ThoughtSpot: Easy installation and immediate application

ThoughtSpot is extremely easy to use from a frontend perspective. With that said, it does take training and time to adapt to the UI. If you don't have proper synonyms established, then asking questions may be difficult if you don't know how the data is stored. For example, in order to ask a question, you have to know what the column is called where that particular piece of information is stored. Some users in our organization don't necessarily know how the data is broken down. Therefore, we have to spend a significant amount of time thinking about how to best utilize the synonyms so that executive-level users can ask natural language questions.

The UI is very clean, easy to use and navigate. The performance is very good, quick. Performance for us has not been a concern since we deployed the product initially, nor have we had to initiate any performance-related (hardware) upgrades. That is a key contributor to the usability of this product. Our ability to link it with our application seamlessly is also a plus.

When the tool is being explained, it's constantly compared against other tools out in the market, like Tableau, etc. ThoughtSpot needs to make its own space in the market to create unique visibility.

A user unfamiliar with databases and data structures can simply come in and ask a question and get the answer they are looking for. For that reason alone I would give it a high rating. It is blazing fast in providing the answers. Faster in orders of magnitude than anything else on the market

ThoughtSpot is very intuitive to use. The UX/UI (user experience and user interface) is very plain and easy to use. It looks like it was modeled after Google (fast but pretty plain). The "drillable", "exclude from result", and "show underlying data" are, in my opinion, the most powerful features. Overall rating is great.

At least in our case, there is a lot of work to do before ThoughtSpot can be used more frequently and widely across the organization. The underlying data integration and data preparation work is NOT handled by ThoughtSpot. However, ThoughtSpot does provide a very fast query engine that is faster and more reliable than multi-tiered BI systems.

Our business data is very complex and would require more effort to have the underlying data set up properly in order the search to be meaningful.

It would require change of culture to adopt the new analytical search in the day-to-day functions, as existing reports still seem to be the preferred choice.

ThoughSpot does a good job of following Steve Job's philosophy about not requiring a user manual. The interface is crisp, clean and very simple to use. The performance is lightening fast. Users are given curated data which is vetted by the data owners, hence the chances of getting wrong answer are very low.

User experience has been well designed. It doesn't take very long to get the system up and running for initial use - the support offered by ThoughtSpot is very responsive because of the focus of the company to make their users/customers successful.
