Future of Self Serve Analytics

What do you like best?
Super easy to create front end analytical dashboards for naive users unlike the any other tool in the market, this tool is easier to learn, especially for business users.Apart from this, this is also delivering the data fastest as well, then leading visualization software available. Few tricks and twiks, this tool has all the capabilities of leading BI reporting tools in the market.
What do you dislike?
Setting up the data needs a full fledged data expert who also has complete data architecture knowledge of all the systems of an organization. In addition to this, it also would take up large amount of time to setup the design flow, which could be cumbersome task and lead to confusions for the users as well. For small companies and start ups it could be disguise because of the time consumption it takes before one can actually do any reporting.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
As they say, reporting is underlying need to run and grow exponentially any business successfully. Basics problem we are trying to solve here using this tool is self service analytics for users and minimizing any kind of dependencies on technical teams for creating advanced analytical dashboards.
Once data setup is done for an organization (which could take big amount time) and users are in the systems they could be given a quick demos and training on the usage of this tool, business users can create perfectly and fine tunes reporting dashboards.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Unless you are full fledged organization and willing invest good amount money and time, I would recommend using other leading tools

Solid tool with a wide array of data points

  • April 10, 2020
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Huge variation in data inputs. Comprehensive. Decent amount of visualizations. Plugged-in well with most Microsoft Office tools that were used. Highly customizable and very reliable compared to most other data anlaytics tools I've used, even others within the same role I performed.
What do you dislike?
Slow load time after changing data streams and filters being used. I Could have done with more suggestions and guidance or some form of best practices & automated analysis.

It's a big ask, but some basic AI or correlation metrics and signals would have been a massive business value-add and delivered untold hours spent working with the tool on an ad hoc basis.

At Walmart, there was an entire program of specialists who would start most days checking Thoughtspot data and parse through tables and information. The business value and customer retention would accelerate if Thoughtspot was able to deliver a small handful of actionable insights, outliers and anomalies that the program picks out programmatically.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I no longer use the tool but it gave significantly better clarity and visibility into what was driving sales performance and customer preferences. It's pretty clear what the main value of Thoughtspot is: ingest and organize data, then give maximum flexibility to adjust the data to whatever situation or granularity needed.

In short, solid and descriptive statistics around what drove business.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Create and save boards with information that you have decided is impactful. Don't get caught in the weeds of endless data.

What do you like best?
Easy to use and navigate, it will allow the end-user to get straightforward answers.
What do you dislike?
I cannot say a lot of dislike, perhaps if the application can be used in all browsers it will be good.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Answers for end-user.
Because it uses Linux, it is easy to manage in the back-end.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Certification would be good.
