Digimind Intelligence

If you work in strategic marketing, business intelligence or competitive intelligence then Digimind can shave hours of time off your daily monitoring routine.You no longer have to manually trawl the web looking for news and no longer miss any important developments thanks to Digiminds ability to monitor sites up to 4 times a day.However it is important to understand that you can only get out of Digimind what you put in, so there is some initial effort involved in order to build up sources for the tool to monitor and setup your own folder structure to save information.

Tableau Desktop

It helps us to visualize and understand data. Helps in business analysis, predict market trends. Caters to the needs of an organization. Can be integrated with different kinds of data sources like Excel, CSV, different kinds of databases like Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle. On the other hand, need some understanding of statistics to use this software, cannot retrieve previous versions of the same file created. So, version management is a problem. Left joins cannot be created during data loading. These need to be created separately using blends.

Pros

Digimind Intelligence

  • Monitoring the web - upon thousands and thousands of sources can be monitored at the same time as well as new sources discovered by utilising the tools digimind offers
  • Content management - store all of your data within the portal and access from any location with internet access or use the "push mail" feature to have a daily or weekly summary of news sent directly to your email inbox.
  • Managing the news via newsletters and extranet sites - within minutes you can automate a specific newsletter and tailor it for the relevant audience. Extranets can also be set up to view the news online as well as to store it to be viewed at a later time.
  • Source discovery - Digimind now offers ways in which to find new sources for specific topics and quickly add them to your search agents so you can continue to monitor them

  • With Tableau you do not need to have technical knowledge to do the data integration and you get a quick response of what you are looking for, being your visualization of high quality.
  • We can say that it is free software and it is not a limited version
Yusmelys Lopez | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Digimind Intelligence

  • New users may find it difficult to initially setup their Digimind platform as some of the functions appear a little complex, however with a short training session this can be easily overcome.
  • Extranets are extemely useful for displaying current news as well as searching for old articles at a later date. There is one problem with the search function however which does not allow you to show results with the latest date so you often have to either know the exact headline or end up scrolling through a few pages before you find the correct one. A "show newest first" function would be a great improvement.
Jonathan Fairbank | TrustRadius Reviewer

Tableau Desktop

  • Tableau is ill-suited to work with SSAS cubes, at least when you are used to analysis within Microsoft tools
  • Data preparation is not up-to-par with other leading vendor tools (although can be improved through Alteryx if you have access to it)
  • The ease-of-use is true for basic analysis, but rapidly gives way to a steep learning curve with more complex queries or when the business context is more mathematics oriented

After using Digimind for many years, it has become an integral part of our business intelligence process.We have developed our platform over this time with the help of the Digimind team and are very happy with the level of support we receive.

Because right now its the best option out there (disclosure: I haven't used Qlikview or some of the other direct competitors of Tableau). The big investment is in Tableau Server not desktop. For the cost of the license of Tableau desktop, its a pretty good deal. You can hook it up to pretty much any data source easily. You can easily share the visualizations with your team/colleagues easily. Tableau Desktop is generally easy to use for business users. But the more advanced stuff is better suited for a analyst or someone with a IT/CS background.

I am really a fan of tableau for its quick setup, data connection, dashboard creation time and very easy to use UI.As i have used multiple Bi tools like QlikView and SAP BO, i can say all other tools take really long time in performing above functionalities except QlikView which is really fast in term of performing analysis.

When used as a stand-alone tool, Tableau Desktop has unlimited uptime, which is always nice. When used in conjunction with Tableau Server, this tool has as much uptime as your server admins are willing to give it. All in all, I've never had an issue with Tableau's availability.

Tableau's connections to third-party sources can be somewhat slow due to the time required to speak to a source over a network. However, if you properly utilize Tableau's Data Source Extracts, then the speed is incredible. On the other hand, Tableau makes it very easy for the user to put too much data into one dashboard, which can impact performance. All in all, if you use the tool properly, speed should not be a concern.

I still haven't found something that stumped me for long. The company materials are first-rate and their seems to be a natural affinity among the professionals using the product. It seems there are many who want to help those that are following them onto the platform. I've never noticed any condescension to new users or obvious questions in the forums or my personal exchanges.

It is admittedly hard to train a group of people with disparate levels of ability coming in, but the software is so easy to use that this is not a huge problem; anyone who can follow simple instructions can catch up pretty quickly.

Time needs to be spent ahead of implementation to make sure data sources are set up and ready. Consultants need to understand the data sources and the goals before setting foot on-site. Installation is easy, learning to use it takes time. The training resources available are great.

Alternatives Considered

Digimind Intelligence

We initially trialled the Digimind platform just over 6 years ago, after looking at many alternative tools and platforms.Having used a tool called "website watcher" which had to be installed locally to alert on changes in web pages, moving to digimind could be compared to changing from a landline to using a modern smart phone.We originally looked at a wide range of products:-News monitors: Meltwater News, Factiva (great for sources, however lacking what a full CI platform can offer, sometimes work well in unison with Digimind itself, especially if they can offer RSS feeds which can be channelled directly in to Digimind)Clustering engines; - Kartoo Watch, Exalead (great for finding information and sources, but not much use for managing data itself)CI Platforms; QL2, Intelligenxia (now UReveal), Novintel (now global intelligence alliance), nStein (now a division of Open Text) and several more now defunct platforms.The closest to Digimind in terms of features looked to be QL2 as the others had gaps in one area or another.Digimind offered by far the most features and has the capability to allow multiple users access to a shared platform on a global basis.Support is also very good with new features and improvements being added on a regular basis.As the platform is "in the cloud" you can access it from anywhere with an internet connection via the website and your login.After 6 years of use we are still extremely happy with Digimind and have adopted the platform globally with users from different countries sharing information through it internally which likely would not have happend without the platform.Alternative products are now starting to appear but they still have a long way to go in order to offer the level of functionality and ongoing development which Digimind can offer.

When we first looked at getting a visualization software for analytics we looked into two options Microsoft Power BI and Tableau Desktop, and even though Power BI is more cost-effective we decided to go with Tableau Desktop as it had more options that we are looking for such as free reader and Tableau Server and offers a very comprehensive and simple interface that is easier to learn for new staff.

Although tableau is highly interactive and fast but with very large dataset its performance degrades heavily. So up to certain extent its really good but after that we have to take care of its performance issues.
