Panoply gets the job done!

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: The support team behind Panoply is very helpful. We've used the on-site chat function to get immediate help. We've also submitted questions through traditional routes like email. All of which were answered quickly.

Pros:

The speed to solution is a big win for us. We were able to get a full data pipeline up in running in less than half a day. That's with various data sources and incremental refresh. The UI is easy to use.

Cons:

There aren't really any cons. The platform is in its infancy and I can tell that the team is listening to user feedback and already making updates.

Excellent starting option for data warehousing

4.0 2 years ago

Comments: Was the foundation of my last company's BI pipeline and served us very well. Now they are going through a painful migration from the old Redshift servers to BigQuery and the cost has tripled. Before I left I was undergoing a migration to BigQuery natively and skipping Panoply as it began to add complexity for us rather than take it away.

Pros:

Very simple to set up and manage. Still all the core functionality you need in a warehouse

Cons:

The built in data connectors could be buggy. Particularly Google Analytics with multiple accounts. Integrating with Google Data Studio was also frustrating as we couldn't find a way to share dashboards within our workspace.

Customer service is great until you cancel

3.0 3 years ago

Comments: Decent product, overpriced for it's function, the support team and customer service team need to get their act together.

Pros:

We used Panoply to ingest DynamoDB data and send it to the analytics platform for intellegence. The software worked and functioned fine, our we had a simple use case, but it never failed us.

Cons:

The pricing was really steep for our simple use case and didn't bring the value that the price tag suggests. Ultimately we found a service that is 40% the cost that suites our needs. When I went to cancel there is no unsubscribe button, I had to hunt for a cancellation email address. After going back and forth with the director of customer service, I finally got it cancelled. However, they threw a 30-day notice clause at us causing us to pay an extra 50 days for a product we are not using. Really bad form in my opinion.

Hi Matt, Thank you for your review. We value feedback from all of our customers. I am glad that you had a good experience with our platform and that our platform allowed you to get some insights. I am sorry about your experience with the cancellation process. While we are disappointed when one of our customers leaves, we aim to make the process as simple as possible by following the terms of the signed contract. One of the terms is our requirement to provide 30 days' notice before the next renewal date. We state this in our terms and conditions but apologize for any misunderstanding, and we will work to make that part of the agreement clearer. We wish you all the best and hope that we can work together in the future.

Helped me immensely with analyzing netcdf data files

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: I am working with Geographical data that has latitudes, longitudes and a variable I am trying to analyze. This is a great tool to have for such data structure.

Pros:

I was introduced to Panoply by a colleague. I was trying to analyze a bunch of climate variables that were in netcdf format. Before I could write a code in Matlab to analyze the data, I needed to know the data structure. For this I have used a combination of F77 and Matlab in the past. However, I wanted to exclude Fortran and have a more convenient way of knowing the basic data structure. Matlab was more powerful with the actual analysis but not with the pre processing. This is where Panoply came in handy. All I had to do was upload the netcdf data file directly into panoply and boom. It gave me the basic structure that includes the number of data points, latitudes and longitudes of the data points and other essential details I needed.

Cons:

I did not come across any problem in particular for the 2+ years I have used Panoply. Sometimes, It did take a little long to load it if the netcdf file I was working with was a large file but it was not a big deal. Panoply actually was immensely helpful in knowing the data structure of the variable type for which I followed a much more complex procedure in the past before I used Panoply.
