First rolled out in 2016, Google Data Studio might be the free, web-based suite that Google has to offer but Google’s user-friendly, intuitive design to business intelligence might be one of its strongest selling points.
Pros: Works great with data sourced from Google, like Google Analytics, Search Console, AdWords, YouTube analytics, and others. You can literally pull in any data you’d like from a Google Sheet.
Cons: Does not really help good to pull a big selection of pre-built connectors for data from other sources. Requires a lot to make working with a wide range of data types easy.
As for visualization and analysis capabilities, Data Studio offers a fair number of options compared to other analytics suites. One other potential drawback of Data Studio is the fact that it’s entirely web-based. Sharing is easy for those who are willing to head to the link you provide, but you won’t be able to export to a pdf or any other common reporting format, and automated report delivery is limited.
