Analyzer is a very powerful BI tool

What do you like best?

Analyzer allows you to apply your Excel skills into a powerful web-based analytics tool to create in depth insights across a large dataset. It is fantastic for your traditional power users, but not as appealing to a novice user. It has very good (not great) mobile capabilities and incredible flexibility for data management.

What do you dislike?

The visualization is not best in class. There are some new features that get Analyzer closer to par, but still short of modern UI designs on the market. For example, expanding columns by dragging the border doesn't exist, scrolling feels outdated (everything is contained in the pivot box), especially when you are used to sliding your finger to navigate down or sideways on a mobile device or touch screen laptop. Performance can be poor when using some of the advanced functionality or custom MDX queries against a large data set.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We leverage Analyzer with our customer base to solve problems throughout the retail sector, from inventory management, to promotion optimization, to accelerating new product launches. Building flexible templates with advanced filtering capabilities has been a big positive for our business.

Use frequently to create and change reports for RSi customers

What do you like best?

Intuitevely understandable design

Can build beautiful charts and graphs and gauges

Group table functionality allowing to pick store-item combinations

Can rename columns to reflect understandable metrics for particular users

MDX and formulas help to build much more on available metrics

Advanced filter is really helpful

Alerts and Sorting rules are available and help to prioritize issues

User guide from strategy companion has been recently available to me and it's much easier to sort out how things work having it

What do you dislike?

Can't process reports containing large data sets & MDX due to too long waiting time / crushing

Not available in Russian Language - stops some users from using

Always wishing responce time was faster on every move / action

MDX are really complex, still strugling to figure them out

Some times session expires unexpectedly and changes that i made to reports are lost. if there could be a warning or autosave - that would help a lot .

Recommendations to others considering the product

User-friendly interface, nice charts and graphs to support your presentations with fact data

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I help customer solve their problems based on established RSi use cases - On-Shelf availability, distribution compliance, phantom stocks, new product launches, promo analysis, forecasting planning etc..

Other than that we have customers who use retailer portals for downloading the data. They enjoy Strategy Companion (RI in our case), they say it's much more comfortable, faster, easy to use then retailer portals (not mentioning customers who just get the data in csv....).

What Self-Service Business Intelligence solution do you use?

Strategy Companion Analyzer

What do you like best?

Dashboarding is incredibly easy...I've seen a lot of BI tools and they all try to do dashboarding but Strategy Companion makes it so easy, flexible, and quick to do.

Also, love :

1. Ad hoc analysis is powerful and simple to use

2. Easy to deliver reports / share reports once you have created them. In addition to the default web view you can export to Excel, Powerpoint, PDF

3. Security easily integrates with AD

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike here. It doesn't have all the calculations that Excel has, but its not supposed to be that kind of tool . For a web based tool operating within the constratins of a web browser, the responsiveness and large number of options is amazing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This the only premier BI Tool that allows you to design, and publish reports in the same web interface. All the other ones I have seen have to rely on a thick client to do the design..because it is tricky to make it happen well in a web environment. Strategy Companion has done it and done it well. This greatly simplifies the user experience.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1. One version of the truth ...held in a central respository.. centrally secured and centrally defined

2. Delivering reports has been made easy...you can automated report / data delivery on a fixed schedule or by a trigger / data event

What do you like best?

The flexibility and power of the tool is very impressive. After a very short learning curve the tool is nicely intuitive for basic and moderately advanced functions.

What do you dislike?

Little to no documentation or support for more advanced functionality. There is a lot of untapped potential just due to no one knowing how to properly accessing it.

Filtering and custom calculations are not always as straightforward as they seam leading to bad data pulls and misleading results.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Similar to products like Microsoft's Excel and Access there is a ton of power under the hood of this tool. The flexibility and customization is amazing and the functionality is limited only by your knowledge of the product. Unfortunately advanced knowledge will be limited to on hand experience as I have found limited training and supporting documentation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Primary use has been with Supply Chain needs and Retail Execution

Analyzer - successful SSAS cube web deployment

What do you like best?

The Strategy Companion team took a very hands-on partnership approach to our implementation. They assisted with our rollout, complex security integration needs, and continued to reach out to assist our business users realize the full potential of the software.

What do you dislike?

There were user pains with the switch as the users were used to the old Excel interfaces. However, all problems were either resolved with training, or reported to the Analyzer team as minor enhancement requests.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Initially, I just wanted an integration tool to leverage an existing SSAS cube into a web-based front-end for ease of access and use - our old solution was just Excel front-end. It met this need fully and easily. The more we dug in, the more we realized this was a robust business intelligence solution. We have started to more fully utilize the tool's capabilities.

Powerful program but a bit too complex for casual users.

What do you like best?

The tool is pretty flexible in it's ability to report and manipulate data, and has a wide range of visual options.

What do you dislike?

Functionality is not always intuitive, and many of our more casual users have a hard time getting started.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Generally, CPG companies use the product to solve for inventory and pricing opportunities in the retailer stores that sell their product. For ourselves, it is a software that we can provide to our CPG customers that offers powerful reporting functionality to solve these supply chain problems.
