Cons

Azure Synapse Analytics (Azure SQL Data Warehouse)

  • Limited T-SQL query library
  • It is not suitable for OLTP environment
  • Doesn't support cross-database queries
Prabhu Sundararaj | TrustRadius Reviewer

ThoughtSpot

  • ThoughtSpot can do a better job of providing prescriptive analytics.
  • Live connection for other databases is a much needed feature.
  • Pinboard canvas should allow for custom size rather than sticking to 5 pre-defined sizes.
  • More features needed in pinboard level filters.

We have had success with the initial use cases and there are more use cases that can receive return on investment. I don't give it a 10 because other products like Tableau are building functionality that may start to compete in the coming years.

It helps us to provide data just in time to our clients. With help of massively parallel processing, it consumes less time for both loading and querying the data and it also helps us to plan a more precise budget to our business and send just-in-time alerts in case of any outrage.

Our business data is very complex and would require more effort to have the underlying data set up properly in order the search to be meaningful. It would require change of culture to adopt the new analytical search in the day-to-day functions, as existing reports still seem to be the preferred choice.

Alternatives Considered

Azure Synapse Analytics (Azure SQL Data Warehouse)

SQL Data Warehousing is much easier to manage if you already have SQL Server experience and analysts who are familiar with its interface. We are currently piloting using NoSQL and Hadoop type databases but it is difficult to get set up properly. Additionally, we have to re-train our users to learn how to create python scripts and use spark to query the data
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

ThoughtSpot

ThoughtSpot is just as good at creating the initial graphic for the end user, it might even be better because the user really does not need much technical knowledge in order to create a basic graphic. Currently, ThoughtSpot cannot yet compete with the other tools when it comes to designing a fully interactive dashboard or with customization of graphics.

Return on Investment

Azure Synapse Analytics (Azure SQL Data Warehouse)

  • We have had an improvement in our overall processing time
  • Cost was much lower than most of its competitors
  • Our reporting needs have grown and housing the data here has been great
Samir Patel, PMP | TrustRadius Reviewer

ThoughtSpot

  • I think ThoughtSpot helped save a lot of time of people (mostly in IT and Finance), so there's a tangible return of investment.
  • I also think this helped to give better visibility to our teams. Having the option of drilling down helps the team to be more informed and under the detail.
