We are still quite young in our deployments of Yellowfin for our end clients but we see the collaboration and information sharing capabilities of Yellowfin to be a key differentiator we can offer to our end clients through our GRC solution.

Yellowfin makes it easy to share and distribute reports and information through the various dissemination options available. On of the key features of the product is the scripting interface where charts and graphs can now dynamically form part of non Yellowfin interfaces but still be driven by the Yellowfin engine.

The sharing and collaboration features of Yellowfin BI are a very powerful part of the BI application. Reports can be shared, distributed, broadcasted and embedded (e.g. into websites) with only a few clicks.

The sharing capabilities were fairly good within the tool, specifically in the latest version in which we upgraded. However, after using tools like Tableau, I learned that the Yellowfin sharing was still on the novice side compared to other tools. The access/security was easily changed but the "role" concept used was a little clunky -- not as straight forward as we would have liked.

  • Yellowfin believes that data is better when shared and the product has been built around that concept.
  • Role based access privileges enables customers to ensure data security and proper access control. Access control is defined for administrators, developers, analysts and end user level to properly access the data.
  • Multicast Server [can be] use to distribute and scheduling of reports with various format like PDF, XLS etc.
