Birst Enterprise Cloud

Embedded Visualizations and Dashboards with enterprise scale

The solution meets or exceeds what was sold during the sales process. Birst would like you to purchase implementation services from one of their partners. We did not and there were some difficult things to work through, but we made it.

Birst Enterprise Cloud

Easy to use.

The product is easy to use and well integrate with NetSute to pull data from NetSuite to Birst.

Implementation is not easy but creating reports and other were harder

BIRST consultant referred us to Cervello after implementation. That was pretty good that they would recommend a suitable vendor

Birst Platform

Probably good for mid & small sized companies but struggles with big BI environments

We've been working with the tool for one year now and our impression is that it lacks some functionality that any top Enterprise class BI tool should have: - Data Governance: We've found some limitations when trying to build a common Birst repository with master data to then share it across different child spaces (load only once - reuse many times). There is a lack of documentation about how to work in such scenarios. - ETL: Several third party tools had to be used to cover missing ETL capabilities (Python, batch files, Infra Cloud) - Administration: Space and user management still requires a lot of scripting making it hard to administer.

Product and Trainings needs maturity

We're suffering several issues about performance and reports replication from previous tool has not the maturity enough to provide all the features that the previous tool provide However, Visualizer is very easy to use for final users.

Can be used for reporting but not as a data integration tool

After some time of usage we perceive a lack of maturity from the tool, things I would assume available as they are in other BI tools are not available in this case. We thought the tool could take care of the data integration (ETL) and the reporting tasks in a scalable/robust/maintainable way but finally noticed that the tool is not built for data integration purposes.

Implementation took a bit longer than we hoped for, but overall quality was excellent

We've had a good experience with Birst. They are responsive to our needs, and their technology does almost exactly what we need it to do.

Birst Platform

Good product but performance not great and difficult to find people with the skillset.

Acceptable.

Birst Platform

Not a 'one size fits all' BI solution, but useful in certain areas and still evolving.

We were trying to find one offering that straddled exploratory BI/visualization/dashboards and moderate enterprise reporting needs. We set out to replace one of the well-known enterprise reporting solutions and it has not been easy for us. Birst is evolving rapidly. It's not totally baked, but their release velocity is high and they are making progress. This puts us on a bit of an upgrade treadmill because we have to run on-premise due to data confidentiality. That said, we're starting to doubt whether it can meet our needs for regular reporting. It seems fine for dashboards. Business users still prefer Tableau for data exploration.

Although we're only recently gone live, Birst has worked well and is easy to develop and use.

The product has worked well. We've been able to begin developing with it pretty quickly. The data interface has worked well. The company has been good to work with.
