Dundas BI Pros Dundas BI Cons
Ease of use
  • Very flexible, easy-to-use tool with a well-designed UI. Product is also very easy to deploy.
Product maturity
  • This is a relatively new product, and still has some missing functionality and rough edges.
Connectors/API
  • A large number of users comment on the ease of connecting to a very large number of heterogeneous data sources either through pre-built connectors, or by building integrations with the API. The powerful API includes .NET, JavaScript, and REST.
Documentation and tutorials
  • Several customers say more documentation and tutorials are needed both for business users and especially for developers. In particular, the API needs to be more fully documented. Also, there is no user community.
Visualizations
  • Very good, flexible and customizable visualization capabilities, although some users would like to see more chart types like radar charts.
Learning curve
  • Although the product is well designed and relatively easy to use, it can be intimidating to new users as there is a learning curve to get comfortable on the product.
HTML5-compliant
  • The product is HTML5 compliant which makes it possible to create re-sizeable dashboards that can be displayed in a variety of form factors.

Support
  • Dundas provides excellent quality support with hands-on WebEx sessions to take control of user's screen when needed. It's clear that this is a high priority for the company.
