Overall Satisfaction with ThoughtSpot
ThoughtSpot is currently being used by my department and not the whole organization. I work for an insurance client and am responsible for data analytics and visualization. Graphs and other visualizations provide a clearer understanding of what the data says and this is where ThoughtSpot comes in. My clients are trying to move completely to ThoughtSpot for any visualization requirements.
- ThoughtSpot is great at using artificial intelligence to give some automated insights from data.
- ThoughtSpot allows you to source data from multiple data stores like Redshift, Excel, etc.
- Querying on ThoughtSpot is super easy.
- It provides a wide variety of visualization.
- Since ThoughtSpot is not widely used, there are very few tutorials.
- ThoughtSpot needs to include a lot more customization in their visualizations.
- Sometimes, ThoughtSpot is buggy and clients need to contact their support to resolve issues.
- ThoughtSpot has reduced the overall cost of my clients for their visualization requirements.
- Since it charges on basis of storage, it pushes the developers to optimize the data as much as they can.
- Sometimes, the buggy nature of ThoughtSpot results in failure of pinboards.
In my opinion, a fledgling can pick up ThoughtSpot in about 3 to 4 weeks. This can be optimized by putting in more hours.
Since querying on ThoughtSpot is super easy, it does not take a lot of time for users to respond to ad-hoc tasks.
ThoughtSpot is super user-friendly, however, being new in the market, it has a long way to go and lots of new features to be added.
We use Redshift as a data warehouse and ThoughtSpot helps us directly connect it to Redshift clusters and get data to the frontend quickly.

ThoughtSpot is by far the best BI tool for business users who are not that tech-savvy. Since querying is super easy and very intuitive, users can get insights in no time. It also supports natural language processing for querying data which takes it a step ahead of other tools. Since ThoughtSpot only charges you based on the storage you use, it helps reduce costs as well. ThoughtSpot lags behind when a user requires a lot of customization in their visualizations. It also does not have a free version for users to try and see for themselves.
