Periscope overview

Periscope Data is a data analysis tool that unifies business data across multiple different sources. The solution connects directly with databases and enables users to instantly run, visualize, and share analyses on billions of rows of data. Features include an in-browser SQL editor, dashboarding, ad hoc-querying, and data cache, as well as automatic reporting and embedding for rapid sharing and data analysis.

Periscope serves data analysts, business analysts, data scientists, and decision makers who are looking to efficiently analyze large data sets. The solution securely queries databases from the cloud over an SSL JDBC connection, and creates charts and dashboards for the entire team. The advanced SQL editor includes autocomplete, revision history, query formatting, and universal syntax helpers for various database SQL dialects.

Periscope provides organizations with end-to-end workflow optimization and instant data visualization. The integrated charting workflow eliminates jumping between tools, and generates multiple charts for the team dashboard within moments. Users can pick from table, map, or scatter plot view, and customize charts for presentable insights. Curated analysis can be saved for reuse, including complete revision history and rollback.

Users are able to schedule email reports, share secure links to interactive Periscope dashboards, as well as embed charts and dashboards directly to their website. Filters can be added to shared dashboards so that recipients can filter data and drill down for themselves. Periscope enables organizations to automatically cache their data for much faster queries, cross-database joins and more.

It allows me to connect with students live from around the country or world for that matter. It's an incredible opportunity that expands on Facebook Live for instance that allows for more interaction. It's a great piece of technology that becomes a tool instead of a crutch. It's so easy! You pull up the application, you select go live, and then you are connected with the planet. It doesn't cost anything which is a big plus. The ability to connect and interact with students, family, and friends is a remarkable opportunity. The picture quality is sufficient.

It's a really robust tool to visualize data sets as a marketer. Pretty easily to manipulate as someone that doesn't know too much about coding.
