Zoho Analytics
Chose Zoho Analytics
Substantially more cost-effective and very similar functionality. The graphs and dashboards are definitely not as pretty as the ones mentioned above but we found it hard to justify tens of thousands of dollars more.
Chose Zoho Analytics
Quality of Support is superior to any other solution. Adding an unbeatable price, it's been a no-brainer for us to select Zoho
Chose Zoho Analytics
Zoho Reports has the features that we were looking for -
  • Import of data from an API endpoint in JSON format (no specific schema)
  • Scheduled imports

I really like to use Prism, compared to other software, for data analysis. It allows a quick "plug and play" of the data and is very tolerant of many data formats. I typically resort to other software only when I need a more specific statistical analysis, or if I need a graphically cleaner visualization.

If you've got multiple applications to pull data from, Zoho Analytics is key. As soon as you get beyond hundreds, and into thousands of rows, I'd say you need a tool like Zoho Analytics. We've used it to analyze millions of rows and the engine seems to work well. If you've been able to utilize Excel to create visualizations, you'll find Zoho Analytics to be much more user friendly, in my opinion

ZOHO is a very reliable company/product. We never had any issues with downtime or inaccessibility to our data. Any type of maintenance that they had to perform was clearly communicated and never an issue. We use a lot of external hooks and we've never had any issues with getting ZOHO to communicate with any of those hooks.

ZOHO has obviously invested a lot of time effort and money in to creating a reliable infrastructure with high availability. We've never had any issues with performance and all of our data crunching small to large has always been well within reason. We have come to appreciate the performance of ZOHO and will continue to use it for all of our data needs.

The support team is honestly not that great. At times, it seems as if members of our own team know more about the product than the support team. They must not have a lot of training or the turnaround is quick

If your external data sources are previously organized and correlated (e.g.: in your datawarehouse or database) your implementation will be easier. Of cource some not previously predicted correlation would be necessary to be done during the implementation, but if your organization let it to be all done into Zoho Analytics, it will take more time from your team.

Excel would be the next best thing to use. It is free for the academic lab to use though the quality of the figure is lacking and not standardized. Excel also lacks easy to use built-in formulas for data manipulation and can be tedious to replicate the same data Prism can do with a single click.

We used Yellowfin for 1 year and it really doesn't compare to Zoho Analytics because it doesn't have the native integration with ManageEngine's tools and the customization is more technical, Zoho Analytics lets you create dashboards automatically, immediately when you connect the data source (no matter if that is a MSSQL database, URL or an XLS file), maybe you will require custom some details in the dashboard, but it's not compared to create it from zero.

I have not really had problems with the operation of the platform; when I accessed it, I managed to do the work in the ideal times. The statistical development responds very quickly to the user’s requirements, and it is easy to extract the data to make the particular combinations that interest the industry.
