Active Database Software
This is a good framework to use if your project requires frequent database queries. The product is made for both complete amateurs and seasoned experts. Prompt, courteous, and expert assistance; any problems are addressed and fixed without delay. Relatively inexpensive Inadequate, if there are new people involved, delays due to a lack of documentation are likely, and issues with code completion may arise.

Mode is a clear category winner for how it easy it is to go from interactive analysis to professional quality reporting. You can easily do all your SQL and quite a bit of R/Python. If you want to quickly go from your database to simple charts, this is your pick. If you need to do heavier data modeling, scheduling jobs, or ML, you'll need something else, like Databricks. In my opinion, the quality of visualizations and some developer/analyst features make Databricks an unacceptable substitute.

  • Date ranges aren't always the most intuitive to set, strangely
  • Faster refresh rates would be ideal
  • Would love more dynamic mobile device integration (alerts, etc)

I have used Flutter to begin and with flutter you need learn a language called Dart which is not needed with AQB, which is the main reason for us to pick Active Query Builder as a choice over Flutter. AQB supports all the merchant SQL databases with native syntax support, query optimizations and more

We used both Qlik and Mode at our organization. The mode was used a quick analysis SQL tool while Qlik was our enterprise BI solution.
