TrustRadius ReviewGoodData 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.,9,Looker, Domo, Cyfe, Kissmetrics, Woopra, IBM CloudBurst, Tableau Desktop and SimilarWeb PRO,8,8,Access Auditor, Microsoft Cloud App Security, dbForge Studio for OracleGoodData is here to stay- Monetize your data efficiently.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.,8,PowerBI,Microsoft Power BI, Salesforce Analytics Cloud, Toad Data Point,It did not have a great impact on the business in the initial stages. In the premature phase organizations generally don't need technically sophisticated tools. The ROI gradually improves and we manage $6-$7 on every dollar spent. Getting timely insights from GoodData analytics and saving time on building and manually updating reports has led to more efficient use of resources, technology and time. When the data amounts have increased, GoodData has proved to be very beneficial as it can scale accordingly and still works efficiently. The pricing hasn't been issue when using large quantities of data to harness insights from it.Get things done. Fast and for many.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.,5,There is no real ROI on BI solution. Sadly.,Microsoft Power BI, Qlik Sense, Tableau Desktop, Google Analytics Premium and LookerSelf service BI with GoodDataGoodData 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.,9,Birst,7,8GoodData 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 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 for Salesforce Business Intelligence and AnalyticsWe helped a technology client of ours evaluate and implement GoodData. Our client was spending several hours each week exporting data from Salesforce and/or manually inputting Salesforce data into spreadsheets to track historical pipeline by region, product and opportunity stage. Our client was also trying to analyze sales stage velocity to understand what the best practice stage duration was for closed won opportunities. Our client also wanted to understand sales rep behavior. GoodData allows our client to track changes in pipeline with detailed graphs and charts. You can analyze across dimensions, including regions, products and stages. You can set indicators, such as sales management targets, to measure performance. You can correlate sales rep behavior (ex. activities) to rep performance (ex. closed-won opps). Integration to Salesforce data was very simple, although it does require a Salesforce user license.,This is not a real time data flow. We scheduled an automatic daily refresh from Salesforce to GoodData though. One of the benefits of GoodData is that it snapshots the Salesforce data. Unfortunately, you cannot load historical Salesforce data and expect to take advantage of the "Changes in Pipeline" capabilities day 1. This is not a deficiency of GoodData, as much as I am just trying to set expectations that it will take some time to benefit from these capabilities.,Our client is saving at least 6 hours per week from manual data entry and analysis. Improved forecasting. Improved sales rep and opportunity activity analysis.,9,8,10,1,Our client is using it for sales analysis - across regions, sales reps and products. Our client is using it to answer questions like 1) How is the pipeline progressing through the quarter? 2) Are we likely to meet our numbers based on the current pipeline breakdown? It is challenging within basic Salesforce reporting to monitor changes in the pipeline. GoodData help them understand what happened to the pipeline from the beginning of the month to the end of the month. Answers questions like - Which deals had a closed date that pushed to the following month? What opportunities increased/decreased in value? Helps our client see how opportunities created flow through the different stages and where are the major drop offs. By looking at the created to won conversion rate you get a better understanding of how many new opportunities you will need in the future to meet your targets. Also helps you understand sales velocity. Helps you understand which sales rep activities drive opportunity creation and which close deals. Analyzes which sales activities win deals. Compares specific rep activities levels to averages.,,,Professional services company,9,Online training Self-taught,8,Yes. Some admin training would be helpful though.,No,8,9,7,8,,No,,Confidential.GoodData - tying together disparate data.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.,7,SQL Server Reporting Services,SQL Server Integration Services, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Visual Studio Team System,10,8GoodData RocksWe 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,9,Birst,,8,7Using GoodData For Zendesk Advanced InsightsWe 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.,8,,Zendesk, JIRA Software, HipChat,8,7BigData = GoodDataGoodData 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.,9,DOMO and Knotice,10,We have 5 departments, 22 users, and it's slowly being rolled out.,9,10GoodData is More Than Good!GoodData enables me to easily measure the success of my group and the customers I work with without having a background in BI or analytics. The interface and help forums guide beginners through the basics of using reports and accessing their data so they can prove their success internally as well. After all, your data is only valuable if you can quickly and easily present it to effect change!,Great for entry level to advanced users - plug and play custom metric builder. Generate beautiful reports that are easily customizable! Quick and easy tools to embed custom code and customization to your dashboards to add branding or a bit of personality.,Advanced SQL users may feel a bit too guided through the report or custom metric building process.,10,MySQL,10,Everyone uses GoodData on my team and in our company as we support our customers to use it as well.,10,10Great Product. Sharp/Flexible Reports and Easy Report Dissemination.The IT department used GoodData to combine data from multiple sources (SalesForce, Accounting software, phone systems) to produce meaningful 360 view reports of each customer. It was being developed within IT with the plan to deploy across the entire organization for end users from Sales, Operations, etc. It addressed the issue of previously disjointed data sources and brought all reporting to a single standard. It also allowed for easy distribution of reports to individuals across the organization.,Storytelling. GoodData allowed a technical user such as myself to reach non-technical users through visual storytelling (graphs, charts, etc) that were easily disseminated to the end user. Provided a single reporting standard so end users would no longer have to manually combine reports from multiple systems.,Simple, but meaningful. The color coding options for certain chart items relied on entering the hexadecimal code, causing the end user to have to do an internet search for a hexadecimal chart and entering the corresponding number. For such an advanced product, it felt like a clunky way to go about this simple function.,6,,5,N/A.,9,8,9GoodData, it is that good!We use Gooddata to provide metric report for all departments across Enterprise IT. This allows key stakeholders to see their teams performance and current trends which has led to improved response times and higher resolutions.,Very easy to use and manage Stylish and appealing reports and dashboards Easy to customize and report on the information that matters,Some of the filters only allow up to 200 results. This creates a problem when filtering out free text fields.,9,Increased resolution rates by raising awareness Centralized reporting allowed to reduce time spent running multiple reports in multiple systems Setup was very quick and easy,,10

