Anaconda

Anaconda is excellent if all you do is data science. If you are already a python developer, then it may be more frustrating having multiple ways to manage your distribution and your packages. It has very clear use cases and makes starting off in data science much easier than figuring out all you'd need to install in Vanilla Python.

Google Data Studio

Google Data Studio allows access to very visual, easy-to-understand dashboards that help our colleagues better manage their resources and make decisions. Also, it fosters the opportunity to create new metrics and dimensions from the original data by applying from mathematical calculations to an extremely useful list of functions.

Pros

Anaconda

  • Clear install story. There are a lot of ways to install python. There's only one way to install anaconda. This makes teaching and standardizing much easier.
  • Batteries included. It's easy to install things in python, but anaconda ships with most of what you need out of the box. This helps with standardization and reproducibility.
  • Good integrations with Jupyter and other visual tools. Jupyter is really convenient when learning various python packages. Anaconda makes these tools easy to launch and to use.

Google Data Studio

  • Pre-loaded Report Templates: Without a data visualization experience/training it's most likely difficult to set up the desired dashboard you envision. Fortunately, Google Data Studio offers pre-loaded reports for the most common data source connections. These common connections include: Google Ads, Firebase, Google Search Console, Google Analytics, and more. They save a lot of time and are easy to substitute data variables.
  • Being a remote company, it can be difficult to share in real-time... not with Google Data Studio. If our team is viewing the data on a call, we are able to update the dashboard in real-time and everyone is able to see the changes made without refreshing. Subsequently, as one user is able to change data parameters (dates, labels, etc) and the rest viewing the data are able to follow along.
  • It can be difficult to get ideas how you should prepare your data - which KPIs should I include? In what order? Should I use a pie graph or bar chart? Thanks to Featured Data Studio reports I'm able to look at shared reports generated by others to get ideas on how to set up similar data.

Cons

Anaconda

  • Easier migration to cloud sharing

Google Data Studio

  • The integration with the data is very limited to Google products, only the connection with Google Analytics. That is very basic.
  • It does not offer the option to print or download directly.

It's really good at data processing, but needs to grow more in publishing in a way that a non-programmer can interact with. It also introduces confusion for programmers that are familiar with normal Python processes which are slightly different in Anaconda such as virtualenvs.

It's really good at installing and getting started. It's less usable and configurable after that. If you stay in the ecosystem, and don't know how to Python any other way - it works really well.

Alternatives Considered

Anaconda

Other systems might be easier to set-up but Anaconda is a fairly flexible analytics toolkit. It can be configured in a way that truly matches the way in which your business or analytics department works. Built on top of lots of open source projects so things aren't siloed and you can avoid vendor lock-in.

Google Data Studio

Google Data Studio provides basic functionalities for visualizing data and creating simple reports, but it certainly does not provide the advanced visualizations and features that Tableau and Power BI offer. Moreover, Tableau offers built-in advanced functions and data calculations which come in very handy at times. Data Studio also supports some functions but they are very limited and not as extensive as Tableau.

Return on Investment

Anaconda

  • Extremely quick turnaround time to set up data science experiments
  • Reduction of troubleshooting time when deploying new packages and dependencies
  • Low risk environment due to the community edition
Daniel Blazquez profile photo

Google Data Studio

  • Not much at the moment. The tool helps save some hours of work. It remains to be seen the positive impact of the reports sent to clients, which we are using recently
