It helps us create dashboards and reports using data from various sources. It helps us make smart and data-driven decisions within our organization.
It has helped me in creating on the multi-platform based reports that can be easily shared. Although it's support for AI can be improved and scaled to use of large data efficiently.
  • Easy to use UI
  • Good visual representation
  • Good interactive dashboards
  • It can perform ETL flawlessly and perform data cleaning.
  • Integration with different sources
  • Large data handling can be improved
It is well suited for organizations with medium budget-based requirements. It lags capabilities for using multiple data sources.
  • Good tool but lacks some advanced and AI based insights
  • Integration with other software needs to worked upon
  • Lacks huge data handling capacity
  • It can helps us in identifying anomalies in the data like outliers, trend deviation etc.
I have evaluated a lot of tools like Power BI, Tableau, Orange etc..
Very user-friendly UI and visual representation is also good for the price offered. Good tool but lacks some advanced and AI-based insights. It has an edge over other tools for the price of this tool. It has some great potential and i would consider this in my top 5 when considering tools of this domain.
Support can be improved and also online help and support from blogs and other sources are limited. But essentially it is overall cost-friendly.
They need to introduce a lot of content online so that users can debug or enhance their dashboards without raising a query with support team for small doubts.

Altair SmartSight is one of the best companies available in the market to provide services related to Analytics, BigData, IoT, and multiple use cases. Altair SmartSights provides the cloud-based analytics platform to embed the different software, products, and analysis under one platform with high-performance systems, great user experience, and so on. Altair Smart Sight provides the platforms for every organization that want to avoid the headache of managing multiple servers, maintenance, and other things.
  • Big Data Analytics
  • IOT Services
  • Single platform for multiple use cases
  • Great UI
  • One of the first thing they should allow students to explore and learn the platform.
  • Altair SmartSight is really a good product but they should include the Automation Services with it.
  • Altair SmartSight should have a feature to send the automatic Email whenever there is a change.
As per my knowledge and Altair Product experience, It is really a good product that comes with multiple features like IoT, BigData, dashboards, and other things. I personally really enjoyed using the services provided by Altair. It is well suited for the organizations who don't spend much time setting up their own platform, maintenance, and much more because Altair not only provides the platform but they will care about your products with good customer support and maintenance. I only found a bit low in the case of machine learning and AI products because I have checked different products that provide these services with good accuracy.
  • According to market positioning Altair SmartSight really increased its market.
  • Good in case of ROI
  • On overall business objectives its really good and continuously performing well.
Altair smart sight stacks up against all the products mentioned above because it comes with a wide variety of applications and services like Big Data, IoT services, Embedded systems, cloud-based service, data visualization, Machine learning, dashboarding, and much more. I have used the other products like Logi Composer, Tableau CRM, and PowerBI but they only handle the specific use cases. So Because of that Altair Smartsight really provide a good and wide range of solution.

As I already shared the details related to Altair Smart Sight It comes with a wide range of products that is really helpful for an organization that wants to design its dashboards, Embeds application, and much more. Products like Big Data, IoT services, Embedded systems, cloud-based services, data visualization, Machine learning, dashboarding, and much more. And No one is perfect there is always a place for improvement So Because of that I am giving it a 9.
I really like the Altair SmartSight services because they are available anytime for different types of support. This is one of the best things why I used the Alair SmartSight. So I found that Altair SmartSight is really good in terms of customer services and provides them the quality services because of that I am giving the 10 rating to it.

It provides us with a governed and secure environment. Where users can share workflows, with an enhanced service and models with an easy to use visual interface. Logging in takes us to the library where we see workflows of folders and sets of objects that we have created and uploaded, as well as objects that other users have shared with us to work collaboratively.
  • The global navigation bar with links to the library for easy access and management within the platform.
  • Simplified task viewer where we can find the profile, performance, help, resources and a link also to manage your account.
  • System administrators can define profiles for task execution.
  • For better decision making, the connection with other applications can be developed.
  • The ability to handle large datasets can be improved, as it sometimes crashes
  • It is sometimes blocked, which hinders results and deadlines.
Information about each profile and task execution is also available, such as active sessions for profile configuration details and internal connections created for the profile. The task viewer shows all tasks running in the application along with their status and other information about each task. In case of problems, this is useful for looking up the details of a task and providing information to the system administrator or helpdesk.
  • The workflow interface consists of the workflow canvas where we do our actual pipeline and workflow execution log, display information and each process.
  • You can use it to create a workflow and the available execution profiles in which to run them.
  • We currently have one session running for each workflow.
We can obtain information about the application, the available engines in which execution profiles can be created, as well as information about add-ons.Access to the Community and help documentation can also be accessed from the same platform. Finally, you can manage your account, update your email address, change your password, etc. quickly.
You can rapidly adjust your account, such as changing your email or password. We may learn about the app, the engines available for creating execution profiles, and add-ons. Accessibility to the Community and help materials are also available from the same site.

We needed to enhance our decision-making process by analyzing data coming from different sources in our company. The focus was on Sales analytics and our objective was to extract actionable insight to present to CxO for yearly strategy planning sessions. Moreover, we need to integrate different sources like CRM and compensation management tools.
  • Data visualization is clear
  • Great user experience
  • Great performances
  • Integration with other systems could be better.
  • Ability to handle large amount of data.
  • Expertise services might be better.
We used Carriots Analytics to perform Sales performance analysis like quota monitoring, churn, and satisfaction analysis. The tool performed very well even though the learning curve isn’t so flat at the very beginning. It is easy to configure and customize once you get used to it. We started to use the tool also for monitoring internal processes performance.
  • +30% in successful business decision.
  • Improvement in quota performance precision.
  • Operational efficiency increase.
  • Tableau CRM (formerly Einstein Analytics)
Altair SmartSight stacks up against other competitors when it comes to user experience and performance on a limited amount of data (<2M records). Moreover Carriots Analytics has a good customer service and an efficient and prepared expertise service. It is less efficient when it comes to integrating with different data sources and dealing with large datasets.

Usability is one of the most important strengths of Altair SmartSight. It is easy to configure dashboards and reports based on available data.
We have been supported by Altair customer service just one time and they were very competent and well prepared. I would definitely recommend Altair SmartSight when it comes to expert and customer support.

It is a very useful software to analyze any type of data. It possesses tools like the creation of dashboards that facilitate the visualization of data and permits a better resource to make decisions about any type of process concern.
  • Dashboards
  • Visual representation of data
  • Data report generation
  • Ability to handle huge data
  • Interaction with other software
For any type of situation where you are required to analyze data to make reports or make decisions, Altair SmartSight is the software to use. The tools it possesses to visualize data are very useful and easy to manage.
  • Quick decision making
  • Identification of improvement areas
  • Daily data reporting
Altair SmartSight is the only software of this kind that I have used.
It is a very dynamic software, with tools to be very useful in data analytics. Either way, it needs to improve the connectivity capability with other software. That way, it will increase its tools.
I only had one problem with the software, and the support system response was very quick.
