SplashBI is a business analytics platform designed to enhance data reporting by blending data from multiple sources. The platform offers more than 200 pre-built reports, dashboards, and data visualizations to provide users in any organizational role the ability to pull and analyze data with no assistance from IT.

SplashBI can be connected to a variety of cloud-based and on-premise data sources, including relational and non-relational databases, and third-party applications and services. Pre-checks, cleaning actions, and range of data transformations can be defined by users, and calculations can be run on inbound data from all sources. SplashBI’s self-service reporting enables ad hoc reporting in multiple formats, including PDF, HTML, Excel Pivot Table, and CSV, with no coding required, and reporting can also be automated based on user-defined schedules. The Excel add-in allows users to create, run, edit, and refresh reports directly from within Microsoft Excel, with formatting maintained whenever data is refreshed.

The drag-and-drop interface of the visual dashboard composer lets users create fully-customized dashboards, with support for company logos and different plotting colors and visual styles, or users can leverage the pre-configured layout options for a range of dashboard pages. Dashboard parameters can be changed at any time through the customizable floating parameter box, with changes automatically applied to all charts.

Use of Splash BI ay Las Vegas Valley Water District

Used Daily for 1+ year

Review Source: Capterra

Splash BI has enabled us to enable the business to get information, without delay, on a self serve basis with little IT involvement. The support is also extremely good. Both from the personal relationships that I have with individuals in the company, but also from a ticket perspective. They are always willing to jump on a Skype and investigate any issues that we have.

Pros

The software has allowed us to push much of the report writing - previously a burden to IT and requiring time delays to the business - out to the people that need the information. Although IT is still involved, it is nice to walk around different departments and see users running reports as well as developing reports. While the product was limited to IT and Finance up until recently, other areas of the business have now adopted the solution and requested training (that we have developed in house). Interestingly the growth in use of the product has been somewhat self propagating. As an example I had people in Fleet request a report from Finance which they loved and asked how they got it. When informed about Splash BI, they requested a demo - which Finance gave (!) - and now have requested training from IT.

Cons

The navigation is a little clunky although it seems a lot better in the latest release. We also typically encounter a number of bugs after an upgrade, reducing our desire to be early adopters.

Great replacement for Oracle Discoverer

Our reason for choosing Splash BI was because we were given a corporate deadline to replace Oracle Discoverer and Splash BI was the only product we evaluated that allowed us to achieve this. They supported us throughout the process and we achieved our deadline.

Pros

We migrated our entire Discoverer EUL (spanning 2 databases, 14 business areas, and 500+ reports) in about 3 months thanks to the migration utility built into Splash BI. Our 100 Discoverer users switched over to Splash BI without any disruption to the business.

Splash BI contains some superb features such as the ability to pivot data, schedule reports and email the output upon completion, view output directly in Excel, connect to multiple data sources and create reports based on SQL statements.

Great security features too, with access control at multiple levels such as Responsibility, User group and inidividual user, plus lots of Admin control. Good technical support too; bugs are patched quickly.

Cons

The main thing it lacks at the moment, according to our users, is conditional formatting.

The team we have worked with is very professional and willing to help in any way necessary.
When we have opened help desk tickets they have been reviewed and resolved in a timely manner. Some tickets were training issues and others needed patches applied. The team is always there to help support us.

Pros

I am not the most savvy report writer but SplashBi makes it so simple to create or edit a report. There is no need to site with a developer and hope they have your report done in a timely manner. You have the control to create your report in your time frame.
It was so easy to take our Reporter reports and move them into SplashBI along with any sql reports we run.

Cons

Joining tables is still something I struggle with. Mostly it is because I have not taken the time to learn it.

Moving from Discoverer to SplashBI for our reporting needs was one of the best decisions we made.

Pros

It's easy to use, allows greater flexibility than other tools, you can use the out-of-the-box seeded reports or create completely customized ones, plus I really like the ability to schedule reports that need complex schedules.

Cons

Formatting the reports with fonts is not so easy but workarounds are available for that. Experienced some scheduling bugs but the support team was prompt about offering solutions for that.

We are in the implementation phase and anticipate go live within a few weeks.
The import of our previous reports by EIS xPress tool was fairly smooth. We are
now having to assign responsibilities to reports within SplashBi, and that is taking
some development.

Pros

Like the "Layout" feature where you can set the home page to display the reports that you have edited, recently submitted and add favorites. This gives the user easy access to those reports that are frequently run.

Cons

The report creation and modification is a little difficult for the mere user with little to no
technical knowledge.
