Overall Satisfaction with Yellowfin

The Yellowfin BI solution was our preferred choice in our journey to source an ideal BI partner for our RUBIQ GRC (Governance, Risk & Compliance) solution. Yellowfin checked all the boxes for us in terms of flexibility and adaptability to our environment and requirements, in embedding capability and white labelling of the product to provide us with a seamless BI platform supporting our GRC suite of the RUBiQ modules for our end clients. Furthermore RUBiQ is a cloud GRC solution offering and Yellowfin adapted to meet our multi-tenant requirements within our cloud environment. Living as we do in an age of information, enabling access to validated and verified information for critical decision making is an absolute must in any decision maker’s tool kit. The problem is that often information is disbursed and siloed within most organisations, leaving a lot of gut feel and guess work to do on the part of the decision maker. On top of this, a great deal of information in organisations today, still ends up being manually compiled and distributed in Word documents and Excel spreadsheets, this can allow for personal opinions and alteration of information for the "innocent purpose of showing the good and softening the bad" when reporting to executives. Unfortunately decision makers need all the key critical information, as real time as possible, to formulate an accurate picture to take key actions to circumvent and prevent crisis related situations. The integration of Yellowfin with our RUBiQ GRC solution allows us to ensure that this does not occur and key decision makers get timely accurate, real time data to confidently make the right decisions to ensure ongoing business continuity, viability and sustainability and growth within their organisations.
  • Presentation of information for executive reporting.
  • Collaboration and action task assignment on pinpointed issues highlighted in reports and dashboards.
  • End client easy self - service reporting.
  • The ability to predefine a colour for a specific graph as a selection option dynamically.
  • The ability to customise the label of a chart, especially with respect to performance related reporting graphs we need an increase in dynamic charting options to meet our more specialised requirements.
Integration of multiple data sources has met our requirements. Performance of real time reporting has been found to be exceptional.
We are still quite young in our deployments of Yellowfin for our end clients but we see the collaboration and information sharing capabilities of Yellowfin to be a key differentiator we can offer to our end clients through our GRC solution.
Other than those mentioned Yellowfin has worked well for the scope of what we need to report on for our end clients within the Governance, Risk and Compliance environment.
