The ability to integrate with a great variety of data sources
Pros and Cons
  • "The ability to integrate with a great variety of data sources."
  • "The ability to design complex data models and equations."
  • "Insisting on forums, blogs and community outreach in communications, and posting videos on an established calendar would be useful."

What is our primary use case?

The product is very simple and easy to use, even if you have no experience in analysis or BI, which was the case in this company.

How has it helped my organization?

This is a great tool if your organization leverages other sets of Google tools and needs some quick ideas that are a prettier and more interactive than Google Analytics.

What is most valuable?

The ability to integrate with a great variety of data sources and the ability to design complex data models and equations.

What needs improvement?

Insisting on forums, blogs and community outreach in communications, and posting videos on an established calendar would be useful. Nowadays, people are visual or audio or even both in terms of acquiring new knowledge.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

Valuable features include advanced integrated analysis and easy implementation
Pros and Cons
  • "Valuable features include advanced integrated analysis and easy implementation."
  • "Panels are not as easy to use as other data extraction UIs."
  • "It's not yet a replacement for a complete BI tool."

What is our primary use case?

We have used Google Data Studio with Google Analytics to better view our information.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution is a powerful way to have several tools integrated at one location and convert data into beautiful reports that can be easily edited and viewed.

What is most valuable?

  • Collaboration and social BI
  • Advanced integrated analysis
  • Easy implementation
  • Manager

What needs improvement?

All panels, although they are easy to navigate once you have a clear understanding of the software, are not as easy to use as other data extraction UIs. Although you can start with basic Google tools education, you will need a solid explanation of data extraction.

If you do not have a complete BI tool, evaluate if your organization will have the need for one in the future. I'm sure Data Studios will grow and expand in the future, but it's not yet a complete replacement.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.
