Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable feature of Pentaho is the Tableau report.""The initial setup is pretty straightforward.""We were able to install it without any assistance from tech support."

More Pentaho Business Analytics Pros →

"Tableau CRM is a very capable solution. It is easy to use, user-friendly, and integrates well.""The way Salesforce Einstein Analytics is structured in terms of the work assignments and the user profile is very good.""It is a comprehensive solution. It has everything in it. I can easily find what I need.""Transparency is the most valuable feature of this solution.""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.""We have found the scalability to be very good.""It's scalable."

Cons
"We did not achieve the ROI. The work delivered to users had lesser value than the subscription cost.""Another concern is that Pentaho is not customizable or interactive.""The repository should be improved."

More Pentaho Business Analytics Cons →

"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.""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.""Better pricing would make it available to more users and we would likely use it more broadly within the organization.""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.""If a user leaves your organization, you shouldn't lose the visibility of all of the records.""They can provide more end-user customizations. There should be the possibility for the end-users to change some elements in the interface. I have a way of doing my job. My colleague may have his own way of doing his job. If I ask for a change, it'll change for everyone. It'll be good to have some end-user personalizations. I can't see many in Salesforce right now.""They have a lot of opportunity to improve BI tools. With Einstein Analytics, we have a very minimal scope.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We were lucky enough to find a Pentaho OEM partner who offered a data warehouse model and the ETL software for about 60K SGD per year."
  • More Pentaho Business Analytics Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "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."
