|I am in charge of implementing a web-accessible dashboard to visualise some data we are collecting on behalf of a client.|
I am currently planning to use Tableau. However, my (admittedly very limited) exposure to the platform has left heavily underwhelmed. Tableau dashboards appear expensive, slow, ugly, and completely lacking in statistical tools.
Can anyone suggest a platform that can improve on any/all of these issues?
I am experienced with Postgres, JS, Ruby and Objective-C, and also with Stata and R, so I'm not afraid of some coding. But I am looking for something considerably quicker than coding the thing from scratch.
