What is GoodData?

GoodData powers modern BI for the modern data stack. It is a business intelligence platform that provides the creation, delivery, and automated management of analytics at any scale. GoodData experts help businesses build data strategies, create new products, and maximize their data ROI.

At a high level, GoodData’s composable data and analytics platform provides self-service analytics, low-code/no-code interfaces, embeddable data visualization, and application integration. The platform also provides an end-to-end pipeline, including data ingestion, preparation, and transformations. GoodData’s composable architecture allows businesses to integrate with existing infrastructure and implement analytics solutions for employees, customers, or business partners.

The headless BI engine is a key part of GoodData’s analytics platform: It is built to scale with containerized microservices, managed as a code, and separates the analytical backend from the consumption layer. The user can connect any application, data platform, or visualization tool to the engine's semantic layer — via APIs and standard interfaces — and consume the same consistent analytics in real time, anywhere.

The vendor describes the platform as:

  • Powerful and easy to use analytics for any skill level, including business users without technical experience

  • Flexible in pricing options for companies of all sizes

  • A modularized solution designed for developers in mind

  • Robust and flexible in data integration options

  • Built for enterprise environments thanks to enterprise-grade security and governance

We use GoodData via our project management platform[,] Mavenlink. It's integrated into the platform and serves our project reporting needs.
[GoodData] handles all project management reporting.
  • [GoodData] has good documentation with plenty of native and user-created examples
  • This may be due to how GoodData is integrated into Mavenlink (our PM tool) but data is only refreshed every half hour, so pulling data in real-time is not possible.
GoodData is not a replacement for a more robust reporting engine like SQL[.]
GoodData is intuitive and easy to learn but could be more robust.
We use GoodData through a project management tool (Mavenlink). As such, the information schema and interface through which we interact with GoodData is built and administered by Mavenlink, and the support we receive to build reports is through Mavenlink. That said, the online documentation available for GoodData for setup, creating custom metrics and dashboards has all been sufficient and generally helpful.

GoodData was implemented within our organization to be able to measure what type of questions and requests our customers had and in which ways we could implement changes and improvements on our product and processes to guarantee customer satisfaction and drive up conversion rates. Additionally, we found new ways to use GoodData to balance our staffing and recognize variables in our rush hours and times of greater occupancy based on customer incoming flow.
GoodData addresses all sorts of issues for our business. We implemented it as a way to report on agent quality and process churn. We also used it to measure the need for changes to our processes and products in order to improve customer satisfaction but also drive up conversion rates and capitalize on revenue. It allowed us to exploit new revenue streams at the same time we optimized revenue opportunities for different markets based on price flexibility and demand studies.
  • Reporting on consumer trends and satisfaction.
  • Data analysis on process implementation and acceptance.
  • Measurable reports on products' price flexibility and areas of opportunity.
  • Availability of tutorials on how to create and configure data and reports.
  • Ease of understanding the meaning of each metric.
  • Frequency of report updates.
We loved the ease of implementing GoodData to measure quantitative aspects of our operation which allowed us to better plan our staffing without sacrificing support experience. Even if it was hard to achieve the best results when it came to qualitative data which needed some extra analysis or different input on our end.
While it takes some time to get used to the way in which reporting is created, once you are set up it is not hard to scale on your reporting. It may be hard to regain momentum if new reports are not created regularly. However, the existing reporting is comprehensive enough.
The fast and comprehensive responses we got from GoodData regarding the doubts we had experienced while starting to use the products and metrics were of great help in ensuring the metrics we were obtaining were accurate to what we wanted to know about our customers' experience and our product areas of opportunity.

We are using GoodData as a visualization and analytics tool to allow our clients to gather valuable information across a number of disparate data sources.
  • Provides easy linking of disparate data sources that typically would be very difficult to analyze in any meaningful way.
  • Ease of design. You don't have to have extensive knowledge of the product to be able to design attractive and powerful reports, dashboards, etc.
  • Easy to integrate into custom applications. Whether it be i-framing or white label, GoodData provides an easy solution for integrating dashboards into your applications.
  • Limited customization options for report/dashboards design. You are kind of locked in to their chart color options, placement of certain element (i.e. chart legend), etc.
  • No intuitive way to handle fiscal year calendars. A custom solution needs to be built in order to handle variable fiscal calendars.
  • Learning MAQL programming language is necessary to be able to use the product meaningfully.
GoodData is appropriate for any organizations struggling with bridging gaps between multiple disparate data sources. Using GoodData provides those organizations all the tools necessary to build value added insights for both internal and external customers. It would be less appropriate for those wanting to build highly customizable reports features as there's not a lot of freedom in design.
Initially we had limited resources and time to put toward implementing GoodData into our existing systems. By enlisting their professional services team and associated support staff, we were able to get up in running in much less time. There was never an issue getting an experienced support agent involved whenever we were experiencing issues.

