With Izenda, we can offer our trusted users dashboards, generated custom reports, and ad-hoc reporting, right within our own operation. Integrating the Izenda tool directly into our usage meant that we were suitable to use a small corridor of Izenda as core functionality while reserving the more advanced sections of Izenda for guests willing to pay redundancy for the licensing.

This product is very convenient to use and implement and is considered a "de facto" standard in the Business Intelligence sphere. First of all, it contains numerous features in terms of visualization, data provisioning, data source integration which makes it a perfect tool for the development of BI analytics. Secondly, it provides great capabilities for the development of data markets for the whole development team. Thirdly, the sharing capabilities of dashboards that are updated in a real-time manner provides great incentives for end-users

Pros
Izenda
  • User and tenant management is excellent. It is very simple to implement and easy to manage.
  • The configurability and customizability are excellent. We have access to all aspects of the system and have rebranded and configured single sign on. The users really like it.
  • Reports and visualizations work. There's lots of flexibility and users enjoy creating reports themselves.

  • It is very easy to connect multiple data sources for a single report. You can use CSV, Excel, database integration, etc.
  • Power Bi supports Python as well, which makes it a lot easier for us as it is known by most of our team.

Cons
Izenda
  • It would be superb if power users were ready to input a SQL statement to create a knowledge set.
  • The data source selection view while creating a replacement report.

  • Similar to how Excel has VBA, Microsoft Power BI uses PowerQuery (M/DAX). Though DAX is similar to Excel in terms of how it is written, I just think it's something that would be difficult for new users to figure out.
  • Something I would like to see done differently in Microsoft Power BI is the ability to have presets for sorting/arranging of visualizations. Though it is nice to arrange the dashboard freely, it would also be nice to have preset arrangements based on visualizations (for those of us bad at making dashboards look appealing).
  • With Microsoft Power BI, it is hard to show others your dashboard using the free platform (unless you show them from your computer/account). This can cause issues if your firm is trialing Microsoft Power BI before purchase.

Usability

With the help of Izenda, we are able to build a mature foundation that users can quickly customize to their needs. Once permissions are layered in, we can simply use the same report and only show fields a specific user has access to.

We compared to other end user tools like Qlik, Tableau and Power BI. These tools are very refined but not positioned for OEM/Embedded use cases. The closest we came was logi and Birst and the price and business model of Izenda was much more appealing

I haven’t used any other software that can be compared to this and that is a good thing as this means that this software is the best one on the market. Tough other apps may exist we only use Microsoft Power BI because it is simply the best app out there.

Microsoft
  • Saved a significant amount of time for reporting current rollout status to project stakeholders
  • Project stakeholders were able to view the live dashboards at any time so felt they had a better understanding of the rollout status
  • Project stakeholders found it beneficial that they were able to set their own filters. For example, to view rollout status for their own departments.
