We also use it for analytics on or internal processes such as monitoring or ETL activities.

Pros

The embedded analytics model lets you develop customized solutions that can be given to end-users. but it is also powerful enough that it can be used for more advanced purpose.

Cons

Most complains are related to people trying to use out of the box features that need a little bit of in-depth knowledge - mainly SQL and database related - in order to use the whole potential of Izenda. Charts start to look and feel a bit outdated, but each new release brings updates that address the problem.

Great embedded BI solution

2017-10-27

Integrating izenda 7 series has giving our product the ability to the end user to create and administer dashboards and ad hoc reporting, ultimately giving the end user better insight into their data without having to contact us for base report modifications.

Pros

The visualizations and ad hoc reporting capabilities are great.

Cons

Having no export of the reports makes it hard to mange tractability with source control. 7 series is still quite immature with a lot of bugs.

Positive Experience - fulfills our customers requirements

2017-10-25

Izenda gives our clients access to their data, in an easy to use form, without them requiring direct database access.

Pros

With the new version of Izenda, it has been easy to implement segregation by Tenant whilst allowing us, as administrators, to share reports between tenants.

Cons

Adding relationships between tables\views was a labour intensive task and I had to repeat it for several tenants.

Perfect analytic from a precise system

2018-06-28

Pros

After implementation this software in your company you will forget about all this stuff because all the control of the results of each part of your business you will be able to control through one program where your subordinates will put all the important data.

Cons

The system allows us to make visualization of our data through graphs and so on, nevertheless the ability to compare all these current charts with the old ones still did not realize here and that is what we want to be added.

Powerful and easy to use BI Tool

2017-10-19

Because of Izenda's seamless integration, our customers have a powerful BI tool at their disposal that looks like a natural extension to our product

Pros

Another main advantage is that users have a great deal of control in terms of formatting and displaying reports. If required, a report can be formatted "Pixel Perfect" for accurate printing requirements.

Cons

It would be great if power users were able to input a SQL statement to build a data set. Also another one of the challenges we encountered was the deployment of Izenda to other internal and external environments.

Izenda Embedded BI - gives true Ad-Hoc reporting to your user base.

2016-08-05

As a provider of bespoke software solutions I first started to look at Izenda about 7 years ago as a means to provide true Ad-Hoc reporting and to get away from having to develop reports in SSRS.

Pros

It pushes the reporting burden away from IT and into the hands of the user and allows for complex reporting in a simple to use UI experience.

Cons

The documentation whilst getting better still needs to be kept more up to date

Recommendations to others considering Izenda

Make sure you setup a vanilla instance and get this working as a proof of concept and also use this as a benchmark before embarking on major development work and customizations but remember that it is very flexible. Think about the data and database, some of the perceived problems are actually in the data and the database and it's integrity and whilst Izenda can help it still needs to be pointed to stable data source(s).

We use this as a white label reporting tool in our software offering; it has been a great product.

2017-08-02

It has been a much appreciated additional offering in our software suite.

Pros

Ease of use it at the top of the list; it is relatively easy to get users up and running on designing their own reports and customizing existing ones.

Cons

It can be a bit slow with LARGE data sets; we are still on a slightly older version, so this may have been corrected in newer versions.

2017-12-04

Pros

Additionally, the UI visualization renderings will add a lot of "pop" to our product to drive up customer adoption.

There are way too many settings which would confuse our users. This requires us to craft our own version of settings to hide that complexity.
