It is excellent when you are wanting to create clean, straight to the point, data visualizations. Pie charts, bar graphs, and the appropriate drill-downs are easy to develop and deploy. This helps a lot when needing to develop a data visualization solution for non-technical teams. However, the lack of customizability makes it difficult to create specialized visualizations.

Sisense for Cloud Data Teams (formerly Periscope Data)

If you are a technology company that is reliant of accessible data then this is the platform for you. We work with over 10,000 clients with an average of a couple hundred data point per client on any given day. If your volume of reporting and metrics is not at that level yet, it may not be as useful (or, rather, may overload you with information that distracts from your specifics). The use of charts and vanity metrics, however, is incredibly useful for everyone from sales to marketing and everything in between. It helps make data actionable

  • Outstanding customer service/support, with expert advice as needed.

  • Some of the dashboards can be slow to load; especially when they have lots of features and widgets.
  • The software could be made a little easier for people that don't have a data or programming background.
  • It is pricey so not a great option for small companies or research/home projects.

It could be used easily by business users once they understand basic SQL and the dataset; they could perform customized query according to their needs, without having to ask analysts repeatedly to provide them. The support team is quite responsive, and they could also help directly to make your erroneous dashboard run smoothly.

Highcharts

Highcharts is almost 10 times more popular on real websites, so we decided to go safe here. The community was most important to us.

Periscope is by far the best we looked at - I was evaluating as a user, not the primary decision maker, and user interface and ease of use was the primary factor in my decision. It is very easy to navigate and manipulate, and has an overall very polished view

  • Positive Impact: Before Periscope Data was available to my department, I had to search through the Que in Smile Check for the cases that were low hanging fruit. Now Periscope pulls that data and that data only from those Ques and I am able to use the filters for better accuracy.
