Overall Satisfaction with Google Data Studio

I use Google Data Studio on daily basis. By using that we can figure out how many people use our systems, how many people want to play, how much they spend. We can easily do comparison analysis. We use all analytical metrics to provide it our managers to make a decision.
  • It is online service. You don't need to upload an application to use it and it's free.
  • It has many visualization tools.
  • You can use many data sources to connect your data with Data Studio. For example Google Analytics, Google Sheets are among most popular choices for users.
  • It is not that easy to learn Data Studio without tutorials and as I know Google don't have video lessons for Data Studio.
  • Sometimes Data Studio can't differentiate metrics from dimensions.
  • Charts sometimes don't work properly. You need to reload them again to fix errors.
  • It helped us to understand in which countries our bonuses work better and where they don't work.
  • We reallocated our financial resources more effectively due to Google Data Studio
We selected Google Data Studio because it is easier to make connections with third-party data sources. Also Google Data Studio can understand connections between different tables and databases better that its competitors such as Power BI. Compared to Power BI you do not need to upload and install an application to use it.

Yes

Did implementation of Google Data Studio go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Google Data Studio again?

Yes

When you want to create something really fast and meaningful Google Data Studio is one of the best choices you have. You can use different charts that will express your ideas in the best way. If you have a lot of time to prepare a project for management and if you have Power BI or Tableau, it is better to use one of these applications because they will offer you much more flexibility.
