"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 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.

"Izenda is a great product and have excellent customer support."

What do you like best?

We were able to seamlessly integrate Izenda ad hoc reports with CureMD EMR. Izenda provided excellent technical support to help with the integration. It was very easy to white label the product. Our customers love it as they are able to use it with minimal training. It is intuitive and a very stable product.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike about the product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would strongly recommend Izenda to any one looking for an affordable, easy to use and powerful ad hoc reporting solution.

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

We were trying to provide our customers in the healthcare industry with an ad hoc reporting solution. Most of our customers are not tech savvy and ease of use was our number one priority. Izenda was able to achieve this goal perfectly. By implementing ad hoc reports solution we have been able to reduce our support costs significantly. It has also been a good selling feature.

"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.

"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.

"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!

"Izenda Integrated with Payroll system"

What do you like best?

The seamless integration of the ad hoc report writer product within our Payroll system. This was one of the major reasons why we chose Izenda. We also like the Agile fashion with which the Izenda team utilizes to resolve our outstanding issues, questions and requests.

What do you dislike?

We would like to go further in our efforts to tailor the report writer for broader usage across the Payroll system that we've developed. Becoming part of the long term strategy with Izenda is something we'd like to advocate.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take a look at the dashboard and visualization capabilities, they are quite strong, and could be significant for you if you are looking at visualizing data.

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

Deliver an integrated ad-hoc report writer that is bundled together with our Payroll system to our clients. We were successful, however we implemented pivot capability that we wanted Izenda to implement for us. Because we delivered a data solution, we are now having performance issues

"Izenda brought a whole new level of reporting management to our customers."

What do you like best?

The flexibility and comprehensive options available to customers using an embedded feature that we can brand results in a win-win for us and our customers.

What do you dislike?

Some of the embedding tasks are not as documented as needed causing the setup efforts take longer than desired.

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

The ability to embed an ad hoc reporting development and management system into our product.

"Happy with Izenda Relationship and Technology"

What do you like best?

Izenda provides administrative features that can be managed in the UI by business users. Izenda delivers robust self-service that we were able to seamlessly integrate in our applications workflow. Business users can create the reports, dashboards and data visualizations they need without IT. The solution is secure and respects our security requirements which was key as banking, financial service, PCI and HIPAA compliance were also extremely important.

What do you dislike?

It fits our needs very well so nothing to dislike at this point

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

Providing self service BI, analytics, and reporting capabilities to our clients to reduce the dependency on IT to create custom reports

"Outstanding "

What do you like best?

As a new client, our experience has been excellent starting with sales and then working with the implementation team.

What do you dislike?

We've not had any dislikes throughout our implementation process. Izenda's team of employees provided an excellent implementation and support plan to embed their application in our applications for a smooth startup.

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

In the past, we relied on hard encoded reports with little if any flexibility to tailor reports to meet each client's requirements. Our clients and our company can now meet and exceed expectations.

"We required a quick to implement easy to use solution and iZenda fits the bill perfectly"

What do you like best?

Non technical end users can now self serve their reports based on our published data model. The number of report and ad hoc query requests to our Data services team have reduced significantly

What do you dislike?

The Report Subscription model is quite cumbersome if you want to share a report across a number of end users on a schedule.

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

Ad hoc querying has now been placed in the hands of the end users and away from the IT department. End users were always making requests for new reports and queries but these have now been eliminated almost completely.

"Integrated BI provides excellent analytics and has improved sales of CRM system"

What do you like best?

Dashboards and the ability to customize reports to drill into records in the system. Expressions and data source reports have made the need for views much more limited.

What do you dislike?

Data sources tab could be easier to use. The rest of the tabs when creating a report are easy to use...that tab, you need some DB knowledge

Recommendations to others considering the product

Seamless integration with other software products. a lot of power back end if you need it and have ability to customize/code. Presents great in sales presentations

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

Analytics, personal productivity, data mining and extracts for integration with other systems. We have realized all of these.

The data source selection view while creating a new report

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommended.

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

Building lots of simple to complicated reports. Training non-IT folks to use Izenda so the tasks could be shifted to someone else instead of having developers to do it.

What do you like best?

