Good for letting your investors, employees and others know at a glance how your company is doing. The interface is clean and organized well. I just wish more of the app's functionality was available for testing and implementation. "Coming soon" is not really encouraging when we already have been waiting for a year or more.

Dundas BI

I do think that Dundas BI is well suited for many applications and companies that are looking for a robust BI tool. Dundas BI has much in the way of customizing the user interface as well as the reporting both internally and externally. It needs to be more robust in the way it connects with other products out there, though, and since we were using a lot of external vendor's software we needed to switch to a more versatile BI tool.

Pros

9 Spokes

  • Grouping several apps in one place for easy viewing.
  • Clean dashboard interface that looks uncluttered when viewing several apps at once.
  • Setting up the apps is a breeze when the platform supports them.

Dundas BI

  • Dundas BI is very easy to install. They have clearly put a lot of work into packaging their software and also ensuring it is smart enough to go out and get the things it needs if they don't already exist. It is really easy to install.
  • Dundas BI, by using HTML5, makes it very easy to visualize the data. Every modern browser now supports HTML5 without requiring Silverlight, Java, or some other clunky technology that has recently been banned by Homeland Security.
  • Dundas BI makes it very easy to create data connections and start to build the dashboards that bring value to your organization. Everything is done in an easy to use and figure out interface. You can also drag and drop data right into the panes as usable data. Very slick.

Cons

9 Spokes

  • Integration with apps that are listed. Some of them are not supported yet and it seems the wait is taking longer than I'd like.
  • iPhone support. It would be nice to have this in the app store. Not available as of 04/25/2018.

  • Consider publishing a book, filled with a say 4 week course, from the ground up, no SQL for beginners that can be done on www.w3schools.com, but detailed step by step scenarios, using a readily available database. with all script mechanics and tutorials structured in a self learning style.
  • I am always keen to have more step by step examples, members of the Dundas community should all host a forum similar to sourceforge.com (where there are a number of people using Dundas and helping other users debug their dashes).
  • Explanation of limitations, understanding what is possible and what isn't.
  • it would be nice to have better debugging for the scripts.
  • Better menu control in the BI 2.5 interface, the old 5.0 GUI was slightly better for development purposes, but 2.5 is faster and more ductile, so its a 2 way knife edge on this one.
  • FAQ's page, more detail, loads of queries, examples, support.

Support was helpful in the beginning but no longer needed because I didn't use the software as much. The experience that I did have with support was very friendly but not enough to give a good review. If the support team was called for initial setup, video chat or messenger app was used.

The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and responsive. I always get an answer to my issue, and in a timely manner. I've never had better technical support.

Alternatives Considered

9 Spokes

I actually chose QuickBooks (currently using) and Method (used for a month) before deciding that 9 Spokes is just good for looking at a few apps in one place. I'll keep checking back with them to see if they have improved. I wouldn't be surprised if 9 Spokes improves their product within the next 6-12 months.

Dundas BI

Much better for multi-tenancy. Power bi just doesn't have many features and is just lackluster. Telerik doesn't look as good although slightly more powerful with data manipulation. Too many BI reporting tools out there don't offer multi-tenancy and I have no idea why. It is pretty important. Dundas is just the best if multitenancy is needed
