Frequently Asked Questions
Questions that often come up when looking for Tableau Alternatives
There are many factors to consider. Here are a few to keep in mind:
Scalability: Regardless of whether you're a young startup on the rise or a big enterprise company, you want a platform with both the features and the pricing to scale as your use of the tool grows.
ETL (Data preparation): Does the platform you are look at require you to move all your data to a data warehouse first with ETL? For some this can be a dealbreaker. Knowi uses data virtualization to avoid this pitfall, so it can natively access your data where it is without needing ETL.
Strong data delivery: You may need your BI tool to schedule reports to send those reports through email, webhooks, or Slack. If this is something you need, make sure the BI tool you are looking at supports it.
Who will be using the tool: For the people working with the data most, they will need to be able to understand the platform in a fairly intuitive way. Some training is always required, but a well designed platform with search-based analytics can speed up that process greatly.
Security and sharing: Data is one of the most valuable resources a company has. But it's also important to be able to share that data and the dashboards and visualizations with other people in the company and occasionally external partners. That's why you want a BI tool that has robust security, but also has easy to use sharing features.
There are a lot of options out there. Knowi, PowerBI, Qlik, Google Data Studio. What will work well for you often depends on your particular use-case.
