About Zoho Analytics

Zoho Analytics is a BI and analytics platform, available both on the cloud and on-premise, that helps small to large organizations get valuable insights from their business data. It allows users to easily create and share powerful reports in minutes with no IT help.

You can upload or synchronize data from spreadsheets, web or traditional applications, build powerful reports and dashboards in minutes with the easy drag-and-drop interface, and share reports and dashboards with key performance indicators.

Zoho Analytics can be used across various functional areas and by a wide range of users for their reporting and analytics needs.

Key benefits of Zoho Analytics

1. 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).

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

4. 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.

5. 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.

6. 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.

Giving our executives real-time access to the numbers that matter. Having that available means we make better decisions, respond faster to threats and opportunities and grow our business quicker.

Pros

The endless reports that are possible. I can connect different data sources and then get beautiful, real time reports on all devices that capture our business at a glance.

Cons

The tool can need coding ability or a developer to get some reports you need. A more intuitive way of doing this would be appreciated for the non-coder.

Powerful analytics, enterprise features, with a learning curve

Reviewed on 2020-08-29

Overall, if you need a data display solution that can hook up to nearly anything, and is robust enough to grow with you, Zoho Analytics may be perfect. The charts and dashboards are gorgeous, and with a little time, you can really come up with some cool dashboards to display almost any data. The learning curve is a bit heavy at first, but it's worth the time invested.

Pros

Zoho Analytics can virtually do anything. If you know what you are doing, there really isn't much you can't show in terms of data. Whether you need simple website data, PPC ad data, or data from your remote database, Zoho Analytics can do it. And I love how beautiful the reports are!

Also, it is SUPER flexible. The ability to have live dashboards that users can drill down into the info is just excellent, and it runs like butter.

Cons

If you need something that isn't a popular service to be integrated, it can be a little difficult. You can hook Zoho Analytics to almost anything, but it can take a little development knowledge for the more advanced tasks.

Also, it's a little convoluted in how reports are set up vs dashboards vs individual graphs, etc. Figuring out how it all works together, and keeping it all organized, takes a bit of time to master.

Beware - Zoho Preys on Smaller Companies with Weak IT Controls

Reviewed on 2020-06-01

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!

Overall, great experience with Analytics ! We connect and centralize several data sources and apps to create reports for the Marketing department (SaaS application) - we use various types of sources and technos to enable sync (native, SQL on cloud, webhooks) and gather them to create 5 dashboards that encompass the whole teams activités and performance. In itself, it's a good application, but within the Zoho One Suite, and as part of the overall pricing, it's clearly underpriced for what it does! Big fan of the Zoho Suite

Pros

The fact it's easy to set up and organize, with powerful report / graph / dashboard creation features. Connect your sources, check, and start building reports. It can be as simple as this ! And the dashboard builders' easy drag and drop interface does a great work. More than efficient, you can even build good looking, stylish ones if you have a little time and an eye for design :)

Cons

Some editing features while manually modifying Tables that are already imported. Granted, when you sync with external data sources, you shouldn't do this much, but if it happens you have to manually edit a table, it can be quite tedious.