Business intelligence is recently being used in my country and Gooddata is an excellent digital tool that allows you to discover trends and new business opportunities thanks to its ease of use, and options that allow you to upload data manually and automatically. Dashboards and Insights are easy to create and can be exported to various formats. The ease of running in the cloud gives it extra value.
Identification of trends that allow timely corrections to be made in business management and also discover new business opportunities. All this is based on the historical information of the company.
  • fast implementation
  • manual and automatic data loading
  • easy creation of insights and dashboards
  • Spanish version
  • Representation and technical support in Latin America
  • More automatic loading options from various ERP's
For me, the appropriate scenario is one in which there is a lot of historical information in my case of sales and costs. Likewise, the option of uploading information in CSV format has been very useful to me, without the need for intervention from an IT area. The scenario that I have not explored yet is when the data is in an unconventional ERP, in these cases connectors would need to be developed.
Its easy implementation since it is in the cloud and its easy use in data loading and dashboard generation, another detail is the option of automatic loading from cloud computing systems such as Amazon and Azure. Another detail is the variety of profiles that users can have and the various plans.

GoodData is an Embedded Business Intelligence (BI) platform that helps us POC report before it is built into the standard product package. Reports that do not justify being productized can be delivered as a value-added service for our customers. This allows us to cater to both the low and high end of the market with different levels of customization.
It is a cost-effective and easy-to-scale solution to provide embedded business intelligence. After evaluating around 20 over products, this is probably the one that has the gentle curve on scaling and initial startup cost. It is also fairly user-friendly except for the initial setup but the support quickly sorts it out after a couple of emails. Pricing wise there are some additional expenses for some modules that were not presented upfront but even with those taken into consideration, it is still the best in the cost.
  • scaling
  • user friendly
  • feature rich
  • initial setup
  • cost transparency
  • ease to signup
The embedded solution needs to scale at a reasonable price with a minimal upfront fee. End users are mainly non-technical inclined but must have at least 1 other person familiar with SQL to set up the model. For more advanced usage, having some form of ELT pipeline may be necessary. The simplest use case could be just taking a CSV, which is what we did for simple visualization needs. The multi-tenant model allows us to segment out different spaces for different purposes or clients.
The feature could be comprehensive but it is so user-friendly, there is hardly any fault to find with them.

We use GoodData to process data into visual reports. We then embed those reports on websites for clients to view.
BI by processing and scheduling the update process of new data. It also solves our need to display analytics to stakeholders
  • Great customer service
  • Knowledgable help desk resources to help with any step of the GoodData process
  • Intuitive dashboards
  • Custom formulas could use some work. I feel it is restrictive and not straightforward for a more technical user. I would like there to be a large library of methods that allow you to manipulate the data. Methods like slicing or finding the substring or index of a string. Also methods for other data types for numbers and so forth.
  • Increase the number of data log formats you accept as input into your platform. They currently provide CSV format for data logs but they don't have options for JSON, W3C Extended log format, and others. If they make the process to import data very easy then it will save customers from needing to convert it to CSV themselves.
For basic data that is already in structured DB like SQL or structured CSV log that needs not much further formulas to process the data then GoodData is a home run. For different data log formats that need further processing of the data into more fields of data, that will be more of a challenge than an easy integration.
It was intuitive to use. Kudos to GoodData.

We use GoodData as an embedded analytics solution to allow our customers to analyze and dissect the data produced by our product.
Customers are constantly seeking custom reports for specific use cases. GoodData puts the power in the customer's hands and allows them to define what they want to display and empowers my organization to provide flexible guardrails.
  • Customer Support
  • Onboarding
  • Embedded Analytics
  • They are in the process of transitioning from older documentation in their knowledge base which can be confusing when using the new user interface and messaging doesn't completely align with what you see.
  • More flexibility around feature enablement
From the initial pitch to implementation to ongoing support, GoodData has been a customer-first organization that provided assistance when needed and allowed exploration when desired. The product itself is intuitive enough for first-timers and powerful enough for power users all packaged in a clean modern user interface.
The user interface is incredibly intuitive and without much technical knowledge, I was able to get a proof of concept up and running simply using a CSV of data. This made the internal approval process very easy.

