Solid BI Tool, but difficult to use

2019-04-22

Really good tool, but not a big fan of usability. ( I am an end user, not building my own SQL reports).

Pros

The tool also runs pretty quick no matter how much data/graphs you run in a dashboard.

Cons

The filtering should be set up similar to Google Analytics with pre-set fields e.g. data ranges compared to date ranges in the past.

Great tool for those with SQL know how

2018-01-18

Greater flexibility, control, and freedom with data.

Pros

I like the speed and streamlined SQL language it enables. It has a great interface and customer support is fantastic.

Cons

SQL knowledge is required so this is not meant for the casual business user (though SQL experts can create dashboards for business users to monitor).

We use periscope to track individual and team performance

2018-08-01

Pros

It is easy to navigate and provides helpful statistics. It is much more user friendly than the dashboard we previously used in Salesforce.

Cons

However, I have not devoted the time to figure out what Periscope can offer.

Overall a good software, I would argue if such engineering is needed.

2018-06-28

Pros

Periscope has a really good UI/UX they provide everything you need and without being lost.

Cons

The multiple dashboards that start being created within the company can sometimes become difficult to manage and I think some improvements on the UX of that part could come in handy a long way.

It helps make data transparent and accessible to all members of the team.

2018-01-10

Pros

In addition, the visualization and aesthetics have been done well, making the data is a lot more presentable to users.

Cons

The pivot table functions are somewhat limited, so if I wanted to create columns in the pivot table that contain processed data from other columns, I would have to do that in the query itself.

Outdated Tool

2018-05-11

Pros

This was the first of its time and the ability to interact with celebrity and influencers was a great tool.

Cons

This was great when it first came on the scene, but as other social platforms incorporated their own native live streaming platforms, this became obsolete.

Perfect data visualizer for any size business!

2018-01-11

Very useful data visualizations to help me and my team analyze data faster and more effectively.

Pros

The way we are able to manipulate our data and visualize in different ways allows my team to be more efficient and decisive when it comes to analyzing performance and executing on our strategies.

Cons

The SQL code used to parse database rows can be a little technical to get used to, but any business with a developer should be able to pick it up in no time.

Pretty cool live video streaming service

2019-05-23

Overall it’s been ok minus the occasional dropping of video because of signal sometimes when it’s crowded.

Pros

I liked that it is an interactive live streaming service where viewers can participate by showing love and leaving comments. It does what it’s supposed to do.

Cons

Maybe the platform could be a little more user friendly when searching different videos.

I use periscope to view production data and perform SQL queries.

2018-03-15

I highly recommend periscope for giving members of your organization access to the data they need.

Pros

It's really easy to view what tables are available and perform queries against them.

Cons

The displayed results can look a bit crowded, and I am not a fan of how it gives row numbers all the time. It should give an option to reduce the padding in the tables and turn off the numbering.

Periscope was amazing in its time

2019-10-03

I was at an adtech company running millions of reads and writes a month and we needed insight into our data. At the time periscope was the most robust option.

Pros

Ease of use, caching features, and customer support were all top notch. Absolutely nothing to complain about besides the price point. If you are well funded, you will not be

Cons

The price point is very steep if you are a startup or if you wanted to use Periscope for a home project.

Quick, simple, not updated

2018-04-30

Pros

Periscope is simple and easy to use and go live with.

Cons

With other platforms like facebook live and twitter videos, it is a bit outdated and the need for another app is not necessary.

Social media app with room for improvement

2018-05-23

Pros

This app is really user friendly, it's easy to use it and it also has a nice visual environment that makes things easy to do.

Cons

I think it's part of its nature, but it could be nice to know whether a user is active or you are only looking at what they have done so far but without time reference.

Great product, but a little pricey

2019-03-16

Pros

It does require tech talent to configure and connect to the appropriate data sources (as I would expect).

Cons

The cost is high and while there are many great features some could not be included based on negotiating with the sales rep. Be sure you know exactly what isn't included in the cost.

Emphasis on Simple, Intuitive Analytics

2018-05-07

The downside in the setup is time consuming and may not always meet business and engineering constrains.

Pros

The software makes it very easy to build out intuitive charts in an agile manner.

Cons

It took too long to get started on our initial setup. Backend configuration took much longer than expected and required more engineering resources than we'd initially accounted for.

Great way to connect with people using a live webcam

2018-06-28

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.

Pros

It's so easy! You pull up the application, you select go live, and then you are connected with the planet.

Cons

The fact that anyone can comment can be more than an annoyance. As a teacher there are some things that you can't control and ugly or profane comments are a constant concern.
