    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

    IBM Analytics Engine

    • Well suited for my big data related project or a static data set analysis especially for uploading huge dataset to the cluster.
    • But had some issues with connecting IoT real-time data and feeding to Power BI. It might be my understanding please take it as a mere comment rather than a suggestion.

    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.

    IBM Analytics Engine

    • It integrates easily with other IBM Watson Data Platform services thus improving collaboration.
    • The use of object storage helps to protect data and improve availability.
    • Users can spin up Hadoop and Spark clusters within minutes and manage them from a single point of control.

    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.

    • I find most of the functions user friendly and most importantly best fits in multi business setup and users easily adapt to the system. Also, you get a lot done in a very short period of time.

    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.

    IBM Analytics is a great tool and a welcome addition to your overall IBM strategy. I think in cases of tools like this, you either go with what your platform works best with or you go completely different with a 3rd party, like Snowflake. We are an Azure shop and just happened to have a division on IBM and wanted to give it a try. Performance-wise it stacks up against the other platform-specific tools, so you should feel comfortable when your data strategy tips in favor of needing more organization.

    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.

    • The cost to implement was definitely a plus when it came to choosing the IBM Analytics Engine.
    • While sufficient, the overall support received from IBM was less than that for which we had planned.
    • We were able to separate storage and computing while paving the way for easier cluster administration.
