Pros

  • 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.

Cons

  • 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 think it provides our company with access to most things that we need

Usability

Based on 6 answers
Chartio has been very helpful for our organization. In the beginning figuring out how to set up charts took a little while, but that was learning how to use Chartio.

Online Training

Chartio8.2
Based on 1 answer
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)

Breadth of Deployment

Chartio is being used departmentally by our regional market health managers as well as our data and tech team.

Alternatives Considered

I kind of hit on this earlier, but simply put: Usability. We were given tutorials by our Data Science team using Birst, and even they encountered a few hiccups explaining things: they use this everyday! We trialed Chartio with people having zero BI software experience and they took less than an hour to go off creating their own charts. Tableau was more expensive than we were looking to spend as this was a whole new undertaking.

Collaboration and Sharing

Chartio9.5
Based on 28 answers
I gave Chartio an 8 on sharing an collaboration mostly because sharing charts across dashboards is kind of wonky. You have to clone the chart, then save the cart to another dashboard. If you save without cloning it removes the chart from the source dashboard. This has caused a few issues for our users. Outside of that use case, sharing collaboration is very easy and I would have otherwise rated it 10.

Data Integration

Supports many different type of datasources and it is super easy to connect.Merging data from multiple sources is not impossible but quite complex to do.

Scalability

Chartio6.8
Based on 2 answers
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.
