How have other bootstrappers addressed the need for reporting / BI in data driven B2B Saas apps?
- I tried writing something myself and failed - am an average
- I bought cheapie reporting tools online like myDBR,Scriptcase, mysqlreports and more but none of them do what I need even with customisation
- I went looking for freelancers and am now on my 5th attempt to get something which works (and it doesn’t!) - have tried UK, US and India. Paying in the mid $x,xxx range and still not getting there and it is really peeing me off now
Have looked into BI suites like Pentaho and Jaspersoft etc but for multi tenancy (i.e. each client can login and run their reports) you need their enterprise versions and pricing is $20k and above so way out of my range.
I am wasting some much time and effort over something which “should” be pretty damned simple - how have others managed this?
