Altair Engineering, Inc.
WPS Analytics allowed our company's business users to keep using their existing programs while getting similar results with much less learning time. It's a great accomplishment when software for business users is changed—excellent relationships with providers and other salespeople. As a SAS user, I needed an interpreter for the SAS language, and WPS has more packages and a lower price than any other company I could find, so I decided to go with
it.

We did not use the official Kibana support. Documentation was easy enough to follow.

I use a lot of data discovery and visualization tools at workstations to help me gain deep insights into data. WPS Analytics doesn't vary much from all the DVD tools that I have listed, I always go for the best.

Kibana has a better usability experience, the core features I was using existed in all of them. I liked more in Kibana how you can easily create dashboards, charts, and reports without the need to be a tech person.
