Pros and Cons

  • Presentation of information for executive reporting.
  • Collaboration and action task assignment on pinpointed issues highlighted in reports and dashboards.
  • End client easy self - service reporting.
  • The ability to predefine a colour for a specific graph as a selection option dynamically.
  • The ability to customise the label of a chart, especially with respect to performance related reporting graphs we need an increase in dynamic charting options to meet our more specialised requirements.

The Yellowfin Pintl Strategy

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • The Yellowfin user interface fits seamlessly into our own web software as it too is designed in the latest web technologies making it easy to use and easily accessible to our client base.
  • The Yellowfin user interface is intuitive and easy to use, elevating VSV clients from needing in-depth training on the product before true value can be realised.
  • The Yellowfin architecture supports the Pintl architecture 100% due to a similar design strategy and as such no real overhead is added to the Pintl system for the addition of the Yellowfin product nor does it add any additional IT overhead to be used.
  • The Yellowfin product is quick and simple to develop reports and dashboards in cutting turn-around-time at the VSV development team and when new/custom reports are required by VSV clients.
  • Initially the Yellowfin business model was difficult to align to the VSV model but through some simple negotiations a workable model was reach which made in commercial application viable
  • Some additional licensing models could also be of value as we do not use the product in a pure business intelligence only application.

Flexible and useful tool that meets many visualization/analytic needs

Score 5 out of 10
Vetted Review

Pros and Cons

  • Yellowfin has great visualizations and has been designed well for the business user to be able to simply navigate without issue.
  • The tool is very flexible to use allowing multiple data sources to connect.
  • They have done a good job in researching the market to understand and position their tool for a great core audience -- the tool was great for us at the time.
  • The tool was somewhat clunky to use at times (specifically the mapping functionality).
  • Could use some tips from Tableau to understand the "Apple" like design and simplicity of developing.
  • Should have worked closer with the supporting vendor as the tool did not feel seamless in how it operated with ACL and their data/analytics tools at the time.
  • Yellowfin was a tool that completed the task we initially asked it to do, however upon further research, we rated other tools to be more capable and user friendly. With a little improvement Yellowfin could continue rising into a great analytics tool.
