Choosing the right tool for your business

With an array of options in the market, it can be tough to choose the right data visualisation tool for you and your business. You need to consider cost, scalability and usability among a variety of other factors. Here are our thoughts on the main four visualisation platforms:
  • Power BI
    Power BI is likely to be the best option for you if you're already using programmes within the Microsoft stack, like Azure, Microsoft cloud environment, or Excel, as you can seamlessly integrate these platforms. It's also very easy to get started with, especially if you're familiar with other parts of the Microsoft stack, so therefore it's relatively straight-forward for non-data teams to use. Power BI is probably the most cost-effective visualisation tool on the market. Its desktop version is free to use, and the cost to upgrade to the online services is very cost-effective compared to competitors.
  • Looker
    Recently acquired by Google, Looker users can expect more and more integrations available with Google's data stack as they focus their investment on developing this new and improved visualisation tool. One of the first steps is incorporating the widely used Google Data Studio (now called Looker Studio). Looker also has the ability to connect to multiple data sources and enables straightforward self-service analytics, however it is typically more expensive than some of its competitors.
  • Tableau
    Tableau is one of the longest running visualisation tools, and as a result, offers an impressive suite of interactive visualisations and can handle vast amounts of data. One of the great things about Tableau is its strong community - they essentially offer a public forum where you can ask Tableau-related questions and collaborate with other users. However, Tableau is predominantly a visualisation tool so if you're looking for a platform that will also clean and process your data then Tableau isn't the best option. It can also be quite expensive to scale up usage within an organisation.
  • Qlik Sense
    Qlik Sense has a full range of AI capabilities, which is great if you're wanting to take your insights to the next level. Their unique data engine also enables users to really drill down into the data and explore it from any angle. Qlik is also a great option if you're wanting to scale up as there are no additional or hidden costs. However, its range of visualisations are limited in comparison to competitors, and it doesn't support the programming languages R and Python.

What is Power BI? visual

Power BI

Power BI (Business Intelligence) is Microsoft’s interactive data visualisation and analytics tool.

Bringing data analytics together with visualisation, Power BI provides organisations with insights into their data, enabling businesses to make business intelligent, data-driven decisions.

With Ipsos Jarmany’s Power BI consultancy, you can take control of and unleash the power of your company’s data.

“One of the biggest advantages of Power BI is the ease at which it can connect to multiple data sources, enabling us to create highly detailed and sophisticated reports. As part of Microsoft product suite this tool is incredibly user friendly. We even support Microsoft in building their own internal Power BI reports.”

Google’s visualisation tool, Looker, is a business intelligence tool that runs in the cloud, and, in our eyes, a close second to Power BI.

Looker integrates seamlessly with the Google stack of data products including Google Cloud services and Big Query.

But Looker can also connect to any database. So, whether you run Microsoft Azure SQL, PostgresSQL, Google Cloud SQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Google BigQuery, MySql, Hadoop, Amazon Redshift, Oracle or any of many, many other database systems, Looker has you covered.

With Looker you can integrate data from many well-known data sources including Google Ads, LinkedIn, Shopify, Jira, HubSpot, Magento.

“Looker is a superb visualization tool that rivals Power BI and Tableau. Customers love Looker because of its superb capability to store and manipulate data.”

Tableau is a well-established data analytics solution that makes it easier to understand data and uncover actionable insights.

Comprising a suite of analysis and visualisation tools, Tableau software can operate on data sets of any size with efficient data preparation and end-to-end analysis. Effective deployment allows you to take control of your data, make data-driven decisions and identify long-term trends.

“We’ve worked with Ipsos Jarmany for over 3 years, and during that time they’ve supported us with the full integration of our marketing APIs, and were instrumental in our migration to Tableau.

As well as supporting us with the transition to Tableau, they played a key role in training our team to ensure internal adoption of the new platform.”

Gianni Raftis, Head of Data Products & Strategy, Secret Escapes

Qlik Sense

Qlik Sense is a widely adopted data consolidation and visualisation tool. It helps businesses to merge and manage huge, disparate data sets and surface vital management information to assist with data-driven decision-making.

Qlik streamlines the process of merging data sources including relational databases such as SQL Server, unstructured files such as documents and emails, apps and cloud-based data stores. It also provides the analytics tools necessary to visualise the data in a user-friendly, business-friendly way.

“Qlik is fast to deploy and not dependent on any centralised IT infrastructure. For this reason, Qlik is often deployed by departments looking to understand their data, without the need for expensive, business-wide IT projects.”
