Overall Satisfaction with Birst

Implemented Salesforce Solution Accelarator v2.0 for numerous customers
  • Agility and speed to deploy a datamart or data warehouse very quickly.
  • Drill down and drill through capability from summary to detail level data.
  • Easy Integration with Salesforce.com.
  • More visibility into the backend, troubleshooting still has a large split still between support and professional services.
  • Improved multideveloper support (check-in and check-out capability).
  • Better versioning of metadata.
  • Increased visibility to data issues
  • snapshot based analysis
  • better visualizations than salesforce.com reporting
Birst is still the best SaaS based BI system IMHO
N/A as I do implementations of Birst.
Birst Connect + Application Connectors alpws to load almost any source on-prem or cloud based
sharing and collaboration isn't the strongest suit, but has enough capability to share content and spaces and has a very good security model
Largely depends on budget and the landscape of data sources that need to be analyzed.
