Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"We can easily do our own customizations.""I can't name the features the way the Knowage community calls them because I still don't know the lingo. However, I can describe them. I like the ability to join more than one report, set all fields on one end, and replicate that on the other reports. I like that a lot. I think it's one of the features that got me using Knowage. They have tables, and I like that too. They took SQL scripts and many other scripts and enabled them to even correlate with Python. That's also one of the best things about Knowage. You could also decide to get information per user role, and this is also a feature that I like in Knowage."

"You can export almost anything whether it's graphics or data."

Cons
"The only challenge here is that it's a Java-based platform. It requires very high technical skills.""It would be better if more resources were available to help us learn how to use it. I wanted to use Knowage for a more extended period, but learning materials around the product were not really available and were not really straightforward. I've also seen inconsistencies between versions. For example, under the tools, especially in the cockpit, the way you create reports is now different. You will also find some configurations within a particular state, like a line chart, which differs from version to version. I think consistency is an essential feature in a product, especially for business intelligence products."

    Top Answer: 
    I think the only limitation in the solution is the graphics which could be improved. I think the graphics are better in other tools.
    Top Answer: 
    I have a lot of use cases for this solution, but my main use is for key performance indicators. We use embedded BI in NetSuite for difficult reports.
