Make Sense of Your Customers' Data

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.

Periscope Data - It's In The Name

Score 8 out of 10

Alternatives Considered

Periscope is far more robust than these two similar products. For a start up just getting going they are fine alternatives, but as your business scales Google Charts becomes a hassle to manage and Keap becomes too much of a generalized product. While your business increases it is generally best to get multiple specialized pieces of technology to help you maintain integrity in your data, and Periscope Data allows. Worth the money.

Make BI work for you with Periscope Data

Periscope's lightweight footprint and customizable SQL-based reports make it a better choice for us than Tableau or Microsoft BI. We deal with millions of rows of transactional data in a SQL Server data warehouse, so having seamless front-end integration makes reporting seamless.

Periscope Love

This is currently our primary visualization tool. There is no real option to do any meaningful math on your data, and you only have access to a very, very limited subset of information you stream into the cache. Periscope far exceeds this tool with the ability to combine data sources across disparate servers and perform detailed analysis upon the query results.

Explore and Visualize Your Data Without Much Hassle

Periscope Data enables data wrangling and is more familiar to SQL-savvy people - which are mostly analysts. Writing query is not really tedious for them, so it is not a huge problem. Quick and nice response from Periscope support is really helpful for the users.

Easy to use and beautiful dashboards!

Periscope is by far the best we looked at - I was evaluating as a user, not the primary decision maker, and user interface and ease of use was the primary factor in my decision. It is very easy to navigate and manipulate, and has an overall very polished view.

BI Analyst's Secret Weapon

LookML was able to simplify development of views involving window calculations, but slowed down the overall development cycle as minor SQL edits required heavy code reviews.

Tableau has great interactive options but has proved non-performant with our database mix (MySQL, PostgreSQL, Redshift).

Periscope - Powerful Customizable Dashboards

Score 9 out of 10

Alternatives Considered

Different in the sense that you need to be able to manipulate data with Periscope while you just need to understand how data is manipulated with Amplitude (Periscope = you need to master SQL vs Amplitude = you need to understand the logic of SQL). Periscope is a more powerful tool as it allows to go beyond and analyse data more deeply in a customizable way.
