  • One Segment is a dashboard in Zoho Analytics which is the best part where you can just plug and play and your dashboards are ready on your database even if you share your dashboard through the external link which is the best part of Zoho Analytics you can even share your dashboard through your link to other people who is not part of your organization with the customized password so that they can access the dashboard and even you have the access that what you want to show on your dashboard to the other people.
  • The second segment is the data integration part where we have connected our databases through multiple platforms like Amazon Redshift, MoEngage, and many other platforms. Data integration is very easy you can connect on Zoho Analytics without finding any issues which I have faced in many other platforms during deployment but in the case of Zoho Analytics there is no such issue you can comfortably connect your database and leverage the features more appropriately.
  • The third segment is writing query within Zoho Analytics which is another great feature provided by Zoho on top of the above on your query you can make your dashboards, graphs, and pivots too for your further analysis which is a great part for us.
  • They restricts you while writing your SQL query more than 2 SQL sub query within inside them. So you can't able to use more than 2 sub query within the SQL query in Zoho Analytics.
  • More training videos could be provided for all the features inside them so that anybody can fully utilize the Zoho Analytics in a more proper way.
  • There is no shortcut keys you can use within the Zoho Analytics you have to use mouse and track pad to navigate your cursor which I feel they can improve this further.

  • Integrates with a wide variety of applications
  • Provides opportunities for creating custom metrics
  • Provides a user friendly environment wherein layers of analysis can be performed
  • Provides flexibility and custom options in the way data is summarized and aggregated
  • We've had trouble in the past with getting user permissions to work the way we expect them to
  • The restriction where you can only add 3 layers of SQL statements has been burdensome at times
  • We would love to see a synchronization frequency of every 1 hour. The 3 hour frequency works out ok though.

  • Graphically construct an analysis from multiple data tables
  • Granular user access controls to data tables and filters
  • Integrations both direct and via API with third party tools
  • Excellent integration with other Zoho apps like CRM and Books
  • Limited options to distribute reports. Would like to be able to distribute to S3, FTP, Zoho WorkDrive, and other destinations automatically.
  • The application is designed for GUI use, and while it does support writing SQL this feels awkward
  • Not as many formatting options for report output as I would like

  • It gives a single unified view everyday for our sales team to look at to track their progress and the progress of their peers in achieving the targets
  • It helps Account Executives to analyse their sales pipeline and find out the score for each deal and any high potential deal that is not getting enough attention
  • Some of our consultants have built very powerful stories on how and what impacts sales using storyboards and they are well understood by senior leadership
  • When compared to Tableau or PowerBI, I feel Zoho lacks the details on design, color palette, fonts, some advanced charts, etc. Tableau has somehow very new-age UI/UX
  • Some advanced AI techniques for customer segmentation (like clustering), etc. using standard algorithms like k-means etc. is not available or difficult to use

  • Integration of data from our other Zoho apps.
  • Report types and KPI options to create insightful reports.
  • Packed with features for all business intelligence reporting.
  • The number of pre-built reports that are generated when a Zoho app integration is set-up is nice, but at the same same cumbersome in the fact that it forces you to scroll through many reports or use the search feature.
  • The sync with other Zoho apps is not real time.
  • The learning curve for me has been a bit steep, but for others this may not be the case. My background is not analytical or data related so I've had to learn with patience.

  • Connecting to different systems
  • Dashboarding
  • Reporting views - pivots, csv, excel, SQL queries
  • Overlapping workspaces - currently only one workspace can be linked to an existing data source.
  • Emailing reports - there is a feature but Zoho emails don't land up in inbox.

  • Automation - The ability to pull in an API feed using a scheduled task makes it as easy as "set it and forget it".
  • Scalability and performance - We have never run into an issue with too much data, it always performs well.
  • Ease of use - The easy to use interface makes it usable for all levels of technological sense.
  • Wizards - It might be helpful to have some cookie cutter type wizards to help new (and less experienced) users get started quickly.
  • Tutorials and Help - One thing that I find is that some of my team who are not as tech savvy end up coming to us to ask questions as they can't seem to find answers to their questions easily.

  • The wide range of charts available to analyze the data makes this software very attractive and intuitive.
  • It has the ability to collaborate with other team members inside the software and it helps take more insightful decisions around different reports.
  • Zoho Analytics has a lot of variety when it comes to supported files type. I can import different data in different file type and I know that it will be supported by Zoho.
  • The smart assistant tool has been very helpful in generating many reports automatically when needed and it has also been of great help when it comes to forecasting.
  • It definitely has a steep learning curve and it can be quite overwhelming, especially with the lack of proper support and tutorials on how to use the features to get the right results.
  • I would like to see more code-free features because some of the tools require some level of coding experience which makes the experience difficult.
  • There is not much customization available for the query tables.
