Pros: It's so easy! You pull up the application, you select go live, and then you are connected with the planet. It doesn't cost anything which is a big plus. The ability to connect and interact with students, family, and friends is a remarkable opportunity. The picture quality is sufficient.

Cons: The fact that anyone can comment can be more than an annoyance. As a teacher there are some things that you can't control and ugly or profane comments are a constant concern. I go live from around the country in an effort to connect students as well as family and friends to my summer travels, so there are moments where people can comment and be inappropriate. You want the ability to interact, so this is the downside.

Overall: It allows me to connect with students live from around the country or world for that matter. It's an incredible opportunity that expands on Facebook Live for instance that allows for more interaction. It's a great piece of technology that becomes a tool instead of a crutch.

We use periscope for our data analysis and visualization.

Pros: Periscope charts and graphs are pretty easy to use. I really like their upload CSV functionality. They recently improved their error reporting for troubleshooting query issues which was nice. Their support is extremely responsive.

Cons: Dashboards with a lot of widgets can be clunky and slow to load. Reorganizing widgets on a busy dashboard also can be a bit frustrating. Not quite as easy to use for non data people as other software I've used.

Pros: I like the speed and streamlined SQL language it enables. It has a great interface and customer support is fantastic.

Cons: SQL knowledge is required so this is not meant for the casual business user (though SQL experts can create dashboards for business users to monitor).

Overall: Greater flexibility, control, and freedom with data.

Perfect data visualizer for any size business!

Pros: The way we are able to manipulate our data and visualize in different ways allows my team to be more efficient and decisive when it comes to analyzing performance and executing on our strategies.

Cons: The SQL code used to parse database rows can be a little technical to get used to, but any business with a developer should be able to pick it up in no time.

Overall: Very useful data visualizations to help me and my team analyze data faster and more effectively.

Comments: Periscope has been my saving grace by introducing me to an awesome online community of broadcasters. It affords me the opportunity to engage in scopes which have helped to build me personally and professionally. I cannot go a day without being on Periscope.

Pros: I like the upgrades and the haste to resolve issues. The quality of programming is basically great.

Cons: Sometimes the app crashes and you miss your broadcast or cannot get back on for a while.

Recommendations to other buyers: Periscope is one of the best ways to help you build an online presence and make a positive impact.

Pros: It's a really robust tool to visualize data sets as a marketer. Pretty easily to manipulate as someone that doesn't know too much about coding.

Cons: Without SQL experience you'll find it hard to customize your charts the way you want it. You'll need to partner with data analytics team or dev to do that for you.

It helps make data transparent and accessible to all members of the team.

Pros: Being able to create dashboards and customizing the permissioning on these dashboards. We are able to make certain read-only dashboards public to external parties. In addition, the visualization and aesthetics have been done well, making the data is a lot more presentable to users.

Cons: The pivot table functions are somewhat limited, so if I wanted to create columns in the pivot table that contain processed data from other columns, I would have to do that in the query itself.

Overall a good software, I would argue if such engineering is needed.

Pros: Periscope has a really good UI/UX they provide everything you need and without being lost. From a users perspective this is huge as the processes become automatic.

Cons: The multiple dashboards that start being created within the company can sometimes become difficult to manage and I think some improvements on the UX of that part could come in handy a long way.

great tool to source customer data/insights.

Pros: This app is really user friendly, it's easy to use it and it also has a nice visual environment that makes things easy to do.

Cons: I think it's part of its nature, but it could be nice to know whether a user is active or you are only looking at what they have done so far but without time reference.

I use periscope to view production data and perform SQL queries.

Pros: It's really easy to view what tables are available and perform queries against them. If you are proficient with that, this is very powerful.

Cons: The displayed results can look a bit crowded, and I am not a fan of how it gives row numbers all the time. It should give an option to reduce the padding in the tables and turn off the numbering.

Overall: I highly recommend periscope for giving members of your organization access to the data they need. While it certainly helps to be technically proficient, you can do a lot with minimal experience.

Pros: The software makes it very easy to build out intuitive charts in an agile manner. Customer service is extremely response.

Cons: It took too long to get started on our initial setup. Backend configuration took much longer than expected and required more engineering resources than we'd initially accounted for.

Overall: In theory, charts and information are central and easily shareable. The downside in the setup is time consuming and may not always meet business and engineering constrains.

Cons: I know that Periscope has many cool features. However, I have not devoted the time to figure out what Periscope can offer.

Pros: This was the first of its time and the ability to interact with celebrity and influencers was a great tool.

Cons: This was great when it first came on the scene, but as other social platforms incorporated their own native live streaming platforms, this became obsolete.
