What do you like best?
ThoughtSpot fits the sweet spot of total cost of ownership and ease of adoption. Once information is configured and curated, there is no required IT touch. Adoption is user-driven rather than IT pushed. The costing model is based on amount of data stored in ThoughtSpot. Even with AWS storage costs and as user adoption grows, there is no better cost per user BI application on the market.
What do you dislike?
Understanding the value proposition that ThoughtSpot offers, it is not focused on high-density, crisp visualization as other applications provide. There is a 5-10% use case that cannot be solved by ThoughtSpot. I am interested to see if this 5-10% use case fades away over the next few years.
Recommendations to others considering the product
Start with one instance and let business team members evangelize and lead adoption. Keep IT out of the way.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
My company needs to learn how to have a conversation with information, rather than to simply digest content delivered via static slide decks. ThoughtSpot is critical in changing the way we consume insight. As insight delivery moves from pull to push and the iteration questions can be answered more quickly, we will reach a spot where we are leading information rather than simply trying to keep up with it.
