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.

eMite is well suited for small to mid scale companies. Their goal has been to aggregate data from every source and provide personalized views for both business and IT, with a presentation layer that is truly end user oriented, since the beginning. With my experience, I strongly believe that it is not very well suited for large companies.

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.

  • With so much data in one dashboard, sometimes it can be overwhelming to miss out on what you were look at in first place.
  • Wish this solution had some alerting system. For example, a beep sent out from eMite when a call hits the queue.
  • Interactive Data Visualization needs to be implemented.

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.

Support for eMite so has far has been excellent. Most of the tickets are resolved the same day. I have always seen their SLAs staying intact even for a complex situations let alone bugs that are raised to development teams. So, I never had any bad day with eMite support. They were always on dot.

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.

eMite cuts down all the manual part[s] of getting the data and organizing [it]. This happens in the abstract layer that keeps the user in the no worry one. eMite becomes part of the solution itself rather an external application that receives data from the solution. KPI and some other complex calculations are taken care of by this wonderful analytics tool.
