SuiteAnalytics Documentation Summary

SuiteAnalytics tools include built-in ad hoc reporting, real-time dashboards, and ODBC access across NetSuite and all customizations. These business intelligence tools help you to identify issues, trends, and opportunities, and support instant drill-down to underlying records, for quick action. The following SuiteAnalytics documentation is available:


NetSuite dashboards provide a visual workspace that gives you instant access to the personalized data needed to make decisions and edit records. Dashboard content is displayed in dynamic data display windows called portlets. Some portlets provide direct access to raw data, and others display data that has been synthesized into critical business metrics, such as key performance indicators (KPIs), performance scorecards, trend graphs, and report snapshots. Other portlets enable the display of data from website RSS feeds. See Dashboards.


Create highly customizable datasets and workbooks that leverage the analytics data source. In the dataset, define your workbook source data by selecting record types, fields, and criteria for further analysis in a workbook. In the workbook, visualize and analyze your data using tables, pivot tables, and charts. Visualizations in a workbook can all be based on different datasets. You can author your datasets and workbooks using field data from multiple record types, including custom record types. You can also create and add fields with dynamically calculated values, and easily view data for fields with parent-child relationships. See Workbook.


NetSuite provides a variety of search tools that you can use to retrieve real-time data from your account. You can search for a single record by keywords, return a set of records that match filters you define, customize the display of search results, export results to other applications, email results to other users, and save search definitions for reuse. See Search.


NetSuite supports reporting capabilities that you can use to retrieve, present, and analyze real-time business results. You can run prebuilt reports as is, or modify them by setting per-user preferences, selecting per-report viewing options, or defining custom reports in the Report Builder or Financial Report Builder. See Reports.


The SuiteAnalytics Connect Service enables your business to archive, analyze, and report on its data using a third-party tool or custom-built application. NetSuite supports the use of ODBC, JDBC, and ADO.NET drivers to connect with NetSuite from any device running on a Windows, Linux, or OS X operating system. You can use Microsoft® Excel, BIRST, Adaptive, or any other compatible application to work with the Connect Service. See Connect.

After you transfer your data to the Analytics Warehouse, you can combine your NetSuite data, historical data, and data from other sources, to analyze all of your data with a wider assortment of visualizations.
