Overall Satisfaction with TARGIT

We use Targit primarily for sales and purchasing reporting, though we also have some finance and web site data. Every department in the company uses it. It has helped us uncover product sales trends that would have been difficult and time-consuming via other means, and we're constantly expanding the ways in which we use it.
  • Targit reports are incredibly easy to use. The software is instantly impressive to everyone who sees it, which helps with the buy-in.
  • Our Targit developer knew parts of our NAV database better than we did, and we've been working with it for 10 years.
  • User management is incredibly fast and easy. The controls that you can apply are vast, yet easy to understand and implement.
  • The ability to do batch and scheduled reports is phenomenal.
  • I think including the Data Discovery module in the base package instead of charging extra for it would go a long way to making the software better. If you don't have much background with SSIS or SSAS and you do not buy the module, it will be difficult for you to add or modify data sources.
  • There are a couple small tweaks to the interface that would be helpful but are far from necessary. For example, unlike an Excel pivot table, you cannot move the measures above the dimensions in a table interface. There are workarounds for this, however.
  • I understand the need to make their calculation language as complex as it is, but it still seems like it could be made simpler. It's helpful that it comes with several standard calculations that you can easily add to an object, but if you want to modify a calculation or create your own, it can be more complicated than I would like.
  • This has been difficult to quantify for us. It has easily saved hundreds of hours of our analyst's time in putting together and running reports.
Targit was more expensive, but it was going to be easier for us to add more data sources (Google Analytics in particular) than Jet Reports would have been. I also liked the reporting interface in Targit much better; the ability to click on elements in an object to dynamically filter other objects on the page saves a significant amount of screen real estate.
Targit is great when you have limited analysis resources but a high demand for analysis. Every report that's built can be customized with nearly every field in your database as a filter, allowing a wide range of end users to derive value from the data. Targit is especially great if you already have some in-house SSIS and SSAS expertise since that's what the platform is built on.

Evaluating TARGIT and Competitors

  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
The ability to add more data sources of nearly infinite variety was probably the major factor in choosing Targit over competitors.
I would have specified the desired reporting outcome better so that the implementation could have been completed faster.
