If you need a tool to help you generate different kinds of charts based on your data, and if you know a little bit about JavaScript programming, and if you are able to stay online all the time, then try Google charts. Though the learning curve can take longer, overall, it is a great choice.

I would definitely recommend Google Charts, it's very easy to implement and connect to existing applications and internal or external APIs. Since this kind of application would be very complex to develop from the ground up, Google Charts helps us by saving time and enabling our team to focus on other parts of our products.

Google Charts work best when creating simple visualizations of marketing dataset. Such as trendlines showing growth in cases sold or visualizations showing new customer lift attributed to campaigns. They don't work that well for doing regression analysis using millions of rows of clickstream data or creating predictive models. To do more complex analysis or custom charting, its recommended to use tools such as Excel, Tableau or microstrategy. Additionally, Google Charts are more productive when an organization is using Google Suite and Google 360 tools.

I definitely recommend this tool for any business. We use it both for ourselves and for our clients to share data and charts with them as well. If you work for a business and need to analyze data, then it is important to visualize this data too.

Google Charts is perfectly suited for most presentations that are data oriented. There's not much of a limit on the type of table or chart you can create, and being able to integrate with Google Sheets just makes things even easier if you've already got the data stored somewhere. It works well on desktop browsers, Iphones, and Android phones. The only drawback I've been able to find is for those that prefer to have a desktop application.

  • Scenarios where Google Charts are well suited - Complex analytical reports are not needed, data source doesn't keep changing, and integration with data source already exists.
  • Scenarios where Google Charts are less appropriate - Complex analytics and reporting is needed. Data is highly scaled and changes very frequently. Lot of sorting and filtering is needed.

Google Charts is best suited for charts that aren't static, so I do not use them for example in PowerPoint presentations. However, to track progress of business cases, it is extremely well suited as the charts can be made dynamic extremely easily. The charts can also be produced so they exactly match your companies theme, as long as you know Javascript.

Google Charts is well suited in situations where data is collected and intended to be displayed visually. For example, I can collect information about a client and then collect that information into a simple scatter plot that will allow [viewing] trends or changes in the data that is collected. It allows managers to collect information about the information that their team is working on to adjust where resources should be allocated to.

Google Charts is just one step short of being the perfect BI tool you would want to have. It is free mostly but for enterprises it comes in a package with G suite. It can help you create all types of charts, and those charts can be embedded in dashboards for a single holistic view of your applications. Its ability to work with data from other google apps is simply amazing and as Google is part of most of our daily lives, Google Charts doesn't make you feel like you're working with something new from day one.

Google Charts is well suited for website creation and illuminating the readers of websites of the data visualization. For organizations with limited resources and budgets, like college students and universities and student clubs, Google Charts is very appropriate and reachable. For corporates, banks and management and information technology consulting firms, it just does not have the technical and functional capabilities.

It is simple to use. It is very free, so we used it at a non profit organization. Easy transition to the next executive Committee. However shareability across Microsoft platforms has scope for improvement. Different types of charts can be conveniently used to represent different types of data that’s used in an organization.

I have used Google Charts to showcase all our website, social, and newsletter analytics. It's quick and easy to built these internal dashboards for ourselves. If you need a chart system quickly and don't need it branded, Google Charts is a good option.

I would definitely recommend this to any budding business or one that's already established. It's Google so it's reliable, easy to use and very user friendly. I rave regularly on its functionality and ability to present metrics to others.

Google Charts is extremely well suited for what it is described. It aids graphical representation of data very efficiently, and that is our main reason to use it. We have tons of data coming from hundreds of sources, and we need to organize it and Google Charts provides the right tools to do so without expending much time on it.
