    ActivTrak is well suited to for the reasons that we wanted a monitoring software solution implemented. It allows us to manage the performance of our overseas offices and those who are working from home, where they do not have the direct management from their Line Manager. The biggest issue for us is, as we have numerous offices in different countries, having to constantly change the time zone to each one before running the reports is time consuming and an annoyance if you forget to change it, as you then have to rerun the report.

    Anaplan

    Best suited for handling large calculations, where Excel can no longer cope. Also, in environments where the calculations are likely to be changed regularly, Anaplan can handle that, and even significantly change the structure of data sets, without too much of a headache. It struggles with sparsity creating larger models than they should be (although at least you know performance won't reduce when the model gets more populated with data). Due to the sparsity consideration, Anaplan isn't the best tool for data that needs to be pivoted by a large number of dimensions, like in a BI tool.

    Pros

    ActivTrak

    • Detailed listings of actions at times. done by the second in many cases, very useful.
    • the productive/unproductive listings allow managers at a glance to see their employees use of time
    • Snapshots ( when properly utilized) are very helpful in troubleshooting, strange, occurrences, as well as they're used by Human resources.
    • The IT help desk is very efficient. log in to your portal, bottom right, and in minutes your talking to someone.

    Anaplan

    • Security within the system is easily managed using roles. However, administrators can tighten security down to the individual node or apply dynamic access using logic built directly into the model.
    • Common integration platforms engage with Anaplan using either APIs or other methods. This allows for talent to be shared across functions that may not specifically be focused on Anaplan development.
    • Migration from development & QA to production is fairly easy and managed within the system. Centralizing this within the function allows for quick deployments and agility in hotfixes. There is also the ability to roll back a change as needed.
    • Copying & archiving models is a fairly quick exercise and gives the functions the ability to save off data without specific skillsets. The data management is smooth & makes modeling very flexible.

    Cons

    ActivTrak

    • Rollout through Group Policy could be a little smoother.
    • Alarms for when an employee has been inactive for a specified amount of time.
    • Alert for computers that no longer are active.
    • More streamlined integration with identifying computers and users.
    • More specific breakdowns of classifications, ie - the ability to say Facebook for business is Productive, but scrolling feeds and watching videos is unproductive.
    • Classifications to more easily auto-classify e-commerce hubs and portals.

    Anaplan

    • Anaplan struggles with hierarchies where children list items have multiple parents. In our organization, we like to slice and dice the data many different ways as the solutions we sell don't fit just 1 single product hierarchy. You cannot assign more than 1 parent to a list item, which means you have to create duplicate list items and map them together in order to achieve your desired goal of looking at the single piece of data in different hierarchies.
    • Speed can sometimes we an issue. If we have too many users in the model at the same time, there can be some lag in saving data inputs. Also, structural changes, such as updating a formula, can sometimes take several minutes to save if there are other processes running within the model at the same time. This makes it difficult to have more than 1 model builder making structural changes at the same time.
    • Anaplan doesn't do a good job of conditional formatting. I find the functionality very limited and hard to use in a way that pleases our end users. The color options are less than ideal as well.

      We are in agreement that the tool is very handy as a security companion. The system collects and retain relevant historical data to be queried when you desire e.g. in security reviews once a week.

      Anaplan

      In any line of work, a tool that is flexible and would allow different departments of your company to easily interact and exchange valuable insights, is highly anticipated and needed. For me, what Anaplan provides to a business, be it a smaller one or an enterprise customer, is an easily scaling, agile planning and modeling platform that can meet almost any need and give a high-end solution to the problems any company faces on a daily basis.

      Anaplan

      Everything is calculated in memory in the cloud. It's nearly instantaneous updates when you make changes. The only time things get a little slow is when you have a massive model with very intricate calculations...but "slow" for Anaplan is not what I would call "slow" for something like Hyperion. We used to have Hyperion calcs that ran for 60 mins before you could use data. The equivalent would be 60 seconds in Anaplan.

      Support Rating

      ActivTrak

      Support is always fast and the agents are ready at all times to help when an issue arises, if the tier 1 agent isn't able to provide a solution to the issue they're asked about they quickly escalate the issue to tier 2 or 3 to ensure that the appropriate support is given to the issue at hand to have it quickly solved. No issue we've had so far has taken more than two days to be solved.

      Anaplan

      I feel like the support team is a little lacking in product knowledge. Several times I have contacted them to get help, and ended up finding a solution to my own problem before the team could get back to me with anything useful. I have also submitted a few bugs, and never got updates to when they were fixed in later releases.

      The in-person training is simply not worth the cost. After a few weeks of playing in Anaplan, I went to the basic training and knew more than the person teaching it. a year down the road, I was the first person to complete the advance training, and again could have been teaching the class better than the person running the session. Spend some time on your own trying out different things and you will get all the understanding you need to be successful.

      Agile methodology and breaking the work down into sprints was very helpful. Implementation required a deeper dive into our data than expected for the consultants to be able to construct the data model. But once it was in place, the focus on knowledge transfer enabled us to be able to use the product effectively after the team rolled off.

      Alternatives Considered

      ActivTrak

      We were using Currentware and Webspy from Vantage. Neither product could track daily usage in a detailed way ActivTrak can. Also, web spy could only track in-house users whereas ActivTrak can track work from home users. Using Active Trak we were about to combine the features of both software packages into one.

      Anaplan

      It's going to handle most of what you can throw at it. The problem lies in the sparsity of some datasets. When you have over 5ish dimensions of sparse data, the size of the model gets bloated for not much value. In several cases, I have had to adapt my model to account for sparsity in a way that minimized use of space, but also made interacting with the data more cumbersome.

      Return on Investment

      ActivTrak

      • Defensive capabilities immediately avoided data exfiltration from an outgoing employee.
      • Trends for underperforming or underdeveloping users can be spotted, analyzed by managers, and used within their overall development management to help staff reach their best potential.
      • Costing for targeted use is relatively low and therefore a "no brainer."
      Read full review

      Anaplan

      • Elimination of 7 different tools and deploying Anaplan alone for them was a huge OPEX saving for our company.
      • Data HUB for master data centralized finance master data from all countries/zones and also helped to standardize the definitions of the same. It also allowed us to put proper governance in making any changes to the master data.
      • The connected planning setup done between finance, workforce and supply eliminated duplication of manuals efforts and also allowed to generate and update P&L statements almost in real-time. Executive reporting improved significantly that helped in better decision making.
