We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Mobility is the most valuable feature for us. All employees can access it from anywhere. It is a big advantage for us.""It's great for consolidation and creating one source of truth.""The solution can scale.""It's really an enterprise solution. It has a dashboard, like standard dashboarding functionality. It also has reporting capabilities for producing pixel-perfect reports, bursting large volumes of a document if you need to. It has interactive data discovery functionality, which you would use to explore your data, bring your own data, and merge it with maybe the data from an enterprise data warehouse to get new insights from the pre-existing data. It has machine learning embedded in the solution. If you're new to machine learning, it's a really good way to get into it, because it's all within this platform, and it's really easy to use.""This is a stable and scalable solution.""The product is easily customized.""The specific capability I find important in Oracle Analytics Cloud is that it allows the basic user to easily drag and drop data. I also like that the solution allows the user to decide what to measure and what to see in the reports.""The features that I find to be the most valuable are the BAS (Business Analytics), the Narrate feature, and the auto-visualization."

"The way Salesforce Einstein Analytics is structured in terms of the work assignments and the user profile is very good.""We have found the scalability to be very good.""Transparency is the most valuable feature of this solution.""It's scalable.""Tableau CRM is a very capable solution. It is easy to use, user-friendly, and integrates well.""The solution scales extremely well.""The most valuable features of Salesforce Einstein Analytics are the flexibility around the deployment, overall capabilities, user-friendliness, and interactiveness with the tools that came built with it."

Cons
"Sharing dataflows is not possible at this time, and the custom chart functionality is not available.""The solution could be more flexible.""At this time, dataflows cannot be shared, but I think that this should be enhanced.""As with most BI tools, the visualizations can be made much nicer. Currently, it has standard visualizations. They've been adding new visualizations, but we see animated visualizations from other vendors. It would be nice to have similar visualizations, such as the swarming visualizations, which are fairly new and very popular at the moment. I haven't seen that with Oracle. That would be nice.""Oracle Analytics Cloud is lacking in charts. They should add more charts to it.""Its machine learning and visualization capabilities can be improved. There should be more visualization options.""The interfaces could be improved and some in-memory operations could be built in.""This solution could be more adaptable in its application."

"They have a lot of opportunity to improve BI tools. With Einstein Analytics, we have a very minimal scope.""All of the timesheets and appraisal management I have not been happy with. There should be some improvements. For example, as a management team, our managers do not have access to see a summary report, such as who is on leave today or how many hours each person logged in. You have to get into individual users and see. You cannot see a summary report, the reporting is missing. There should improve the reports.""Better pricing would make it available to more users and we would likely use it more broadly within the organization.""If a user leaves your organization, you shouldn't lose the visibility of all of the records.""If I could improve Tableau CRM I would make it as powerful as Tableau. Tableau CRM is more integrated and it's on the web, but it has less functionality. It is lacking functionality at this time.""I would advise others not to customize because they rolled out the newer versions, which are every six months. There had to be some significant testing and verification that happened. It is important to have a strong third-party provider that is very experienced. We used Deloitte, but we evaluated Accenture, KPMG, and IBM, but we decided on Deloitte and that was a good decision for us. Having a partner who has a center of excellence or experts that could give you a lot of the tips that they've learned could jumpstart your deployment and stick to the standards.""There are some offerings like Sales Cloud, Service Cloud, and Marketing Cloud that have very useful online learning options. There need to be more avenues for self-learning with this particular solution. That would be useful."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The price is reasonable; it's quite a bit lower than Tableau and Spotfire."
  • "I don't know the exact cost, but its pricing was good. Its pricing was competitive. I would rate it a three out of five in terms of pricing."

  • "Salesforce has a subscription-based licensing structure, where it's between $20 to $75 per month, per user."
  • "The biggest challenge we had was the cost and the licensing. We ended up getting an enterprise licensing agreement(ELA). That took a lot of negotiations and a lot of pressure. We were able to receive a good price for the community licensing they bundled Salesforce Einstein Analytics. They bundled a lot of capabilities with us with the ELA."
