https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/gv/rb/XI7SESF1B71F.JPEGBirst is the best tool we found to meet our needs, but has some significant issuesWe use Birst in addition to a separate data warehouse to ingest Google Analytics, event tracking, operational and sales data. We build reports that are distributed across the company by giving everyone a Birst account and having them log in to view relevant dashboard. There are two use cases: 1. The Data warehouse team has modeled the data into a data mart in the data warehouse. In this case we use a Live Access connection to create a report. 2. The data warehouse team has not modeled the data in the data warehouse yet, so the data is ingested with Birst Connect and then transformed with Birst ETL. The data is reloaded through Birst Connect by kicking off automated Windows Task Scheduler.,Easy to create visualizations Very attractive visualizations Connect to many data sources,Terrible documentation and training resources. Sometimes not enough documentation, sometimes it is WRONG! Often we are told to post our issues to the Birst user forum, as if we should be able to figure out our own problems rather than Birst troubleshooting their own product. Sometimes when there are bugs we are told they will only be addressed by voting on them as feature requests, not addressing the bugs. Some feature requests are years old. When using Birst Connect there is a lot that can go wrong on the Birst side of things completely out of our control, and then we are waiting on technical support to resolve. In particular the space can get "locked" if we try to process while it's already processing. I've also experienced where a staging table was deleted in the user interface, but not the backend of the tool, so it failed until the support team manually removed it. Birst technical support is very weak. They often do not answer the phone, and they always ask to go on a call with you after submitting a ticket, no matter if we've provided extensive documentation within the ticket. The ETL features are incredibly hard to use, though very powerful. As someone who has an understanding of database theory I found the fact that the training refused to teach to "primary keys" and "foreign keys" and "facts and dimensions" and instead made us learn a whole different terminology of "levels" and "hierarchies" very confusing. Processing is entirely mysterious to us. There's little explanation of what is happening when it is processing, which makes it hard to troubleshoot when things go wrong. Terrible or non-existent error messages. When a scripted source fails to execute the log in the scripted source doesn't even generate an error message. We've also found that the error message "data format is not correct" doesn't actually mean that, but can mean a whole bunch of other things related to the model. Birst does not allow snowflake data structure more than 2 levels deep. This is a problem as our data warehouse is a snowflake, so we always have to flatten our tables. Even though the visualization tool makes nice views, it is not as robust as even years old versions of Tableau. In particular I've found I often export my data out of Birst and into Tableau when I want to visualize two or more attributes. Birst sends its users to the user Forum, but half of the issues on there have not been resolved. There's a person whose job it is to reply whether the users have figured out a solution. Why is this our responsibility to figure out their tool? Very, very little support for using Live Access to connect to data. Some of the Birst support staff don't even know how to use it.,3,Ability to meet corporate data standards such as scale and security Ability to do ad-hoc analysis and scheduled reports Increased adoption, usage and self-service Other,GoodData, Microsoft Power BI, Tableau Desktop, Tableau Server, Domo, Looker, TIBCO BusinessConnect, Pentaho and Datameer Analytics Solutions,10,Yes,3,YesBirst debunked.Birst is being used in multiple departments across the organization. Zalora is an eCommerce company with data touching all the departments. Birst is now primarily used as a data extraction tool for operational purposes, hence it's our primary tool for self-service data needs. Birst is also used by several departments for simple ad-hoc analysis. Birst is primarily used by the fulfillment center to know item or product level KPIs. Birst Live data and dashboards were used for a long time to track marketing campaign sales and discounts. Until recently we shifted to other platforms as we needed more real-time analytics. Traditionally birst sufficed most of the business problems and use cases, however due to the technological transformations we had to pivot our platform to other alternatives.,Birst is a cloud based BI platform and hence all our data is hosted on the cloud platform. Zalora had lot of data users who used to query the database, all these loads where shifted to birst and helped our in-house databases to function smoothly and concentrate on other critical processes. Birst report scheduling functionality has been very useful for our company. reports are scheduled to emails to several operational heads to help them monitor action items and help to improve our operational KPIs. Birst has been flexible with the number of users who can access the tool. Most of the BI platforms currently charges companies based on the users who would use the BI tool. Birst is useful in performing time based KPIs such as YoY, WoW, MoM, Qtr-o-Qtr etc. There are several functions available which helps to perform time based calculation. Birst is very useful in performing aggregations at different level (and different dates) as its based on star schema. As all the reports are in cloud, birst reports can be easily shared with one another and acts as a report repository Birst helps to maintain single source of truth and helps enforce standardized definitions for all our KPIs Visualizer report rendering is of high quality and quite fast for simple data requests and pull Birst provides snapshot functionality which is extensively used in our company to maintain the price logs and changes of all our merchandise.,Birst being a cloud based platform is a both a blessing and a curse. as the data scales the performance of the tool deteriorates. although simple KPI reports can be quickly obtained, load intensive functions such as STAT or LET becomes hard to perform. The customer service is rather poor when the problems at hand are tough. The turnaround time for some of the bigger problems can go on for months without an alternative solution The processing time for each space is not consistent. outside US servers the processing time is very time consuming. Our APAC spaces in birst gets updated data by afternoon of a working day. The scheduled reports might not come in time if the server is busy. We have had instance in which the scheduled reports would come a whole 24 hours later than the scheduled time. Birst is a very difficult setup for change. If the data in the company is changing constantly then birst is not the tool to be held with. after implementing best practices, we were able to bring down the processing time of birst live to max 25 mins. When the size of the data scales, powerful functions such as STAT (bring data at a different level and aggregates in the report) and LET are hard to perform. We have had instance in which STAT would run for more than an hour to render reports Birst designer are still in FLASH and the vizualiser which is in HTML5 lacks several critical functions like scheduling, notifications, saving expressions and managing them. this leaves the customer to use the designer module instead of the vizualiser module, however the support for designer has been removed without keeping in mind that the visualizer component is incomplete. Plug n play analytics is hard to perform unless you have