Datawatch Monarch

The product is especially useful when you have real-time and/or time series data to analyze. If you have more mundane, simpler requirements, other products might do the job you need for less money (there are even some decent open source visualization tools you can find.) I know the product is very widely used in capital markets applications to monitor and analyze risk and price and volume changes; if you're working in that area, I don't think there's a better tool to use.

Cyfe

Cyfe is good for businesses that manage multiple websites, email campaigns and social media accounts for multiple clients, as it allows you to easily pull stats and visualize them all in one place. Make one account for each client and ask Cyfe to grab the metrics that are most meaningful to your campaigns, then you can share your dashboards with your clients, or like us, use Cyfe's visualizations to create aesthetically pleasing reports for clients to read.

Pros

Datawatch Monarch

  • Creating a basic model to extract data from a report is very easy.
  • Advanced features like Calculated Fields and External Lookups allow you to augment the raw data.
  • You can create a "project" to automate the data extraction. Combined with Datapump (a separate DW app), you can fully automate the process once the raw report is generated.

Cyfe

  • Cyfe makes it easy to create a professional looking dashboards in a short amount of time. With so many built-in data sources and the intuitive nature of the interface, you can have beautiful looking charts and graphs in no time!
  • One of the best features of Cyfe is the many data sources built-in and that each dashboard is not constrained to one source. One of the drawbacks I've seen in other tools is the limited ability to pull from multiple Google Analytics profiles, multiple AdWords accounts or from both AdWords and Bing in one dashboard. Cyfe has no such limitation.
  • Google Spreadsheets - if the data you need to show is not available via an API, being able to pull from Google spreadsheets is a great solution. Once set up, you can add data whenever you need to the spreadsheet and your widgets in the Cyfe dashboard are automatically updated. Huge time saver!

Cons

Datawatch Monarch

  • Recently, we had some major sticker-shock when we wanted to upgrade Data Pump. It is an exceptional product, but when the price jumped from $6,000 to over $60,000, it was impossible to get the funds approved internally for the upgrade.
  • We also paid for yearly maintenance contracts which included Professional Services, but rarely found those services beneficial. However, we did receive all software upgrades for Datapump as part of the contract which we found to be very beneficial. However, with the new pricing, that is not longer the case.

Cyfe

  • Documentation is sparse and confusing
  • Functionality is fairly basic and at times buggy
  • Third party integrations are limited and stagnant, very few have been added since we began using it
  • Widgets lack individual settings such as support for different date ranges
  • Widgets have limited customization options

Even though we do not utilize it on a daily basis, I do hope my current company renews it's license. If not, I intend to purchase myself.

Since initial trial, not only am I sold, but the rest of the company is sold on Cyfe as well. We look forward to expanded partners and capabilities. Our smaller firm does not have the need for multiple users as of yet, but growth is coming and the ability to scale with Cyfe is exciting.

It is very easy to use when creating dashboards that use widgets from existing integration partners. You can easily create attractive and functional dashboards in less than 5 minutes so the learning curve is minimal at most. Out-of-the-box capabilities are quite high for such a low priced service, so it's surprising how easy it is to use.

Because I had a very minor question and I was able to speak directly to the founder through LinkedIn and through email. I know that as they grow this may not always be an option but the fact that he made himself available to answer my questions said a lot about his passion for the product.

Cyfe is a 15 minutes implementation, then some time to get your data sources created. This is an easy one person job that will not result in down time or unnecessary wasted man hours.

Alternatives Considered

Datawatch is very good value of money compared to QlikView; QlikView is really more of a BI tool and has a lot of functions that I didn't need. Datawatch is very strong in the real-time area where Tableau, Panorama, and Qlik don't do very well. If you need to set up a visual monitoring dashboard, Datawatch is the best product I've seen for that. if you want to do a lot of in depth statistical analysis of large databases, Tableau is probably a good option.

Klipfolio probably had a lot of cool features, but it was SO user-UNfriendly that we never got to use them. We had high enough turnover in our company that people always needed Klipfolio training, and it was rarely completed to the satisfaction of trainees or trainers. It was simply too complicated for a fast-paced work environment. Even one of my regular duties (posting a screenshot of a completed task list) had to be accomplished in a roundabout, unwieldy way.
