ThoughtSpot

The dashboard is intuitive and can be customized in different ways and gives us the option to include what we want to show in the data analysis. I can say that ThoughtSpot's artificial intelligence is more improved than other software already tested and much faster to show all the collected data in real-time in a short time. Based on usability, I highly recommend ThoughtSpot as it is excellent value for money, easy to use, and collaborates a lot in decision making and business processes based on concrete and assertive data.

Yellowfin

We can recommend this software without hesitation, as it has the ability to generate reports and data analysis, as well as process the data automatically, which saves time. It is ideal for small and medium-sized companies that wish to improve their services in the business world
Luis Alcalá | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pros

ThoughtSpot

  • Beautiful visualizations. The visuals are distinct, clean, and easy to discern from one another.
  • Intelligent querying functionality. When looking to manipulate the data, the search function makes it easy to manipulate the features in the data, along with aggregating them in the way you'd like.
  • Embedding! It has been a smooth process thus far for our product & technical teams to work with ThoughtSpot and bring it into our product.
Keenan Singh | TrustRadius Reviewer

Yellowfin

  • Yellowfin’s Storyboard, Timeline and Collaborative tools make it easy to share data and insights across an organisation.
  • Strong Operational and Executive Dashboards that reflect the business KPIs and can send out prompts to people within the business based on rules.
  • Yellowfin makes it incredibly easy to create dynamic reports and dashboards which incorporate maps through locational intelligence functionality.
  • Yellowfin is a single license and all access is via a web browser making it perfect for both on-premise and cloud deployment. Mobile apps are also available.
  • User roles and source filtering allows Admin/IT to offer different functions/views by user group/role.
  • Mobile BI applications to support any device ..
  • API connectors ( YF 7.2 on the way in Mar16 ) for a range of third-party Web-based applications, data sources, Enterprises CRM/ERP apps & open data platform apps, including Salesforce, Google Analytics, Twitter, Youtube , Zoho CRM, XE.com & more coming to make endusers to integrate their applications for better benefits
  • Yellowfin Integration with Predictive analytical and Big Data processing tools like R, UDF, Spark to build rich applications for end users
Samir Kumar Sahoo | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

ThoughtSpot

  • It would be great if ThoughtSpot can add the feature to filter by clicking on visualizations. i.e if I click on a particular data point in the chart if the full dashboard can filter just for that particular data point.
  • Color coding the heatmap with different colors like green to orange to red.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Yellowfin

  • The ability to predefine a colour for a specific graph as a selection option dynamically.
  • The ability to customise the label of a chart, especially with respect to performance related reporting graphs we need an increase in dynamic charting options to meet our more specialised requirements.

We have had success with the initial use cases and there are more use cases that can receive return on investment. I don't give it a 10 because other products like Tableau are building functionality that may start to compete in the coming years.

The tool is easy to use if you know what you are doing and looking for. I know as they work towards improvements and simple language it will become even easier, but as of now they are doing a great job but there is room for improvement.

As mentioned previously, if a newer company is looking for a strong, polished BI tool, Yellowfin would be a great software vendor to consider. Unfortunately, the high cost might be a barrier to these newer companies who dont have any legacy software/agreements such as an EA agreement with Microsoft.

They have good support in what they provide. But what they provide is not what is promised. I would stay with them if I can. Be very careful before signing up with them. They are not what they seem in the sales pitches. Be very careful and make sure you test and test before you sign up.

Alternatives Considered

ThoughtSpot

We also explored Tableau Ask Data. Tableau is our standard for BI in our organization. We want to use the smallest amount of tools in our company to have the best adaption. ThoughSpot will fill a few gaps that we have with our current set up and will also enhance out offering for our employees in the transition of being more data driven within in near future
Torsten Wiegel | TrustRadius Reviewer

Yellowfin

Yellow Fin platform is browser agnostic and is accessible from desktops as well as mobile devices. It is very simple and fast, it is integrated with Big Data, clients do not require a great training. It just works. But it’s easier to have things on the cloud, especially if you need to use different computers. Yellow Fin lacks the cloud feature.

Return on Investment

ThoughtSpot

  • Time to market ROI is massive vs hiring the full-time dedicated team to build and maintain a frontend multi-tenant SaaS data viz product.
  • It will be interesting to see over time how the advanced features play out in terms of usability and end value, such as Natural Search, which we are very excited about, and the machine learning tools.
Chris Mann | TrustRadius Reviewer

Yellowfin

  • Yellowfin gives us a BI tool that is incredibly sleek, which leads our data to be clean, concise, and in an "easy-to-digest" format.
