About AnswerDock

AnswerDock is an AI-driven, search-based analytics solution that uses an intuitive interface to aid business users in analyzing their data using natural language, getting answers to day-to-day questions without the need for data analysts, and combining data from multiple sources for an integrated view of business metrics. The natural language processing and search-based analytics features within AnswerDock allow users to analyze their data by simply asking questions or typing searches similar to the way they use a web search engine. This makes AnswerDock easy-to-use and more intuitive than "drag and drop" and other report building methods.

With AnswerDock, business employees themselves are able to constantly ask day-to-day questions to analyze their data, which removes the need for data analysts. Using the Q&A interface, users simply type what they need and AnswerDock shows the results using the best fit visualization. When provided with reports that show an increase of sales in any given month, users can simply type in: "Why did sales increase this month" and AnswerDock will run the analysis for each segment, of a single or multiple dimension, to explain exactly where the increase came from in terms of metrics such as regions, categories, customer types, and more.

Other AnswerDock features include guided search functionality, customizable visualizations, interactive dashboard creation, trend discovery, connection to relational databases, integration with third party apps, sharing and collaboration, scheduled data loads, and more.

    Easy to setup and use on a daily basis

    We just like the ease of use and the speed we are using it to track our revenue , clicks , search performance , we have connected to at least 15 datasets, and are able to search through them quickly and intuitively. We also have setup the typical dashboards just like on other software and have then scheduled on monthly and weekly basis, but the main thing we like is the search- like interface .

    Pros

    We’ve been using Answerdock for just over a year now and we like the ease of use. We are a data heavy company where we monitor traffic , leads , clicks , and a bunch of other metrics . It just became exhausting to fit all of these on a dashboard. Now whenever we have questions we just have the answerdock tab open and we type the search and get answers easily. I liked that it connected easily to tables in our DB (mysql) and our google analytics account. We also get daily alerts about anomalies in our data. And we are able to investigate easily why sometimes we have spikes and dips in any of our metrics.

    Cons

    Clearly there are some more visualizations that they can add like the Sankey or funnel charts.

    Alternatives Considered

    ThoughtSpot, AnswerRocket, Tableau, and Microsoft Power BI

    Reasons for Choosing AnswerDock

    We had a bunch of reports on google data studio , but they were kind of static and did not allow for continuous data expiration ( question and answer format. On typical visualization software you can fit a certain number of metrics but in our business it doesn’t help a lot cos we need to explore multiple metrics and dimensions , it’s just not practical to use. On Answerdock we do not even need to save any dashboards , cos we just type the search we have in mind.

    Reasons for Switching to AnswerDock

    Thoughtspot is quite expensive and they do not have an online trial , same for answerrocket , the others might have a search interface but it’s with very limited use and just added as an extra feature.

    Augmented Analytics is the Future

    Reviewed on 01/03/2020

    Pros

    Easy on boarding: I'm an analyst with some SQL, and was able to put my client's data on Redshift in AnswerDock and modelled for end users within an hour.

    Straightforward pricing and self-service onboarding: No need to spend hours with an Enterprise sales team just to realise a price :)

    Cons

    I used it last year, when the Redshift connector was still evolving. We had to batch the data to get it to all load in, but support were pretty helpful.

    At times I'd liked to be able to give my query explicitly, rather than declaratively, without having to swap to a SQL query tool.