we used to be a reseller of GoodData. Additionally, we used the platform for both internal and customer-facing analytics focused on data consumption of their GoodData product. personally speaking, GoodData was smooth and did not represent a steep learning curve for new adopters (if compared to other products on the market).
GoodData focuses on the visualization of data from any kind of resource (Google Analytics, data warehouse, CRM, etc.). When presenting GoodData to the regular audience, who did not know it yet, I used an example of MS Excel and its Graph feature. Well, GoodData is much more effective and allows for many more resources to be plugged in.
  • Connecting the data inputs
  • Building data model
  • Easy way to design the dashboards and graphs
  • Sharing the dashboards
  • Support on the SQL command line they have built-in
  • Pricing policy
Whenever you have a simple data model and need to publish dashboards/data visualizations fast, GoodData is a great tool. Also when more people need to be involved, especially the business users with less competence in data science, GoodData is easy to learn working with. The only downsides I found, were related to a weird pricing policy and policy on automated upgrades to a faster backend, that is happening out of the blue without the customer's ability to influence or anticipate that. however, this may have already been fixed (my experience on that is from early 2021
as already stated in previous answers...GoodData simply works and provides a simple platform to learn to work with. in m perspective it is easier to learn working on GoodData rather than competitive products, such as Looker, Tableau, etc. It is easy to even for business users to prepare a quick ad-hoc analysis and dashboards without any previous knowledge, which I recognize as an important feature

I used GoodData to build an interactive view on a public dataset with my brand colors and some customization. This allowed me to guide viewers on what the data highlights. So they can focus on the geographic display of each category and select the categories they care about the most.
Give a qualitative visualization to data that refers to the quantity of categories.
  • Easy to use
  • Interactive
  • Fast to display
  • It doesn’t allow view without login while it should
  • It can limit comparative analysis
  • I wished it dealt with Big Data from start
It’s perfect to show data to existing users by embedding visualizations on your website. It can this way instruct your community about things they all need to share to interact better empowered by knowledge from data. And it can serve for building a user base on data visualizations. Just not a fit for data visualizations that are ideal without a login.
GoodData requires some reading and getting the data on your own website comes with limitations. But once the visualization is embedded and if viewers are ok to create a login, the visualization is easy to play with and looks great. It’s an alternative to Tableau as it works with different dashboards and architecture.

Good data can meet most user needs but Maps and particularly Map Box type integration is a huge question mark. I am also wondering how much can I customize the design for metrics etc. to blend more with the front-end without the need for a developer and API calls. Good Data may be an unbeatable leader in providing scrollable dashboards. The best thing is unlike Tableau Desktop, this is all quick and in the cloud.

We are implementing GoodData in our clients as an upsell. By this moment, we are still building their dashboard in PowerBI, but it takes us too much time, so we are changing to GoodData, and leaving them building their own metrics, saving us the time of building dashboards. And one more important feature is the white labeling, so they will use, it as if they were using Rabbot, and not a third service.
First, and the most important, the White labeling BI, and the flexibility and liberty to our customers.
  • Whitelabeling
  • Analytics
  • Easy to embed
  • Data transform directly in the platform
  • Some functions are a little hard to perform, if you don't know how to do them
  • We miss also a filter in the Data modeling
Some clients enjoyed so much what we showed, they liked the flexibility and the fact that they can edit reports and dashboards, and create metrics directly in the embedded, but every time they need some new data, that is not in the Data model, we have to do a transform in out back-end to make this information available for them. And, of course, we also miss an ETL tool directly in GoodData.
GoodData is an incredible tool when you know how to use it. But it took me some time, to discover the features, and to rule them. In the beginning, when you don't know how to work with it, you struggle a little, but when you master it, it's so easy and also fun to work with it.

