"A pretty complete Analytics solution that keeps on improving."

What do you like best?

I personally like the flexibility that the Izenda's embedded architecture brings. Having worked with a lot of other solutions, I have always spent way too much time trying to circumvent rigid licensing rules when attempting to integrate BI tools into an enterprise and open architecture.

What do you dislike?

My main complaints are related to the old 5 series - which we still use. The schema management was a bit cumbersome, especially since we tried to link tables nicely in a start schema in order to help users create reports intuitively without too much knowledge of tables/joins. Hopefully the latest version will help with that.

The other thing was that reports are easy to "break" i.e. give the wrong result or errors, by just clicking on an option by mistake. The new version control will greatly help with that as well...

Charts start to look a little "old-style" and could use some revamping, especially the Maps. But they are obviously working on it as each new release brings its share of improvements...

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look forward to the next improvements.

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

Izenda integrates nicely into our data warehouse. We use it to provide reports and visualizations to internal and external customers. We also use it for analytics on or internal processes such as monitoring or ETL activities.

"Great reporting tool with white label option"

What do you like best?

Each new version has added significant new features; easy to use and to integrate with our software offering.

What do you dislike?

This is more our fault, but when we initially integrated Izenda into our product, we made a number of customizations to it that made it slower for support to identify issues. We have since upgraded to a newer version and are using it much more out of the box (still rebranded, though), and it has eased almost all of our concerns.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great product that can be white labeled and added to your existing software offering.

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

We wanted to provide our customers with a reporting tool that we could use to create a standard set of reports and that they can use to create custom reports.

"Powerful embedded BI platform"

What do you like best?

The interface to create reports is intuitive for non-technical users

What do you dislike?

Our experience to date is with version 6. The report scheduler is not user friendly. We are unable to load-balance session state using Redis. Our understanding is that these items are addressed in version 7.

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

We recently transitioned our SaaS platform from Silverlight to Angular. During the transition, we decided to leverage embedded BI from Izenda rather than develop our own ad hoc reporting engine. This proved to be the right decision and allowed us to get to market faster at a lower cost.

Months later we realized our employees could also use Izenda to aggregate and analyze customer data. This has greatly improved the efficiency of our Customer Service and Finance departments.

"Great embedded BI solution"

What do you like best?

I really like their flexible architecture. They have many integration and stand alone modes that fits all scenarios. The technology stack aligns quite well with ours - so that was a plus. The visualizations and ad hoc reporting capabilities are great. The simple licensing model is a must, and very good customer support.

What do you dislike?

The documentation on integration for both series 6 and 7 is a bit lacking - although I have seen a great push on getting it updated, its had to get any fine details. Due to this it has taken a long time for us to embed the solution properly.

Although series 7 has many advantages, it is also lacking in certain areas compared to series 6. Having no export of the reports makes it hard to mange tractability with source control. 7 series is still quite immature with a lot of bugs. Performance is always a concern.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For series 7, carefully choose your deployment mode, as there are obvious advantages / disadvantages to fully integrated vs standalone etc.

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

Integrating izenda 7 series has giving our product the ability to the end user to create and administer dashboards and ad hoc reporting, ultimately giving the end user better insight into their data without having to contact us for base report modifications. We essentially needed a BI tool, and this fit the bill!

"Powerful and easy to use BI Tool"

What do you like best?

Izenda's ease of use is one of their biggest strengths. Another main advantage is that users have a great deal of control in terms of formatting and displaying reports. If required, a report can be formatted "Pixel Perfect" for accurate printing requirements. We were also able to embed Izenda seamlessly into our application making it seem like a natural extension to our product.

What do you dislike?

It would be great if power users were able to input a SQL statement to build a data set. Also another

one of the challenges we encountered was the deployment of Izenda to other internal and external environments.

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

Many of customers would like to build their own dashboards and reporting tools. With Izenda's ease of use and seamless integration we now are able to offer our customers the flexibility for them to write their own reports.

"Embedded BI done right"

What do you like best?

Izenda Understands embedded BI and what an OEM needs in order to make the BI reporting part of the application instead of a distant add on.

What do you dislike?

Izenda's new version has the experience of a mature product, but the implementation is new, so the ramp up time is higher than you might like.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider if their report capabilities meet your needs. They are still evolving in this area. You also have to be prepared to work with aggressive release cycles.

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

Our customers need multi-platform reports (mobile, desktop, tablet and paper) that can be put together quickly and changed on demand. Izenda meets this need.
