Sprinkle Analytics is a good alternative to PowerBI due to its ability to allow everyone to get insight using SQL or drag-and-dropStart Free Trial
Non-technical users have limited data exploration capability. They have to depend too much on Data Analysts for insights, making analysts team the bottleneck. This creates friction for self-serve analytics across the organisation.
with Power BI, your data analysts have to work with Power BI on a Windows machine, then publish on the cloud.
Power BI does not accept files larger than 250MB and there is a 1GB limit per dataset. As you scale, you will get stuck with Microsoft’s infrastructure, it’s quite cheap in the beginning when your goal is just visualizations but the cost will rise dramatically later when you scale up.
For building data models, analysts cannot use SQL. They have to learn a new language.
Power BI only supports just a few limited data sources for real-time connection. Power BI limits the number of scheduled refreshes per day.
"Swiggy’s hyperlocal time-critical business model requires quick and accurate insights.Therefore, most business and product teams need to do analyses by themselves. To make this happen, we needed a no-code analysis platform that was feature-rich and easy to use at the same time. Sprinkle has served that purpose very well for us. Today, we have hundreds of business and product users running thousands of analyses every month without the need for any analysts."
"The data team has been able to reduce the data dependency on them. Through the self-serve analytics on Sprinkle, the business & product users are able to get the required data & visualisations with ease themselves. Once the models are set up, it is very easy for users to build on new dashboards, which is very helpful in catering to ad-hoc requests."
"The tasks like building the data pipeline, which could have easily taken up to 2 weeks, can now be achieved with Sprinkle in a day or so. The reporting tasks that could have easily taken 4 to 8 hours can be done through automation on Sprinkle in half an hour, which is a game-changer for sales."
