    In my company, I'm the only BI guy and I didn't get time enough to push dashboards for all needs requested by users. We implement Jetpackdata as it's very easy to use and now, end-users have jetpackdata on their own. As a consequence we are more efficient regarding the BI utilization. Complex to the BI department; routine tasks to the end users thks to this solution

    Tableau is more oriented to data-scientists, as a consequence, it's too complicated for me whereas JetPack Data is really user-friendly, don't need to be data scientist to use this tool ;)

    Its really amazing. Simple (just like Tableau) - even a non-technical person like me can easily understand and use. Its free to use and one can easily share the report by embedding a 2 line code in an HTML page. It works perfectly.