The ease of use for end users. Users who are not technical inclined are able to create reports with ease.

The product is great for a simple, easy business intelligence service.

"Seamless integration"

What do you like best?

The ability to implement Izenda seamlessly into our .NET forms application was by far the best offering of all the reporting tools we trialed. With Izenda we can offer our users Dashboards, custom reports, and ad-hoc reporting, right within our own application. Integrating Izenda directly into our source code meant that we were able to use small parts of Izenda as core functionality, while reserving the more advanced sections of Izenda for customers willing to pay extra for the licensing. Being able to integrate Izenda directly into our security model meant a very high level of control, right from the start.

What do you dislike?

The charts and data styles are a little out of date, we're hoping that Izenda will update to a more modern presentation in the future. It would also be great to see more sophisticated CSS segmentation on the report result markup, this would allow for a much higher level of visual customization.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Spend a day doing implementation to see for yourself how fast you can get off the ground with this product.

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

Our users are now able to do ad-hoc reporting inside our application. Even when we need to build custom reports, we've shifted this work from our developers to our Product Support team, and cut the turn around time by 75% in the process.

"Izenda Reports and Instant Reports"

What do you like best?

Izenda functionality is as advertised. This fit an ad-hoc reporting need for our product suite and Izenda's solution has integrated nicely, providing us with a high degree of functionality in just a few weeks of development work. Post sales support has been solid as well.

What do you dislike?

There have been a few bugs that have caused some issues, but the Izenda team has been responsive at addressing these. (In the plus category again, their development cycle is short, so fixes find their way into the code in short order)

Recommendations to others considering the product

We have not yet taken advantage of all of the functionality of the Izenda product and are already pleased with our purchase (we are not using the slick Dashboard functionality for example. I would say that the Izenda sales team did an honest job of representing what their product does- which is a very important aspect when trying to weigh various options. I would do your best to clearly explain your business needs to their team and then collaboratively determine the fit with their offerings.

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

The need for ad-hoc reporting functionality embedded into our User Interface. We now have the ability to provide this functionality as a consulting service (without needing our developers to get involved), as well as offering our customers self-service ad-hoc functionality, This has led to happier customers and a more robust use of the data that we capture in our other modules.

"Great Reporting Tool"

What do you like best?

The ease at which we can use Izenda to give our customers the reports that they need, directly from within our product. It's even handier that we can integrate it directly into our code base, instead of having to pass off requests to an external application.

What do you dislike?

The styles of the charts provided don't quite fit with our current designs, as they look slightly old.

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

We are using Izenda to provide ad-hoc reporting to our customers in an easier-to-use format that we had previously. Using Izenda, we have switched from developers writing the reports to product support instead, saving a lot of time.

"Modern & easy to use reporting itegrates into our existing web app."

What do you like best?

Easy to use, allows customers to create ad-hoc as well as standard reports with easy-to-use web-based tools. No external report creation software needed.

What do you dislike?

Nothing yet. We've just starting implementing Izenda, and are still in the early stages.

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

Moving from an old, dated embedded Crystal Reports report engine to Izenda gives us beautiful reports that are simple to create. End-users can create reports on-the-fly.

"Friendly Reporting Tool for the Average Business/Non-Technical User"

What do you like best?

Izenda offers a business-friendly reporting solution for users who don't have a lot of technical experience. Our clients using their tool appreciate it because of its simplicity and ease of use when using the ad-hoc reporting and dashboard features. They are able to create and customize reports unlike most reporting environments. We also like Izenda because it is white label friendly and integrates easily with other applications.

What do you dislike?

Compared to its competitors, the visualizations and interactivity for reports are not as robust, but they still get the job done.

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

In our industry, most SaaS providers do not have a reporting tool at all which required database export jobs and IT involvement to create reports using complex reporting environments. Izenda has made it simple for every day business users to access their data for various uses.

"Essette Chooses Izenda’s Self-Service Business Intelligence Solution"

What do you like best?

We like the ability to point Izenda to our existing reporting database and immediately provide our clients with the ability to create dashboards that represent multiple graphical reports.

What do you dislike?

