Overall Satisfaction with ThoughtSpot

Great in search-based interfaces and AI insights. Areas of improvement would be in security integration, mobile, and migration aspects.
Used by multiple departments. Serves as a self-service reporting platform for users to find useful insights with data, especially using search keywords in an intuitive way. Great for analysts to quickly gather data and glean insights for both reconciliation and key business decisions.
  • Fast data searches
  • Spot IQ is great for automated insights and data discovery
  • Could be more robust in different visualization types and customization
  • Could provide an easier way to validate data in the form of queries
  • Migrating between environments could be refined
  • Helped analysts quickly gather data and discover insights
  • Search interface has helped bridge the gap between business and technical users
On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate it high in the 8’s.
Yes, once the data is in TS, creating on the fly reports and leveraging automated insights using IQ have significantly helped in reducing development time and being proactive on addressing issues upfront.
Well suited for analysts and end users who are data aware. Not great for canned reports. Integrating into other applications with security layers is not very intuitive and has room for improvement.
