At first we were attracted by the simple pricing model per event streamed that Keen was providing and it worked well for a while.
BUT after a while we were forced to change the pricing model per property scanned instead which suddenly brought the cost up to 10 times what it was !
The idea itself is good. Its support team genuinely wants to help. But they don't.
Creating a graph is extremely easy - I think they have misunderstood their desired use case though because most people don't want to create one graph but have a solid metric system. Creating things like cached queries lack extensive documentation and just DON'T work.
It took me 1 hour to set up one graph. Then it took me 1 month+ to setup a dashboard. It was about $15,000 in salaries, and a lot of idle time just waiting for a response. It really slows down the process.
Our graphs were often empty and even their engineers didn't know what was wrong. They advised us to change parts of our code that at the end of the day, didn't fix it. If their own engineers don't know how to make it work, how can WE?!
🤮avoid at all costs.
Product is pretty good. All other things considered, I would not have an issue with the product.
I was overcharged, and Keen.io refused to provide a billing breakdown. They cannot give you any information to help you understand why you're seeing a 1,000% increase in charges with no increased utilization. Had to cancel the account and revoke keys, and cancel my credit card.
