The product is especially useful when you have real-time and/or time series data to analyze. If you have more mundane, simpler requirements, other products might do the job you need for less money (there are even some decent open source visualization tools you can find.) I know the product is very widely used in capital markets applications to monitor and analyze risk and price and volume changes; if you're working in that area, I don't think there's a better tool to use.

-Scenarios where Bizintel360 is appropriate
When a team needs to analyze fairly big data sets from multiple sources, without having a dedicated IT infrastructure (ETL etc.) and when the teams members have little or no knowledge of coding languages and data analysis algorithms.
-Scenarios where Bizintel360 is less appropriate
When conversion tracking is required is E-commerce data analysis scenarios
When 2-Factor authentication is required by security-aware clients.

Pros
Altair Engineering, Inc.
  • Creating a basic model to extract data from a report is very easy.
  • Advanced features like Calculated Fields and External Lookups allow you to augment the raw data.
  • You can create a "project" to automate the data extraction. Combined with Datapump (a separate DW app), you can fully automate the process once the raw report is generated.

Cons
Altair Engineering, Inc.
  • Recently, we had some major sticker-shock when we wanted to upgrade Data Pump. It is an exceptional product, but when the price jumped from $6,000 to over $60,000, it was impossible to get the funds approved internally for the upgrade.
  • We also paid for yearly maintenance contracts which included Professional Services, but rarely found those services beneficial. However, we did receive all software upgrades for Datapump as part of the contract which we found to be very beneficial. However, with the new pricing, that is not longer the case.

Even though we do not utilize it on a daily basis, I do hope my current company renews it's license. If not, I intend to purchase myself.

I think it is a great tool for teams that do not have access to a dedicated data analysis infrastructure, and/or do not have skilled human resources in that fields.
However there are E-commerce data analysis scenarios when Bizintel360 is not the best option (mainly conversion tracking), and the lack of 2-factor authentication might bring security issues with some clients.
Overall a very good tool for limited analysis scenarios.

The interface itself is very intuitive so we did not need much support when using it.
However the support team is very responsive and communicating by email was not an issue.

Datawatch is very good value of money compared to QlikView; QlikView is really more of a BI tool and has a lot of functions that I didn't need. Datawatch is very strong in the real-time area where Tableau, Panorama, and Qlik don't do very well. If you need to set up a visual monitoring dashboard, Datawatch is the best product I've seen for that. if you want to do a lot of in depth statistical analysis of large databases, Tableau is probably a good option.

Google BigQuery is unbeatable in terms of processing power: it leverages Google infrastructure to process data without any limitation of data size or number of data sources. However the user interface is not intuitive, and most people need to undergo some kind of training from Google to be able to use it properly.
Bizintel360 is less performant in terms of processing power, but provides a very intuitive dashboard and beginner friendly functionalities making it very accessible and quick to master.
