ThoughtSpot Strengths, Domain Expertise, and Key Differentiators
ThoughtSpot is a next-generation analytics platform powered by the World's first Relational Search engine. ThoughtSpot combines a new relational search engine for data analytics with a custom-built, in-memory relational data cache to provide sub-second response times to search queries run over billions of rows of data. It helps customers bring speed to data analysis by answering natural language questions about the data without having to understand how to formulate a SQL query. As a person enters questions, ThoughtSpot translates that question into SQL, then displays a chart with data related to the question, all almost instantly.
ThoughtSpot reported 108% revenue growth for the fiscal year ending January 31, 2020. The company’s growth was driven by significant adoption by organizations in every industry vertical, as enterprises look beyond the rapidly consolidating data visualization market to the next generation of analytics, powered by search, artificial intelligence, and the cloud, to transform their business.
