Overall Satisfaction with Treasure Data

Treasure Data is being used by our R&D department essentially as a data lake. Treasure Data allowed us significantly easier access to large amounts of data, without having a team dedicated directly to its management.
  • Data ingestion
  • Multiple types of query tools
  • Flexible structure
  • Biggest spot of improvement would be the help system
  • One big impact Treasure Data had was it allowed us to reallocate engineering resources. The net was positive for us.
  • Depending on the amount of data ingested monthly, the cost for Treasure Data could be high for some companies.
We did not go real far down the path of evaluation of BigQuery.
From our experience, Treasure Data is perfect for capturing large amounts of data and allowing smaller teams the ability to access that data like any other database. Larger organizations might have the ability to recreate in-house.
