The Yellowfin product technologies are superior and offers more flexibility in application. The Yellowfin product can be used in several different areas such a report engine over and above being a solid business intelligence tool. It further needs significant IT overhead to be used and can easily be integrated and offered as part of a larger solution.

My selection of Yellowfin based on following criteria for the Indian market:

  • Availability in Linux platform to process high volume of transaction with CAL (concurrent user access license) model to use multiple server with high concurrent users
  • Dynamic storyboarding, collaborative and timeline approach for senior management
  • Fast development and deployment with web-based centralised architecture
  • Value/$- Yellowfin has been #1 on BARCs value/$ rating for the past 3 years. Plus it has a very simple user-based licensing model

Our reporting group uses Tableau extensively and compared to Yellowfin, Tableau is much easier to use (partially because more time was invested in setting it up properly, but also the design and features).

We ran a full procurement project to select Yellowfin and started with a long list of over 20 BI products. Key reasons for choice were ease of use, visual looks, product integrations and cost (both licence purchase and development of content).

Yellowfin BI has a strong focus on a clear structured and easy to use user interface. Furthermore, the licence model was adequate for a BI system with a lot of end users.
