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.

IBM Cognos Analytics on Cloud

IBM Cognos Analytics on Cloud is well suited for:
  • Medium and large enterprise, dealing with complexity of scale
  • When user identity, access management, and enterprise information security is a concern
  • Where clients want to do bit more than vanilla reporting like predictive analysis, extrapolation, and analysis
Less appropriate when:
  • Desktop reporting is the need of the hour
  • Client is after self-service reporting only
  • Prediction is the main objective

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.

  • Visually can be improved.
  • Although easy to use, it does feel slow sometimes when there is a lag.

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.

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.

Compared to others, IBM Cognos Analytics on Cloud offers much simpler product options, actually just one as against many-part components for other providers like PowerBI. Unlike other options available in the market, IBM Cognos Analytics has extensive ability to handle large data sources, comes with matured data comparison capabilities and ability to narrate data, analysis journey storyboards, and has both on-premises and cloud options.
