The ability to apply granular security down to the dimension level. Ease of connection multiple datasources.
the internal formula engine for creating calculated measures on the client side is somewhat complicated.

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.
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.
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.
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.

We have used Tagrit for Executive, Director and Finance KPI dashboards. Works very well and provides up-to-date KPI reporting across 200 companies. Drill down allows for detailed analysis once a issue is question is identified. We have it so that the reporting is company wide but can be drilled down to a very granular level for investigations or for additional information
Excellent BI visualization tool
Easy to create new reports
Performance of reporting tool is good
Cost to extend use to a wide audience is prohibitive
Module based licensing can be a barrier to wider use

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

We have made such influential but "below the surface" data become visible, thus enabling us to make smarter decisions in the future and also make moves to fix issues or anomalies in the present. The company is incredible with their support and they have a great portal for customers to submit issues and even ideas in which are usually answered within the same day posted. The growth of the application's features has made this BI suite a force to be reckoned with!
The progressiveness and adaptability to grab and connect to today's ever advancing technology/data sources.
At first updating the users' end client software was a big task, but they have rectified this problem by supplying update EXEs and automatic update downloads.
