We have tested Tableau prior to Dundas BI and though Tableau is a great package in itself, Dundas BI is much more cost-effective for our needs and requirements and hence zeroed in on Dundas BI.

We have also tried microstrategy but it has a very dated UI and doesn't suit our needs in today's more modern world.

We choose Dundas mainly because:
- Dashboard flexibility
- Data preparation features
- Overall cost
- Support model and vendor impression

The ETL for DBI is much more easy than what I experienced when I used QlikView! The QlikView language for ETL was somehow different from anyother languages I used before, on the other side DBI ETL is workflow based, with nodes to perform joins, aggregations, filter and sorting! You may also used plain SQL to query your data!

Dundas ticks all the relevant boxes:
- set up actually easy and works (was not the case for Pentaho)
- you do not need one license per email address you want to send reports to (as for Tableau)
- easy to use (vs. Jaspersoft)
- cross-platform (not so for Tableau)
- Dundas can pull data, you do not have to only push (as is the case for Zoho)

Dundas is an easier GUI overall to navigate and is a lot more visually configurable. The number of data connectors available also allows us to use it as a solution for many projects. The support provided is quick and prompt, with great technical depth when required.

We found that Dundas BI struck the perfect balance between ease of use and flexibility, while still remaining within a reasonable budget. Other products were either to technical, lacked functionality, or "broke the bank".

Per dollar spent, it offers the widest range of features of the tools that we evaluated. It offers lots of options for how to configure your environment, though they are not always intuitive to figure out. Having an ETL layer was a must have for us, as well as the ability to host to secure HIPAA compliance. It is not a replacement for ad hoc reporting, but does a great job of creating parameterized reports and dashboards that look great.

Much better for multi-tenancy. Power bi just doesn't have many features and is just lackluster. Telerik doesn't look as good although slightly more powerful with data manipulation. Too many BI reporting tools out there don't offer multi-tenancy and I have no idea why. It is pretty important. Dundas is just the best if multitenancy is needed

We were comparing Dundas BI against several other programs and eventually decided to go with Oracle as we were already using a host of their other products. Dundas was just as robust, we were just using more Oracle products and they all fit together very smoothly.

Personally as a dashboard software I use Qlik Sense more because I consider it a very simple product to use, but this is a personal choice. However, for some things, it does not satisfy me fully. In my opinion, they are software that are alternated depending on the customer in front of you.

I have used dozens of BI tools, a ew for many years like IBM Cognos and other for several months POCs like microstrategy, Panorama, Tableau etc...

For our industry and our daily use Dundas BI wins since it is very flexible and can bring us the greater value we can achieve from a BI tool.

It is a very good tool for dashboard and scorecard design. It looks great. However, it requires a lot of work regarding renaming components, deploying between different environments, and scripting customized functionalities.

These other products tend to do quite a poor job of allowing you to embed them into other products. Either the architecture is not suited to embedding or they make it too expensive to do this. Dundas is designed and priced to do this (embedding) well. We found Dundas comparatively easier to use.

Dundas and Sisense are very similar. Both are very powerful and flexible with an eye toward further innovation. I expect both will do well as we enter a major transition period for BI.

Periscope Data and Dundas differ substantially and seem to have different paths forward. Periscope is very focused on fast performance and requires SQL to build reports. Dundas is focused on flexibility and strong visualization.

Looker is another tool that is similar to Dundas. Looker comes in at a higher price point and seems focused on embedded dashboards and in-app analytics (although both platforms provide this).

Dundas BI offers a high level of visual customization in the dashboards if required (through CSS, JavaScript, HTML) as well data customization (C#) in the data cubes. We are an organization that believes in doing as much as possible for ourselves and not replying on contractors. We already have an available pool of talent in the above mentioned technologies so we knew we would be able to get a lot done no matter what we wanted to do without having to hire consultants. Most of the other products we evaluated were not as straightforward in their customization or did not offer all of the customization options that Dundas BI does.

We were a user of Dundas Dashboard previously. We had explored other tools, but we ended up upgrading to Dundas BI because of the HTML 5 compliance (no more Silverlight requirement), ease of use and time to market. The other tools could do the job, but they were not as flexible as Dundas BI. We needed something that could not only perform well as a dashboard tool, but also serve as the primary navigation for some of our apps.

I selected Dundas BI to be our preferred partner since we saw that it the most flexible tool that allows our customers to design their dashboards in they way that they are not restricted in their development process.

It is much more powerful to build more interactive and feature rich dashboards. Most of the above are great at ad hoc analysis but not for providing a full feature and rich guided dashboard experience. Dundas BI is great to build a suite of dashboards and easy to deploy (browser). It is thereafter a low maintenance solution and just works. You can also use it as a "dashboard development framework" and build whatever you need / want.
