Chartio (discontinued)

Chartio is a great tool for building presentable dashboards. It can export, you can add read-only access, and it has permissions levels by dashboard for users. There are other data analysis tools that help to analyze the data, but few allow for such a nice presentation

It feels like Digital art is exactly what it is designed for, it should be used as a versioning tool allowing someone to basically check out artwork, make changes, check it back in preventing anyone else from doing the same.It is not a general file share program, it is far too robust to limit it to just file sharing.

Pros

Chartio (discontinued)

  • Direct linkage to our databases. Abstracts away the visualization layer so we can focus on the data and the queries.
  • Host of graphs and tools that permits all types of data visualizations.
  • Haven't quite used this yet, but there is a new embedding feature that will be very helpful so that we can embed the charts into a company central dash.

Cumulus

  • Our clients (faculty/staff and students) number close to 50,000. Cumulus' online database allows us to share photos and place any restrictions we deem appropriate, like password protection or print permissions.
  • Cumulus' dashboard is really easy to navigate. There are two sections on the left rail (categories and filters), and approximately 10-40 photos per page, whichever you choose. There's a rollover function that enlarges the pic, and the tabs to download or compile is underneath.
  • Cumulus' search is pretty precise. Our photo data base is 300,000 photos deep, and it was once twice that amount, with many photos falling into the same categories.

Cons

Chartio (discontinued)

  • There is not a last full month date range option. You can still get the range that you need, but the dashboards will have to be manually updated to exclusively display one whole month.
  • When building a chart, the area which displays your tables and fields is finite. You can't adjust the size to make it easier to see. They do allow a mouse-over to see the entire name of your table/field, but I would prefer to adjust the width.
  • Once you modify a query in the Custom Query tab, there doesn't seem to be a way to go back to using the U.I.

  • Easier reporting
  • It should prevent drag and drop in the tree that would orphan linked files
  • More ways to search

Great customer support: You will receive an answer by email usually within 20-30 minutes. Not only that but our CSMs for Chartio go out of their way to help, they have even created charts for some of the less experienced users that wanted an example to work from. We have had nothing but great experiences with this team.

I really like using Chartio. I use it on a daily basis for pulling data from different sources and combining data (the explore tab was a great idea for this use). I think I would give it 8/10 because there needs to be more documentation or maybe blog posts about things people are doing with it. I only have my own ideas about what to do /how to graph things. I know there are some articles, but it would be awesome to have a section on the neat dashboards people are building or how they show data in different ways. Another complaint is how much time it takes to load. I know our databases aren't set up precisely for Chartio and I have been creating data stores. But the data stores have so many more limitations that adds a whole new layer of frustration. Love the product, keep up the good work and the fast fixes.

I use self learning materials. Pretty helpful. I find myself having to go back to the "drilldown" instructions though, and have a hard time finding hidden variables on a dashboard, so perhaps there is room for intuitive improvements (or maybe I'm just being lazy)

Alternatives Considered

Chartio (discontinued)

Chartio so far has been the easiest BI tool to setup and has also been the most affordable. There are some other, great, BI tools out there but they were a bit to heavy handed for what we needed. Also - despite the high cost per user in Chartio, the other tools were still more expensive.

We've used Cumulus through my five years here, and have gone through a pair of upgrades. Personally, I've used Dropbox to share photos, and I've considered Dropbox Business. Dropbox doesn't have nearly as much storage or as clean of a layout as Cumulus, and the upload process is much faster with Cumulus.

Chartio has worked well as our datawarehouse has rapidly expanded, and the usability/performance hasn't seemed to have suffered. What we haven't yet realized is additional savings from additional users. We have some dashboard needs for users who truly just view of a few charts, and the licensing structure hasn't yet been structured in a way that would support that type of approach...having 50 "core" licenses, and then potentially several hundred view only licenses for partners that would use the application infrequently.

  • This is not an incredibly expensive product/support
  • I have been able to prevent costly file recovery due to its internal backup system
  • We can see who accesses what files, internal or external
