Overall Satisfaction

  • We are an OEM for the product... Compared to some other alternatives we explored, it does what it is supposed to do VERY WELL. Specifically, we tried working with GoodData dynamic schemas and run analytics on that. We had to build the schemas through an API. GoodData did not work for us either on the API side or the dynamic schema side.
  • Easy to integrate, API for creating and managing spaces works as advertised. It could be improved and I understand they are making some changes. It would be great to have a more advanced API like a REST API that supports more functions, but they are working on adding what we need.
  • It doesn't look as "sexy" as some of the other competitors in the space but it generates professional dashboards and reports. For example, the GoodData look and feel is more modern and appealing, and is better at exploiting advanced browser features, but Birst is just as functional.
  • As an OEM our ROI assesment is different... How easy is to integrate, how easy is to support, etc... So far our business case benefits are holding true.
As long as their product innovation continues and our current implementation is supported I don't see a reason not to.
Good company, good management, good guys... they promised things to us and they have delivered. The product definitely worked as advertised and met our particular use case.
