Overall Satisfaction with ThoughtSpot
I think there are a lot of opportunities for ThoughtSpot, as its story is up and coming and growing. ThoughtSpot is a great tool that can be able to be disruptive in self-service analytics.
We recently started using ThoughtSpot as a reseller/partner in Germany. My first experience, when I started about 2 months ago, was kind of poor. As I'm working with ETL Tools the majority of the time, I was still missing the possibility for data preparation. But on further review, I could gain more knowledge and experience through the back-end of ThoughtSpot. I hope to learn more about specific use cases where a significant added value can be generated.
- Not a substitute for other software yet
- Allowed easy and fast decision making
It depends on whether the data has been prepared and loaded before. Visualizations are generated really fast within the user interface. if the admin distributed the relevant data to the responsible people appropriately, data insights can be evaluated even faster.
Answers can be given in real-time with high performance and speed. The high level of accuracy is impressive, but depends, like always, on the raw data.
If you have a pre-built data warehouse with well structured data, ThoughtSpot can be easily and quickly built up. For huge data sets that are not well transformed, it is pretty hard to load it into ThoughtSpot. Additionally, ThoughtSpot is more appropriate for non-technical users as Front-End Usability is easy. It allows for fast decision making for real language questions without having knowledge about the raw data.
