Google BigQuery vs. Panoply

Compare software solutions
If you’re like most businesses, data is everywhere, but syncing, storing, and accessing it is a challenge. An analytics stack is the answer, but deciding how to build one isn’t easy.

To help, we’ve compared Google BigQuery and Panoply on key factors like price, ease of use, and compatibility so you can make an informed decision that fits your needs.

BigQuery is a Data Warehousing Platform for Data Scientists

BigQuery is a cloud-based data warehouse built for data scientists and data engineers. The platform is highly scalable, able to store massive amounts of data, and integrates easily with Google Suite products. It includes a SQL workbench and allows multiple users to query data. New users may find that BigQuery’s expensive price tag, extremely technical learning curve, and lack of integrations to pull in data are a barrier to entry.

Panoply is a Data Warehouse + ETL Platform for Analysts

Panoply is the easiest way to sync, store, and access all your business data. The platform combines a powerful data warehouse with code-free ETL, which results in quick and easy setup and minimal upkeep. Users can query data directly in Panoply or connect their preferred analytical notebook or BI tool.

Pricing Structure

Google BigQuery Pricing

Pricing for BigQuery is scalable but convoluted and includes many inputs, including charges for both active storage and long-term storage, and on-demand queries and flat-rate Queries. New users may find it difficult to estimate what their costs will be.

Panoply Pricing

Panoply offers both monthly and annual plans starting as low as $200 per month. Its pricing model is simple and transparent: users pay for the number of data sources they use and the amount of data they store. There are no extra fees for adding users or the number of queries run, so cost is more predictable than with pay-by-the-hour or pay-by-the-row models.
