Factiva

A large part of our work depends on the ability to source quality media content from a breadth of dependable sources globally. This is Factiva's bread and butter: it has a very comprehensive list of 'quality' media sources such as nationals, dailies, business journals and magazines from around the world that are easily mined for the content they hold. If you're thinking about anything other than these 'traditional' media sources then Factiva probably isn't your thing. It doesn't do social media.

Google Charts

We can easily recommend Google Charts to any company that needs a way to visually represent their data. Another great thing about Google Charts is that it is free to use and does not require any membership fees. Although it requires a skilled used to be able to use the charts, the results are great and can be beneficial to any company who is looking to make better decisions.

Pros

Factiva

  • Factiva offers excellent search builders so that I am able to narrow my search to specific companies or topics very easily.
  • Factiva combines a large number of credible sources into one place and allows me to search all of these sources.
  • Factiva's use of timestamps helps me understand when the news was known by the market which allows me to analyze how (if at all) that particular piece of news impacted the company's stock price.
  • Provides an excellent starting place for learning about a company and/or industry.

Google Charts

  • Google Charts help create trendline and stacked column charts to show case growth and new customer lift. As well as, they help visualize customer acquisition broken down by segments and sales divisions.
  • Google Charts enables collaboration of analysts with marketing specialists. So, they can address issues with missing campaign information quickly and complete analysis of campaigns before deadline.
  • Google Charts allow their visualizations to be added to Gmail and website for simple readability. So, they don't have to be attached separately to an email being sent to supplier or category teams.

Cons

Factiva

  • The UX leaves room to be desired
  • There are often repetitive entries
  • The functionality can be confusing
Jacob Batchelor | TrustRadius Reviewer

Google Charts

  • I would like a couple more introductory videos or a live chat option for when you run into an issue. I think this is a Google-wide problem, not only linked to Google Charts.
  • I have run into some issues with the Dynamic Data but also admittedly could potentially dive in deeper and investigate.
  • It would be great if Google Charts made it possible to integrate Google Chat into the platform.

Google Charts is a good product. It's widely supported with deep documentation and a large community. But for me, it wasn't customizable enough. When we started with simple charts, it was great, but as we got deeper and more complex, our needs outgrew the library. If I was going forward, I would choose a more barebones library with more freedom and extensibility.

Google Charts is about as easy to use as the rest of their applications. The UI is very well thought out, allowing you to add what you need, and customize it to your exact liking. The default theme is actually really nice, which helps as most of the time, customizing is not needed.

As a free tool with massively powerful, infinitely customisable charts that can be dynamically updated - Google Charts is my favourite data visualisation tool. However, my hatred of JavaScript does jade my view on it. This is the price of the tool though, and I'm glad it's available for me.

Alternatives Considered

Factiva

At the time, Factiva was already being used by the company I worked for - they had developed procedures specifically for using Factiva, so there wasn't really an option. I've used Lexis, Westlaw and Bloomberg exclusively for legal research, so there wasn't really an overlap with Factiva.

Our teams were already using Google's G suite and as google charts simply came tagged along with it, they were more than happy to go with google charts given its capabilities. Though we have another BI solution in place but teams mostly work with google charts and export their output to BI tools advanced insights
