Business Analytics outside Quickbase

  • 1.  Business Analytics outside Quickbase

    I am shopping for a cloud analytics tools and I'm getting BLOWN AWAY by the prices. They are asking  4-10x what I pay a month for  QUICKBASE just to build dashboards of analytics.  
    They are all saying how much it costs to build the tools, but zoiks, that's crazy. Curious what other business owners are doing.


    MS Power BI
    Looker
    Chartio
    Sisense
    BIME
    Grow
    Klipfolio
    Tableau 
    DOMO

    DOMO is $30K to get started and $2000/month per user. Are they serious for a small business? Others are cheaper but it's hard to discern if they are worth it or not.

    I tell these sales people that I run my WHOLE BUSINESS (ERP, Sales, etc.)

    Analytics is all maths.
    Heavy Custom Development helps to achieve.

    You mean natively using Quickbase charting?

    No
    Javascript Libraries like
    Highcharts
    d3js and many more open source libraries available.

    I think that CloudBase Services, a QSP (Quick Base Solution provider) does integrations with Tableau.

    Easy Insights has a native integrations with Quick base and a wider variety of chart types. http://www.easy-insight.com/

    just an edit. re "a wider variety of chart".  ie a wider variety of charts vs native Quick Base, not vs these other tools like Tableau.

    No need to pay high initial costs.  

    CloudBase Services, the firm I own and manage, can integrate QuickBase with Tableau, Power BI and other analytics platforms. We can also add custom charts to QuickBase.  We'll tell you what's faster and cheaper. Click here to see more or email sales at CloudBaseServices dotcom

    Thanks, Mark.
