Many users have noted that Dimensional Insight is not especially adept at analyzing and handling expecially large amoutns of information, specially unstructured data. As a result, users employing Diver for analytics of huge data sets might run into issues.

The Diver Solution is a very broad-based tool, so users with very specific needs in certain areas might be better serviced with a niche vendor.