certain technical knowledge. Data in flat files or excel files cannot be analyzed or visualized instantly like it can be done in tableau or any other BI Platform. External Inputs cannot be made on the report. External parameters and data cannot be blended with the existing report. For example, if we had to increase our discounts by x% how much would our sales be? these kind of questions are hard to perform. The syntax of each module in birst is different. This shows lack of team work within birst. for example. In designer module the ubiquitous if statement is denoted by IF and in Admin it is denoted by IIF. this would lead to end user being confused. Certain important critical functions such as Report bursting, querying sample data and parameterized reporting are available only to the admins and not the end users. Most of the code change requests in customer service tickets are still pending to date and some of them are unresolved. Birst has quite a bit of learning curve as it has its own syntax. one would need to be educated to understand the different types of expressions which exist in birst. Birst lacks search functionality in designer and searching in visualizer is rather tedious if you have several KPI named similarly The Pivot Control functionality is rather poor and pathetically mimics the pivot of excel Advance analytics is not possible. Different statistical models cannot be implemented. this would require data to be pumped out to perform advance analytics The Tableau-Birst connect is limited to 500GB, hence if the data scales the ODBC connector would not be useful The Data logs thrown out by birst needs to be more intutive and detailed. this would help new users to better understand the problems and troubleshoot it effectively Usage tracking of birst is tedious which would require a separate space to be created just to track users. Renewal costs are expensive given the price per BI Platform is coming down in recent years with more and more products coming online.,4,Speed and agility Ability to meet corporate data standards such as scale and security Ability to do ad-hoc analysis and scheduled reports,Tableau Desktop, Tableau Server and Microsoft Power BI,4,No,3,Yes,One of our team members accidently deleted a space in birst which was critical for the business. There was no means of recovering the space from our end. The support was very helpful in restoring in the space for us from scratch. This helped to save a lot of time on rebuilding the reports, rebuilding the report schedules and dashboards altogether and also manage the users. Although the support was exceptional we were also charged a premium for this. Ideally a good BI tool should have multiple protocols in place when an important space needs to be deleted.,Time based functionality such as YoY,MoM are very easy to perform. Report scheduling for several reports based on parameters Fixed and Routine Dashboards and Reports,Statistical Modelling and advance analytics Math based functions and other Excel similar Functions are unavailable No search functionality and Buggy Flash interface,Yes, but I don't use itMulti-tenant reviewBirst is being used by Acxiom as a multi-tenant reporting system for Acxiom clients to review business and operational data from several databases and database types.,Deployment for multi-tenant environments is much easier than others I have used. I like how easy it is to set up many dashboards and views that look standard and professional without a lot of formatting. The query speed is very good for large amounts of data if there are adequate aggregates set up.,Documentation of the product in the help files is outdated and incomplete in many cases. Several features are only documented in the community because enough people have asked questions about a topic. The search functionality in both help and community is really bad. Support tickets take way too long to answer and the answers are often inadequate. I have never worked with a company that has so few people on the support team or that took so long to respond. This is my biggest complaint and one that may result in switching products if it is not addressed. User administration is scattered into many different places and bulk updates are only available for creating users. There should be bulk updates for adding users to spaces and to groups (possibly do all 3 things in one command?) The Data Flow and Manage Local Sources code can't be used simultaneously and there is no documentation as to why. When a use case comes up where you need to switch from one to another it causes big issues.,8,Speed and agility Decreased deployment time and risk,Build-your-own, MicroStrategy Analytics, Tableau Server and IBM Cognos,8,3,Yes,I can't think of any time this happened.Birst Delivers as Promised!Apex selected Birst to deliver product specific dashboards for our Industrial Dispensing, Asset Management, Real Time Retail and IT Service Management customers; approximately 10,000 globally. As an IoT company Apex is on the cutting edge of providing our customers with the best BI to assist in product implementation and management. Birst works well for our customer base with fast development and deployment capabilities along with white labeling technologies. In 2018 Apex released Lenz to our Customer base at the National Retail Federation convention in New York City. The release coincided with the release of upgrades to a number of our product lines. Lenz is not serving hundreds of Apex customer delivering insight into actionable data. This is a key differentiator for Apex saving time and money for our Customers.,The ETL processes in Birst are exceptional. Birst builds our meta-data layer for us using Birst's proprietary technology. Birst uses "spaces" to build/test/deliver BI content. This is easy to work with and provides a management process for us to build dashboards based on specific sets of spaces. This reduces our maintenance effort as our IoT database changes. The support for Birst has been fantastic. Not that we have had to use it a great deal, but when we do both the online Birst Community and the contracted support have been spot on with their assistance. Birst white labeling capabilities have provided Apex with a means to name and trademark our BI applications. Birst Mobile has proven to be flexible and fast on iOS and Android platforms allowing Apex to move BI data from the desktop to the palm of the user's hand.,The training has been moved online, but there is a separate fee for each module. As a heavy user of Birst the training should be a part of the package embedding the cost into the annual subscription. Requesting an additional Purchase Order for training is time consuming and raises questions by Management. The Visualizer tool is powerful and, as in any tool, we have a wish list of functional enhancements. The latest release, 5.29 provides significant additions voted up by the use community. If it isn't in Birst now, add it to the community and get it voted up! The initial roll out of Predictive Analytics is a nice conceptual start. Hopefully Birst will grow this area significantly in 2018. The white labeling feature could be enhanced to allow for customer based CSS control. As it is we cannot change page layouts forcing pages to appear less than visionary to our Customer base. Documentation on "how to" functionality has been missing throughout our time with Birst. Occasionally Birst pushes out a document or a Customer writes one posting it to the Community Site. Birst Help is a resource, but it often provides what is obvious and not what is required to implement a complex feature.,8,Speed and agility Ability to meet corporate data standards such as scale and security Decreased deployment time and risk,Sisense, QlikView and Looker,9,100,4,As Birst develops Predictive Analytics Apex intends to utilize this feature for predictive models across our product lines.

