Manuel Franco

Ease and powerfull BI analysis tool

2017-10-19

I recommend the tool. Friendly user, you can have very good dashboards using only a simple spreadsheet.

Pros

Low cost against BO, Cognos,... You can simple use Tables, databases, web tables and a lot of other kind of connection to use the data.

Cons

It don´t have a flexible map as a standard. You should acquire a "Geo Analysis" add in for a best use.

One of the best Enterprise BI tools on the market

2016-06-08

Here is why I think it is the best enterprise BI tool (compared to other enterprise BI tools -- SAP BO, Tableau, SAS, Cognos) - It has its own ETL.

Worst of all modern BI tools I've worked with

2018-06-28

Cognos is years behind the modern BI tools like Qlikview/Sense, Power BI and Tableau.

Pros

Customizeable, if you know how to code. Probably could be a good tool if you have a team of trained Cognos experts that deliver all the reports and dashboards in very old-school Enterprise way.

Cons

Very very bad UI, unintuitive, messy and buggy. Very fiddly to get things right when creating reports.
