Pros: What I like most about Targit is that it gathers data that would normally take hours to collect manually, and displays it in any way that the user deems useful.

Cons: The only thing I didn't like about using Targit was in designing Reports or Dashboards, there was a good bit of manipulation required to attractively arrange my visual objects.

Love working with the Targit software and people!

Comments: I have enjoyed working with Ulrik and his team over the past 7 or 8 years. They have always been a great vendor and resource.

Pros: I like the ease of use of the product. it is fairly intuitive to use. It comes at a very good price point compared to other BI reporting solutions.

Cons: I don't like the fact that upgrades are so painful. The upgrades require a significant amount of effort and time. It would be nice if these upgrades had an easier transition to upgrades.

Comments: The Targit customer service, training, and technical team are very helpful and responsive. The product continues to improve.

Pros: From a value perspective, you will not find a better performing tool for the $$$. Our dashboard users can quickly view information and drill for more detail through a web client and our power users can generate insightful analysis quickly that can easily be presented via dashboards or PDF slides. Once the initial implementation is complete, the cost to support is negligible.

Cons: The biggest drawback of Targit ¿ really the same for all BI platforms ¿ it is not Excel. If you have data integrity problems, you have to address it in the source system.

Pros: The ease of use and how quickly the data loads are the main selling points. The ability to link crosstabs and toggle between reports is also extremely useful.

Cons: Building custom Calculations and Criteria are complex. Formatting of reports could also be made easier.

Pros: Targit is extremely easy for end users. Generally I can get most users competently doing ad hoc analysis work in Targit with just a few hours of training. Visualization tools good. Dynamic time functionality is an absolute must have for any business.

Cons: Some of the ability to get creative with the dashboards are a bit limited. Small issue however since we generally keep it simple anyway.

Comments: When I show Targit to users, they're wowed instantly by its usefulness. The ability to click on an element of one object to dynamically filter other objects on a page allows me to build tremendously useful reports that I could not do with any of the other applications that we evaluated. The degree of control you have over who sees what information is as granular as you could want, yet the interface for maintaining these controls is incredibly simple and easy to use. We've heard nothing but good things from our users, and more people ask for a license all the time.

Pros: The breadth of data sources it can use is impressive. The software is super fast and easy to use. It's easy to train new users and to manage who sees what information. Building a new report and disseminating it will frequently take me less than 10 minutes compared to at least an hour using SQL and Excel. The latest version (2017) has some new charts and a much cleaner interface than the 2015 version.

Cons: Some of the add-ons cost more than I think they should, and some ought to just be included with the software IMO. There are a couple quirks about how data labels are displayed in charts, but it affects a small percentage of cases and is probably only noticed by a handful of people. Building certain types of objects and reports is a little more cumbersome or counter-intuitive than I'd like, but not so much so that I won't use them because it doesn't change the experience for the end user.

Recommendations to other buyers: Spend as much time scoping out your requirements as possible. There were certain fields and tables we should have brought in to the solution during implementation, and while it's always possible to add them in after the fact, it's just easier to do during implementation. My other recommendation is that our approach during launch was not to convert all of our existing Excel reports to Targit (instead we chose to mostly focus on new reports), but in hindsight I don't think that was the best idea because it keeps employees in this state where they have to bounce back and forth between Targit and Excel for their reports. It would be best if employees could just stay inside Targit.

Comments: Incredible customer service support. It is second to none. I use this for my small business and it is excellent. It was a little tricky at first understanding how the input data needs to be entered. But after that the dashboards couldn't be easier or more useful!

Pros: Customer support helped me set up my dashboards

Cons: None

Comments: Targit creates reports with ease. Dashboard /storyboards are a great tool. However they have included a Webserver (the Touchserver) that is not stable. If you want a iPad/SmartTV to show a Dashboards 24x7 without user interference, forget it. Multiple times a day you need to manually refresh. Customer support could not find anything (or was not willing to find anything) and suggested to work with PC and a native Targit client. That works however the costs are greater and there is an extra component which I really do not need.

Pros: Good reporting, anyone who understands the data can create something usefull

Cons: Touchserver is a dreadfull thing, either stop selling it or fix it

Recommendations to other buyers: Take a good hard look, there are lots of other products on the market

Pros: The product allows an organization's users to easily get familiar how BI Analytics plays a vital role for their company. Helps standardize the reporting needs within an organization and effectively become a more data-driven company. The product is created to try to remove unnecessary complexity that other BI tool providers forget about.

Cons: Knowing what we know now we just regret not getting the product sooner.

Recommendations to other buyers: Ask all the necessary question you can think of to TARGIT, ask for references that they are willing to furnish. They will demo and schedule a "Proof of Concept" to see the immediate value your company can receive from using the product. Their entire Team is committed to helping you succeed with the use of their product as well as honestly interested in the users feedback to make the product better and more efficient to continue providing the value.

TARGIT has proven to be a very effective tool for our leadership team.

Pros: The drag and drop data points is a very easy way to quickly build a report from scratch. Our group also uses the scheduling function a lot to set up daily or weekly reports.

Cons: Building dashboards is a bit cumbersome and TARGIT lacks many of the charts of graphs you typically see in MS Excel.

Recommendations to other buyers: Think of the most least technical resources on staff, in our case it was the sales department, and imagine that group attempting to build or quickly review reports. Your BA tool can have all the best features but if it's not easy to use you're just wasting your money.

Pros: Once you know it, it can be very helpful at providing data quickly.

Cons: It's not intuitive, like Microsoft. Your first few clicks seemingly are never right. Moreover, you are at risk of making costly mistakes and loosing work easily.

Recommendations to other buyers: Train a few power users to be super users for the rest. The power users then can create reports for the population.

Pros: It's great BI software for quick, easy-to-develop reports and dashboards. It's a stable and reliable platform. The ability to schedule auto-emailed reports is a great feature.

Cons: The advanced calculations are difficult to use. The graphs are too basic. There's not enough interaction with other Microsoft applications and not enough custom tools for reports design.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you plan on using small to medium sized reports (less than 500 lines), TARGIT is a fine application. If you are looking for an in-depth large metric board, then I would pass.
