TrustRadius Meets Our Needs and Has Awesome Salesforce IntegrationWe 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.,9,,9,We have over 2000 users, including our president who receives the reports produced from GoodData on a regular basis.,10,10Good Data = Good DealGoodData puts powerful data visualization into the hands of business users, eliminating IT from the equation. GoodData required only a brief intro to its basic philosophy, and nontechnical users were quickly able to start building dashboards and views they could actually use. GoodData enabled powerful graphics to be constructed combining enterprise data and external data such as research or industry data, easily imported and homologated to create comparisons.,As with many information tools, GoodData can be challenging to a novice user who is too rushed to learn while building.,10,,9,GoodData is most popular among "data hound" category of business user. Anyone who is capable of running and refining large Excel pivots, and who can extract SQL statement results into Excel, is easily able to build beautiful analytics and visualizations in GoodData. Some less proactive GD users are merely consuming the analytics views created by their colleagues.,In one customer demo, we used online banking data (yes, for real) and observed as GoodData created different dashboards for different people depending on what it found in the downloaded data. It was very cool. Download 1 full year of online banking transactions into CSV, then create new project using this as base data. Where debit categories were clearly showing a pattern, the dashboard put this item first and showed a pretty useful pattern. where people had variable income and from various sources, it showed that first and created great interest in seasonal variances by source.,,Implemented in-house,9,In-person training Self-taught,9,It makes you feel smart. You try to build an ambitious metric or graph, and by guessing and using intuition, suddenly you've got it!,9GoodData is Ok dataWe used GoodData as an additional reporting tool for our marketing automation software and our CRM (SFDC). We used it within our Marketing department only. The tool was able to help up bridge data between SFDC and our MAS tools. We reported on ROI, marketing engagement, contact trends, campaign performance and more.,The GoodData dashboards are interactive and easy to customize. Permission settings were straight forward and easy to manage. They weren't fully customizable, but there was enough there to work with for our needs. Scheduling of reports was done well. You were able to set exact times and frequencies for reports to be sent. You also could chose between dashboards or individual reports to send.,Creating reports was not the most intuitive. The set-up is different from most other tools I've used in the past. It took quite a bit of time to really get a report set up the way I like it. If you are used to setting up reports in SFDC, this will be a much different experience. The amount of information you can have in a report was limited. If you tried to add too many columns, it wouldn't let you or you had to condense the size of the column. I didn't feel that I had too much information and would have to make my columns very narrow and export it to Excel and reformat it in order to do my analysis. It was difficult to make some of the reports visually appealing. My supervisor was the type that liked to see reports color coded, high lighted, and bolded. The basic tabular reports were very bland. Again, I would end up exporting to Excel to format my reports before sending them off. It would've been nice to do all of that in the tool and use the scheduling functionality. Pie, bar, and any other visual reports are attractive.,4,7,Our version is not widely adopted because it was meant for the Marketing department. There are about 6 total users that have the ability to create reports. Otherwise, there are about 20 users that receive scheduled reports.,7,6,8GoodData User FeedbackWe use GoodData to analyze the bookings and marketing data to generate ad-hoc reports to answer business/customer questions. We have users in different departments like Finance, Marketing, Sales, Professional Service etc. GoodData provides the BI solution of saving time and energy for regular reports and allows users to analyze the data rather than spending tons of time preparing the data. It also provides visualized dashboards which can present the trend of business performance.,Visualization Training Consulting,Direct load excel file,8,Tableau Desktop,9,150 users,8,8,9GoodData brings data to life and can make BIG DATA small. Quickly, cost effectively, easy to use, and incredibly efficent. I'd Strongly Recommend.Time to Value: GoodData is an excellent product. Having wide exposure to many products companies and solutions within the business intelligence, marketing, and sales technology space I have followed BI and the need for better annalytics closely over the past 7-8. One of the biggest challenges many companies have when acquiring a BI platform is the time it takes to get some value from it. Some can take months if note years to truly get an organization some value from them. GoodData is one of the best BI solutions to enable companies to quickly (within weeks) get direct value from it. They have developed specific solutions for Sales, Marketing and Service that for the vast majorty of companies accomplishes everything they need and then some. Ease of Use: One of the strongest and best things about GoodData is it's ease of use. The UI is great, much easier to