We use GoodData to build reporting dashboards that are integrated into our own product. Our SaaS product serves many customers, and the GoodData dashboards are stylized such that they fit seamlessly into our product -- our users do not know they are using GoodData. We appreciate this while label aspect.
Good Data allowed us to deploy a reporting platform with some significant initial investment, but very little need for ongoing maintenance and continued investment from our internal engineering team. We are now able to add additional reporting features quickly without engaging our internal team at all.
  • Visual cohesion with our product.
  • Deployment of multiple customers.
  • Customer support and services.
  • Training on how to build on top of the platform without using their team.
  • Pricing and speed for initial rollout.
  • Better geographic charts.
Good Data is well suited for companies that are looking to build a reporting platform into their products and relieve the load on their internal development team to do so. It can be deployed with a variety of customization levels. I would not necessarily suggest Good Data for internal reporting as a business intelligence platform. [I feel like] it shines most as a white-labeled product.
The dashboards that are built for end-users are incredibly useful. I would rate those a 10. However, the training on how to use and develop on the platform is middle-of-the-road. We've found that our team is not always prepared to build on the platform and we have to engage GoodData staff, and pay for hours, for them to do it for us.

Embedded Business Intelligence (BI) is the integration of self-service Business Intelligence (BI) Tools into normally used business applications. GoodData is one of the names which comes to mind from Embedded Business Intelligence (BI) Tools. GoodData provides growth through analytics. As a user of GoodData, I feel that GoodData is user-friendly and in sync with a lot of industry-standard data analysis and reporting tools.
GoodData has some of the best reporting tools available in the market today. I personally feel that GoodData has been a catalyst in advancing the global standard for intelligence at work through robust dashboards, custom insights, and unmatched governance options. It has proven to be a helpful and useful platform.
  • It's a good platform that has a flexible pricing plan which means that users can get hands-on service free at the start.
  • GoodData provides its users with excellent charts and drill-down analysis which makes complex large data sets so simplified and easy to understand and interpret.
  • For me it is so convenient because everything just gets saturated on a single page.
  • Whilst GoodData is positive, it is also negative as I have found some limitations associated with GoodData as well. With experience in using the software of GoodData, I feel like there is a fluctuation in availability to maintain the code of the dashboards and workspaces.
  • GoodData just has limited ways to securely transfer information between our systems and our client's systems.
In my opinion, GoodData is a useful software where you have a larger data set that is required to be analyzed. Businesses that do not have a larger data set to be analyzed can use the MS Excel tool which will be good enough to analyze the data. In short, GoodData is more suitable and appropriate for larger data sets.
GoodData is a platform that keeps smart and well-developed features and functions. It is a completely easy-to-use tool. Also, a great aspect of GoodData is that unlike the basic MS Excel, the software has an in depth insight to visit summary. All the trend visits and page views are summarized in a lucid and comprehensive manner.

We use GoodData for data analysis and data mining purposes. We have a host of customer tickets that come into Zendesk and GoodData makes it easier for us to process and analyze the data. We also have several dashboard and insights setup enabling team to get a quick glimpse of the health of the system, what items need immediate attention, which customer is reaching a tipping point/escalation, etc. GoodData ability to automatically mail data/reports makes it easier for the team to consume the same.

Ability to analyze data and draw meaningful conclusions help us understand the pattern of support requests that are coming in. These data points also help understand what the customer's exact pain-points are and areas of our application which is contributing to these problems. With this we are able take steps to reduce incoming support tickets volumes thereby freeing up resource need/dependency.
  • Data consolidation
  • Data Analytics
  • Customisable dashboards
  • None
  • None
  • None
GoodData is useful where you have a large data set that needs to be analyzed. In the event where your data points are minimal in nature, a regular Excel based tool is good enough to analyze the data.
GoodData is super friendly and inline with lot of industry standard data analysis and reporting tools. I have used Salesforce, Power Bi, etc. and can confidently say that the GoodData's reporting/analysis engine is in-par with some of the best reporting tools available in the market today. Dashboard and auto-notifications have been top notch and you have first hand information of how the systems, teams and customer health is at any given point in time.

GoodData provides an analytics engine that supports B2B implementation and white labeling. Their comprehensive API design allows for greater control over the user experience compared to most market offerings, enabling a near seamless transition between their software and another. Most recently, they've released a new set of products that allows even greater control over how a customer can use their engine in combination with 3rd party data warehousing platforms. GoodData provided us the analytics piece that could be tied into our software without it being a disruptive experience for the end user.
Gives us the ability to take data from an operational source and optimizes performance of of processing it for analytical and reporting purposes.
  • Ability to embed and white-label.
  • Simplified experience for non-technical users.
  • Fantastic Implementation team.
  • This is not a platform for data scientists.
  • Poor ability to maintain code versioning of their workspaces and dashboards.
  • Limited ways to securely transfer information between your system and theirs.
This platform is fantastic for underserved groups at larger corporations or if you have limited resources and staff to work with data migration and management. Like any analytics platform, this is not going to help you if your company suffers from a lack of data literacy.

