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.

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.

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.

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.

Birst team worked well with us to address our HIPPA concerns and recommended implementation partners for us. Our small scope project was turned around in just 10 weeks by the implementation partner, so that we could deliver value quickly.
