Driver Platform At A Glance

Good: Data integration capability in a single view, easier data discovery tools, fast insights.
Bad: Not adept in handling and analyzing large amounts of data, very broad-based software (not ideal for users looking for niche solutions).
Bottom Line: Its Diver Solution” includes time-sensitive data integration in a single view, helping users deploy role-based BI throughout their businesses.

Product Overview

Dimensional Insight’s Diver Solution provides the unique flexibility needed to implement business intelligence on a role-by-role basis across an organization. Rich data visualization, significant data integration capabilities, and a wide variety of data access options empower users of all skill levels to employ these tools and gain insights.

One of the most notable features of the product is its ability to provide data integration in a single view, at the right time. Diver data discovery tools gather data from multiple sources and transform it into a data model. Diver’s technology processes the data as this is happening, meaning that insights for analysis and reporting are already prepared. By eliminating data hierarchies and other complex barriers, Diver simplifies and cheapens the discovery process, as there is no need to spend additional resources on a data warehouse and associated licensing fees.

Another feature is the speed at which insights are drawn.

Implementation/Integration

Dimensional Insights employs consultants to help with services, such as remote support and implementation, with the goal of shorter implementations.

Customer Service & Support

Dimensional Insight prides itself on the simplicity of the setup and maintenance of the Diver Solution, and it’s staff is available to support issues that arise.

Phone representatives are available to both domestic and international clients from 7:00AM to 5:00PM Central Standard Time.

Online, users can log into a Customer section to access more in-depth materials. Dimensional Insight also offers comprehensive education services to users through numerous classes and tutorials that are offered both in person and online.

Shortcomings

Many users have noted that Dimensional Insight is not especially adept at analyzing and handling especially large amounts of information, specially unstructured data. As a result, users employing Diver for analytics of huge data sets might run into issues.

The Diver Solution is a very broad-based tool, so users with very specific needs in certain areas might be better serviced with a niche vendor.
