Overall Satisfaction with Google Charts

Currently, the company is trying to implement Google Charts to build dashboards for the intranet reporting services website. We started the design by selecting Google Charts as a competitor for Microsoft Power BI, which is our current BI tool to set out the charts and dashboards. The main issue overseeing is that Google Charts needs the IT development skill set to integrate the demands of the business and the initial dashboards of the main production keystones of the different units of the organization. We really think this new solution can leverage the desire to build reports with the highest level of customization.
  • Variety of Charts templates
  • Allows me to make design changes from the very root code to the string of data source
  • Allows working with dashboards with multiple charts within it.
  • Google Charts is running a desktop app with the editor for HTML customized views will grant to the end user an endpoint tool likewise it's close competitor Power BI Desktop
  • If the end user is self-paced learner will need to read from the very HTML 5 & SVL basics to how to use the codes developed to load them up on as an embedded object.
  • A friendlier step by step how to guide for every single chart template.
Google Charts allowed me to introduce customize dashboard that was well received by my company steering team and also left me the option to send reports that can be easily sent over our intranet website reducing the amount of time invested working within those resources and then trying to publish them as quickly as the needed them.
Depends on 100% of your queries and with the API's that you selected and also from the very expertise of the end user regarding the settings that you want to add to its report or dashboard. Several other indicators like connectivity health and ports set for this connection might affect the performance of the drop down settings.
You can customize the access and secure list for the end user that you might want to add or exclude for certain views that allows you be granular at the moment of sharing and sending information to your collaborators, the reports can be sent as quickly as you can imagine with the right set up and access list to those report that you want to share you can send them whenever you want where ever you are.
Google Charts can fit in your company if you're seeking a resource that can be managed, customized and also deployed all over the web, mobile apps or just add as an embedded object within your website or intranet resources. Can do awesome things for Finance entrepreneurs who wanted to take out the most from reports, dashboards with statistical analysis with a wide data source.

For those who don't like web coding, or just get upset by handling crossing information from sheets to databases, this won't be the tool that fits with the business readiness that you might seek with IT developers that can understand the requirements wanted to be shown by Google Chart.
