Aginity

Aginity is well suited for writing ad-hoc queries and data analysis, having all of the features that data analysts come to expect in a database querying tool. Aginity is also great for basic operation and management allowing an engineer or DBA to store multiple databases and credentials, see how tables are distributed or sorted, and see table sizes and row counts. However, for more advanced database management another tool or the RedShift console is still required

GoodData

GoodData can easily integrate with cloud-based data sources such as Salesforce.com, Adobe Marketing Cloud, Magento, and various other CRM or analytics platforms. It also integrates with databases, protocols, and structured and unstructured data sources. So a friend of mine is gonna be likely using these data sources so Gooddata platform seems a good option to integrate analytics services and reporting tools

  • The platform provides a very robust data infrastructure and business intelligence tools to support the data engineers and analysts. It also has a very capable and user friendly visualization/reporting interface for the end user.
  • It is an excellent analytics platform for beginners as well. The resources available online are in good number and learning guides are easy to understand.
  • Single-Sign-in functionality of GoodData allows integration with other enterprise platforms very easily.
  • GoodData also provides excellent implementation consulting services and post-implementation customer service.

Cons

  • It would be helpful if the table size report could make it more obvious which tables need to be vacuumed. You can figure it out with the report, but can't just glance down a list.
  • Error message windows often auto close before you can read them leaving me hovering my finger over the print screen trying to capture them.
  • The auto-complete feature is a bit finicky. Many common scenarios which happen while writing a query by hand such as an unclosed parenthesis can cause the auto-complete not to trigger.

  • Dynamic/self-updating charts embed would be useful.
  • Public access URL to dashboards for sharing.

GoodData is a great partner of Zendesk and I will continue to use both for as long as I can see into the future :)

Each graph/report is defined on the dashboard, which makes it easier to understand what you're analyzing. Another simple example - we changed the standard metric of Region by User to our Region by Account in less than 10 minutes

Alternatives Considered

I use Aginity extensively for quick data research. Examples include figuring out what the table structure look like, how the data looks like, quick 100 record sample selection, creating a DDL with a list of the column names for further manipulation and analysis. However, for more complicated analysis, or processes that involve multiple steps, including the creation of temporary or permanent tables, I refer to SAS. Especially since SAS allows me to implement macro variables and programs, to automate and optimize repeatable processes.

I appreciate the easy to learn GoodData interface and wealth of documentation and forum support that I had never gotten with other analytic platforms!

Return on Investment

  • I think Aginity really allows us to quickly dive into the data, by providing easy and quick access to our database. This allowed us to solve our business problems on an efficient and timely manner. But since it is not a critical component of our department, (a lot of people also use Toad for the same thing, since Netezza is retiring soon, and Aginity, which belongs to IBM, has had legal issues, and is no longer available to new hires of our department. It is sort of our legacy software.)

  • There is no real ROI on BI solution. Sadly.
