All dealings with the Pyramid team have been timely and professional. They always make the resources necessary to answer our questions or to provide technical assitance available with a direct line of contact for the quickest possible response/resolution. A fantastic team that truly values the customer relationship and elevates the customer experience.
Understand your organizations specific requirements and ensure they remain the top priority throughout your evaluation and selection process. Be sure to engage your power users in the evaluation process and request a demo environment or proof of concept. Don't be swayed by flashy presentations, low cost options and/or big names!
Very flexible product with great features and functionality that is backed by a great team.

Installation was quite extensive as the implementation of Kerberos and SPN assignments were required for use, but was well worth the effort.
Ask for training early and often. Not just in practical/analytic use by the end -user, but administrative console training on installation, upgrades and configuration.
The ease of use with Microsoft's BI Suite.
The export functionality or print from the Story Board needs some more work. Some clients want a hard copy, and my choices are pdf or xps. I can export to Microsoft Office but why the extra step? Also the dashboard views are slow to render at first.
I do wish Pyramid would host more in person seminars, trainings, or events on-site as opposed to online. Webinars are great, but I get more complete information when interacting in person.
I honestly don't think we would do anything differently as this is one of the rare exception where the original decision (in this case, to go with Pyramid Analytics) was the correct choice.
Pyramid has been quick
As mentioned in the summary, the installation was extensive as we required Kerberos and SPN assignments. Otherwise, adoption has been fairly simple across the board as others quickly grasp the drag-and-click interface.