We haven't found anything that we disliked outside of the basic nuisances that come with integrating software. There have been occasional places where we aren't able to customize the code or the look and feel to be consistent with the rest of the application but those places are minor.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Download the source code and start to implement it.

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

We have always had the ability to allow clients to create their own reports but those reports were limited in their presentation capabilities. Izenda expands on those capabilities and gives our clients much more control over how the report looks.

What do you like best?

Izenda integrates easily into our existing ASP.NET applications and it offers plenty of customization. It was also more reasonably priced than competing systems that we evaluated. Overall, the reason we went with Izenda though was the seamless integration.

Some of the filters and charts can get complicated to understand and relay to users

"Easy to use tool ideal for fixed data sets"

What do you like best?

I liked the fact it took little time to implement this tool. It was for one of our legacy products. Very small table structure with five main modules. We did have the ability to add custom fields but, they were firmly associated with each model. Visually the tool is pretty decent and the administrative and advanced end user side is quick. I taught myself the tool in a week after reading the entire help manual.

What do you dislike?

I disliked its lack of automatic joins as it required the customer to have a understanding of sql. For a techincal person like myself its easy and pretty straight forward. SO if you plan on using this tool and have an IS department generate things fo other teams like canned reports they run. It would be good.

Creating reports new as a end user was somewhat challenging. The options are not easily laid out Also I never had a great experience dealing with their tech support. Nothing bad, but not great either.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would suggest looking at Cognos before you spend any money on Izenda.

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

It was a third reporting tool we attempted to use for our legacy product. We wanted something that could deliver table, cross tab or list reports. Along with easy to build graphs.

For the most part it did this but, it required training and generally speaking it was a bit difficult for our end users to adopt this. 90% of them still relied on our two other original reporting methods built in house.

The online help made it easy and quick to get a functioning and demonstrable product. Additionally, the Izenda team was super responsive to any issues that my team and I encountered.

Also the introduction of change history for reports will be popular with our users. The Izenda support team have been really helpful and have a very good response time.

"Best in Class OEM Tool with Business Model as Greatest Differentiator "

What do you like best?

Izenda met all of the technical requirements we needed in a BI platform. The platform also met our business needs better than the other solutions we considered, especially tenant and user administration, visualizations, and report scheduling. The fact that they completely understood our business needs made the decision to use Izenda an easy one.

The solution is still quite early in its first year, however there are monthly updates to fix bugs and enhance features. The product continues to improve.

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

"Easy to approach, Excellent web reportwriting tool"

What do you like best?

The ability to create instant reports with minimal effort is wonderful. Izenda makes it easy for end users, who may normally eschew report writing, to create lists and graph reports. The way Izenda has allowed datasources to be linked and connected with ease is a breakthrough for end user reporting.

What do you dislike?

On the fields display, things are a bit too cryptic. Also need longer open edit areas for field display headers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Izenda fills an important need with casual, end users for quick reports and does so with the proper value and ROI.

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

In higher education, many end users are casual users of the system who are not IT people. This tool makes a leap for these people to being able to self create quick lists and graph reports without deep database and table join knowledge.

"Izenda allows seamless white label integration for non-technical users."

What do you like best?

Izenda allows seamless white label integration for non-technical users but also allows technical users to customize all areas to provide a powerful solution that matches their core solution. It pushes the reporting burden away from IT and into the hands of the user and allows for complex reporting in a simple to use UI experience,

What do you dislike?

The documentation whilst getting better still needs to be kept more up to date.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you setup a vanilla instance and get this working as a proof of concept and also use this as a benchmark before embarking on major development work and customizations but remember that it is very flexible. Think about the data and database, some of the perceived problems are actually in the data and the database and it's integrity and whilst Izenda can help it still needs to be pointed to stable data source(s)

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

Pushing the burden of report writing away from SSRS and developers and into the hands of end users is the future and Izenda delivers. I have customized Izenda across multiple clients and it has always been flexible to adapt, sometimes to very client specific requirements that other solutions just could not cope with.

What do you dislike?

The common controls are a bit dated I have been told they are being updated in futurue release

Recommendations to others considering the product

Strongly recommend a QA or Dev license to simulate customer experience.

"Fast flexible reporting system "

What do you like best?

