Chartio

Cloud business intelligence & analytics for everyday users

4.5/5 (31 reviews)

Chartio Overview

Chartio enables companies to combine data sources from multiple systems and databases together without storing a copy of your data. Systems that are currently supported include PostgreSQL, MySQL, Amazon Redshift, Google BigQuery, Salesforce, Google Analytics, and Twilio.

Users are able to query data from each data source and combine them together into a single analysis or report. Chartio's intuitive interface enables any user to quickly and easily query data with its Chart Builder by using a drag and drop query generator or a SQL query editor (depending on user preference).

Chartio's Data Pipeline and Data Stores features allow users to build and store custom metrics, calculations, and data formats to generate the most meaningful data possible. Users can choose to display this information either in a table or by using Chartio's charting library for easier visual analysis.

Great choice for all our reporting and BI needs

From starting with very few and scattered reports to - after over three years - building all out multifacetted reporting for a strongly growing ecommerce business, Chartio has served us well. The tool keeps evolving and customer care and support has always been excellent :)

Pros

The framework is robust and performant, the platform allows for quick and insightful analyses as well as powerful report programming equally well which makes it a great bridge between solutions that anyone can setup and framworks that require more advanced programming skills.

Cons

There is room for improvement on the adaptability of some of the reports' design options.

Enterprise-grade BI for mid-market price and complexity

BI, visualization, SQL queries, Postgres visualization, BigQuery visualization

Pros

With Chartio, you can run from data to visualization in seconds, even if you don't know SQL. Chartio has a visual editor, clear and easy joins and table keys, a huge range of preconfigured data sources, and easy dashboard and folder management. Chartio is also one of the few, if not the only BI tool that can be embedded into your app and managed through tokens or SAML authentication. All in all, expect professional grade BI power without the cost or complexity.

Cons

Cons are limited for Chartio. I found no issues with the querying or visualization itself, but did run into issues clarifying errors or linking data correctly. We also struggled to auto-refresh schemas, which in an environment where schemas change constantly, means a refresh cycle every week.

Chartio shows us key information for our partners to see and compare our numbers with other vendors. It has been great and the partner seems to love it. However, I feel it can be better in so many ways for the user to find it easier to use.

Pros

I liked the many boards you can create with numerous amount of data within them. You can also organize them properly to be pretty to the eye.

Cons

It is hard to program and sometimes frustrating to set everything up.

    Chartio Main Features

    Visually Analyze Data

    Using the Data Pipeline, users can grab information from any cloud-based data source that’s attached to their Chartio accounts. Chartio gives users the option to use a drag-and-drop interface, for less technical users, or an SQL interface. The SQL interface is most useful for users with technical backgrounds. With this same feature, users can apply Excel-like functions to create new metrics and calculations for analysis or charting.

    Chartio’s Data Pipeline allows users to start making sense of their organization’s data. Users can switch between basic tables and more sophisticated data visualizations, and use filters to break data down into more manageable chunks. Chartio’s “no-limits interface” allows users to drill down into charts with minimal configuration.

    Drag & Drop Interface

    Join Data Sources

    Data Stores allow the user to join data sources using multiple layers, and apply transformations, using the Data Pipeline interface to create new data sources. Users can blend disparate data, perform complex calculations, add custom columns, and join unrelated tables with absolutely no programming required.

    Data sources can be blended within your browser using Chartio’s web-based tools. Users can merge various types of data with a few clicks, and then chart the results of your actions automatically. Visit Chartio’s library of formulas to dig even deeper into your data. Chartio allows the user to create their own columns, divide, and multiply data, all from within the browser.

    Calculations

    Share Dashboards

    Dashboards can be used to track virtually any metric over time. For example, organizations can create company revenue dashboards and sales dashboards. Chartio’s dashboards work on any device, including smartphones, tablets, and desktop computers. Chartio users can subscribe to PDF reports of dashboards over email, which is a useful way to keep clients up-to-date.

    Chartio funnels data into dashboards in real-time, based on the freshest information possible. As the user, you have the option to set permissions to control who has access to your data. You can also opt to share data with clients or bosses through scheduled email reports.

    Collaborate with Colleagues

    Users can set up permissions for their own organization’s account, deciding which colleagues should be setup as Admins. Teammates can easily be invited to collaborate on a project. Because Chartio is so user-friendly, users don’t have to worry about colleagues needing a technical backgrounds to understand the data they’ve been asked to review.
