See the big picture - Salesforce® reports allow you to see data that spans 2-3 entities at most. So, if you need to report across several entities, merge data from other Force.com applications or pull in data from other systems to get a complete view of your business, you will need to look elsewhere.
View information the way you want - if you need more interactivity so you can implement workflows that fit the way your business users work and think or if you want to present your information in the way that best fits your business processes, you will need to look elsewhere.
Provide additional business insight - if you want to calculate key performance indicators, weighted averages and other custom calculations, or if you want to display color-coded alerts to draw your business users' attention to areas of good or bad performance, you will need to look elsewhere.
Report across leads and contacts - Salesforce® creates a distinction between leads and contacts and if you want to produce a single report that spans the two, you will need to look elsewhere.
Harnessing the flexibility of DecisionPoint™ to your Salesforce® data will enable you to adapt quickly to new challenges facing your business. By ensuring you always have the right information to hand - from wherever it's sourced - your sales team and other stake holders across your organization can make informed decisions that will help you thrive and outperform your competitors.
