Periscope Data is really well suited for organizations that work with a lot of data and need ways to share data internally or externally with clients. All of the features of the software can fully be taken advantage of if you have staff that is well versed in data analytics, data management, and programming.

- Perfect for use cases which have multiple data sources with a range of databases, CRM tools, and marketing tools to solve data integration issues towards achieving a single source of truth.
- Despite having an excellent support team it is recommended to have good SQL knowledge to get the best out of data analysis using Periscope Data.

What makes Periscope an outstanding platform is the value it creates for BI developers. Dashboards and charts are easy to create with some basic T-SQL knowledge, and can be quickly deployed. The API can be leveraged for internal or customer-facing business applications that need to embed BI charts. Periscope's customer support is awesome, with knowledgeable agents who are always ready and willing to help, and will run down bug reports/issues with the software team quickly, usually responding within a day if escalation is needed. The cost is reasonable, and the platform is constantly improving.

Periscope is great if you have a few technical people in the company who know SQL well and want to be able to set up dashboards for use by both technical and non-technical users in the company. It is very good at visualizing raw data through standard charts, though if you want something more elegant or complicated than tables, bar, and line graphs you may need to look elsewhere.

Your data is eventually consistent, this includes your data pipeline to your warehouse, to roughly an hour so real time metrics are difficult if your time constraints are less than that. I have yet to find a position/department in our company that could not benefit from Periscope. In fact we are moving several of our other data visualizations off other systems and into Periscope since it is so very much better suited to those roles.

Periscope is well suited when an organisation is relying very much on data to make informed marketing and business decisions. It's an easy way to visualise data in a simplified manner without having to deal with extensive Excel sheets with a lot of incomprehensible tables. Each dashboard can be specific to a department and each KPI can be displayed.

It's very well suited for keeping track of sales data and other performance data within your various departments. If you have a lot of customers, you can track data that is in your CRM. Through customization, you can create reports depending on what you need. It's less appropriate if you don't have a lot of data or moving parts you need to track. Smaller companies with simple sales and expenses don't need a tool like this.

Periscope Data

Periscope is well suited to turn large batches of data into visually appealing reports and graphs. You can create "dashboards" that house multiple reports and graphs in a single interface as well.

Periscope is less appropriate for businesses that don't have much data to visualize or don't have a technical expert to implement the solution.

If you are a technology company that is reliant of accessible data then this is the platform for you. We work with over 10,000 clients with an average of a couple hundred data point per client on any given day. If your volume of reporting and metrics is not at that level yet, it may not be as useful (or, rather, may overload you with information that distracts from your specifics). The use of charts and vanity metrics, however, is incredibly useful for everyone from sales to marketing and everything in between. It helps make data actionable.

If your company is still on the early stage yet it produces data with various domains, your analysts will be grateful to have Periscope Data as the main tool. Although they might not be able to combine your data here - except relies on Periscope cache (which is super helpful!), they could explore the data quite easily and produce visualization without additional coding skills. Periscope Data's support team is quite responsive and they don't hesitate to jump in and help to solve your problems.

Any time you're trying to create graphs and charts from large amounts of data. You can select and update data in real time, and provide on going changing and live graphs. It's very helpful for creating impressive dashboards to visually understand data quickly and effectively. You can also use Periscope for drawing conclusions from sales and performance metrics.

Pick Periscope for an environment where analysts are fluent in SQL and business users want to explore charts and self-service data downloads.

Business users who want to explore for insights themselves but don't want to learn SQL may have some difficulty without training.
