The tool is easy to use if you know what you are doing and looking for. I know as they work towards improvements and simple language it will become even easier, but as of now they are doing a great job but there is room for improvement.

There are a few things that can be improved.
For now you still need some support to get started. Would be nice to see a product that's so easy to use, that you can get started without any help. Maybe also include a tutorial to get people started even quicker.

I think there is potential but I/We are not ready to extract it from my experience. We do have one colleague that is leaps and bounds above the rest of us but he is generally hamstrung with the business problem not aligning with the data set available.

I give it this rating because I have been the admin of the tool for over a year. It is very easy to pick up and use once you are familiar with how it works. Getting users trained and comfortable with the tool has been the main headache that I've encountered.

I think ThoughtSpot's interface is very user-friendly, and makes complex analysis quite easy with it's capabilities (i.e. Drill down and SpotIQ).
