Pyramid Analytics tools and the version history

Recently, we see a stable evolution when it comes to BI & Analytics functionality and support for operating systems and connectivity.

We reviewed Pyramid Analytics’s latest updates of its complete product portfolio. Below you can see the successive versions of all the ones known to us BI & Analytics products of Pyramid Analytics:

  • Pyramid Analytics: 2024

Behind each product, we mention the version numbers, the most recent versions are mentioned first.

What are the licensing costs of Pyramid Decision Intelligence Platform, Pyramid Data Science Workbench, and Pyramid Smart Insights?

In many cases, it can be difficult to determine the licensing costs of Pyramid Analytics because it depends on the country, the number of users (also consider the amount of CPUs for server versions), the connectors to data sources, and at what point in the year you request a quote. If you do this a few weeks before the end of Pyramid Analytics’s fiscal quarter, you may be in for a decent discount. As part of a cloud-first strategy, it makes sense to run the software in the cloud. You then only pay for what you use. The purchase cost of Pyramid Decision Intelligence Platform, Pyramid Data Science Workbench, and Pyramid Smart Insights may not be the most important costs, but maintenance and support of course do limit your future investment scope.

In our study, we see that Pyramid Analytics in the field of BI & Analytics software has several specific features which may be the deciding factor in purchasing. This makes Pyramid Analytics more or less unique: tabular data models, story boards, doughnut charts, Azure Analysis Services, and live connection.
