Best Alternatives to Exago & Why You Should Consider Migrating

Exago has become the latest company to join the umbrella of Insight Software, where they will be absorbed into the Logi Analytics product offering. A big congrats to all the companies involved in the acquisition!  

What, you might ask,  does the future look like for Exago users? The promise of more analytics capabilities is enticing for their customer base, what let’s take a look at what that actually means.

Ease of use

Exago is primarily known for its embedded business intelligence solution that aims to deliver on promises of self-service and ease of use. 

When combined with Logi Analytics, a business intelligence solution known for the emphasis it places on technical capabilities, users can expect additional (and unforeseen) complexities.

Additionally, the level of self-service will undoubtedly be lost a bit in favor of deeper technical integrations. While this is unlikely to affect large teams with an abundance of technical resources, small to mid-sized organizations are likely to encounter some headaches. 

 

Upgrades

If the loss of end-to-end self-service wasn’t enough, the acquisition means you can all but forget about consistent product upgrades and feature improvements. 

Why?  Insight Software is notorious for being a serial acquirer that elects to focus on sales instead of product development. 

f you’re looking for a company to listen to your requirements and adapt the product to meet future needs (which, let's be honest, is everyone these days), it’s probably a good idea to look for an alternative to Exago ASAP.

Support

With most of Exago’s technical team being dissolved, what remains is a select few sales-driven employees. So, if you’re looking to get advice or support for technical issues related to the product, you will be forced to talk to someone who has less experience and knowledge of the product than you do. 

And yes, with the additional technicalities of the platform and a transition to a new environment, customer support should be more emphasized than ever. Exago getting added technical difficulties and transitioning to a new environment, now is the time that customer support is critical. If you don’t want to be left with half a product that you can’t make heads or tails off, you need to find a replacement analytics solution that fits your needs

Connecting data

Toucan is built with Any Connect. This means that Toucan has a native connection with all standard market tools build-in. We even have a generic REST API connector to give you access to any open REST API, on top of being able to simply drag and drop excel and CSV files into the platform. 

 

Manipulating your data

Preparing and manipulating data shouldn’t be complicated. That is why at Toucan we have YouPrep. It allows users of all technical levels to prepare data for analytics and manipulate it on the go because you shouldn’t need a Ph.D. to access your own data and use it. Add in the Visual query builder which is an intuitive feature requiring 0-code to build a chart and your analytics will be up and running in no time.

 

One-click embed

Once your chart is built it takes just one click to embed it into your product. The best thing about Toucan charts is the added context. You can not just embed lines and numbers into your product hoping to convey all the information. You need to add context with headers, description, glossary and the ability to share the analytics with annotations. This gives more functionalities to your users for the get-go. 

 

Build once deeply anywhere

As a web-based analytics solution, the charts you have embedded can be viewed on any device and screen size without the loss of context. This is due to the responsive design of Toucan. So within two weeks, you can connect your data, manipulate it, build charts, add context and deploy it on any device. All of this along with having a great onboarding and support team by your side.
