Overall Satisfaction with Birst

Our organisation is using Birst to offer Analytics services to clients. It is used by the Analytics department, and is offered either as embedded as part of a larger software offering, or as a standalone solution
  • Start-to-end data preparation, warehousing and report/dashboard development minimizes points of failure in an analytics solution
  • Easy to quickly develop prototype/proof of concept projects, meaning more productivity
  • Solution built for the cloud works seamlessly for users to access data anywhere
  • Better documentation of features and user guides - it can be hard to find or understand how to use a feature
  • Better feature request system - currently feature requests are sources from the community forums based on votes - multiple requests for the same issue may not individually receive enough votes to get implemented
  • More options of chart types - currently limited in what we are able to provide as the best chart types for the data are not available.
  • Ability to do ad-hoc analysis and scheduled reports
  • Other
We were looking for a platform to be able to quickly develop and provide analytics services to our client. We have been able to do so with Birst
Birst is continually adding functionality to connect to external systems. There is the ability to connect multiple data sources. Excellent features for manipulating data during ETL.
Very easy and intuitive to use, however lacking some features and has some quality of life issues for everyday use
