Best way to see your data

2019-12-10

Mode allows us to get concrete answers about how our customers are using our product. The data visualization is a key player in sales, product, marketing, and customer support in our organization,

Pros

Their charting and reporting tools are super powerful, and generate great dashboards and reports.

Cons

Really just some minor UI annoyances, but nothing that would prevent me from recommending the software.

Good for operative reporting but not as well as bi tool.

2019-12-17

Small companies without any reporting tool is good to start.

Pros

Also is good subscription by email (or other methods) and great to use python to create some sophisticated analysis.

Cons

If you are looking for operative reporting or EDA is a good solution but if your final users don't know SQL and wats to do some analysis with data like: drag a drop dimensions measures from data mart and build their own analysis, use "drill down", use some sophisticated filters (or/and) or analysis to compare two sets of data,... it has a great way to go.

Nice platform for people doing data analysis on a daily basis

2020-05-03

It would be a must have for Data scientists / analysts producing analysis / reports for executives / BI teams.

Pros

You can also easily request different Datasets coming from different sources (MySQL, PostgreSQL, Hive, Impala, Aurora, Google BigQuery...) via the same SQL queries.

Cons

When your are creating / editing reports, you need to have good knowledge of SQL/Data queries.

Mode Reporting Review

2019-12-16

Mode allows a easy to use reporting solution that is under source control and allows for all levels of the organization to use it effectively from analyst to a developer.

Pros

I have used a lot of different reporting products and there is always a big pain point in putting the reports into source control and easily understanding what dependencies each report has to various data sources. Mode makes this so easy, and allows me to quickly change data sources from a code editor across many reports.

Cons

It would be nice if you could define connections from an API.

Great tool for daily data analysis

2019-12-20

It is a great place to start for your data analysis requirements

Pros

I like that in a single place I would be able to query data from multiple data sources, visualize them through charts/tables and if needed create python notebooks for further analysis.

Cons

Inability to visualize map data.

Great product that keeps getting better

2019-12-11

Plus, we use the dashboards to run daily meetings and have daily emails sent out with key metrics.

Pros

I like the ease of use and the fact that they keep improving the visualizations so it's becoming a one stop shop for analytics.

Cons

Otherwise they just re-run the same old reports.

Amazing tool for a data-driven company

2019-12-17

It has helped us make key data-driven business decisions in our first years of growth - without it we would be flying blind.

Pros

The UI is clean and simple.

Cons

It can work out quite pricey if you have a lot of casual/read only users.

Solves the problems we need it to

2019-12-23

Reporting that is real time or on a scheduled basis in order to provide insights has been helpful in streamlining day-to-day activities that are data dependent.

Pros

For example, when our clients call and ask a common question, the team can immediately run a Mode report and provide the answer in real time, leading to a simple business process and effective solution for the client.

Cons

Organizing reports was hard to manage, and we had many legacy reports from past colleagues that had no context unless the user opened the report, which became time consuming.

Great Software for Automated and Self-Serve

2020-02-06

Jobs don't fail (cough TOAD cough), reporting and visualizing is so much easier now.

Pros

Democratization of data - allowing users to self-serve and pull data on their own without having to know how to write queries/scripts/the like.

Cons

The fact that all new reports are created by default in your own personal area as opposed the desired location where you created the report in the first place.

Mode is a powerful tool for your business

2019-12-10

All of our production reports and alerting happen through Mode and it hasn't ever let us down.

Pros

- You can query database tables directly using SQL - The visualizations are easy to set up and beautiful - you can literally style ANYTHING on your report using CSS, Javascript, and HTML - the Python notebook is powerful and easy to use, you can use Plotly along with a whole bunch of other great libraries for working with data. - There is a Mode API so you can use report results in tools like zapier to help build alerting around your business metrics - flexable parameterization for reports

Cons

This is minor, but the UI can get the tiniest bit glitchy, on occasion.

Great adaptable software

2019-12-16

I use more to pull and clean data and to create dashboards. Though sometimes it is hard to get the software to do exactly what I want for the dashboards, with the help of customer service I'm usually able to find creative solutions to get to what I need.

Pros

Customer service is great. They get back to me with answers very quickly and are thorough in their responses.

Cons

Some of the built-in reporting tools (e.g. pivot table) are quite limited.

Great for sharing data

2019-12-16

The notebook interface is much faster and more stable (it could still be snappier and closer to 'native', but it's much much better), and the plotting abilities are much more flexible and nice to look at.

Pros

My team gets a lot of random last-minute inbound requests for analytics regarding different parts of our research program, and Mode really makes it easy to make that data available and re-generable for the leadership teams who make those requests.

Cons

Some analytics, like almost-automatic chart and table generation using SQL queries, are streamlined in a way I find confusing and hard to use.

White Label Imbeds fit perfectly into our software.

2019-12-23

And overall, our analytics stack has a very predictable cost structure.

Pros

We love Mode's ability to push analytics into Slack for internal analytics.

Cons

It would have been nice to have beautiful pivot grids and data grids out-of-the-box.

Very happy with Mode

2019-12-20

For my needs (and my team) it has been very useful to use mode to analyze snapshots of production data to get more insight into problems and to work out the scope of fixes/migrations needed to address issues.

Pros

As a developer I like being able to write SQL to help analyze problems and also create reports/charts to visualize trends/issues based on our warehouse of production data.

Cons

The charting is useful but it would be nice to be able to iterate/switch through chart types a little more easily (without sometimes having to start over when dimensions/measures are reset).

Fundamental to our business

2019-12-19

Pros

There's a lot of variety and options as far as visuals are concerned and the product seems flexible enough to work with most, if not all of our applications.

Cons

I find it sometimes confusing to navigate and find reports. Would benefit from a nested folder structure for improved organization of reports.

Drops that data on your plate like breakfast in bed

Compiling what we need in concise reports improves our team's daily functions.

Pros

Daily data report drops into my inbox helps our Ops team triple their efficiency when it comes to follow-ups.

Cons

Excellent Query Tool / Embedded BI

2019-12-17

We needed a centralized query tool, as well as a tool that provides BI capabilities.

Pros

Security First - It's clear to us that security a primary consideration for all features they roll out High Customizability - we are able to skin our reports as we'd like Great Integrations - we post reports to Slack, via API, etc. Usability - it's extremely easy to use

Cons

White-Label Feature doesn't seem to be a priority, as it doesn't get frequent updates

Pros

Lots of visualizations to use, easy for non-technical people on our team to use it.

There is an issue with PDF exporting cutting off tables and visualizations and i have been asking for it to be fixed for almost a month now and no one has fixed it.