GoodData stacks up very well against most of the tools but there are some advantages other tools have over GoodData. We selected GoodData because of the ease of use of the tool and since we dont have tons of data that we need to process. for our needs this tool suited the best and did everything very beautifully. Drill-down analysis, charts, mobile support - all of it was beautiful.

  • PowerBI
Power BI happens to be very basic and customization is limited at best. Fine for basic dashboards but not particularly good if you need to get more complex data insights.
GoodData gives you the functionality of customized dashboards and is also very scalable. The price might be an issue but in the long run as the firm grows and you end up saving significantly on investing in GoodData.
GoodData requires less maintenance as well since it can handle large quantities of data where as basic BI tools like PowerBI might end up crashing or might not perform efficiently when dataset size increases.
The Power BI platform also doesn't provide that amount of integrations with data sources as GoodData. Hence we chose GoodData over PowerBI.

Logical data modelling and XAE (MAQL) are reasons why I like using GoodData for projects where I need to connect small chunks of data from multiple sources and enable holistic analysis across the whole company quickly for everyone. With PowerBI or Qlik Sense you need 5 times more people and resources just to get things running. Looker is expensive, Google Analytics Premium is expensive and ill-suited for anything else other than e-commerce. Tableau doesn't support collaboration and report distribution properly.

  • SQL Server Reporting Services
SQL Server Reporting Services is great for building reports and informational tools for an organization using shared and/or relational data sources. Due to the nature of our business, we needed the ability to tie together multiple non-shared or relational data sources. GoodData provides all the necessary back-end and front-end tools in order to meet those needs.

We implemented multiple clients in Birst and GoodData. Birst has some powerful features that GoodData does not have, but the admin overhead associated with Birst is at least double of that in GoodData. GoodData is SO EASY after developing in Birst that our analytics team was literally joyful. We also experienced a lot of quality issues with Birst at that time. GoodData had some quality issues back in the 2012ish timeframe but quality and uptime have been outstanding for many years.

We also looked at Tableau and ultimately decided to go with them instead of GoodData because their performance was considerably better, we liked the mapping feature which GoodData did not offer, and the calculated fields were also easier to create and process.
