Aginity

Overall I like Aginity for what it has to offer right now. I also use SAS on a daily basis, and whenever I need to create scripts for flexible and repeatable automation processes, I go to SAS for its macro facilities. To me, Aginity works very well for quick data research, but other programs such as SAS are more suited for robust analysis involving complicated coding.

Google Charts

Google Charts is a useful program when trying to incorporate data and plots into web pages. It is easy to use for those with basic computer and coding skills. However, for advanced plots and high-level statistics, it does not offer the power to get the job done.

Pros

  • Query auto-completion

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.

  • You can't use this tool isolated. At least was not working for me.
  • I sometimes don't like the look and feel. This happens with Google products in general. They look too modern and sometimes you need to put more formal stuff and might not be the best.

At this point, only our IT department (that develops the Dashboard) is developing with it. We have thousands of users though.

Alternatives Considered

Like all of the other various SQL querying tools that I have used, the Aginity Workbench for RedShift has a free community version. Although unlike many of the other tools that I have used, Aginity feels like a tool that I would be willing to pay for. It is feature rich and stable.

A Datasource is a web service that supports the Chart Tools Datasource protocol. You can send a SQL query to a Datasource, and in response you will receive a DataTable populated with the appropriate information. Some examples of Datasources include Google Spreadsheets, Google Fusion Tables, and SalesForce.

Return on Investment

  • Since the tool is free it doesn't take much to get a positive ROI.
  • Since RedShift is a PostgreSQL derivative, tools designed for that DB can be used to access RedShift. However, it is much nicer to have a tool that is RedShift aware and understands the slight differences.
  • Query auto-completion makes writing queries much quicker and less error prone.
  • The database management features are a nice plus that many comparable tools for RedShift and other databases don't provide.

  • Better service
  • Improving the efficiency of the products from the data analysis