Internal use of BI applications in Support, Implementation and Training and Manufacturing to assist customers and monitor internal operations. Provides Sales with an easy to use easy to demo product demonstrating how our products deliver on our promised ROI through easily accessible actionable data.,We have embedded online documentation, with detailed examples, into our dashboards using Birst's mulit-lingual capabilities. Birst Mobile was easy to implement and did not require the purchase of an MDM for release. Dashboards build in our Lenz (Birst) applications are used for video display boards on our demonstration hardware.,Salesforce.com, JIRA Software, Talend Open Studio,Yes,Price Product Features Product Usability Analyst Reports,The process was multi-layered and included various user groups within our corporate organization. We challenged vendors to provide detailed answers/examples on our RFI followed by deep dive demos and trial periods. I don't know that we would change much about the process other than add in new requirements as the BI world has changed a great deal in the past twenty-four months.,9,Yes,This is sort of cheating from an earlier question, but when we were new on Birst, configuring one of our first appliances, we ran into an issue that stopped us dead in our tracks. We tried everything we could think of and finally resorted to contacting Birst Support. I don't know if the Rep felt sorry for us or not, but after a few questions and a look at our appliance he explained what we needed to do to resolve the issue. Again, being new, we must have sounded a bit lost, so he hung in there with use for two hours so we could get the appliance live for the next day. I was impressed with the knowledge level and the customer service shown to us by Birst that evening. 90% of the time I'd say the same about Birst Support. Better than support I've received from dozens of other software companies.,Creation of colorful interactive Dashboards that engage the user while presenting a simple story of complex data subjects. Use of the Visualize report builder is easy to learn and implement. It provides an excellent feature set for our requirements. The build of Birst Mobile apps is very straight forward. We were able to complete a PoC in under two weeks. Birst provides Mobile app management eliminating our need to manage an MDM.,Some might find the use of variables to control languages cumbersome if they are not familiar with reporting against Birst. In our case we worked with Birst for a year before implementing languages, so we knew what would be required to complete the process. We would to see more reporting types (charts, graphs, etc.) as Birst should be expanding in this area. If you have used Tableau the visuals in Birst won't be as extensive. Management of spaces, in particular copying spaces, has a few bugs. This makes space management partly automated and partly manual. Significant time must be spent on QA to ensure the new space is fully functional.,YesCloud Analytics the PioneerImplemented Salesforce Solution Accelarator v2.0 for numerous customers,Agility and speed to deploy a datamart or data warehouse very quickly. Drill down and drill through capability from summary to detail level data.

