We used DataDeck to give an Australian telco 360-degree visibility on their business. It was easy to combine and visualize key metrics from a central database, spreadsheet, and Google Analytics all on the one dashboard. We tried building such a reporting dashboard ourselves but it didn't look great. The management team really wanted something they could show investors without any further presentation work required. Some of Datadeck's on the fly calculation capabilities are limited but their support assures me that these are under development.
Consider exactly what you need. It's easy to get carried away with features, thousands of charts and reporting capabilities that you don't really need. A simpler solution is often the best solution.
The ease of use. After our development team connected our database anyone inside our company was able query data and create reports with impact.
The report sharing functionality is limited. It would be good to have more control over permissions.
Better in app data calculations. We can overcome this by calculating such information in the spreadsheet or directly out of the database. However, it would be best if we could do all of this within DataDeck.
We wouldn't try to build our own in-house reporting dash. It requires too much development effort and the end result does not deliver the 'wow' factor. Also choosing a cloud reporting solution has allowed us to be more agile. Staff doesn't need our developers to create new reports - they do this themselves.
DataDeck makes it easy to visualize data and create reports with impact.
We handled most of the intergration and deployment ourselves. We only called upon Datadeck when we had a question or we were unsure of the best practices to employ.