Easy web interface. Powerful charting system and great email/export. By far the quickest reporting I have ever been able to deploy and have users able to edit/create their own reports.

What do you dislike?

Limited creation of formula fields sets. Cannot build charts on a calculated field. Restrictive formatting on base dashboard system.

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

Trend analysis, performance metrics on field employees. Plotting time, location and date of a series of events to improve outcomes. Tool for data validation and alerting of error data.

"BI in today's cloud market place"

What do you like best?

The people surrounding the product and its implementation. Second would be the functionality and ease of use..

What do you dislike?

Direct integration to more Big Data tools, I am sure it will come with time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Spend time to evaluate the cost performance as well as cost associated with training. We looked at over 20 vendors in an RFP and Izenda was and still is the best value for the Money

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

I am implementing Izenda with a second company for use as its customer facing dashboard there are a multitude of problems being solved to list on this review. Primarily cost and speed to market for a sophisticated dashboard. We searched the market prior to our selection

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

Our customers have asked for a reporting / dashboard product to perform analytics on the data collected by our forms product and on the utilization of the product itself. Izenda allows us to easily accomplish this.

"Perfect fit for our clients when wanting ad-hoc reporting and seamless integration into their apps"

What do you like best?

We are an independent consulting organization but we use Izenda on a lot of products when the client wants help with the following:

Reporting solution integrated with their current application so it looks and feels like current applications. No one even knows its the Izenda engine.

Integrated security model with application security. Izenda has great modeling for this

Impressive reports and dashboards that normal, everyday users can create and run

Reduce IT support time and report building

Great for use when dealing with segmented data by client/role/etc. Easy to protect data from various user types

What do you dislike?

For a data scientist looking to do regression analysis, Black-Scholes models, game theory analysis or any other deep statistical analysis there are other tools we would recommend. However, 90% of the time our clients want dashboards, self-service BI & reporting. Frequently they want it integrated into their security models and applications and have data protection concerns so it's a great choice. We do have clients that this isn't a fit for, but for most they love it.

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

Almost always it is providing better standard reporting with dashboard and self-service BI/reporting added on that is fully integrated into client applications. Depending on complexity, within a month you can see a lot of benefits and can have a fully integrated complete solution in 2-6 months.

"Move from detailing with reports - to designing a reporting system"

What do you like best?

As programmer I realize I can never create a useful reporting system able to handle the different permutations of how users want to view their data, using basic reporting tools. The answer to a new reporting request is almost always, add a field to a report or create a brand new report.

With Izenda I'm able to build a mature foundation, that users can quickly customize to their needs. Once permissions are layered in, I can use the same report and only show fields a specific user has access to.

With Izenda you quickly get out of the weeds, and concentrate on which aggregates are most useful to users and how should be taxonomy\hierarchies be organized.

What do you dislike?

There are a couple areas that Izenda requires additional work.

Time and Training - Izenda does a great job of putting the complexity of report specification in the users hands. Though that means users will have immense reporting power in their hands, they will need training and time with the tool to become truly proficient.

Scheduling - Izenda offers a basic scheduling system, but typically Izenda is being embedded seamlessly into an existing mature application. And the bar for new useful features are high, so a basic scheduling system is typically not enough.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get a free trial, devote a month to creating a POC, and then decide if Izenda is a right fit. Do you need something more capable, do you need something less capable, etc.?

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

Most of my clients are trying to offer their users an advanced ad hoc querying tool, that allow the users to modify, share, and create their own reports. This frees up my clients from dealing with and managing small reporting requests and puts the users in control of when, how often, and which changes are made to reports.

"Great ad-hoc reporting tool and great customer service from Izenda"

What do you like best?

Awesome customer service. The flexibility of the product let us provide a robust solution, yet keep it easy for user to use and report on the data very quickly. As a development partner, their support was outstanding.

What do you dislike?

The Forms product could be enhanced to be a more robust HTML editor. Our experience is that our customers use another HTML editor to write the Form and copy and paste into Forms editor.

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

We wanted to provide our customers with an easy-to-user reporting tool, that provided access to the data without having to be a DBA or report writing guru. Our implementation of Izenda has let us realize that vision.
