For all the scenarios I have so far worked on or I am currently working on, Dundas BI has proved to be more than adequate and apt to handle all of those. It is a very easy-to-use tool with quick shortcuts enabling you to prepare ad-hoc reports or dashboards in a matter of minutes.

In my experience and regarding the projects that I worked with Dundas BI it suites perfectly well. Connecting to Oracle and SQL Server databases and making data analysis with dashboards, scorecards and reports is very efficient and performant! Even when the size of the data being analysed is quite big, you can benefit from the cache feature that it offers!

Dundas BI is an excellent solution which embeds into any application seamlessly. It handles small to medium data sets with breeze and smooth representations. For any users looking for beautiful dashboards, unlimited filter options and easy to setup, Dundas BI is a perfect match.
For Large data sets, though the solution goes for a toss sometimes, it can be handled well with default filters.

Considering it's price point in the market, Dundas BI offers a lot of functionality. They are constantly adding features and bug fixes which is great, but also means there are always updates to take if you want everything to work as expected. The standard user interface is pretty easy to understand, but it takes a while for developers and power users to become independent of documentation.

I have as yet come across something that it is not well suited for. I also did not find it that hard to learn how to use. They have two good way to get help if you get stuck on something a user forum and support staff that will help you get done what you are trying to do.

I do think that Dundas BI is well suited for many applications and companies that are looking for a robust BI tool. Dundas BI has much in the way of customizing the user interface as well as the reporting both internally and externally. It needs to be more robust in the way it connects with other products out there, though, and since we were using a lot of external vendor's software we needed to switch to a more versatile BI tool.

If you have the need for multi-tenancy and the need to make very flexible reports then this is good. if you are only using it for personal BI reporting, then it is a bit overkill. I also have to mention that although it is easy to pick up, it has quite a steep learning curve to master

Dundas is perfect for creating visual dashboards to distribute throughout the organisation either by link/website or by standardized PDF reports or Excel reports sent by email. It's also very easy to manage user rights and authentication levels in the reports.

Dundas is less suitable for creating dashboards for people who want to do a lot of ad-hoc querying of large data sets of information.

Dundas BI is a great platform for those that are invested in a long-term BI solution. It's very powerful and flexible at a reasonable price. It's also a great fit for organizations with multiple data sources. Anyone looking for a small tool for quick analysis will see limited benefit from a platform like Dundas.

Dundas BI excels at aggregating granular data across different time hierarchies (Hour > Day > Month > Etc.) and custom data element (Person A > Group X > Division Z > Company ACME) hierarchies. The only place we have found that Dundas BI struggles is with data that is frequently updating in real time (i.e. telemetry that updates ever 1-2 seconds). But for displaying historical and even semi-real time (updated every 30 seconds) it is a great tool with low barriers to entry from a financial perspective and a learning curve perspective.

Dundas BI does great when you need to visualize lots of data. The ability to add filters, charts, tables makes displaying data easy. By using layers, you can create as many pages as you need, with the interactions to flip between those layers without writing any code.

I think where we may not need to use Dundas BI is when someone requests a data dump or Excel style report or just a table filled with data without the need for visuals. While Dundas BI can handle this with no issues, sometimes it's easier to send an Excel sheet as a one off data dump and turn it into a dashboard if that data is needed more often.

Dundas BI is suitable in cases where you are looking for the best dashboard designs and look and feel. You can build Dundas BI as an internal website that is the same as the other process assets inside the organization like Sharepoint or the organization's website colors and designs.

Dundas BI is less appropriate if you want to use the tool as pure data analysis tool specially for non IT people.

Dundas BI is a tool that every business should have. Having the ability to quickly and easily visualize data is something that was mostly a dream a few years ago. Today Dundas BI has made it a reality. As long as you know the data you need, you can quickly bring it from boring numbers to pretty colors, charts, and gauges that even top level executives can understand.

We are basically a Microsoft SQL shop, and Dundas BI has been an excellent fit for our environment. Also, anyone just starting out with mapping will find it easy to use the map visualizations, right out of the box. It is easy to add multiple data series to a single map and produce sophisticated results. This has been a tremendous value add for our users.

Dundas BI (DBI) is well suited for quick ad hoc analysis - but that depends on the nature of the ad hoc analysis - not as simple as a pivot table but could see using DBI more for guided analysis and dashboards where users want the ability to filter and slice data but with views that are predefined.

Dundas BI is a multi-functional tool and is well positioned to be used in virtually any scenario. It can be thought of as a painters' blank canvas. Each user has the flexibility to paint their own painting to get their story across.
