Key benefits of Zoho Analytics

1. AI-powered Data Preparation & Cleansing:
Zoho DataPrep (Powered by AI): Integrate, model, clean, prepare, enrich, and organize data easily inside Zoho Analytics. The feature is inbuilt within Zoho Analytics and launched as a stand alone product too.

2. No upfront cost
Traditional in-premises BI tools have a high upfront cost in the form of a perpetual license fee, and buying of separate hardware & software. Zoho Analytics being a BI software offered as a service, you pay as you go (affordable monthly subscriptions).

3. No hardware and software to maintain
Maintaining an on-premises BI tool would mean your IT department will have to maintain both the hardware and software. Going with Zoho Analytics, with the business intelligence platform being hosted, all the IT-related work is taken care by us.

4. Easy setup and fast Implementation
Having your own BI implementation will take months to set up. With Zoho Analytics, you just sign in, import or push your data from multiple sources and get to see auto-generated reports immediately. BI in SaaS mode saves much on set up and implementation time.

5. Easy to use
Zoho Analytics has a spreadsheet-like interface and users who are used to working with spreadsheets will find it easy to learn and use. Most of the report building functions are just drag-and-drop.

6. Accessible from anywhere - Zoho Analytics can be accessed from any computer using just a browser and internet connection. Typical in-premises solutions are accessible only within your company firewalls.

7. Highly collaborative
Sharing, collaboration and publishing are inbuilt in Zoho Analytics. Fine grained access control permissions mean that you have best control over the data and reports being shared.

8. Centralized data maintenance and data blending
Disparate legacy systems have data stored in their own silos. It becomes hard when you want reports connecting multiple systems. With Zoho Analytics, all data can be uploaded/pushed into a single data store, and reports made from across the data tables.

It is helping my team and my organization to create the dashboards and application under the limited budget. Apart from that, the UI and UX experience are apparently fantastic. Overall, a good tool with lots of amazing funtionalities.

Pros

The best thing about Zoho Analytics is that it is pretty easy to set up and use. Also, we can create the dashboards using this tool and customize them according to the needs of the user. We can easily integrate other third-party applications especially the Zoho software with this platform and sync the data between them quickly.

Cons

This tool has lots of limitations in its features and there must be some more flexibility to make this platform more competitive.

Beware - Zoho Preys on Smaller Companies with Weak IT Controls

Reviewed on 1/06/2020

Pros

Zoho Analytics was easy to set up and easy to implement. Even writing queries - albeit through a bit of a clunky interface - was pretty easy. I enjoyed being able to set this up and get the users running quickly.

Cons

Zoho decided to forge my e-mail address for all notifications from our analytics account. Their e-mails used to come from a Zoho notifications address. Now, they are sending e-mails - from their own servers - that purport to be from me. Naturally, my company's spam blocker bounces these.

Since new users must respond to one of these spoofed e-mails, I can no longer set up new users, at all. They're not caught in a spam trap. They are actually being returned by our server.

Zoho's one and only solution has been to demand that my company make a change to our DNS servers. Then, Zoho can send what appear to be legitimate e-mails on behalf of anyone at my company, at will. That's not acceptable and should not be required. If you want that as a convenience for your users, it works - with appropriate legal agreements in place. Plenty of companies do this with SPF and DKIM records for internally controlled servers.

For an external company to provide no other option (and not mention it until it was too late), this is a huge red flag. Zoho even provides instructions for how to make this change on GoDaddy. Be warned. You know nothing about their internal controls and yet you're giving them license to send e-mail on your behalf. AVOID!

We are using Zoho Analytics to create Dashboards and increase automation at our company. It is mainly a visualization tool, chosen because it is standardized whereas something like Excel often varies based on the user.

Pros

The software has numerous features to avail of, barring you take some time to explore the program and learn them. The graphics produced are clean and effective.

Cons

Some of the settings are cumbersome. I have been having trouble with widgets, and getting Dashboards to update/sync with graphs when their source data is changed. When you add a new filter, you have to reset all of the filters, which is a time-waster and annoying.
