We use ThoughtSpot as a central piece of our analytics platform. It houses a large majority of our internal and external reporting. It covers a pretty large scope and solves numerous business problems for us, including ad hoc reporting, embedded reporting, internal reporting, external reporting etc. We also leverage RLS to limit external reporting.
  • Reporting development is pretty simple
  • RLS
  • Visualizations are pretty clean for the most part.
  • Objects are not able to be referenced across
  • Lacks the ability to put reports in directories. There's no sense of organization
  • Reporting can be very buggy sometimes
  • Can't limit peoples ability to create as many reports as they want.
I think that if a company is looking to roll out a suite of reporting more centrally focused on ad hoc reporting and not necessarily looking to lock down their environment and report creation to strictly and internal analytics or BI team, ThoughtSpot fits that use case. Anything that needs more structure/limitation is not right for ThoughtSpot.

We use ThoughtSpot for internal and external curated analytics.
  • Speed of dev
  • Makes complex formulas slightly easier
  • Visualizations
  • Basic functionality
  • Focus on the basics as opposed to all in on AI
ThoughtSpot is not awful but it is very far from a trusted enterprise platform. We have experienced a significant amount of bugs and ThoughtSpot lacks basic functionality that other BI tool leaders have out of the box.

we use ThoughtSpot as our main dashboard and analytical tool. The main business problem was that most of our analyst team is non-technical but have great expertise in domain knowledge. There was also constrained of the data engineering team and – boarding team not understanding the domain and providing dashboard and analysis Which were time consuming, resource, heavy and not very useful to the analyst team. Hence, we built a use case across operational efficiency, resource management, as well as the use of technology technology to get insights, especially the AI, analytical part of ThoughtSpot. This allows non-technical analyst as well as the account managers to directly create stories and insights which are useful to the client in a quick and easy way.
  • Dashboarding for non-tech people
  • Easy Search of data
  • Ease of getting insights
  • AI driven Analytics
  • Easy to build charts
  • UI
  • Integration with Microsoft products
ThoughtSpot is really useful. If you have domain experts who lack technical abilities and you need them to get to insights and stories real quick. It is not useful when you have large data engineering teams who have the practical knowledge of the domain or the data. Scientist do have the domain knowledge as the product is expensive

ThoughtSpot allows us to create liveboards that are fast processing when it comes to large datasets. We are able to do live data connections that give us the scalability to find insights that ultimately guide us in strategic management of our data whether it is engineering, marketing, product, etc. This serves a wide array of use cases on whether this is strategy-focused or product-focused.
  • Data connections with live data sources
  • Customer support with chat
  • Ease of use with visual charts
  • formulas are not intuitive
  • need to have totals and percentages into one chart
  • use spotIQ within the liveboards
Large data sources to fast processing speeds onto a liveboard

It is our main BI tool. We use it to give our business users access to all kinds of data.
  • Makes it really easy for nontechnical users to access data.
  • Data models are more complex than other tools.
  • Missing niche features (like table calculations).
It is excellent if you want to give access to a tool to many people who aren't BI experts. We removed our BI teams as a dependency for most users to build out reports and access data. From an admin perspective, there are a handful of frustrations, but we can get over those. I would recommend a more advanced tool like Looker or Tableau if you want very advanced customization options and to build feature-packed dashboards.

I use Thoughtspot to enable self-serve analytics on pharmaceutical data.
Thouhtspot's USP is its ease of use for the end users and they get answers from their data in just a few clicks.
Plus, with the introduction of Thoughtspot sage, the Gen AI capabilities provides users with NLP capabilites on their data - which is great for business and HQ users (who are not so tech savvy).
Lastly, feature like SpotIQ provide users with automated analysis and insights on their data - which otherwise would have required some manual intervention from a technical user.
  • Ease of Use
  • Very Fast Querying on even huge datasets
  • Strong data modelling features
  • Customizability of the visualization/liveboards
  • Addition of support for more data warehouse systems
  • Option of creating data extracts
Thoughtspot is great for promoting data democracy to the end users (primarily business users).
It enables them to build simple visualizations and pin multiple of them together on a liveboard just by entering their queries in simple natural language.
But, for building more complex visualizations, Thoughtspot lags behind other (older) BI tools in the market - as it has relatively limited customizability options for visualizations as of now.

Real-time insights and very user-friendly to individuals who do not have excellent knowledge or experience around software management. Accessibility to users to design their reporting and dashboards is beneficial. Tracking data and performance is a plus for me and my colleagues using the software on related programs and projects being created.
  • Data configuration
  • Accessibility and security for data
  • Tracking and progress reports
  • Data does not always match
  • Better updating
  • lacking functionalities and limitations
Team support is great, and very useful if needed. The cloud production is awesome, my favorite part as mentioned previously is the accountability integrations with the dashboard and having useful recommendations around visualizations.

