Apptio

If you are trying to understand your IT costs and have cost pools and services defined then you are in a good position to move forward. If you are missing one of those items, spend the time getting that figured out before trying to implement the system. You can do that in parallel and use the ATUM model but it will not be an quick implementation. Ask what services Apptio can help with during the implementation process. They have some very good resources that can help provide best practice details from other customers.

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

Apptio

  • Service Costing – if you have to buy any module, this would be it! Comprehensive bottom up services cost analysis and reporting.
  • Bill of IT – Great module if you do charge backs. Can also help with Show Back of costs to the business.
  • Vendor Management – Manage SLAs and align those with vendor performance. While there are other products in the market that provide better functionality, this would be for a novice in this space.

QlikView

  • QlikView allows you make data-backed visualization very easily. The format of these visualizations is completely up to you and your team.
  • QlikView can show your data in many type of graphs as well as show the actual numbers associated with graphical points.
  • We use QlikView to access data on Microsoft SQL Server, but other data sources are supported. Check out the QlikView documentation to determine if they can use data in formats that you need to perform analysis on.

Cons

Apptio

  • Features are becoming easier to use, but like any software there is a constant progression
  • Getting companies on the right track for not only finding data but collecting consistent data
No photo available

QlikView

  • Qlikview has its own database and management system. Developers are required to build a new data model to get data into Qlikview.
  • Qlikview's web application requires significant memory and processing power from the browser. Complex dashboards can crash your browser if you're running too many things at once.
  • Qlikview dashboards look relatively outdated.

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.

Ease of use, ability to load from pretty much any data source. today I created an application that loaded time sheets from excel that are not in a table format. With Qlik's "enable transformation steps" I was able to automate loads of multiple spreadsheets and multiple tabs easily. Could not do that with any other tool.

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.

Dashboards are easy to use. They are very Excel-like with HTML5 capabilities. Data visualization is good.

The system requires minimum training to get user up and running. It just takes one hour to get up and running with building basic dashboards and one all day session for sophisticated dashboard building. It is intuitive.

We see this in our user adoption. We went from 6 users/day consuming dashboards to over 200 in 1.5 years.

We have 40-50 power users authoring dashboards. They have development licenses. My team in IT used to have to build all dashboards. Our capacity has grown from 3 to 50. Most of these users are analyst types good in Excel. A few power users can write SQL to build QVD models

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

"Implementation" can mean a few things... so I'm not sure that this is the answer you want.... but here it goes:To me, implementation means: "Is the user interface intuitive and can I produce meaningful reports with ease?"On that score, I'd say YES. The amount of training required was minimal and the results were powerful.The desktop implementation is a simple, "blank" interface just waiting for your creativity. The pre-populated templates give you a reasonable start to any project -- and a good set of objects to "play around with" if you're just getting started.Finally, note that the "implementation" I used was baked into QuickBooks 2016 Enterprise -- called "Advanced Reporting"..... That integration makes it ultra useful and simple.

Alternatives Considered

Apptio

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.

We evaluated a lot of other products in the magic quadrant but primarily compared QV against Tableau. We initially wanted to go with Tableau because it was cheaper and a simpler product to learn and use but frankly, their sales person was horrible and was not willing to work with us on number of licences or price. Qlikview was a great alternative. The product was better and even though it was a little more expensive, the more flexible licensing arrangement made up for it

Return on Investment

Apptio

  • 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.

QlikView

  • Generate quick reports for requirements that don't require complex calculations. ROI was fine, but Tableau software was much more intuitive for non-technical users on our team
  • When putting Qlikview reports side by side with Tableau, we ended up delivering Tableau reports since they were quicker to generate and required no technical expertise