8 out of 10 times I find the answer to a problem before the support team does. Many times I get the wrong answer from them. I don't find that they evaluate problems well before they start working on them. Many times they work from screen prints and logs without ever speaking to me to find out what is going on.

Birst Support has been some of the best I've experienced in thirty years of working in IT. Starting with the Birst Community forum through the Support Team Birst has be very responsive to our needs. On one occasion, as we were first implementing Birst, we got stuck configuring an appliance. This occurred late in the day and when contacting Support we were directed to a representative who worked with us for over two hours. He helped us understand what needed to be done and then stayed with us while we were completing the configuration. Kudos to Birst for having Support Reps who know what they are doing and care about their customers.

There has been a lot of work put into adding features to Birst in the last year, and much of the new stuff is great: new maps, faster charting engine, support for HTML and JavaScript (including D3.js) in dashboards, etc. Unfortunately, documentation is not keeping up and remains very basic, Customer Support is very, very slow, and the Birst forum (the "Community") remains the only place where real-world questions can be answered.

It seems there isn't a sufficient number of Birst users yet to create independent forums and user groups. I look forward to seeing Birst adopted in more organizations, and a large enough user community that grows outside of Birst.

First, Birst is the most responsive support group I have used or honestly managed. They document and respond quickly. Are they perfect? No, but that does not mean they do not actively work with you to address my issues. My biggest challenge is understanding some of the support team's accents. Luckily, they are very patient with me asking them to repeat their response.

When we have an issue that is stopping our business from proceeding, I want answers sooner than later. While Birst does have a published response time for each case level, we always wish it could be quicker. What response improvement could there be with a larger support team?

In response to first question: Blackhole of issues - Birst needs to improve upon closing issues that resolution was dependent upon code fixes or enhancements, perhaps someone to add a comment on all case tickets at least every 60 days.

Escalation - I always have the ability to electronically or via phone escalate a ticket. I also have my Customer Success Manager through whom I can escalate topics.

Our Customer Success Manager does a great job of getting me what I need in a timely manner, and their tech support is friendly and competent. Sometimes when I submit minor issues to tech support, they go unanswered for a while, which is why I'm not giving a perfect 10 (serious issues get answered immediately). I'd take off another point or 2 for this, but our CSM notices when this happens without me having to say anything to him and tracks down the answers for me himself.

I wish this question was split into 2. Customer Service would get an easy 10/10.

As we have become more self sufficient, we normally only have to call support for some weird or big issue. These issues take longer to solve than i'd like. This is because support cannot fix them. So, not completely fair to the support team - who is knowledgeable about what they should be, but at the end of the day we are talking about the company's support of me, not a support agent team!

About Birst

Birst Networked BI is a BI product that promises to enable a single view of data and eliminate data silos. Additionally, decentralized teams and individual users can augment this shared analytic fabric with their own local data, without compromising data governance. This consistency comes from a unified semantic layer, which maintains common definitions and key metrics, no matter where users sit.

Birst achieves Networked BI through a 2-tier architecture that aligns back-end enterprise data with line-of-business or local, edge data. Birst’s Automated Data Refinement extracts data from any source (data stores, applications, warehouses, big data, and unstructured external sources) into a unified semantic layer. The result is a consistent view that enables users with self-service analytics through dashboards, reporting, visual discovery, mobile tools, and predictive analytics. Birst Open Client Interface also offers integration with Tableau, Excel and R.

Birst goes to market in two primary ways:

  • Direct, for enterprises using Birst for analytics on internal data to drive improved business outcomes
  • Embedded, for all size companies who offer data (analytics) products, by embedding and white-labeling Birst capabilities into their products

Birst’s product is packaged in 3 available formats:

  • Platform and per-user fee
  • By Department or Business Unit
  • By end-customer (for embedded scenarios)
