Amazing Experience for Your Dashboard's Users

Reviewed on 02/01/2020

The Creation GUI is very quirky, but the results are well worth putting up with it.
I have never had an idea that I could not eventually create (sometimes, some java script is needed).
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

- Support team is very helpful with basic use cases.

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

- People with zero programming experience are able to create dashboards.

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.

- You cannot copy and paste sections of one dashboard or datacube to another.

- Data cube nodes cannot be copied.

- All programming scripts are stored in an sql database, which means you cannot use version control systems (such as Git Hub).

Great Value, Strong Feature Set

Reviewed on 20/03/2021

Pros

Built in time period over period analysis, built in correlation matrices, ability to auto export data in various forms to excel, pdf, or other formats.

Cons

There is no "undo" button on some pages,which makes error recovery more difficult. However, the company has already indicated they are working on a fix for this.

It's a very good tool for creating cubes from different sources including direct excel sheets.

Reviewed on 13/03/2018

It's not that much complex as compared to other BI tools. The user will understand all of its features not more than one week.

Pros

Very user friendly, won't take much time to understand the UI part, whether it's related to creating a dashboard or creating cubes, measures and dimensions. Even you can create you custom cube by joining tables by simple sql queries. Dundas has its own cloud server, hence when you create any new project including dashboards, charts, measures and dimensions..It uploads everything to its secured cloud drive. It simply took me 1 week to understand the complete functionality of dundas all by myself. Hence I would say it won't take much time to get familiar with it even for a non-technical guy.

Cons

The tool is very useful and user friendly. The only part I felt it's lacking while writing sql queries by using cascading functionality. It won't support or run using this type of queries.

Dundas BI: Cost-effective BI Solution

Reviewed on 12/03/2021

It's a great tool for visualizations, dashboards. It supports connections to virtually every kind of dataset.

Pros

Dundas BI is very intuitive to use because of the modern UI. Also, the customer support is just amazing. On top of that, it is very cost-effective as compared to other BI solutions in the market if you are looking for catering to a large base of users.

Cons

As with perhaps any other BI solution, there is a bit of a learning curve. In addition to that, in case you find any bugs/issues, you have to wait for the fix till the next major (annual) release.

Best functionalities in a BI tool that money can buy

Reviewed on 01/11/2018

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

Nice Feature Set, Some Learning Curve

Reviewed on 21/06/2019

Pros

Rich visualizations; tons of choices for visualizations with almost limitless customization; cube-builder platform is a very convenient environment for ETL - accommodates newbies with graphical tools and coders with convenient SQL, C#, and Python interfaces; state notifications are convenient and intuitive; good security.

Cons

Fairly tough to learn this platform - not always intuitive - hard to do simple things sometimes; limited (statistical) analysis toolset - no ML, though Python integrates nicely and has some application. v6.0 was a good step forward.

Most customer support technicians are outstanding. Very skilled, knowledgeable, helpful. Other times, you have to bounce emails back and forth for a week before getting meaningful answers to your questions.

Massive toolbox if you have time to learn it

Reviewed on 23/05/2019

The initial learning process was extremely time and energy-intensive, but with each learned lesson I gain the ability to do some amazing things with our data delivery and presentation.

Pros

Nearly infinite possibilities. Hundreds of built-in options for extracting, modifying and displaying data plus untold options using scripting solutions.

Cons

The learning curve for anything beyond a basic line graph is basically a vertical surface, largely because of the breadth of tools.

A fresh view of analytics with Dundas BI

Reviewed on 11/10/2015

Pros

Having used other dashboard and reporting softwares, Dundas brings a breath of freshness into the analytics domain. The rendering of graphs, charts and other visualization is very appealing to novice as well as experienced users. The fact that it is web based with the flexibility to connect to a raft of datasets makes it a strong contender.

Cons

As the resultant information that Dundas produces are viewed in different kinds of mediums, the responsive design architecture needs to a bit more intuitive and easy to design and develop. Similar to the sandbox view, there could be other predefined views targeting mobile and tablets.

A very powerful and highly customisable data visualisation tool

Reviewed on 11/07/2017

Pros

The tool allows you to display your data in any way you like. Almost anything can be customised, and the interactions (both built in and through scripting) really make the difference. The support is also excellent!

Cons

There’s so much customisation available, it takes a little while to get use to all the options available, and where they are.

Cons

Dundas BI is on a sharp upward trajectory, check it out!

Reviewed on 02/08/2016

Pros

Dundas BI lets you install, prepare data, visual, and explore your data within minutes. It has a fast and intuitive user interface. No corners have been cut and the features are impressive. You can prepare data as well as a true ETL tool and prepare multi page reports as well as the big stack vendors. Finally, I want to laud their customer service. No other tech company comes close to the high standards Dundas has set for service and reliability.

Cons

There is only a small community of users compared to bigger solutions. It's not the fault of Dundas. It's a niche product and it's something to consider.

A really good DataVisualizzation tool.

Reviewed on 16/03/2016

Pros

I have not had the opportunity to delve in detail this product as I wanted, we have created several dashboards and reports in the evaluation phase of the software and must say it is really a great product, quick enough to develop after a little practice and a lot attractive.
The strength of Dundas BI is definitely its optimization for tablets and mobile devices, it is a SharePoint integrated software, you can use several different data sources, all the most common including OLAP, the development interface is very linear and intuitive.
It has several interesting features such as the functionality of the dynamic system (directly from the dashboard so no need for IT side changes) and useful homescreen user interface so that each user can customize their own "home."

Cons

The software is really good and attractive, just about the license cost of Dundas BI is not very cheap, furtherermore if you want to upgrade your product it requires a payment additional subscription.

After a little learning Dundas BI is a powerful tool with enough functionality for most enterprise environments. Easy to deploy with a simple architecture.

Pros

Speed of deployment is a real plus. Customized white labeling, multitenancy, and a simple administration interface make this a powerful tool.

Cons

Does take a little learning and needs a big server Ram for in memory processing.

Cutting edge BI solution. Very little if anything compares.

Reviewed on 07/01/2016

This product is extremely flexible and very robust. From a BI and visualization standpoint what you can do with it is limitless. And the support and development team at Dundas are top notch. When you need something they're available AND knowledgeable. In the software world this is a rarity. Only con, from a visualization development standpoint it's still a tool for the business analyst or IT professional. But our users aren't complaining - they LOVE the visualizations we're creating.
