Apptio

Well suited for IT Cost Transparency or Service Costing efforts. Key questions to look for when selecting a tool to do this are:
  • Standardized cost model built into the solution
  • Number of other customers in your industry vertical. For benchmarking purposes.
  • Support for extending cost models beyond IT spend. Apptio has named this "Enterprise Business Management". After IT expense is modeled, this is the next logical maturity path. In order to effectively provide financial management for shared services or end-to-end services, there will be expense outside of IT that needs to be modeled.
  • Is on premise field support included?
  • Capability to integrate with your Service Catalog platform.

QlikView

I can't recommend QlikView enough for a small shop on a shoestring budget--with one technical user administering things, all your users can have a really nice, super useful data exploration tool. The burden is certainly on that one user, but the payback is immense considering the price (free!). Solutions like Tableau and Qlik's new product, Qlik Sense, are certainly prettier and less demanding in terms of UI design, but they can't touch QlikView in terms of value.

Pros

  • Proprietary, standardized IT data model built into the system. Enables very rapid deployment. Also, by having defined data, it makes it easier to know what to ask for and find it within the organization. Also enables "like for like" benchmarking.
  • The standardized IT data model allows Apptio to deliver a robust set of reports out of the box.
  • Customer support is well beyond expectations. Outstanding. Apptio is a true business partner.
  • Technology Business Management Council is a leading group of CIOs developing the practice and driving new features into Apptio.

Cons

  • TBM is such a new practice, finding resources that either know it or can learn it is challenging. This is no fault of Apptio's, but we rely on them heavily to show us best practice and deliver value proposition. Thankfully their field support engineer is very dedicated to helping us.

  • Like a lot of software, QV starts with a blank page. If you are like me, you dive in without reading the instruction manual. Big mistake. There is a rigid stepwise process that you must follow to make it work....
  • I've never used anything quite as powerful as QV, so I cannot compare this to many other packages. ... but with 30 minutes of training and an hour of practice, you can be pretty proficient.

I don't believe there is a product on the market as mature in its practice and purpose-built as Apptio is for IT Cost Transparency. It even made the CNBC "Top 50 Disruptor" list for innovative technologies. Its is way ahead of its competition.

Apptio is proving to be a relatively user-friendly product, assuming proper skill sets and training. Enterprise Analytical abilities to support the proper data readiness and implementation are key.

Once the data is loaded (which can range from simple to complex depending on the data set), it is relatively easy to create new charts/dashboards

My team attended, but I cannot myself rate, but I think it was good as they've successfully launched a training program at our company themselves for users. It was 3-4 day training.

Training was as expected. The demo environments tend to be more fully featured that our own environment, but the training was clear and well delivered.

Implementation

Well, so far. Apptio Consulting covered specific model architecting areas particularly. Most of the heavy lifting is being done in-house with support from Apptio as it relates to tool impacts and needs. Some administrative tasks were redundant

QlikView were here for a few days, and it was up and running. It was very fast.

Where it fell short, is they did the implementation in demo mode, and didn't initially work with us to help us scale. For example, should we consider a load balancer and multiple servers?. How much capacity can this environment handle from a data and user perspective. We had to learn on own by trial and error. We are bringing them in to do an architectural assessment, but we have to pay for this.

We are now bringing them back in for architectural assessment. It is a fee based engagement.

Alternatives Considered

There is no true competitor that is even comparable to allowing the same capabilities and benefits Apptio provides. It is ground breaking in every sense of the word and will make a huge difference for each and every customer. It can be very complex at times, but like everything in life anything worth implementing takes time, effort, and some growing pains.

Qlikview is more outdated compared to Qlik Sense. Qlik Sense puts more of the power onto the users to create their own dashboards while QlikView tends to be managed by BI teams.

Return on Investment

  • Apptio Technology Business Management has greatly improved our chargeback transparency to the lines of business.
  • Apptio Technology Business Management has reduced our internal processing time for transfer pricing and various monthly reports.
  • We have yet to apply the IT expenses to a business metric within Apptio Technology Business Management but that is on the roadmap.
  • Apptio Technology Business Management has provided valuable cost level reports but we are still struggling to create the high level dashboards within the tool.