The user experience of their default portal (if you choose not to embed via APIs) is excellent for non-technical users to create visualizations, KPIs and data storyboards.
Their documentation, training, and support resources are excellent.
Their product is designed to be simplified to manage and use.
They have and excellent set of features that covers all the most common asks/needs of someone who wishes to create and share visualizations and KPIs.

They are NOT great for super complicated data science things or to replace statisticians; if you are trying to do anything with K-nearest neighbors or use a Naive Bayes classifier you are going to have a bad time. If, on the other hand, you just want to show a visual related to the ratio of number of times people were injured severely to number of minor injuries for a user defined time period, this is a great platform.

GoodData helps us save time and manpower in creating easy to use and navigate reports and get them to the right audience member within our company. GoodData enables us to splice up data in the ways we need to, from specific time entries to grouping projects by custom fields. By using gooddata to create tables and graph views, we can create easy to use and navigate dashboards.
  • Easy to customize and create metrics using MAQL
  • Easy to filter reports
  • Limited flexibility and options while creating reports.
  • Tough to customize views and designs.
I would recommend GoodData to people with limited experience in BI. This is a great introduction to this field and the learning curve might not be as steep as other tools.
GoodData is fairly easy to use but there are some limitations on customizations on reports. On simple/basic reports, GoodData is perfect for generating tables and reports and can splice up the data you want to see. On more complex reports, it becomes a bit more difficult and is a bit hard to navigate if you have too many attributes.

GoodData is being used by specific parts of our organization because of the large size and high number of employees and departments. GoodData helps resolve a large number of issues. We use Good Data to manage the metrics that drive our business. Good Data provides a great way to manage this. You can see all of the important metrics from one clean dashboard.
  • Excellent charts and drill down analysis. Everything on one page.
  • Excellent integration with other databases and software.
  • Great support and mobile app availability. All these features makes this software very useful.
  • To make any adjustments to the data flowing into the tool you need expert help.
  • The tool is pricy. Just like other BI tools, this tool also proves expensive.
  • It is difficult to use. It requires extensive training and support.
The tool is very user friendly most of the times. GoodData will literally grab any data point you want. You can cross reference data and create all desired reports. It is very well suited in such situations. The only time there are issues are when there is a huge amount of data flowing through other databases (from Big Data). At this stage the tool gets slow and is not able to process everything.

Our organization is primarily a computer software firm which provides speech and imaging applications in the industry of healthcare and developing speech recognition applications. The products are targeted for various categories of customers like giant healthcare research hospitals, mobile and application development firms which need platforms like Siri. To get an accurate insight on business operations and performance in a timely manner andd to monetize the data coming from different vendors, we use GoodData. Updated and pertinent role and client based information is available across the firm on a daily basis. The visualizations and dashboards give us a great insights regarding the same.
  • The platform provides a very robust data infrastructure and business intelligence tools to support the data engineers and analysts. It also has a very capable and user friendly visualization/reporting interface for the end user.
  • It is an excellent analytics platform for beginners as well. The resources available online are in good number and learning guides are easy to understand.
  • Single-Sign-in functionality of GoodData allows integration with other enterprise platforms very easily.
  • GoodData also provides excellent implementation consulting services and post-implementation customer service.
  • I would like to have tools for automated project backups and restores, user provisioning. Presently this can be achieved through API's, but would prefer to have a specific and dedicated GoodData tool for this.
  • The pricing might not be very attractive if you happen to be a small scale business and plan to venture out in the area of Data Monetization.
  • The process of making reports and conducting inquiries is difficult. It requires to write a little bit of code. So if you are not using ETL (Extract Transform Load), then probably you don't need such a technical product.
GoodData can easily integrate with cloud-based data sources such as Salesforce.com, Adobe Marketing Cloud, Magento, and various other CRM or analytics platforms. It also integrates with databases, protocols, and structured and unstructured data sources.
So a friend of mine is gonna be likely using these data sources so Gooddata platform seems a good option to integrate analytics services and reporting tools.

We used GoodData to distribute reports, a dashboard and insights across whole organisation. It's well prepared for self-service and explanatory BI, features which people sadly almost never use by themselves.
  • It's in a cloud and perfectly works in your browser. It has the usability you would expect.
  • It's simple to learn and amazingly fast for everyday work. You can train power users very quickly.
  • Logic.
  • Embeding just works.
  • Price and speed for bigger data sets.
  • It's not above your database, you have to load data there.
If you need to do things fast, like start a BI department in days, maybe weeks, GoodData is awesome - especially if you want to analyze sales data. If you need to build a reporting solution with hundreds of GBs and analyzing transactional data, GoodData is not the best tool.