get-up-to speed on than other more complex BI platforms and they (the company) is very committed to its customers success. Many companies can learn GoodData by just watching web videos and going through some very brief and basic training. However, GoodData can also come onsite or offers training in a variety of markets and via web for companies where that is more suitable for them. Strong Dashboards: GoodData is very strong in the area of dashboards and visual analytics. I consult with many clients big (Fortune 100) and SMB so the complexities and needs vary widely. However, one thing that stays consistent is data is just data unless you can effectively aggregate the right data sources, gain insight from those sources and be able to use that insight to take action that can positively impact your companies business decisions. The vast majority of people are visual learners and and virtually every executive I've worked with prefers to see things visually before diving into the "numbers" when weighing important business decisions. GoodData really gets it here making it easy for companies to visually show very complex and important data sets while still providing options to show more detailed views and "drill downs" if necessary. "Powered by GoodData": For many companies this is probably one of the most exciting things about GoodData and the options in which they bring their solution to market. For those companies who wish to leverage the power and flexibility of the GoodData technology but would rather "white label" or leverage the technology under their own brand, GoodData allows companies to leverage their technology just as if it was their own. Many ad-agencies, and end users find this incredibly valuable. Metadata Objects/Management (dimensions, report layouts and measurements): As deployments get larger and companies demand more scalability with thei BI platforms this becomes increasingly important. GoodData does a good job of helping their customers scale and adress some of these issues as you look accross departments and differentiating data sets. High Standards of Up-Time: GoodData guarantees 99.5% uptime in the SLA's and I am yet to run into or talk to a customer that has had a challenge in this area. The company and it's engineers seem very committed to this aspect of their business and it seems to show with the clients I speak to in terms of satisfaction. GoodData Support: GoodData has a very robust support portal and best practice resources for it's clients. Price: When comparing the cost of GoodData to other solutions in the market like IBM-Cognos, Tableau or Oracle BI it is less expensive to deploy and get up and running. Cost is one of the driving factors I use when evaluating BI solutions on behalf of my clients and that is also one of the biggest factors companeis use when doing the evaluation internally. In today's cost conscious environment I would be remiss not to include this as a strong point for GoodData as well.,GoodData was built from the ground up to be a cloud based product. This brings many benefits but to some companies it can also present some challenges in terms of security and adherence to internal policies as it relates to data security and accessibility. GoodData has a great track record of security but not every CIO/CTO can leverage an exclusive cloud environment due to corporate or government based regulations or feels comfortable with their (or their customers) sensitive data being in the cloud. This can be especially true in vertical markets such as financial services, medical and banking so finding a solution to this issue would be one area I might say they need to address...,Because I have sensitive visability into many of my clients information (some public companies) I am unable to give specific company names but some highlights of specific benefits I have seen include: Reporting Efficency: In one clients case they saw a 79% drop in the time it took to pull and analyze reports. So much so they were able to reduce head count within a department, saving a great deal of money as well. Better Customer Service: In another clients case they were able to reduce customeri ssues/problem tickets by as much as 40% by using the Gooddata platform. They got much higher visability into where in the customers journey there were challenges and then used Goodata to gain a better understanding of the problem (s) and better identify solutions giving their customer service team more power to make better decisions. Multi-Data Integration/Better Insights: With GoodData a customer can integrate and align virtualy any data source. In ones case it included, Facebook, Twitter, Yammer, Eloqua, Box and some internal data sets and sources. Bringing all these together in one platform created tremendous benefit in the areas of additional insight for more targeted marketing messaging, higher ability to enable sales and better visability into their social media efforts. This helped align sales and marketing efforts to drive more revenue and higher customer renewals.,10,10

Each client I have worked with and spoken too has renewed their GoodData subscription. I know of not one to date that has cancelled. The GoodData platform has a very high rate of renewal from the discussions I have had with their internal teams as well.

Overall, GoodData is a robust reporting tool that allows for easy access to data without getting lost in the UI (as can happen with other reporting tools). I've recommended the product to others and will continue to do so on the future.
Only recommendation to GoodData, amp-up your customer service.
