Business intelligence software comparison: DataFocus versus Tableau

DataFocus is a recently emerging self-service business intelligence software, the Tableau is a powerful established business intelligence software, two models are committed to development for everyone to use analysis tools and a breakthrough, but the actual operation of both the target direction still have very big difference, for example, the Tableau fully functional and operational depth, more suitable for professional analysis of data on its own powerful business understanding to undertake personalized data show, while the DataFocus is geared to the needs of ordinary business people, The data analysis process adopts Chinese natural language analysis and one-click automatic data analysis, which is simpler and easier to use, and provides enterprises with comprehensive data management and organizational management strategies. Here’s a simple comparison between these two smart business apps.

DataFocus is the first Chinese natural language data analysis system developed by hangzhou huisu zhitong technology co., LTD., which can be automatically answered with data or charts through simple searching interaction. It supports data screening, drilling, data linkage and other operations to freely and multi-angle data analysis. Let not have the code ability, not familiar with the data structure of the business personnel can also quickly get on the hands of a beautiful in-depth data graphics.

DataFocus system architecture:

Tableau is a huge, established product that has been a leader for six years in the Gather BI and data analytics magic quadrant reports. Tableau is powerful, detail-oriented and tends to be a professional data analyst. As long as the data is processed in advance, many colorful information graphs can be made. To cover a wide range of data sources, a drag-and-drop operation can map the data information to graphical information by dragging the corresponding data to the corresponding location. After being familiar with the software, users can deeply analyze the data charts and generate beautiful and clear data reports through the operation of the components.

Compare the two software by function:

1 data connection

DataFocus supports two ways of data connection: data source connection and data extraction to the system. It also supports total or incremental updates of data in whole or single tables, and supports regular updates.

Tableau also supports two ways of data connection: data source connection and data extraction to the system. However, in the new aspect of data, incremental updates are supported, and incremental updates only support incremental updates of all data currently analyzed, which cannot be accurate to a table and do not support regular updates.

2 data source support

Both DataFocus and Tableau support mainstream databases, text data sets, and so on. However, there are many data sources supported by Tableau, such as cloud database and text data sets in more formats.

3 data processing

DataFocus adopts the mode of intermediate and associated tables to effectively support ETL operations of data, such as adding public columns, data consolidation, filter cleaning, grouping statistics, using partial fields and other functions, and it does not require complex SQL operations with high learning cost.

Tableau supports some simple ETL operations, but the body still requires SQL processing.

4 data visualization and analysis

DataFocus support Chinese natural language analysis, the user can explore the data, by means of man-machine dialogue with AI systems can understand the problem of human about the data in order to respond to the questions of a variety of charts and data, not like a drag and drop to the user in advance in constructing a good graphic data structure, data truly help business people to explore the problem of data. Support data drilling, filtering, linkage and other operations, multi-angle, various dimensions of free data analysis. At the same time, we also have rich and beautiful chart types, and select the appropriate chart types intelligently according to the data problems.

Table supports free analysis of dimensions and measures and allows users to generate charts with free drag-and-drop operations. Tableau adopts the three-level structure of filters, tags and row and column coordinates in components to transform data information into graphic information, and automatically generates corresponding charts to distinguish outstanding features of data by controlling the display characteristics of tags. Support data up drilling, down drilling, linkage and other OLAP operations. There are rich chart types and personalized visual effects.

5 user and data rights management

DataFocus supports adding users to the tripartite database in the form of organizational personnel information and system self-built liang hong. Manage users through the administrative organizational structure of the enterprise. In terms of data rights management, the fine-grained access control to the rows and rows of the table enables users with different rights to see only the data in the table consistent with the rights according to the needs of the enterprise, which is safe and convenient.

Tableau supports two ways to add users directly to and in the import server. User management is to group the added users into different groups. A user can be divided into groups. Then the permissions are set according to the group, flexible and not enough.

6 the mobile

The mobile terminal of DataFocus does not need to be redeveloped. Enterprise WeChat updates the PC terminal analysis report synchronously, so that users can know their data at any time and anywhere.

Tableau Mobile only supports independent apps (only IOS), only allows one server connection, and supports linkage, drill-down, filtering and other operations. However, compared with PC, there is no editing function, and mail sharing is supported, but WeChat and QQ sharing are not supported.
