Periscope Overview

What is Periscope?

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.

Easy to use

I have enjoyed sharing videos easily and quickly with many people at once.

Periscope was amazing in its time

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. And whenever a problem happened someone was there to help remediate the issue.

Why I use Periscope

Periscope has been my saving grace by introducing me to an awesome online community of broadcasters. It affords me the opportunity to engage in scopes which have helped to build me personally and professionally. I cannot go a day without being on Periscope.

Great way to connect with people using a live webcam

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.

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.

Pros

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.

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. I go live from around the country in an effort to connect students as well as family and friends to my summer travels, so there are moments where people can comment and be inappropriate. You want the ability to interact, so this is the downside.

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).
