Summation Parity

20190219 Release

For way too long people have been asking is Quin-C a viable replacement for Summation. Since the inception of that question my answer has always been the same: “What does it matter? They can be run together so Quin-C is additive not a replacement.” Although that is what I said, what I thought was very different. 18 months ago, I thought the answer was no and I was hoping they wouldn’t see the fear in my eyes, 9 months ago I thought the answer was maybe but I was afraid to say it, and now I know the answer is yes. To be clear I still say the same thing because they are complimentary and can be used together and there are plenty of reasons to do that, but after the 20190219 release of Quin-C the feature set in Quin-C so aggressively exceeds what is offered in Summation that I don’t even think it is a reasonable question anymore.  The products work differently so there are still some things in summation that are not in Quin-C and likely will never be but I no longer believe there is a compelling reason for a Quin-C users to ever open up Summation, while I see many reasons for a Summation user to venture into Quin-C with high frequency.  The point of this blog is to highlight why I say that and why I believe Summation users should seriously consider move to Quin-C. With the goal of being organized in my analysis and because Quin-C so exceeds Summation in so many ways I am going to break down my argument into the logical areas of data ingestion, ECA, data review, and finally production.
