Any data-driven business that requires metrics and performance benchmarks, that need to drill into data for analysis, should use Bright Gauge. If you don't require data that can be displayed in a meaningful way, and that's not important to your business, then this product is probably not for you; otherwise, it's great.

For example, you can make detailed sales analyzes of a product group on the basis of countries and years. As I wrote before, specifically; I'm analyzing the market sale information of household products depending on region and country. In Qlik Sense we developed a dashboard that helps us to reach more trend information and product needs country by country. And then we reshape our product specifications and futures for specific regions. Thus, we can increase our market share. I also use a dashboard that tracks projects' resources, critical milestones, and timelines. All projects can be viewed by everyone at the same time.

Cons
ConnectWise
  • Support quality has decreased since BrightGauge was acquired by Continuum then ConnectWise.
  • It would be helpful to be able to change multiple similar gauges at one time, as opposed to individually.
  • Reporting system could be improved. At the moment, I am not comfortable scheduling reports to be sent to customers.

  • Data analysis in data groups is of great help that allows us to visualize impressive results, however, these tools that are so useful and tremendous to us are not easy to use.
  • Windows are not very friendly or intuitive.
  • The support or customer service leaves a lot to be desired.

Usability
ConnectWise
Usability is BrightGauge's strength. Granting the ability of virtually any user to be able to create a dashboard is incredibly valuable. If an organization very simple and straight forward reporting needs then BrightGauge is a perfect fit for them. Connecting to the dataset we used was very quick and easy and I imagine it would be the same for any major data source you would like to pull from.

Standard user interface and powerful analytic functions is GREAT. As technical person working in the background there are more things to do to make this a completely great tool. Some functions that should be standard requires consult scripting and hours. Now we are using it quite advanced and with many servers and in combination with QlikView. So overall I love the tool. But it could be better and user friendly and powerful in the background

ConnectWise
We did not need to use BrightGauge's support for the entire time that we used it. Best support is always the one that isn't needed because nothing breaks.

Not only can you ask the support team for help, but you can also ask the community. Also with the community there is a vast amount of problems that have already been solved. The problem you are encountering has a likely chance of already being discussed and even solved in the community section saving you time from reaching out.

We looked very briefly at Solar Winds, but due to Connectwise the reporting was not very accurate and was conflicted.

The customization of the platform opens up plenty of other options depending on the use cases. The API layer is incredibly rich and makes integration of Qlik based visualization into web pages a simple and effective pattern. It's been very easy to use with a great community made up of professionals. Qlik Sense has introduces artificial Intelligence into my data visualization and reporting activity.

Return on Investment
ConnectWise
  • ROI can be difficult to measure specifically on a tool like this, but quicker, easier access to information is key.
  • Decrease workload and time in creation of reports has definitely created an ROI.

  • The direct impact on revenue has not been attributable or measurable because every dashboard or data set on Qlik Sense is just a reflection of what has gone wrong or where we missed an opportunity
  • The subscription amount was a burn on our cash reserves as it was a year-long subscription
