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

Google Charts

Anyone looking for a free, easy to use spreadsheet software should look no further. Google Charts is great for casual users, personal use, or businesses with spreadsheet needs that don't have office. If you're a heady user, run macros, use Office365 already, or want to bounce between web and desktop clients I'd consider excel.

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.

Google Charts

  • Google Charts help create trendline and stacked column charts to show case growth and new customer lift. As well as, they help visualize customer acquisition broken down by segments and sales divisions.
  • Google Charts enables collaboration of analysts with marketing specialists. So, they can address issues with missing campaign information quickly and complete analysis of campaigns before deadline.
  • Google Charts allow their visualizations to be added to Gmail and website for simple readability. So, they don't have to be attached separately to an email being sent to supplier or category teams.

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.

Google Charts

  • I would like a couple more introductory videos or a live chat option for when you run into an issue. I think this is a Google-wide problem, not only linked to Google Charts.
  • I have run into some issues with the Dynamic Data but also admittedly could potentially dive in deeper and investigate.
  • It would be great if Google Charts made it possible to integrate Google Chat into the platform.

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.

Google Charts is a good product. It's widely supported with deep documentation and a large community. But for me, it wasn't customizable enough. When we started with simple charts, it was great, but as we got deeper and more complex, our needs outgrew the library. If I was going forward, I would choose a more barebones library with more freedom and extensibility.

Usability

Chartio (discontinued) 7.6

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.

Google Charts is about as easy to use as the rest of their applications. The UI is very well thought out, allowing you to add what you need, and customize it to your exact liking. The default theme is actually really nice, which helps as most of the time, customizing is not needed.

As a free tool with massively powerful, infinitely customisable charts that can be dynamically updated - Google Charts is my favourite data visualisation tool. However, my hatred of JavaScript does jade my view on it. This is the price of the tool though, and I'm glad it's available for me.

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.

Our teams were already using Google's G suite and as google charts simply came tagged along with it, they were more than happy to go with google charts given its capabilities. Though we have another BI solution in place but teams mostly work with google charts and export their output to BI tools advanced insights

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.
