Comprehensive but tricky reporting

What do you like best?

I really enjoyed the UI of Gooddata, as it was very straightforward. i also liked that it could import custom metrics built in Salesforce, which helped with our integration. Ultimately it had a lot of strong features.

What do you dislike?

It was difficult, at times, to get the exact right reporting across members of the organization. This may have been an issue on our side, as there were a number of metrics that led to inconsistency across reports, but it created some issues on what was the 'source of truth.' Also, a lack of being able to set exact date ranges for reports, rather than a floating range of days, was very frustrating.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Know exactly what type of reporting you need, as well as how many licenses. Make sure that this is the right solution for you, especially with respect to custom metrics you may need to build.

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

GoodData provides my org the ability to both report on, and forecast our companies performance. It has given us the ability to refocus and prioritize our margin, as GD showed us our true costs of doing business.

Helpful documentation, fairly easy to build out

What do you like best?

Good Data is oriented toward developers and allowing for application development on top of the platform. The visualizations are also great and once acclimated to the data modeling process is a wonderful BI tool

What do you dislike?

There are sometimes restrictions to intuition using Multi-dimensional Array Query Language that prevent a general data model from working without some trial and error, and the LDM design sometimes takes more time than seems useful. There are also some issues with LCM sync that make scalability sometimes annoying.

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

1) Internal reporting

2) Providing a BI platform for customers

Benefits: flexibility for multiple purposes, pre-built platform and infrastructure, cloud storage, etc.

If you want your data analysis concise & easy to use for future products start with GoodData

What do you like best?

There is lots to like from easy to read Quarterly breakdowns to Regional breakdowns and even better conversion rates and easy way to track (& graph) your momentum. Even better is the statistical analysis you can do!

What do you dislike?

The price, it's more than double (possibly triple depending on other BI systems) the costs of other BI software per user. This is the biggest drawback as we decide which BI software to commit to.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's pricey but so far all the bells and whistles are worth it.

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

GoodData provides great feedback for actional insights and data mining (their analytics are top notch & can get into the weeds a lot more)

Good Data? Good Choice

What do you like best?

I work closely with the data scientist to create queries based on what we need for our clients. Good Data easily tells us where errors are in our query and where we need to put our focus towards. The information is spit back out to us in a clean format that then can be dowloaded via Excel or PDF to avoid raw data to clients.

What do you dislike?

I do believe the interface can be cleaner. It is starting to look outdated. Also, depending on how large your data size is, you can be waiting for 10+ minutes for your information to load.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take your time, get to know the product! Don't dive in without any help, this takes time.

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

We create end of year data decks for each team. This is not possible without good data- it consolidates 1 season's worth of data in 1 deck instead of downloading game by game.

Expensive, stagnant platform can't keep up with the marketplace

What do you like best?

When I first started using GoodData several years ago, their features were inline with the best of the (very few) cloud analytics platforms. Their support team also used to be top-notch. These days, you can count on 3-4 exchanges, across 2-4 days just to 'clarify' the issue.

What do you dislike?

They have a proprietary query language that is difficult to use, learn, and get support on. That makes building even basic metrics a highly stressful, time-consuming process.

Their modeling tools are great for an extremely narrow, extraordinarily simple set of use cases. Many-to-many relationships are a complete disaster in GoodData. If there are legitimate many-to-many relationships in your model you should stop reading and run, as fast as you can, away from GoodData.

Their ETL tool is also locked down to their ecosystem, so finding help or support is extremely difficult.

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

We've used GoodData to build dashboards for internal company reporting, as well as customer facing reporting suites.

What do you dislike?

I love everything about this program, its one of favorite ones to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend doing trial so, you can get use the program and see all this offers to be able to solve and organize information that you need to keep and save to use later.

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

The benefits good data solves is to get things organized which in turn makes doing business and paperwork faster and easier to deal with. I have so, much good things to say about it the options of what you can use to solve everyday issues can be taken care of so, easy with what things program offers.
