About Mode

Mode is a cloud-based software that helps enterprises leverage business intelligence (BI) tools to extract data from multiple sources and process and analyze it for reporting purposes. Administrators can use the dashboard to apply custom formulas across query results, configure staff access permissions, and visualize collected data in the form of charts or pivot tables.

Mode provides a built-in data engine, Helix, which enables businesses to use an SQL editor, drag-and-drop charts, and Python and R notebooks to build custom visualizations. Developers can embed white-label analytics into applications and define parameters for managing database loads. It also lets users access previous versions of queries, automatically update generated reports, and share them with colleagues through Slack or email.

Mode offers an API, which allows enterprises to integrate the platform with several data warehouses and third-party applications such as Amazon Athena, Databricks, Impala, MemSQL, Fivetran, Permutive, Oracle, ETLeap, XPlenty, and more. The software is designed for businesses in the finance, healthcare, food, media, and retail industries.

Mode Pros and Cons

Reviewed on 05/11/2021

Pros

The system's customization features allow you to zero in on specific data and deliver it in the most effective way possible for you and your company. The reporting interface's user-friendly drag-and-drop interface makes data visualization simple and powerful. Finally, the low price is a big plus, especially when you consider the capabilities you receive for that money.

Cons

One typical issue is that there is no mobile user support, implying that you must use this program on a computer. There have also been criticisms regarding the absence of features such as reports that are generated automatically whenever a triggering event happens rather than on a timetable, or the availability of clustering stacked bar graphs and other similar capabilities.

Mode is a powerful tool for your business

10/10 we couldn't have run our business without it. All of our production reports and alerting happen through Mode and it hasn't ever let us down. Mode works great with other tools in its space and fits nicely in to the modern data stack. Two thumbs way up from our team.

Pros

- You can query database tables directly using SQL
- The visualizations are easy to set up and beautiful
- you can literally style ANYTHING on your report using CSS, Javascript, and HTML
- the Python notebook is powerful and easy to use, you can use Plotly along with a whole bunch of other great libraries for working with data.
- There is a Mode API so you can use report results in tools like zapier to help build alerting around your business metrics
- flexable parameterization for reports

Cons

This is minor, but the UI can get the tiniest bit glitchy, on occasion. That said I've seen the Mode team address lots of the issues over the years.

Reasons for Switching to Mode

Our team would be lost without the Python and R libraries. We also use the Mode API to power a ton of alerting and reporting for product, finance, customer success, and sales.

The whole thing is amazing when it comes to using Mode with all available features, I'm using a lot of things because of my job duties, I create dashboards, and update the daily, weekly, and monthly reports with one click to refresh the queries.

Pros

It is the easiest way to create or update dashboards and let the employees know the update once it happened to be communicated with the customers, also very smooth and easy to integrate with any database to get the required data for visualization.

Cons

Sometimes, especially when using low internet speed connections the pages take so much time to load and this might some issues for the users, I recommend creating a special view "lowered web version" for such internet speed.

Good for operative reporting but not as well as bi tool.

Small companies without any reporting tool is good to start.

Pros

Easy to use with technical background. Easy to run a queries analyze the results and built interesting charts to do some exploratory data analysis or follow some KPIs. Also is good subscription by email (or other methods) and great to use python to create some sophisticated analysis.

Cons

It's not easy to use for final user without SQL background. If you are looking for operative reporting or EDA is a good solution but if your final users don't know SQL and wats to do some analysis with data like: drag a drop dimensions measures from data mart and build their own analysis, use "drill down", use some sophisticated filters (or/and) or analysis to compare two sets of data,... it has a great way to go.

Created dashboards by our engineering teams work great. They load fast and the visuals provided are great. Perfect for me in gathering data quickly and being able to make decisions based on them.

Pros

If you are not a person who knows how data dashboards work and are created it will be very difficult to learn and setup your own custom dashboards. Using it in "read only" mode is perfect for non data engineer people. If you have a dedicated Data team to help set up dashboards it will suit your needs as Mode is quite fast and easy to use if the dashboards are set up by "professionals".

Cons

There is no hand holding for people that have never set up data dashboards. It is a very difficult product to use for entry level people into the world of data. Your data team will be needed to create and deploy functioning dashboards.
