    Looking for the best analytics software for a medium-large-sized firm. We currently use a Microsoft SQL Server database that is analyzed in Tableau desktop/published to Tableau online for users to access dashboards. Is it worth the cost savings/time to switch over to using SSRS or Power BI? Does anyone have experience migrating from Tableau to SSRS /or Power BI? Our other option is to consider using Tableau on-premises instead of online. Using custom SQL with over 3 million rows really decreases performances and results in processing times that greatly exceed our typical experience. Thanks.

    Hi - I am looking to develop an app accessed by a browser that will display interactive networks (including adding or deleting nodes, edges, labels (or changing labels) based on user input. Look to use Django at the backend. Also need to manage graph versions if one person makes a graph change while another person is looking at it. Mainly tree networks for starters anyway. I probably will use the Networkx package. Not sure what the pros and cons are using Bokeh vs Matplotlib. I would be grateful for any comments or suggestions. Thanks.

        We use Plotly (just their open source stuff) for Zulip's user-facing and admin-facing statistics graphs because it's a reasonably well-designed JavaScript graphing library.

        If you've tried using D3.js, it's a pretty poor developer experience, and that translates to spending a bunch of time getting the graphs one wants even for things that are conceptually pretty basic. Plotly isn't amazing (it's decent), but it's way better than than D3 unless you have very specialized needs.

        Here is my stack on #Visualization. @FusionCharts and Highcharts are easy to use but only free for non-commercial. Chart.js and Plotly are two lovely tools for commercial use under the MIT license. And D3.js would be my last choice only if a complex customized plot is needed.

        I'm a student, and I have a project to build an application (Visual analytics tool) that takes a Microsoft Excel file, cleans the data, and visualizes it. Also, the app should allow the user to filter and interact with it.

        1- should I make it desktop application or web application? : I'm leaning toward (desktop)

        2- D3.js OR Python?

        3- better excel or CSV?

        I'm a beginner Inspiration for interaction and look of the app: eventflow application.

            Lattice

            Hi to decide on which tool to use, think about Lattice as a performance management tool built using monday.com i.e. a workspace with limited features built using a customisable tool. If you are looking to build a tool to manage people's performance like goals, performance, feedback then Lattice is the tool but if you want the tool to do more than these features then you need tool like Monday.com which is 100% customisable.

            Are these competing products? I am looking for automation, which is why I have looked into monday.com. I'm building an HR Outsourcing company, and Lattice seems powerful, but I'm not sure if it replaces Monday.com.
