SingularIT ETL Only Pricing Plans

What is the Northcraft Pricing Methodology?

Our goal is to help you build out a coherent, credible and comprehensive CIO Dashboard across Enterprise IT, represented in our SingularIT vision.  This can be done one step at a time, allowing you to gain support with stakeholders along the way in key sponsorship positions.  We understand that large organizations may be unwilling to take on the risk of a massive “boil the ocean”, single-phase implementation approach for information that is critical to executives and highly visible.  With that in mind, Northcraft provides a modular pricing approach that allows you to gain credibility one step, or subject matter area at a time within the supportive IT organization.  This is because all of the necessary questions around data quality, performance, scalability, integration, security must be addressed before there can be a necessary comfort level to achieve this vision.

What is an Analytical Application?

Unlike our ETL Only Solution, discussed below, a full Northcraft Analytics analytical application (or module, formerly called BI Application) is our complete, install-able solution comprised of pre-built, configurable ETL code (BIaaS vs. On-Premises), Connectors, Canned Microsoft SQL Database, Canned Multi-Dimensional Database, and 100s of packaged reports, dashboards and content for IT built on Microsoft PowerBI and Tableau for the most prevalent Enterprise Applications on the market, including SolarWinds, JIRA, ServiceNow, Microsoft SCCM, etc…

Can I Use The Power BI Quick Insights Feature?YesSSAS Cubes Don't Support Quick Insights, but our Packaged, Cleansed and Aggregated SQL Server Database Does.
Is there automatic data Refresh? *Requires the usage of either OneDrive or SharePoint.
Yes, DirectQuery can be used against our SQL Server database, with on-demand refresh. Or, for analysts working with our large Northcraft exports of clean data in excel or .csv format, the data is less timely, but still automated for OneDrive and SharePoint data sources.Everything in the clean data plan holds, but with the cubes, there is a centralized refresh that occurs every 15 minutes to one-hour, depending on configuration, but it is centrally administered.
Q & A Functionality Support for Natural Language Queries?Yes, all components support.
Yes for everything, except for the SSAS Cubes.
On-Demand Report User Data Refresh?Yes for reports based on the NCA SQL Data Warehouse (or Azure SQL Database & Synapse Analytics).Yes for everything except the SSAS cubes.
Advanced Data Governance and Cell-Based Security?Yes, but must be built for each report.
Yes, governed by the SSAS cubes with application across entire solution, along with cell based locking of data, selective data masking and much more.
Data MashupYes, but with much more effort.Server Side Data Mashup across multiple sources is pre-built in the SSAS cubes for common customer analyses.
Packaged SingularIT Content with over 1000 reports, managerial and executive dashboards for PowerBI, Tableau and Excel?No. While PowerBI and Tableau content are simple to build, it's still time consuming and much more difficult than working with SSAS cubes that have pre-built metadata, KPIs and joins.Yes, here's a popular example of the 1000+ pieces of content...
