arcplan

It is very suitable for complete corporate BI solutions. If you see BI as embedding information into your organization and business processes, and thus as more than just a few scattered dashboards and reports, arcplan is your platform. It's less suitable for ad-hoc reporting and data discovery. It can do it (everything is possible), but there is strong competition in this area.

Domo

When you want to empower your end users. When you want to take the stress off your IT team from building reports. When you want to have a "data warehouse" without building out your own massive DW/DC and Infa team.

Pros

  • Endless functionality. With arcplan, you're not limited to a certain set of functions (like with most competitors), but you can think up and add functionality. This includes things like business process management modules, so that your BI really gets embedded into business processes.
  • One core, one skill-set needed, no coding. As an all-round arcplan developer, you can basically do everything. So, even when things get complex, there is no need for external scripts, macros, VBA code, etc. Even the most advanced corporate BI systems are built in arcplan with one skillset!
  • No end user training needed. With arcplan, it's easy to build applications that work purely intuitively. It's also possible to show/hide advanced options, depending on the type of users you define.
  • No data modelling required. Of course, if the business requires it, you can add semantic layers, but you are not forced to do it in all circumstances. I find this a huge advantage over other products, because most business data sources already are logically structured.
  • Multiple data sources can be connected and you're completely free in combining the data in these sources: create your own, or create modules to associate data 'on the fly', whatever you want. You want ETL? No problem. You want to avoid ETL? No problem either.
  • Write-back capabilities: this is critical if you want to really embed BI into your business processes. In BI, information should be actionable: arcplan allows the end user to really take that action.
  • Great developer interface, which makes it also possible for someone with limited technical skills (but high business acumen) to take part in developments.
  • Pricing and licensing. At first glance, arcplan seems not very cheap compared to competitors. However, the licensing model is logical, and there are no hidden costs. Compare that to 'free' products that become very costly as soon as you want to have an enterprise solution.

  • The fact end users can ETL data in a drag and drop UI instead of code is extremely useful.
  • Processing. You can run through millions to billions of data pretty quickly being that its all on AWS.
  • Visualizations. There are what seems to be 100's of chart types to chose from which allows each question to be answered in the most insightful way.
  • Mr. Roboto. A new feature which give you insight/anaylsis into your data and reports (cards)

Cons

  • Positioning and marketing. Most BI vendors use a non-technical sales strategy and focus on shiny, sexy dashboards to sell the story. In order to position arcplan fairly and correctly, the technical and business advantages need to be part of a sales story. So, it is not really an easy product to sell to customers, if it has to compete with now-to-wow-five-minute products.
  • Learning/training for developers. It's easy to learn the basics of arcplan, because the interface is logical. But nothing prevents a beginning developer from creating a monstrous application, because there is no prescribed architecture. It really takes some experience to become a good arcplan architect. It's a disadvantage resulting from one of arcplan's biggest advantages.
  • Data connectors: arcplan standard comes with a connector of your choice. Additional connectors need to be purchased separately. Many other products come with a full range of connectors.
Erik Jansma profile photo
  • Access to all parts of the data: We needed to use SQL for certain types of queries, and that was a pain point since one a few consultants were proficient in SQL. It would have been awesome if all the data was accessible with just a few clicks.
  • Machine learning: They are still a lit bit behind on integrating Machine Learning and AI models easily in their tool.
  • Not for everyone: your company might already have another data visualization being used, so using another one might be a burden in terms of cost and making employees learn a new tool.

Domo is a great up-and-coming product. There are many fantastic features that are extremely compelling to our end users, which makes Domo a great fit for our organization. As with many BI tools, there are items on the wish list that could make implementation, administration and usage easier, but I believe these will be addressed over time as the product matures and evolves. The overall concept and approach of this solution has definitely raised the bar in this area of expertise and I would like to see things advance in giving the enterprise tools that will make decision making easier and more robust in the future.

A business management platform has to be flexible to provide solutions for customers from any business environment, but that flexibility has to be delivered without requiring complex business process re-engineering and massive data conversion efforts. Domo’s web-based architecture and wealth of connectivity options allow rapid setup for any business. If your marketing company is wrestling with channel return on investment or your educational organization is drowning in data, Domo has the tools and capability to use your data and turn it into something useful for you

We have a broad audience on the Salesforce.com platform. This includes Executives (C-Level), Sales Teams (both inside and outside sales), Product and Promotional Marketing, and IT administration. The tool is used mainly by our World WideSales teams, as it is used for viewing metrics and other KPI type information that will assist our team in analyzing business trends that will make the sales opportunity process more streamlined and robust.

Alternatives Considered

acplan beats Qlik on basically everything, including price. It's technically far superior, provides far better security and unlike Qlik does not require coding when things get complex.arcplan beats Tableau and Yellowfin on capabilities. Tableau and Yellowfin are very good at what they do, but capabilities are limited, unless you call the programmers.arcplan beats SAP BO by being one product, instead of a suite with 10 components using 10 different skill sets. And, as a result, it beats SAP BO hands down on implementation costs and efforts

We've only used Domo, but I know there are a number of BI tools out there that many companies use. Domo might be more expensive but it is very powerful and easy to use and seamlessly connects to most of the software we use internally. Their support team is also excellent for when we need help building cards or troubleshooting data sets.

Collaboration and Sharing

arcplan9.0
Based on 2 answers
Security: range of possibilities, like a full AD integrated application framework, or using database security, custom solutions. Ease of sharing data: The Enage module (separately sold) is very powerful, but even standard arcplan enterprise has functions for bookmarking, sharing, mailing etc. There is also a range of possibilities to export reports to PDF, PowerPoint, Excel, Word. There are plenty of options to secure unified formatting, without limiting flexibility. It's therefore also very easy to maintain central layouts. Finally, arcplan comes standard with a scheduler, in which you can automate almost anything, including distribution of reports.

Collaboration:
  • Collaboration between business users (any everyone else on platform) by chat platform on data. Domo is the only product in this space that has built-in chat channel for every single page & card. Discussion can happen on data, both publicly (visible by those having access) or privately (visible only for users specifically mentioned).
  • Collaboration between analysts & business users. Once datasets are created, which can be by both analysts (e.g. for databases data sources) and business users (e.g. spreadsheets, cloud apps), anyone can be given access to allow them to visualize and do their own self-service analysis.
  • Collaboration between IT & analysts/business users. IT can prepare Accounts to be used by analysts/business users for them to extract data themselves using those Accounts without needing to know the credentials details.
  • Collaboration between Data Scientists and business users. Data Scientists can prepare datasets using advanced processing and plug them into Domo via R Plugin (or any other ways e.g. CSV files in S3), the cooked ready to eat datasets are then made accessible for business users to use.
Access control capabilities:
  • Domo's PDP (Personalized Data Permission) on Dataset allows granular access controls for every single rows in each datasets. They way it works makes collaboration efficient, that is a Card (chart) built on PDPed dataset will display differently depending on filtered rows granted by the PDP for the viewing user e.g. Thailand team will see only Thailand sales when viewing a sales chart, while central team will see all. A user without access granted by PDP policies will instead see empty chart.

Data Integration

There are native drivers for data sources and per data source, there may be nice, specific functions and features. Especially on ODBC and SAP, there are great possibilities. The only downside, compared to competitors, is that connectors need to be purchased separately.

DOMO has several hundred built-in connectors for various data sources and a separate application that allows data to be uploaded from pretty much any source that be connected to the application. Once the data is in DOMO, any set of tables can be joined together using a variety of tools. It is very easy to manipulate data once it's in DOMO.