We were consulted by a State organization to analyse data collected through a wide scale user survey. Our mandate was to identify the most frequently quoted applications in calls to the Help Desk and understand their impact on overall satisfaction. After clustering by profile, data was imported into ThoughtSpot and relevant questions asked to generate answers as easy to interpret graphical representations.
  • Speed of execution
  • Meanigful statistical constructs
  • Experimental interactions wth data
  • Ease of stating questions in natural language
  • Legends to help interpret results to avoid biais
  • Sophisticated data modeling features (AFC for example)
Regularly, we need to analyse relationships between variables and represent them in a format easy to interpret by non statisticians. ThoughtSpot is of great help in this phase of the analysis to articulate insights backedup by graphical evidence.We are kless at ease with ThoughtSpot where mixed models are required (FC–AFC–FCA). Then we resort to specialised statistical packages (XLSTAT or SPSS).

we are using ThoughtSpot as a self service BI platform where we want our business users to create their own insights and deep dive into the data themselves and as a whole become more data driven company.
  • Generate great insights using spot IQ
  • needs very less technical knowledge so even an agent level employee can use it to generate insights
  • slice and dice data to whatever granular level is needed without creating any explicit hierarchies
  • more pixel perfect dashboarding
  • more option as compared to existing BI tools when it comes to look and feel
for any use case where you users needs immediate or frequent insights from the data.

In my organization we use ThoughtSpot to create management dashboards and reports. They include financial- and non financial KPI's.
This product improved the quality of our reports and dashboards. It's flexible and easy to use.
The main problem that we had with other software was the fact that we have multiple sources/databases. ThoughtSpot is able to link them al together but is still easy to use. Great product and easy to use.
  • Combine multiple sources / databases
  • Click and play / drag and drop -> ease to use
  • Cloud based so always available
  • Possible to work at the same time with multiple users
  • Quick and easy learning
  • More training video's for beginners
  • Example or standard reports to show what's possible
[ThoughtSpot is] easy to use. Lot's of possible thing you can do.
No problems combining multiple sources and/or databases.
Great performance.
Nice way to create dashboard and reports. Can handle both financial- and non financial KPI's.
This makes it possible to great the best reports for management and own use.

It's being used by one department to support many business units. The goal is to better understand when is the best time to contact customers for purchasing. This proves to be a bit difficult as it challenges you as a data analyst to choose the right input data for the software to ingest.
  • The interface is pleasing. Makes you feel like you have access to some future tech software you would see in a Bond film or something.
  • Their customer service has been top notch as far as I can tell.
  • When there are questions they are quick to respond or reach out to colleagues that might better know.
  • Better communicating the limitations of the software. It's not valuable to me to know that it's a sign of success that "purchased" is included in the data set for successful transactions.
  • Giving direction on data cleanliness could be improved.
Even though I am not in the contract discussions or know pricing, my understanding is that it is a very expensive product. I'm not certain we are ready to extract the value we should out of this relationship, yet. I believe that by improving our data set by including real-time data instead of just historic we could potentially be better at utilizing this product.

We had initially purchased it to embed a dashboard for external users, but currently are using it for product discovery work.
  • Thoughtspot allows users to easily access data for ad hoc reporting.
  • Great features including notifications, drilldowns, and search.
  • Easy user access management.
  • We ran into issues when it came to modeling our data because we have billions of rows of data.
  • Sometimes creating the calculations was difficult.
Thoughtspot is well-suited for users who want to access data easily and create reports on their own. It's good for nontechnical users after the data model is set up. Based on my experience, it may be helpful to have help with data modeling during the integration phase.

Our no-code AI platform turns unstructured data into structured content to enhance existing models, products, and BI. The current BI tools all lack certain features and ThoughtSpot was the perfect choice to embed within our product. The output from our platform, when visualized with ThoughtSpot is seen very clearly, resonates with our customers, and gives them flexibility into customizing if they so choose. The additional features & querying functionality in ThoughtSpot make it easy to navigate through our data and create visuals that answer the questions a user asks.
  • 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.
  • Drill down in a dashboard could be improved, with the ability to click around the various visuals to then filter down the entire dashboard (i.e., click on a date and all visuals reflect data from that date).
  • For some of the visuals, additional color representation would be nice in some cases. When working with the sentiment, sometimes a green to red gradient is desired by an end-user.
ThoughtSpot is well suited for: Embedding use cases Working with large volumes of data (>TBs) Use cases that involve lots of questions from an end-user, the search querying, and SpotIQ helps out here ThoughtSpot is not well suited for: Use cases that want an easier drill down/filtering with the visuals Users who want a word cloud of any kind.

