Devart ODBC Driver for Oracle

We are using it mainly for automation. We are using HP Quality Center as our automation tool and started using Devart ODBC for connectivity to Oracle DB. We have a lot of queries in our scripts that make several connections to the db for a particular user scenario. Devart ODBC has improved the overall runtime needed for the scripts.

Vena is able to streamline our budget reporting process, as we are able to provide standardized reports to different stakeholders with increased accuracy and level of detail. The templating solutions it provides means we can create up to date reports without having to allocate massive amounts of resources, opening us up to client ad-hoc requests and improved analysis.

Pros

Devart ODBC Driver for Oracle

  • Performance.
  • Reliable.
  • Deployment.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vena Solutions

  • Vena provides all the customizable flexibility and advanced calculation that you can squeeze out of Excel because Excel is used as the front-end. You can tailor the reporting and budget templates to your exact needs and leverage your existing Excel skills.
  • Even though you work in Excel, the data is all controlled by a multi-dimensional cloud database. So your work is safe. Changes are auditable, and nobody has to rely on sharing Excel files between each other and tracking the latest version.
  • Vena's workflow system can be extremely simple if that's what you need. Or you can build some fairly complex process flows for any task.
Aaron Andersen | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Devart ODBC Driver for Oracle

  • It would be good if the connection details are stored on the cloud based on the user login so that even if the software is corrupted, it can be pulled in automatically from the cloud upon reinstallation.
  • It would great if video demos were available for the key features of the tool. That would make it a lot simpler for the user when using it the first time.
  • User friendliness can be improved.
Charanya Rajagopalan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vena Solutions

  • In Report Books, the option to run reports as PDF would be helpful.
  • In Report Books, the option to add more than one report to the book would be extremely useful. Currently, users receive multiple emails because we can only have one report per book.
  • In Report Books, the ability to output files to a directory rather than sending them via email would be a nice enhancement.

We have been extremely satisfied with the Vena Solutions product and have been able to become more efficient in our budgeting, forecasting and salary planning processes, as well as adding functionality and accuracy that was not possible in the past. Administrators no longer have to keep track manually of each department's budgeted net, but can use a report created in Vena to report this information, as well as see which departments have not yet submitted information. Customer service has always been very responsive as well

One is only limited by their knowledge of Excel functions and basic understanding of database management. One does not need to know VBA, VB, C++ or even SQL.

The Vena consultant had great knowledge of both the Vena solution and Excel and Excel functions. He was able to help suggest ways to build our templates that met our requirements using Excel functions we had not previously considered using. And we have been able to use the Excel information he provided in other ways outside of Vena. He was very patient and flexible as we learned the Vena tool and created templates

Alternatives Considered

Devart ODBC Driver for Oracle

Devart is more feature rich and the direct connectivity to the DB beats out the tool provided by easysoft. We tested both of the software with the freeware version on a trial project. The project team gave a demo of both the tools to the project owner and development manger. Devart got the votes even though it was a little costlier than easysoft.
Charanya Rajagopalan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vena Solutions

The main contender with Vena was Prophix. Most of the other products we looked at were not capable of the complexity we needed. We chose Vena because the Excel templates made it look like the budget we were working with. We were able to use syntax we were familiar with for formulas and achieve the desired results. We knew any product was going to be a challenge but Vena was the appropriate choice for us.

Return on Investment

Devart ODBC Driver for Oracle

  • Performance of the transactions has improved.
  • It meets our business objectives.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vena Solutions

  • From my observation, we did get a return on investment. We have FP&A tool first and foremost.
  • We are dealing with 1 financial system to get data as suppose to several sources from before.
  • For sure, Vena Solutions helped many finance teams domestically within our company with financial reporting.
