Sqream Technologies
Panoply is well suited for companies with large amounts of data that do not want all users of the company to see or view. It is appropriate for companies that have to store data for several years in case clients need the data. It is not made to constantly be downloading or looking at the documents.

Cons
Sqream Technologies
  • The user interface could use some improvement for analytical tools. Apart from that, it’s great.

  • Include more appropriate updates in their monthly newsletter as opposed to the general overview that doesn't always have the most pertinent information at the forefront.
  • There are bugs at times when certain dashboards are down, though not in an overwhelming way.
  • If you do not tag something it shows up in multiple views and may be accessible to people that it should not be, though that is a user error it may make sense to prompt for a tag and security setting.

My company has had Periscope for various use cases in the past and I think that this program opens up complex data reports to non-technical people in a really accessible way (even though the learning curve is a big one). We are now integrating Sisense for Cloud Data Teams at a larger level both for internal data exploration and for customer facing dashboards and reports.

Support is world-class through email and ticketing. I only switch to email support when I can’t access help via the help center.

Panoply has much more storage and better organization tools for searching. There are better folders and tools for keeping documents secure and stored for a long period of time. It is better to offload data in mass than singular or Zip drive documents like you would do in Google Drive.

Google Analytics works well but it does not have all of the bells and whistles that Periscope Data offers. Google Analytics is best used in a Google environment but if you are using other tools and programs outside of the Google universe, then Periscope Data is a much better option.