ThoughtSpot is used to visualize outputs from NLP/AI use cases for our client. It helps to visualize output and show various trends to help clients make decisions with investment research, credit risk, ESG insights, and so on.
  • Clean UI, I like the UI as it looks very clean and modern.
  • Filters, ability to create custom filers and explore data underlying in tables.
  • 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.
Well suited for my clients for a Macro view of business insights, credit risk, ESG insights, etc. However, I think ThoughtSpot needs to make exploring underlying data easier, adding a feature where you can click on charts and filters will help users and especially business users to easily understand the granularities as well.

ThoughtSpot is a very important data analysis software for our company and department that has been used because it has been collaborating in deep and accurate analysis based on different graphs, databases, tables, and illustrative panels for business decision making. We have already had experience with several types of software of this type, but the ThoughtSpot software is the one that has more assertiveness in facts. Its level of customization is greatly improved in the interface and brings better quality in the presentation of results and reports. Technical support is another strong point because it has a fast and punctual service in solving the problem or question.
  • User-friendly and customizable interface.
  • Function to create personalized reports and rich in details of the analyzed data.
  • Very fast and accurate in the content filter.
  • Smart dashboard, graphs and tables to illustrate the information to the analyst.
  • Real time analysis.
  • Graphs are excellent ways of visualizing the data, but I feel like there are very few options available in terms of choice. It can be improved.
  • It's complex for beginners. Training or intensive is required to learn all the features and get the most out of the software.
It is a cloud software with great BI analysis and artificial intelligence capabilities and excellent real-time data analysis capabilities in graphs and dashboards and data export in reports. We recommend it to anyone interested in this kind of intelligent and accurate information analysis technology that can aid decision-making, business, and development. The insights we use are always reliable and help us every day. I recommend technical support because they always helped us to clear doubts about the software and features.

  • Business user friendly
  • AI powered tool

- Quick turn-around is required.
- Where more business analysts are involved.

We are trying to build the overall analytics in ThoughtSpot with different metrics and use cases. The purpose we bought in ThoughtSpot is to give access to external users for a better understanding of the reporting point. But we see there are a lot of limitations with the product where the analyst finds it difficult to show the pinboard as he wants to.
  • Its very fast in retrieving data
  • data model creation seems to be easy handled
  • search option is great
  • Need more vizualizations
  • Limitations in lot of cosmetic changes like font ,color etc
  • Drill down function have to be improved
Overall the product is very much fast and AI features are interesting. But need a lot of improvements as such in the product development, enable more options for cosmetic changes. Limitations in the pinboard need to be addressed like selector placement, rearranging the filters, more options for sizing of the answers in the pinboard.

We are utilizing ThoughtSpot to gain additional insight into our customer's characteristics and behaviors. ThoughtSpot is currently being used across our organization to help keep all employees educated on how our customers act, what our most popular items/pages are, looking at trends, etc. It's been a great tool thus far.
  • ThoughtSpot provides the ease of creating reports based on the metrics you're looking for.
  • I personally like how you can have a report template and then easily add new columns to your report based on your KPI's.
  • I like how you can add visual graphs to the pinboard and it's not just the data, but I also like that you can export the data into excel so you or your customer can manipulate the data to achieve the look and feel you're looking for.
  • There's not really anything that I don't like. In fact, I wish I had more access to the backend features (and not just our engineering team), so I could create even more reports.
Based on my personal use case and the access that I have, I would recommend ThoughtSpot. One of the advantages, besides the obvious, is I like how you can share your pinboard with other members of the company. This way you're not having to re-create the wheel every time a different user wants the same report, and then that user can even customize the report to exactly what they're looking for.

We evaluated ThoughSpot for a pilot to make market research/voice of the consumer data more accessible. The pilot did not launch, but ThoughtSpot was brought into our organization to be used with Snowflake to enhance our overall data access through the "data lake." It is being used by multiple departments but siloed on the IT and data science side.
  • It provides user-friendly access to complex analysis for those with limited program experience.
  • It has a fair pricing model with unlimited users that pay for the data processing usage.
  • It provides good customer service and partnership that's reliable and able to solve issues quickly.
  • I would appreciate easier access to test or pilots for implementation.
  • I would like a "lite" version for new or non-power users.
ThoughtSpot is great for mining data insights across data sets with ease. It is great for generating insights for single data sources as other tools can perform that same function. In today's world, however, the more data the better. Thoughtspot helps make those connections and makes it easier for less tech-savvy users to perform advanced analytics.

If you are building an embedded app, ThoughtSpot is a great solution. If you are looking for all of the nuanced BI features that you see in more mature BI tools, make sure ThoughtSpot has the features you need.
