ActivTrak is awesome for monitoring the productivity of employees. It helps when you are training a new employee because you can review what they are doing. Additionally, when you have a problem employee that isn't doing what they are supposed to be doing, it gives you the details that you need to make counseling or firing decisions. On the positive side of things, when applications and websites are categorized, it shows you which employees are extremely valuable to your organization because they are going above and beyond.

If any client is seriously looking for a BI tool on Hadoop and doesn’t want to compromise with any technology barriers with Hadoop such as security, compressions, formats etc., I recommend platfora for them. If clients are not dealing with big data then I don't recommend this tool.It’s a great tool to do quantitative, time series analysis and data science.

Pros

ActivTrak

  • Simplicity and ease of use- the application is extremely friendly and easy to use, more so than the competitor packages I've tried before
  • Widgets/Dashboards are extremely good at showing exactly what you need, and it's only getting better
  • Their current Data Connect offerings open up a multitude of further possibilities. I don't know if anyone is this good at data connect
  • Classification of apps/sites is more of an enjoyment than a chore with other providers

Workday Prism Analytics

  • It's web based. No need to install any desktop clients on your machine to use platfora.
  • It's best suited for a big data Hadoop environment. I can rate it as the #1 BI tool for a big data hadoop environment.
  • Platfora follows kind of the same architecture as Hadoop architecture like Master and Slave architecture. It scales with the data volumes.
  • Querying data is very good and very fast. (Platfora Lens)
  • Client presentation wise it's good. You can get different kinds of graphs.
  • Platfora almost supports everything on Big Data technologies including file formats, compression etc.
  • Security is not compromised and it can deal in parallel with any Hadoop distributor security implementations. Just take an example of Knox on Hortonworks, so it will deal with that and cloudera , MapR
  • Its very easily understandable and for the new people who wants to try platfora, learning curve is low
  • You can create your own datasets in platfora. You can store your results as a dataset in platfora and can share across

Cons

ActivTrak

  • The entire program is difficult to navigate and set up.
  • After renewal service does not seem to be a priority.
  • One device should be on one licence as some employees set up more than one account on the same device. Licenses should be per employee.
  • Make the software easier to use. Look at the competitors. It feels like ActivTrak is like DOS and other competitors like Windows--easier to learn.

  • Data Movement - Data needs to be moved from Hadoop to Platfora to create Platfora Lens and to do analytics.
  • To support Data movement, infrastructure cost is high.
  • To support data movement, network bandwidth consumption is high.
  • No trial versions for companies to evaluate.

Some reports are a little slow to load based on the size of record sets returned.

IT was as easy as pushing the agent out to the machines that needed to be tracked.

Alternatives Considered

ActivTrak

I have investigated numerous other products which claim to provide the same or similar function. However, each of those products did not provide the proper tools and reporting necessary to make them functional. Most of those programs were merely basic monitoring tools with no real capabilities. Additionally, the price points and pricing structures were difficult to understand and contemplate for long-term use.

Return on Investment

ActivTrak

  • It has given us the basis to let someone go that wasn't doing their job.
  • When we had a customer claim that a technician had done something when remoting into their server that caused them a problem, it proved that our technician wasn't at fault.

  • It's very positive for us to use platfora in terms of ROI