We resell GoodData as the analytics component of our SAAS product. Our product services an industry vertical and as such it needs robust analytics highly specific to the use case to be embedded within it. This analytic capability needs to be highly configurable as well.
  • Highly visual dashboards
  • Very straightforward for users to comprehend and use
  • Easy to make changes to reports and dashboards
  • Real time analytics are not yet possible
  • Managing a large number of client projects as an OEM requires some manual work arounds
  • Some admin capabilities such as advanced user data filtering lack UI tools and have to be administered in JSON commands or similar obscure mechanisms
GoodData is perfectly suited for embedding in a web app or website, particularly if real time analytics are not needed.

GoodData is used as a BI platform that covers reporting needs across all functions of the company. It combines data from various silo systems used by the company to provide a single point of truth. The intuitive user interface allowed us to implement the self-serve reporting to a large number of users, who can access the data they need without IT support.
  • Intuitive report and dashboard building tools allow users to customise their day-to-day interaction with the data.
  • Some of the standard data warehouse (DW) design patterns are implemented and come out of the box.
  • GoodData takes care of speed optimisation.
  • Customer support is very responsive and accessible.
  • It is not the best solution for the printable reports.
  • Formatting of the output is limited and some classic visualisations are not available.
  • It is a pure BI tool, there is nothing to support predictive analytics or forecasting.
  • Data is not easily available, so we have to have an intermediate staging data warehouse. This literally doubles number of required ETL processes.
It is great for classic BI reporting, especially on processes where volumes of data are not big.

We used GoodData as a part of our Zendesk help desk SaaS solution for more advanced analytics of our support tickets. Zendesk and GoodData were only used by our support department/team.
  • Good mechanisms for relating data.
  • Multiple different chart types.
  • Scheduled dashboard email exports for other recipients.
  • Dynamic/self-updating charts embed would be useful.
  • Public access URL to dashboards for sharing.
In our experience, GoodData was very well suited to provide more advanced analysis of Zendesk ticket data compared to Zendesk' built-in Insights feature.

GoodData is used as the primary business intelligence platform in our company. All of our data pipelines feed into GoodData to provide a universal source of truth for all employees of our company and enable them to easily analyze our data themselves.
  • Intuitive ETL
  • Easy and powerful visualizations
  • Powerful Query Language (MAQL)
  • ETL client can be quirky at times
  • Performance is heavily impacted by bigger datasets (100M rows total project size)
  • Combining data based on different date timelines is challenging
GoodData is very powerful, but for larger data volumes (> 100M total rows) I would suggest going with a different product.

GoodData was implemented to house all of our data from the various silos we currently have, identify areas we can improve our data entry, and to assist with developing strategic goals.
  • Great customer service
  • Very agile framework that allows us to push the boundaries of what we want vs. need
  • Very open to new suggestions from current users
  • Need to think like a marketer when developing a platform so it's responsive and mobile friendly.
  • It would be nice to have a closer relationship with understanding how all of the updates could impact me. Basically, when a new feature is rolled out, I watch the webinars, however, it's still at such a high level, I'm not sure how the new feature could be used for my circumstances. And since the team knows how the new features work and what my goals are, they have a much stronger understanding of how I could leverage the new features.
They move at a very fast pace, and companies new to the world of "BI" will have a more difficult time with adoption, no matter how much they want to use data analytics to improve the company.

We have GoodData integrated to analyze our data within Salesforce. By using the powerful capabilities within the tool, we can create our own customized dashboard that shows a high level of our sales performance by individual, office, region and department. We can all see one single version of the truth and see progress towards goals. In addition, we can segment the data to see how we are competing against competitors, which industries we perform in best, and evaluate marketing efforts.
  • Aggregation of information across multiple tables to quickly retrieve large data sets
  • Customizable visuals to easily display and interpret metrics
  • Great support team that quickly answers questions and provides guidance
  • GoodData's architecture is very sound. We do need to work with them to make adjustments to the data model that we are not able to do ourselves. They are quick to respond but sometimes provide a delayed turnaround.
I would definitely recommend GoodData when integrating with Salesforce. You can also upload your own flat file. We haven't used this beyond that capability.
