WHY THOUGHTSPOT?

ThoughtSpot is the world’s first relational search engine and has trailblazed a new area of BI and Data Analytics called Search BI. It differs from the current genre of more established BI tools like Tableau in that it allows a business user to simply begin typing what they want into the search box and then ThoughtSpot à la Google offers completions of the search and produces instant results. Some sample potential searches that a business user might issue include: New customers by region and month, outstanding payments due by customer profile, trended average for sales by quarter, non-renewals by month in zip code 01886.  Anyone can use ThoughtSpot with zero training to ask questions, analyze company data, and build reports and dashboards – all in seconds.  ThoughtSpot combines data from on-premises, cloud data sources, spreadsheets, and Hadoop, can scale to billions of rows, and can be deployed in hours.
